9. "All 3 shows have their own angle." USA Today, December 6, 2002: E.02.

"Need a scorecard to keep track of NBC's multiplying Law & Orders? Most fans know what distinguishes the 'mother' series, which premiered in 1990...Then came the spinoffs: Special Victims Unit...launched in 1999.... Criminal Intent...goes into the mind of the perpetrator and often leads up to the crime rather than following its aftermath. 'From the very first day, we said (Criminal Intent) is Sherlock Holmes,' Wolf says. 'That's the archetype. And that's what attracted (star) Vincent (D'Onofrio). Because Sherlock Holmes is, while very procedural, the most idiosyncratic of the major detectives. It's a voyage of discovery through his eyes. Kate (Erbe) is Dr. Watson. Jamey (Sheridan) is Lestat [sic]. It kind of breaks down very evenly.'..."

For 40 years, a fossil skull discovered in Piltdown, England, was hailed as the missing link between apes and humans. Then, in 1953, new scientific tests revealed the shocking truth-"Piltdown Man" was a fake! But who could have perpetrated the hoax? Was it the amateur archaeologist, Charles Dawson, who dug up most of the bones? Or the eminent museum curator, Sir Arthur Smith Woodward of Britain's Natural History Museum, who won fame by presenting the reconstructed skull to an eager public in 1912? Could it even have been Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the creator of Sherlock Holmes, who lived near Piltdown? With more red herrings and false trails than an Agatha Christie whodunit, The Boldest Hoax digs into intriguing new clues from archives at the Natural History Museum, and delves into the skullduggery and national pride that led a handful of faked bones to hoodwink a generation of leading scientists. Go deep into the archives of Britain's Natural History Museum, where intriguing documents shed new light on this notorious case."--Container.

Passing reference to Holmes. "...So in an attempt to unlock the secret of this little mystery, I put on my Sherlock Holmes cap, not realizing just how terribly appropriate it was, and called NHK the next morning. It seemed the case bore a striking resemblance to last year's famed 'Case of the Misfiled X-Files,' in which TV Asahi decided to air that show, not in order, but in the order network executives preferred....That catchall excuse 'scheduling' was offered, as well as the fact that there was much greater demand for Sherlock Holmes, which will return in March, sometime between sumo and Diet debates...."

Closed captioned. Participants: Narrator: Salome Jens. directed by Blaine Baggett ; written by Blaine Baggett & Margaret Koval & Jay Winter ; produced by Margaret Koval.; Broken hopes, broken families, broken lives: the world at the end of the Great War was full of them. This final episode explores the aftermath of the war and the failed peace. For the"lost generation", the war would be without end. Living reminders were everywhere: men with missing limbs, mutilated faces, and shaking bodies. And then there were the dead, most who remained hundreds, sometimes thousands of miles away on the battlefields where they fell. The question "Why did they have to die?" would haunt the generation of survivors. People dealt with grief in different ways. Artists painted what they had seen. Writers tried writing it out of their systems. Millions of the bereaved sought relief from their ghostly memories through spiritualism -- communicating with the dead. Among the main proponents was Arthur Conan Doyle, creator of Sherlock Holmes, who gave up writing to devote himself to the movement. For some German soldiers, a bitter memory was the march home from the war. They had come back as an army, defeated but unbowed. Many of them believed they had been betrayed at home -- "stabbed in the back". This accusation would launch the political career of Adolf Hitler and bring on the second global war of the 20th century.

"Now this week, USA offers a new take on an old detective favorite, Sherlock Holmes, cracking his first big crime in Case of Evil. What better lead-in could you have for Monk than Holmes, the frighteningly observant character who turned doing the 'detecting, deducing thing' into a popular genre. A bit overly impressed by his own now-celebrated skills, Holmes moves on to London's latest crime spree: the systematic elimination of the city's opium dealers. For help, he turns to the city's initially reluctant coroner, Dr. Watson (Roger Morlidge), who soon becomes Sherlock's greatest fan. He also must rely on his brother, Mycroft (Richard E. Grant), his mentor and the guiding force behind his sleuthing...."

