I knew little of this offering, but am such a Holmes freak I had to order it. Frewer is absolutely awful, and certainly responsible for making these four movies unbearable.
These films are only slightly better than Christopher Lee's German production of "Sherlock Holmes and the Deadly Necklace".
Don't be tempted by the low price. This set is not worth the price of postage. Save your money for the MPI Rathbone series.

I have suffered through many less than entertaining Holmes efforts in my 63 years. There's been Doyle's shoddy later works, awful prints of Arthur Wontner's films, lumbering Jeremy Brett episodes that were too heavily padded, the dull deadly necklace, the recent muddled case of evil, and Reginald Owen's study in slumber. The Sherlock Holmes Collection, on the other hand, is a godsend. It may not be pure Doyle, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Have you tried reading the Three Gables lately? How about the Creeping Man?
Matt Frewer has his detractors, but things are never dull or dreary with him involved. He seems to be having fun. I did the same while watching him. He reminded me of the comedic tone of the better Rathbone and Bruce efforts, the humorous moments in Caine and Kingsley's Without A Clue, and the sense of fun of the Ronald Howard series. Kenneth Welsh is a splendid Watson. Welsh has become my favorite of all cinematic Watsons. His interpay with Frewer is delightful.
The relationship between Mycroft and Sherlock is most interesting. It's a tangled skein to be sure. It shows that Frewer's Holmes can be more that just humorous. The same is true of Holmes' interaction with the alluring Irene Adler. Frewer is wonderful in those scenes. Miss Adler knows just how to get under his skin. This is a fine collection. It may not be everybody's cup of tea, but I found it to be an extremely lively and entertaining set.

Matt Frewer is completely miscast as SHERLOCK HOLMES in these valiant attempts to bring Arthur Conan Doyle's classic characters to life. Frewer's interpretation of the great detective borders on the ludicrous, made all the more obvious because everything else in these films works just fine. Excellent settings, photography and supporting cast are all wasted due to Frewer's amateurish, high-school level acting, filled with eccentric ticks and facial twitches that approach comedic proportions. These films are worth seeing just to experience Frewer's abysmally fake British accent.
They're like the "Plan 9" of Sherlock Holmes movies.
Since these Sherlock Holmes TV movies were filmed in Canada, Frewer might have been chosen for the lead role because, as a Canadian, he fulfilled the quota of casting Canadians in key roles which allowed the producers to get certain tax breaks in the production. He certainly wasn't chosen because of his suitability to play the part. Thankfully, Frewer's acting becomes slightly less ridiculous as the series progressed, but he still remains the goofiest Holmes ever!
This series is best suited for people who think Kevin Sorbo's "Hercules" was faithful to the ancient Latin texts.

The various reviews of this release indicate some slight disagreement as to its worth. The cause of the dispute is clearly the portrayal of Holmes. With my rating on record I will offer my opinion on the subject.
Firstly I consider myself a dedicated and serious Sherlockian. As such I believe that Matt Frewer is an excellent Holmes - in fact one of the best that I have seen (perhaps second only to Jeremy Brett). His main eccentricity is his youth - but experts declare that at the time of the Hound escapade Holmes was less than 35 years of age. Mr. Frewer fits this requirement perfectly. His physical appearance also is ideal. This Holmes seems to possess considerable nervous energy and is downright playful at times with Dr. Watson. We know that Holmes was subject to considerable mood swings; this Holmes is preponderantly upbeat.
This Dr. Watson, while himself satisfactory, makes an odd mix with this Holmes. Watson was supposed to be about 7 years older than Holmes; here he looks more like 25 years his senior. Indeed it sometimes seems that it is Watson who is the solid voice of reason, calming his occasionally overemotional associate. Anyone who likes a human Holmes will appreciate this arrangement. A simplified précis of Frewer/Holmes is that it is the exact opposite of Rathbone/Holmes.
The comment of one reviewer regarding incompetence of the acting I consider as purest twaddle from someone who simply didn't like this representation of Holmes. All the acting is professional and creditable.
My rating of the four episodes presented here: Hound - 5 stars, Sign of Four - 5 stars, Royal Scandal - 2 .5 stars, Whitechapel Vampire - 4 stars.
The two canonical novels are surprisingly good, due to excellent story editing and scripts.

These storys are apparently put out by Hallmark. The filming is fine and provides a nice atmosphere and the performance by Kenneth Welsh as Dr. Watson is exceptional--however, the same cannot be said for Matt Frewer as Holmes. While his performance is better than Ronald Howard--it is no where near the standards of Basil Rathbone or my favorite Holmes-Jeremy Brett. These stories are still worth watching-and a good value! The strange division of "The Royal Scandal"-has no rational explanation--as this is a 2 disc set--with about 210 minutes on disc 1 and 150 minutes on disc 2--why it wasn't neatly divided ito 2 complete storys per disc is beyond me. While a minor complaint--I feel it's a valid complaint. Providing one does not expect a Brett/Rathbone performance from Frewer--these discs can be enjoyed--and Welsh is fantastic as Watson.
