Editorial Reviews

Sherlock Holmes...as you've never seen him before!
This exciting DVD release contains 2, 4-part TV Mini-Series productions based on the beloved Sir Arthur Conan Doyle character.
Sherlock Holmes & The Leading Lady
Holmes (Christopher Lee) and Watston (Patrick Macnee) are summoned to recover a stolen bomb detonator device that Holmes fears will be used to kill the Austro-Hungarian Emperor, Franz Joseph. Complicating matters is the appearance of Holmes old flame, opera singer Irene Adler (Morgan Fairchild), whom Holmes discovers he still loves. Set against a backdrop of international havoc, Holmes and Watson face dangers unlike any they ve faced before!
Sherlock Holmes and the Incident at Victoria Falls
Holmes must save the world s most famous diamond, The Star of Africa. On route via Africa s Orient Express, someone is killed and one of the passengers is the murderer. While attempting to solve the case, our heroes encounter ex-President Teddy Roosevelt (Claude Akins), Lily Langtry (Jenny Seagrove) and Giuseppe Marconi, all of whom become suspects! With time running out and his own life in jeopardy, how does Holmes save the day? Elementary, my dear...

As you can see in the photo on this product page, the DVD cover states that these movies were digitally restored, so that is why I decided to buy this DVD set. I've seen earlier DVD releases and this video quality is actually better and the movies look nice on my HD TV.

This set does not contain subtitles or any DVD Extras.
This package contains 1 DVD for each movie, and each movie is broken into 2 parts as was done when they were originally shown on US TV as a 2 part miniseries.
All of the 4 parts are approximately 1 hour 32 minutes in length, meaning that the total run time of each movie is approximately 184 minutes.

The front cover of this DVD also implies that both movies are complete versions so they are presumably uncut in any way, but I don't know how to verify this because I've seen different run times given for cut and uncut versions. For instance, Madacy released these films separately on DVD in 2006 and gives slightly longer run times of 194 minutes, but I don't think that the video is digitally restored. Then in 2007 Madacy released this DVD package: Sherlock Holmes: Collector's Edition (Five-Disk Edition, Tin packaging)

These movies were filmed in 1991 and 1992, and Christopher Lee who plays Sherlock Holmes was 69-70 years old when they were filmed, so I want to make the point that we here have an older and slower version of Holmes rather than the typical younger character who is usually protrayed as being physically and mentally invulnerable. This Holmes feels his age and states that his powers are not as great as they used to be, and he is portrayed as being more human and fallible.

Holmes has aged, graceful silver fox, and is planning to retire. The stalwart Dr Watson dons his bowler and pistol again, and the game is afoot! A worthy addition to the Canon. My husband and I enjoyed this over the Christmas holidays, and found this delightful! Do not draw conclusions before you have all the facts, friends, but what looks like a simple errand for the Crown over a jewel of dubious ownership, and train trips, and chance encounters with women of varied notoriety,add to the fine flavor of these stories. There are 2 discs in the package, and 2 episodes per disc;a good value. Pity this was never shown on US tv, but now, we can all be amazed by the astute deductions and the grand good time to be had. Lee is imposing and also displays some humor, and is an admirable Sherlock. McNee excells as Dr. Watson: not the Avenger, John Steed, we saw years ago, but a more mature companion who blends well with Lee. I was disappointed only in the character-type of Mycroft, being played by a much slimmer and shorter man than Homes; in my books, Mycroft was always large and imposing! The acting is good, it just seemed odd that Mycroft was shorter, but then again, Christopher Lee is over 6 feet tall, and Mycroft would have had to come in at 7 feet tall! This small point aside, it was thoroughly enjoyable to watch!

I have owned the tin packaged dvd's of these episodes since they first came out and I am happy to report that this newer release actually has been remastered and plays very nicely on a blu-ray player and a small screen, although they are not blu-ray. For once something really has been remastered, a nice surprise. Fans of Conan Doyle will probably not like this Sherlock, but fans of Christopher Lee and Patrick MacNee will probably enjoy the rapport that these two great actors have managed to create. I like to see an off-beat Sherlock once in a while (see Michael Caine in WITHOUT A CLUE). It makes a change. These very long and convuluted stories manage to interweave other real life celebrities, such as Theodore Roosevelt, and travel to interesting foreign locations, such as Africa and Luxembourg (standing in for Vienna). The plots wander around so much I defy you to explain them after seeing these episodes once, but that's part of the fun (and the humor). Very entertaining.

These two miniseries are a bit lengthy. A standard feature-length format would have been fine. But Christopher Lee and Patrick Macnee are delightful together. Their Holmes and Watson are considerably older than we're accustomed to...but they play it for all it's worth and it's thus worth a lot! The productions (with the exception of the music score for the second one, which is too much synthesizer and not enough real orchestra) are fine. I wish they had made more of these. The current SHERLOCK "series" on BBC with Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman is quite entertaining...but is it worth the wait? And just how long might we expect these to go on? I'll be revisiting the Lee/Macnee films again and again.

Long before forensic science, there was Sherlock Holmes. These films are from the early days of television and mini-series popularity. Christopher Lee is a terrific Holmes, the scripts are excellent, and the acting is much better than most you see today. No CGI to gum up the story, which allows your imagination to enhance the experience. Sherlock Holmes lovers, you'll enjoy this collection and so will your families.