A production of Discovery Channel in association with James Burke and Langham Productions. Producer, James Burke ; director, Charles Mapleston ; executive producer, Michael Latham ; director of photography, Jim O'Donnell ; sound, Tom Oliver.; In touch: A nuclear scientist ponders the problem of fusion in 1951, unleashing a series of connections that encompass superconductors, the Eiffel Tower, the Statue of Liberty, King George III, modern oceanography, the Versailles gardens, Pagoda Mania, and handwriting analysis, to arrive at the Global Net. Through this chain of unexpected connections, you can "stay in touch". Hit the water: Start in the cockpit of a Tornado fighter bomber, dip into the history of margarine and plankton, travel to 18th century Turkey to investigate small pox innoculations, dance at the ballet Coppelia, spend time with Voltaire, blow up a dam in Norway with a British commando team and end up, through the intimate world of unexpected connections, discovering exactly why Hitler never managed to harness the power of the atomic bomb. Fire from the sky: Go from the majestic beauty of Iceland's geysers to the Allies firebombing of Hamburg in World War II, stop by Stonehenge, chat with Kaballists, visit with Martin Luther, Ozcander, Tycho Brahe, and Mary, Queen of Scots, then head to the magnetic North Pole. The invention of gin and tonic will set you back on course to the discovery that mixing rubber with gasoline makes it burn slower--an integral component of any firebombing. A special place: Journey 400 years into the past to connect famous sleuths and popular destinations through Dutch wind tunnels and aristocratic World War I fighter aces. Discover how Caribbean smugglers and bird-painters led to Russian skullduggery, and ultimately to a final beauty spot where hundreds of Americans get drenched every day. Elementary stuff: Begin the journey with miracles and spiritualism and end with the greatest detective of them all. Some of the clues connect 20th century thought-transference and radio with bananna republics and postage stamps. Learn how Scottish rebels and North Carolina pine trees revolutionized the French navy, and how contextual perception led to Sherlock Holmes. Life is no picnic: Learn the connection between coffee served during World War II and 19th century theories of evolution through the invention of nylon and the Star Spangled Banner. Discover how a new method for calculating astronomical dates and the death of Descartes led to the creation of the Royal Society, and how the jellyfish made Charles Darwin famous. An invisible object: Travel 500 years into the past to connect mysterious black holes in space with modern fast food, via thrills and spills on the Pony Express and the capture of Joan of Arc. Learn how a gift for Catherine de Medici led to modern techniques for pasteurization and, eventually, the first vending machine. Drop the apple: With the discovery of calamine, James Smithson, the benefactor of the Smithsonian Institution, did a lot for sunburns, poison ivy and diaper rash. Calamine is one of the most useful and unusual minerals because it gives off electricity, leading to Einstein's theory of relativity and to the creation of the atomic bomb. What's in a name?: A good breakfast leads to corn cob garbage--which isn't garbage at all. It is used to create resin for bonding. Learn how this led to the creation of the tractor and the diesel engine and, surprisingly, the Smithsonian Institution in Washington D.C. Feedback: Look at the use of feedback in the 21st century. Learn how the concept originated in the vineyards of France and how the Humane Society, drowning, shipping, a new diet and Kellogg's Corn Flakes are all related.

"There were many things that made the Granada 'Sherlock Holmes' series such a great success, and one of the most important was careful preparation and attention to detail on the part of producer Michael Cox. Part of that preliminary work was the creation by Cox, associate producer Stuart Doughty, and researcher Nicky Cooney, of an 80-page detailed production guide, extracted from the Canon and issued as a stapled handbook to those who worked on the series. And now that background bible is available to those who would like to see their work, with a new foreword by Cox."

"As Sherlock Holmes returns to the stage, Ian Johns dons his deerstalker to investigate the pursuit of the whole sleuth. It's quite elementary, if you think about it. Sherlock Holmes was a woman who disguised herself as a man. That high voice and hairless chin, that secrecy about the past and the mysterious childhood. That love of dissembling. How else could a Victorian woman solve crimes in such a chauvinistic age? Curiously, Holmes's trusty chronicler Dr Watson (and Arthur Conan Doyle) failed to note this fact. But Therese Lentz did with her 1994 play 221B Baker Street. When it comes to the world's greatest detective, the theatre has often lifted the curtain on some lesser known aspect of his life. But finding the right tone has always been a three-pipe problem. 'It's the biggest hurdle,' admits the actor-turned-playwright Simon Williams, whose new version of The Hound of the Baskervilles opens this week at the Belgrade in Coventry. 'If it's too reverential and literal then you simply end up with a flat transcription. The best adaptations take a few liberties.'..."

