Sherlock Holmes (tv)

The Boston Phoenix

DIRECTED BY: Dr. Various

REVIEWED: 10-27-97

Sherlock Holmes (1984-94; 43 episodes). Few detective series qualify for the horror genre (unless you count the "I thought he was dead!" guest stars on Murder She Wrote), but the Victorian setting and hints of the supernatural in Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's stories make for an exception. The most successful TV version of this character was the British series starring Jeremy Brett, which ran on PBS's Mystery! a few years after premiering overseas. All of these episodes, most of them an hour long, have been released on video, including "The Hound of the Baskervilles" and "The Last Vampyre."
