Video-wise, I'm in a Sherlock Holmes frame of mind lately. I watched the first disk of the 1971 series 'The Rivals of Sherlock Holmes' and an episode from the 1965 series starring Peter Cushing and Nigel Stock. Only five episodes remain of that series and based on "The Hound Of The Baskervilles", it looks pretty good.

Here's a later TV movie from the mid-1980's, also starring Cushing as Holmes, but this time with Sir John Mills as Dr. Watson. If I ever find a worthy splainin for the recasting of David Burke with Edward Hardwicked in the Jeremy Brett series, I think it would also apply to the TV dimension in which we find Cushing's consulting detective.

I hope you enjoy!