"Although their hasty flickering worlds have little to do with Arthur Conan Doyle, there will only ever be one quicksilver-sardonic Sherlock Holmes, and, bumbling sweetly beside him, only one Watson. Basil Rathbone, like a sneering rapier, and Nigel Bruce first breathed life into the duo for 20th Century Fox's Hound of the Baskervilles (1939) and the same year's follow-up, The Adventures of ... Both films were moody main features, faithful to Conan Doyle in plot and period. Between 1942-1946 Universal employed the pair to reprise the roles in 12 fine B-movies, transposing Holmes and Watson to (then) modern times. Showing this week are five of these: Sherlock Holmes and the Secret Weapon (1942), The Pearl of Death (1944), Pursuit to Algiers (1945), House of Fear (1945) and The Woman in Green (1945), all directed by Roy William Neil...."

Criticizes the acceptance of a fundamentalist approach to the evidence used in criminal investigation as popularized in the TV program "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation." Theme of the program; Overview of detective characters in literature; Statistics on crime and criminal investigations; Result of a politicized intelligence report. Includes references to Doyle and Holmes. "...The popularity of the geek detective is nothing new. Arthur Conan Doyle gave us Sherlock Holmes, whose 221 B Baker apartment was regularly filled with the smoke and smells of some experiment and whose desk always had a stack of obscure but relevant scientific monographs. Like Grissom, Holmes loved putting his crime scene evidence under the magnifying glass, checking out footprints, soil samples, and the wear pattern on a pair of boots. Agatha Christie's master detective, Hercule Poirot, did not share Holmes' penchant for lab work, but he, too, had limitless faith in 'the little grey cells' of his very clever brain and was supremely confident in the ability of human intelligence to solve life's most daunting mysteries..." Sidebar on memorable detectives notes "The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes (Granada Television, 1984-1994). William Gillette played Holmes on the stage for more than three decades and Basil Rathbone portrayed him in 16 films, but most contemporary fans agree that Jeremy Brett's performance in this British TV series has set the gold standard. In the Adventures, Return, Casebook, and Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes, as well as several TV films made from Conan Doyle's longer stories, Brett gives a meticulous and studied performance of the cerebral but impassioned detective's quest for the truth of the matter."

Now two more actors are to take on the challenge of playing the heroic detective in a TV battle between rival interpretations, one ITV, the other BBC, which is likely to equal the struggle between Holmes and Moriarty atop the Reichenbach Falls. In the ITV corner is Stephen Fry, a passionate scholar of the work of the character's creator, Arthur Conan Doyle....Over in the BBC corner is a relative newcomer, Rupert Everett, 45, the glamorous Hollywood star who made his name on the British stage in the early Eighties....Members of the Sherlock Holmes Society of London are poised to make their judgment and, at first sight, neither actor appears to pass muster...."

2. Hendry, Steve. "Television: Dr Watson's Accent is so Elementary for Paterson." Sunday Mail, March 25, 2007: 15.

"Bill Paterson did some sleuthing of his own when he took on the role of Sherlock Holmes sidekick, Dr Watson. The Scots actor takes on the iconic role in new series Sherlock Holmes and the Baker Street Irregulars after extensive research into the author and decided to give his own Glasgow accent to the character in tribute to his creator, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. He said: 'I think Watson is how Conan Doyle saw himself. He's a medical man and a Scotsman, as was Conan Doyle. But Watson is very seldom played as Scottish so this was an ideal opportunity for me as I'm from Glasgow. It makes for an interesting contrast with Holmes...."

