Literatures greatest sleuths are brought to life by the actors born to play the roles. As portrayed by Peter Cushing, the definitive Sherlock Holmes exercises his legendary deductive skills in five classic BBC productions, including The Hound of the Baskervilles, A Study in Scarlet and The Sign of Four.

Sherlock Holmes portrayed by Mr. Cushing is pretty good,these are the tv versions from I believe the 70's and don't have the quality of the other 2 sleuths. Not to berate Mr. Cushing he is an excellent actor,but to me he is always Dr. Von Helsing or Dr. Frankenstein. I can give the 2nd best rating as Sherlock and since I am a Sherlock collector that is very high. Buy this set if you are starting out on these sleuths,if you are reliving watching them years ago or if you just want a sample set to give as a gift. For the price well worth it.
Poirot.. usually I am a big fun, but it seems the ones they chosen were not the best AND were the ones where they changed the story/ending. Bad bad bad. I'm a fan of true to the novel, not updated to whatever is current to today's day and age. Acting is still good, I do always enjoy David Suchet.
And last.. and most certainly least.. gag.. when I realized this wasn't Jeremy Brett.. I then decided to watch everything first and having left me to these as last. I'm a massive fan of both Jeremy Brett in Granada's Sherlock Holmes (Sherlock Holmes: The Complete Granada Television Series) and Benedict Cumberbatch, in BBC's latest Sherlock (Sherlock: Season One). I'm sure in it's period, this perhaps was good. I was expecting a movie, even a tv show.. no no. It looks like a staged theatre drama on film. I'm sure Peter Cushing was a great actor, but the way this was shot and filmed.. is badly dated. And just bad. Watson (in like some other series) is the comedy relief. And he seems old and dense. Everyone seems to be over acting. I'm watching the first episode.. and it will be my last. I would only watch this again for comedic relief.. doing something else..Read more ›
