WISTERIA LODGE: Mr. Scott Eccles, a guest of Mr. Aloysius Garcia of Wisteria Lodge, awakens to find his host, the footman and the cook all had vanished in the night! Holmes and Watson enter into one of the most baffling and intriguing cases of their careers when a foreign tyrant, an English governess and an unorthodox police inspector lead them on a wild goose chase that starts with murder. THE PRIORY SCHOOL: The son of the wealthy Duke of Holdernesse is kidnapped from his preparatory school. Holmes and Watson are asked to investigate, but the trail is cold and the boy seems to have vanished. A search of the surrounding moor uncovers surprising evidence that leads the famous sleuth to the trail of the missing boy, and a murderer.
"The Priory School"
One of the most interesting stories from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes canon makes for a particularly taut and exciting episode in the Granada Television series about the famous detective. Holmes (the outstanding Jeremy Brett) and Dr. Watson (Edward Hardwicke) are summoned by the desperate founder of an exclusive prep school for boys to locate the missing son of a duke. The investigation uncovers a nefarious plot, and the major clue (a controversial one at the time Doyle wrote the story) involves nothing more than the direction of bicycle tracks. The suspense never lets up in this excellent program, and Brett and Hardwicke are at their best.
Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson are drawn into the investigation of the murder of Garcia (Arturo Venegas), for which Scott Eccles (Donald Churchill), a guest of Garcia's at Wisteria Lodge, has been arrested--possibly mistakenly. An extreme rarity in the Holmes canon, a policeman of real competence named Inspector Baynes (Freddie Jones), is also on the case, making this tale all the more interesting for Holmes fans interested in comparing and contrasting investigative styles. Brett and Hardwicke, as always, are exceptionally good as the Great Detective and his famous ally. --Tom Keogh
It's very hard to find Jeremy Brett as Sherlock Holmes, and at such a great price. I'd recommend it to anyone.Published 19 months ago by LautuLoman