"But [Watson] is very seldom played as Scottish so this was an ideal opportunity for me as I'm from Glasgow. It makes for an interesting contrast with Holmes. [Bill Paterson], 61, star of BBC Scotland supernatural drama Sea Of Souls, hit movies including Miss Potter with Renee Zellweger and Ewan McGregor, and new film Amazing Grace, could not resist the chance to play Watson. "I don't know how many times the Irregulars pop up in the original stories but they are a gang of ruffians who appear in [Holmes]' office, much to Watson's agony.

1. Harrington, Ellen Burton. "Nation, identity and the fascination with forensic science in Sherlock Holmes and CSI." International Journal of Cultural Studies 10, no. 3 (2007): 365-382.

"Although the popular television series CSI: Crime Scene Investigation presents cutting-edge images and laboratory techniques, it reiterates the reassuring ideological message and the glorification of the man of science that typify Doyle's Sherlock Holmes stories. While the Holmes stories use reassuring, formulaic narratives to consolidate a normative national identity and counter increasing disenchantment with empire, CSI replays a similar sort of procedural detective story to reassure viewers with the fantasy that the United States can be secured amidst threats of violence and terrorism, that individual identity, as well as national identity, can be fixed and scientifically assured."

The article reviews "Father Brown, DVD 2-vol. boxed set," a collection of the episodes of the television program "Father Brown," released on DVD format. Includes a passing reference to Doyle. "...Neither is it surprising that, like the celebrated sleuths of Agatha Christie, Dorothy Sayers, P.D. James, Conan Doyle and such, Father Brown should have made his way to the screen. What is surprising, however is that it has taken such a time for these clever tales to be widely available in video for fans of the genre. Originally aired in this country on PBS Mystery! in 1982, Acorn Media has gathered and released this set of seven Father Brown stories, starring Kenneth More as the skillful clergyman-detective...."

Hardly fiendishness of Moriarty standards, you'll agree but perhaps a matter for the semantics police to look into.

"The great amateur detective is back, and I rather wish he wasn't. The Memoirs Of Sherlock Holmes (Granada) is still being attributed to Arthur Conan Doyle, but any fool can ascertain that it's the work of Jeremy Paul, who used to adapt Doyle's stories but now writes his own. The scripts have become coarser and so has the acting. The first episode in the new series, The Three Gables, tells of a wicked lady, Isadora Klein, who likes her lovers young, athletic and titled...."

"Mike is said to have invented the job on a succession of live entertainment shows. He went on to produce his richest work in the sixties and seventies during his association with Peter Eckersley, producer and head of drama at Granada. This led on to Maupassant, The Nearly Man, A Family At War, dozens of episodes of Country Matters and films directed by the likes of Michael Apted, Ken Russell and Mike Newell.; The least pretentious of men, he was impatient only with pretentiousness and prevarication. His generosity was tempered by abhorrence of self-appointed prefects - and a sometimes wicked sense of humour. He would deliver verdicts on the mighty with apparent innocuous finality. 'Yes I remember him,' he said quietly of someone of para-executive importance in the BBC, currently an ITV baron. 'Was a trainee in the sixties. Nice man. Not a scintilla of talent.'; When he left Granada in 1989 it was to go to France to work with directors like Claude Goretta and Jose Pinhero and to recreate Maigret for French television. [Mike Grimes] took the French back to the France of the early fifties, detail by detail. They loved it. He bore his illness with typical fortitude and humour."

Rathbone played Holmes in 14 movies during the 1940s as well as on radio for several years. Nevertheless, when Brett was offered the role in a series produced by Granada for the BBC, he was determined to bring his own interpretation to the character. 'I reread everything I could about the character,' Brett said. The results are nearly 10 years of marvelous adaptations of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's fictional detective. Not only has the series been a hit in England, but it also has won loyal fans in America with airings as part of PBS's Mystery! series and as Sherlock Holmes on cable's Arts & Entertainment network.

"Series creator [David Shore] says part of the inspiration for the House character was Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's fictional 19th-century detective Sherlock Holmes, who was highly observant and frequently more interested in solving cases than in social niceties. When Shore and [Hugh Laurie] first met, they discussed the similarities between House and Holmes....Though Laurie's comedy background might seem an odd fit for a dramatic character, Shore says it's good training for an offbeat doctor on a show with comedic touches, including House's Sherlock Holmesian diagnoses of clinic patients."

