    From the Back Cover
    Four mysterious cases for Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson to solve…

    The Hound of the Baskervilles - The mysterious death of Sir Charles Baskerville is blamed on a long-standing curse that has followed the Baskerville family for two hundred years. Enigmatic sleuth Sherlock Holmes is on the case to uncover the truth about a monstrous, supernatural hound who roams the moors, waiting to attack the latest heir to the Baskerville estate.

    The Sign of Four - Once every year, exceedingly proper Englishwoman Mary Morstan receives the same anonymous package in the mail: a single pearl of extraordinary beauty and untold value. Most women would be flattered and intrigued, but for Mary it's an unnerving experience. She enlists the aid of the great and legendary detective Sherlock Holmes. The Sign of Four is engaging, deductive storytelling at its thrilling best.

    The Case of the Whitechapel Vampire - Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson are now up against the unnatural forces of evil as an apparent vampire killer flies loose in London's impoverished Whitechapel district. As bizarre events unfold, Holmes also finds himself questioning what he holds most dear: logic. He may be a natural when it comes to solving crimes, but without divine intervention, how can he ever hope to solve one as unnatural as this?

    The Royal Scandal - The King of Bohemia is being blackmailed by legendary opera star Irene Adler, threatening to destroy his reputation with photographic proof of their illicit affair. her ransom? The king's hand in marriage. Watson believes a case of sexual blackmail is beneath the talents of Sherlock Holmes. But Holmes knows better, he knows the woman in question. Irene has much loftier ambitions, and when murder becomes part of the game, Holmes moves in on the extraordinarily cunning songbird.

    Starring Matt Frewer as Sherlock Holmes and Kenneth Welsh as Dr. Watson. Hallmark Home Entertainment 2000-2002, 360 minutes.

    1 of 1 people found the following review helpful: Good Fun Versions NOT FOR PURISTS, August 27, 2003 Reviewer: jemjr from Buffalo, NY United States Baker Street Regulars will have epileptic seizures over these adaptations of Holmes. They are not exact reproductions of Conan Doyle, but they are very enjoyable if you are willing to suspend belief. Each story could most accurately be said to be "suggested" by the Doyle original, than a strict version. So if you know the stories well, be prepaired for a few surprises. Matt Frewer at first seems to be giving a a very mannered version of Holmes, almost as if he is doing a comic impression, but on closer examination he is a Sherlock who is laughing at what he considers inferior humans. It is a very different Holmes and once you get used to it, a valid impression of a person who considers that he has a superior intellect to every other person. Keneth Welsh is an exceellent Watson. He is the perfect counterpoint to Frewer's Holmes. Some of the looks he gives Holmes are priceless. All the casting is excellent. Canada does a great job of substituting for Victorian England. For anyone looking for some enjoyable mysteries and puzzels, these are good stories. It is a real bargin to get 4 hour and a half productions for this price. For Holmes purists, don't rip them apart, just forget them and watch other versions.
