Sherlock Holmes is the greatest of all fictional detectives, as famous for his deerstalker and pipe, as his legendary powers of observation and deduction. He is an aloof and private man driven by a fierce intellect that gives him astounding brilliance and unfathomable eccentricity in equal measure. Jeremy Brett, the definitive Holmes, stars in two beautiful adaptations taken from the classic ITV series.
The Mazarin Stone (1994) Holmes (Jeremy Brett) is asked on behalf of the Prime Minister to find the stolen crown jewel, the Mazarin Stone. While Holmes pursues his prime suspect, the infamous Count Sylvius (Jon Finch), Watson (Edward Hardwicke) works on a separate case involving an American named John Garrideb (Gavan O'Herlihy). It is only when Holmes links Count Sylvius to John Garrideb that the two cases are joined together. Holmes and Watson have to survive a dramatic confrontation before they can resolve the tangled web of crime and deceit.
The Cardboard Box (1994) When a spinster receives a grisly package containing two severed human ears Holmes (Jeremy Brett) is called in to comment. Dismissing the police opinion that it is all just a sick prank, Holmes begins his investigations into a tale of sibling jealousy and betrayal. As Holmes closes in on the killer he puts his own life in jeopardy to bring an end to the terrible killings.