1. "Critic's Choice; It's Elementary for Dr Bell." Daily Record, December 18, 1999: 61.

Murder Rooms BBC 2. Filmed in Glasgow and Edinburgh last summer, this edgy - and somewhat spooky - thriller is inspired by the real life relationship between writer Arthur Conan Doyle and his tutor at Edinburgh University, pioneer forensic pathologist Dr Joseph Bell. The pair become embroiled in a hunt for a serial killer, a journey which reveals the stinking underbelly of Victorian society and inspires Doyle to create the most memorable detective of all time - the one and only Sherlock Holmes. This two-part drama stars a whole host of Scottish talent lead by the excellent Ian Richardson - best known at the scary PM Francis Urquhart in the BBC's House of Cards trilogy and recently seen in Gormenghast and The Magician's House - as Joseph Bell,with Robin Laing (Joey in both series of Jimmy McGovern's The Lakes) as the young Arthur Conan Doyle...."

4. "Did Conan Doyle play Dr Watson, on the case with a real Sherlock Holmes?". Daily Mail (London), January 3, 2000: 27.

"Shortly before the black flag above the jail let the crowds swarming over Calton Hill know justice had been done, the condemned man made a remarkable request. Turning to Dr Henry Littlejohn, Edinburgh's chief medical officer who had come to witness the hanging, wife murderer Eugene Chantrelle said coolly: 'Give my compliments to Joe Bell. He did a good job in bringing me to the scaffold.' In 1878 the remark was widely reported, yet it remains a mystery. Joseph Bell was an eminent Victorian surgeon at Edinburgh's Royal Infirmary, who would amuse medical students by deducing the occupation of his patients from small clues in their appearance. This habit would later inspire a certain student called Arthur Conan Doyle to create the world's most famous detective in Sherlock Holmes. But could there have been more to it than that? Chantrelle's remark suggests Bell solved the murder, not those who took credit at the trial for proving the womanising alcoholic had disposed of his wife with a large dose of opium. If Bell was a real-life Sherlock Holmes, solving crimes that baffled the police, who was the real Doctor Watson who assisted in his secret detective work? The creator of a new BBC drama claims the model for Watson was Doyle himself, and that he and Bell were actively involved in solving crimes. In uncovering the evidence, screen writer David Pirie had to wrestle with mysteries that would have taxed even Holmes. Bell and Doyle were very private men and would in any case have been sworn to secrecy if they did special detective work for the Crown Office...."

The writing and acting are better than strictly necessary, the lighting is downright seductive and where did they find those charming bats? Someone has taken a lot of trouble. Being an Anglo-American production, all this is largely for the benefit of the disappointed American tourist in Baker Street. Who will not be disappointed with this drama...."

17. Frame, Anna. "Murder Rooms:The Dark Beginning Of Sherlock Holmes." The Times (London), January 10, 2004: 37.

"According to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, who left notes to prove it, he was inspired to create Sherlock Holmes by his professor at Edinburgh Medical School, Sir Joseph Bell. A pioneering forensic detective, Bell possessed enviable analytical skills that led to the cracking of many crimes. This evocative dramatisation, well directed by Paul Seed (A Touch of Frost, Auf Wiedersehen, Pet), stars Ian Richardson as Bell and Robin Laing as an unexpectedly rangy Doyle. Their hunt for a serial killer on the loose is involving, but the historical emphasis on early forensic science is fascinating in its own right."

18. Gibb, Eddie. "Alimentary." The Sunday Herald, January 2, 2000: 12.

"...The parallels between Bell and Holmes have been milked for all they are worth in a new two-part drama called Murder Rooms: The Dark Beginnings of Sherlock Holmes, which the BBC has high hopes it will be able to turn into a series. Think of a Victorian Inspector Morse with a heavy dollop of Edinburgh Gothic and you will get an idea of how this show looks. Much of the drama was shot in the narrow wynds of Edinburgh's Old Town and has a grim, claustrophobic feel that producer Ian Madden likens to the contemporary horror movie, Seven...."

