Sherlock Holmes (1965)

Sherlock Holmes (1965).

Episodes from a BBC series starring Peter Cushing as Holmes. This can be a bit confusing, as Cushing also played Holmes in the Hammer The Hound of the Baskervilles (1959).

Shot mostly on video but with good color and detail. The 50 minute episodes included are:

Only for Holmes die-hards. Not bad in themselves for low-budget TV, but they are out-done in every way by the later Jeremy Brett/Granada series. On the other hand Cushing's Holmes is less eccentric than Brett's and maybe closer to the text.

A different actor played Holmes in earlier episodes.
