    Summary

    This is a complete collection of episode reviews for the Sherlock Holmes series filmed and broadcast between 1984 and 1995 by Granada Television (now ITV Granada) starring Jeremy Brett as Sherlock Holmes and David Burke & Edward Hardwicke as Dr. Watson. I re/watched the whole series in the summer of 2017, because the entire world was on fire and I needed a diversion. I have been reading Holmes and Watson as a couple for at least 30 years now, so that perspective informs all of these reviews. There are occasional comparisons to what happened with Sherlock. Also, I usually discuss the canon story on which any given episode was based. As with all the other rewatches posted here, I am critical, but always from a place of love.

     

    All of these reviews were first posted to tumblr and will be cross-posted more or less intact. There may have to be slight adjustments made depending on whether AO3 treats the GIFs properly. Enjoy them again, or for the first time!

    Summary

    Holmes has an unusual manner of dealing with failure. ACD. Crack.

    I rubbed my face with my hand. “You want me to believe that you somehow raised the late Mister James Phillimore for the purposes of birching you?”

    Summary

    Before Holmes met Watson, he met a young pickpocket...

    Sherlock Holmes, consulting detective to ... nobody in particular, actually, is struggling to make his mark on the world of criminal investigation. In fact, his career looks doomed to failure before it's even really begun.

    Falling behind on his rent payments and forced to rely on his increasingly exasperated brother for handouts, Holmes takes on a seemingly pointless case involving a burglary in which nothing is stolen.

    But, when his pocket is picked, Holmes spots a business opportunity that might just help to revitalise his flagging fortunes.

    Summary

    The year is 1920: the Great War is over, and Sherlock Holmes has retreated to his cottage in Sussex in search of privacy and quiet. But a mystery is unfolding in the little village of Fulworth, and Holmes can't resist getting involved. Having John Watson at his side during a rare weekend visit is a further temptation, and together they delve into a case of murder and mayhem that threatens the whole town. The reminder of their younger days and the excitement that first brought them together rekindles dormant affection, and long-suffered secrets are reluctantly, inevitably revealed.
