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 Problem of Thor Bridge (1991) The mysterious death of the wife of wealthy J. Neil Gibson takes Holmes to a picturesque country estate. Here, while indulging in a little archery, the detective searches for evidence to what at first seems a case of murder. But he uncovers some extraordinary clues on Thor Bridge.
The Disappearance of Lady Frances Carfax (1991) Holmes described this case as an 'example of that temporary eclipse to which even the best balanced mind may be exposed'. In this puzzle the mysterious wanderings about Europe of the beautiful Lady Frances and the part played by the enigmatic Albert Schlessinger and the Earl of Rufton stretch Holmes' detective skills to the limit.
