IMO 'the Speckled Band' is the best Holmes story that Conan Doyle wrote.......holds your attention from start to finish and no one plays the character better than Brett. As for the quality of the transfer, it's much better than the VHS version and quite pleasant to view. Highly recommended.

Volume 2 of MPI's great series of mysteries from Granada TV/PBS is as enjoyable as its predecessor. In "The Crooked Man", a distinguished army colonel is found dead, and his unconscious wife is the primary suspect. His regiment is unaware of the colonel's treachery in his younger days and that a man he left for dead due to it is back for revenge. But is the man with the crooked back guilty? In "The Speckled Band" the stepdaughter of a renowned but cruel doctor is about to be married and escape her unhappy home fears for her life when history repeats itself and the events that lead to her sister's death occur again. Jeremy Brett and David Burke as Holmes and Watson are on the case!

This, the second volume of the adventures of Sherlock Holmes the television series, is a welcome addition to the shelves of DVD sellers.
As the number of television shows increases at very high rates it is comforting to know that shows such as this as preserved for posterity on DVD.
AS the number of DVDs increases now that DVD player ownership has expanded to cover over 25% of US households and the number is poised to double by the end of the 2002 holiday season, the range of quality and reproduction of DVDs is also growing.
This does mean that less profitable ventures such as the Sherlock Holmes series seem doomed to limited treatments during transfer rather than get the full scale upgrading purists would prefer. For myself I would certainly prefer more but I am happy to be able to own these DVDs and watch them repeatedly.
Jeremy Brett, throught his years of portraying Holmes certainly carved out his reputation as being the ultimate Holmes. In these two early episodes one sees the stirrings of a determination by the actor to make the character his own.
There are so many aspects to these shows that it is difficult to know where to start. One of the reasons why the show developed it's avid following in my view is the attention paid to the original stories not only in the detail of portrayal but in observing the spirit of them. David Burke does excellent service in portraying Watson as an intelligent though somewhat limited colleague and pupil of the genius master and an individual in his own right who tries not to be overshadowed. This is a welcome rebuttal to the image of Watson as the buffoon who graced our screens for many years.
The two stories contained in this volume, Crooked Man and Speckled Band are both concerned with familial killings.

Jeremy Brett is superb has Holmes. I think even Basil Rathbone would have to admit this (if he were still with us). The Crooked Man is a little slow with not must mystery but the acting is excellent. The Speckled Band is true to form. Not as many episodes as the first collection but oh well.

This TV serie is terrific. This is the ultimate Sherlock Holmes adaptation. Lush sets, perfect acting... Jeremy Brett will make you forgot all the previous Holmes actors.
Unfortunately the DVD edition is far from to be of the same quality. In Volume 2 most of the problem of picture & sound of Vol1 are solved. But we still miss any making-off or commmentary.

I remember fondly watching this series when it was aired on PBS some years ago. The quality of the production as well as the stories made me go and read all the Sherlock Holmes stories. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the episodes were faithful to the stories. Even the original illustrations from the Strand magazine (where the Sherlock Holmes stories first appeared) were apparently used in setting up scenes in the episodes. Since getting volumes 1 and 2 and eagerly awaiting volume 3, I've fallen in love with these excellent adaptations all over again. They get better with repeat viewings. You pick out little details you missed the first time. I recommend these to anyone who appreciates good mysteries first of all, and those who appreciate dramatizations that are faithful to the author's vision of the story and characters.

This is yet another DVD set featuring Jeremy Brett as the super-sleuth, Sherlock Holmes. This time 2 adventures are featured and the DVD print and sound here are perfect. Another must-have for Holmes' fans and highly recommended.

Brett was the definitive Holmes, in my opinion, and the DVDs of his performances are essential to all Holmes fans. That said, these DVDs are lacking in any sort of special features and -- worst of all -- while there were four episodes included on the first volume, there are only two on the second volume - at virtually the same price as volume one. Booooooooo! Hiss!
