    From the later years of the long-running Granada Television series, this episode from the Sherlock Holmes canon features actor Jeremy Brett in a particularly strenuous and emotionally compelling performance as the Great Detective. Following Holmes's uncharacteristically provocative threat to expose Culverton Smith (Jonathan Hyde)--a planter with an expertise in rare poisons--as a murderer, Holmes becomes mortally ill and delirious. Denouncing the medical expertise of his friend Dr. Watson (Edward Hardwicke) as amateurish (the good doctor having been summoned to help the ailing sleuth), the feverish Holmes ends up begging for his life from the cold-blooded Smith. The late Brett, who was actually suffering from cardiac problems at the time, certainly looks the part of the doomed hero, and his urgency in the role is haunting and poignant. --Tom Keogh

    An excellent film, May 4, 2003 Reviewer: An Amazon.com Customer In Sir A. Conan Doyle's original story, THE ADVENTURE OF THE DYING DETECTIVE, a reference is made to Holme's knowing too much about the death of a certain young Victor Savage. In this delightful show, we discover what Holmes had to do with the death of this young man. What did he have to do with it, you ask? You'll have to watch the film to find out, and I can guarentee that it's a good way to spend 50 minutes.
