Editorial Reviews

Sherlock Holmes (Jeremy Brett) and Dr. John Watson (Edward Hardwicke) are brought to Hurlstone Manor by Reginald Musgrave (Michael Culver) to look into the disappearance of his butler, Brunton (James Hazeldine). Various clues (a crumpled piece of paper, a brass key, a peg of wood with string attached) suggest that Brunton's disappearance is somehow related to the "Musgrave ritual," an arcane practice compelling young Musgrave family members to recite an odd riddle that might have to do with buried treasure. Holmes's methodical approach to the problem is a lot of fun, and Brett and Hardwicke seem to be having a particularly good time outdoors, pursuing the solution under a bit of sunshine. Jeremy Paul, who adapted Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's story for this teledrama, won an Edgar Award for his script. --Tom Keogh

This episode is a gem! Reflecting all the superb production values that Grenada infuses into this series, it also elevates them into high art as they dovetail with this installment. Again, the script is ever so faithful to Conan Doyle and there is no finer interpreter of Sherlock Holmes than the late Jeremy Brett. The Musgrave Ritual being an ancient recitation passed from generation to generation, has lost all significance to the Musgrave survivor(outside of being a rite-of-passage ritual wheeled out when necessary) until Brunton the butler grasps its significance! What a co-incidence Brunton sallies forth the very moment Mr. Holmes and Dr. Watson pay a visit to Holmes' old college chum, Musgrave! And what happens next is a puzzling chain of disappearances, and the discovery of the long-forgotten meaning behind the words of The Musgrave Ritual. A meaning that culminates in a grand blend of triginometry, fishing poles, oak trees, Map deciphering and Sherlock Holmes' uncanny mind-meld into the previous night's activities and motives which brings forth even more startling answers from the incredible amateur detective! We also get a peek at the Master's tussle with that ghastly "7% solution" and Watson's dismay at its presence (Edward Hardwick again becoming a flawless Dr. Watson). Patrick Gowers' music haunts the scenery and Arthurian legend permeates every aspect of this grand, grand, wonderful Victorian baffler. All hail Jeremy Brett! All hail Sherlock Holmes!

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Dr. Lyndon Smith on April 5, 1999
This production is an inspired and highly entertaining adaptation of Conan-Doyle's story - 'The Musgrave Ritual'. Granada Television made the excellent choice of Baddesley Clinton as a filming location; and Jeremy Brett and Edward Hardwicke are as brilliant as usual. This episode is in fact hard to fault in any way; the performances and photography are excellent. Brett's interpretation of the role is intelligent, dynamic, and artistically creative. The Musgrave Ritual is a good story which has been stylishly produced and adapted in a manner which is sympathetic to the spirit of the original story. Full of yearning Victorian nostalgia for the late Tudor period, all in all it makes one wish to visit an English country estate - hugely entertaining! - Lyndon Smith.

I rate on several levels, and this episode rates excellent on 1)plot 2)acting 3)location and photography. The setting of the mystery is beautiful; the "new" side of Holmes' character is amusing (I had to laugh at his behaviour) and the Musgrave Ritual's reward after the wonderful suspense of the hunt was truly a unique treasure. I enjoyed Holmes' human side - Jeremy Brett's portrayal of him as almost embarassing Dr. Watson, and Edward Hardwicke's facial expressions - tolerant, weary, amused, forgiving - truly a "brick" and a friend to Holmes. I find his portrayal of Dr. Watson is convincing as a medical man, intelligent in his own right without any inferiority.

This is one of my favorites! It is just like the conan Doyle book with the mysterious ritual. Brett's acting is perfect for the role! Edward Hardwicke is perfect for Dr. Watson. This is a treasure as it is imitated perfectly from the book. A great film!