"Where have all the mysteries gone? Was the death of Morse -- and, later, of John Thaw, the actor who created the role -- a sign of closure? For the past year, viewers of television mysteries have had to satisfy their appetite by judicious cable surfing, snaring a rerun of Morse or Poirot on A&E, catching a 'Cracker' on BBCA, searching for a second 'Second Sight' anywhere, anytime, while always wondering, haven't we seen this before?...Well, at least 'Mystery!' is back for the summer, with a round of three new series, followed by one repeat performance (from Robson Green, who plays the moody detective in 'Touching Evil 3')....Next in line is 'Murder Rooms: The Dark Beginnings of Sherlock Holmes,' a four-part continuation of a series of several seasons ago. 'Murder Rooms' is, we are told, the real-life story behind Sherlock Holmes, in which a doctor named Doyle (short for Arthur Conan Doyle) links up with his professor, Dr. Joseph Bell, a scientist who is also a detective. Bell is played by Ian Richardson, who in common with many other classical British actors, has already played Holmes himself...."

Not that it is notably explicit; it just won't allow any credit to human powers of invention. The subject is the early life of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and in particular his relationship with Joseph Bell, the Edinburgh surgeon whose forays into minute observation and deduction were the avowed inspiration for Sherlock Holmes...."

21. Hegarty, Shane. "What a wonderful world." The Irish Times, September 8, 2001: 65.

Television review. "...Murder Rooms: The Dark Beginnings of Sherlock Holmes is a series based on the premise that Arthur Conan Doyle's very real inspiration, the surgeon Dr Joseph Bell, was also a cracking private investigator to whom Doyle would play the Watson. It takes a very modern view of the Holmes novels and their time and drops them into a right old potboiler. Taking as its cue the Sherlock Holmes mystery The Solitary Cyclist, it opened with a young lady in a forest being shadowed by a cloaked, featureless figure on a bike, who has a habit of disappearing into thin air. From such preposterous beginnings did an equally preposterous and wildly enjoyable plot emerge. There was a mysterious figure in a window, a fainting lady, a contested estate, an arranged marriage, shots in the dark, a ghost and a horribly scarred ex-lover bent on revenge...."

"Sherlock Holmes, regarded by many as the world's greatest fictional detective, might well have owed his literary origins to a note scribbled by a condemned murderer as he stood at the gallows. The doomed man identified Dr. Joseph Bell, Arthur Conan Doyle's medical instructor, as the sleuth who secretly helped the police secure his conviction. 'My compliments to Joseph Bell,' wrote Eugene Chanterelle. 'He did a good job in bringing me to the scaffold.' BBC researchers are convinced that the note alerted Conan Doyle to the double life of his eminent tutor and helped inspire some of the most memorable cases of the fictional Victorian detective. At the Cannes Film Festival last weekend, the BBC announced plans for a feature film and TV series starring Bell as the real Sherlock Holmes with Conan Doyle - rather than Dr. Watson - as his loyal assistant.

The mix of fact and fiction teams young Arthur Conan Doyle (Robin Laing)--the future creator of Sherlock Holmes--and his medical-school mentor Dr. Joseph Bell (Ian Richardson) in an investigation involving gore, mutilation, religious zealotry and an immoral philanthropist (Charles Dance). Though the murder plot has more than its share of complications, concentrate on Doyle's love for a fellow student (Dolly Wells) and his deepening relationship with the masterful Bell, an apparent Holmes prototype who believes in a rigorously rational approach to crime-solving."

But The Kingdom Of Bones was about Irish terrorism, which curiously doesn't seem to count in the new antiterrorist war, and was, besides, safely set in the Victorian period. Its only Arab reference - firmly pre-Islamic - was the discovery of a modern corpse within the linen wrappings of what should have been an Egyptian mummy. Instead of the great fictional detective in person, David Pirie's series gives us his creator, Arthur Conan Doyle, as a junior version of Dr Watson, and Dr Joseph Bell, Doyle's Edinburgh University medicine tutor and supposedly the inspiration for Holmes, as - well - Holmes by another name. Doyle was already writing his detective stories while struggling as a general practitioner in Southsea, near Portsmouth, where Murder Rooms is set...."

"A woman and her young child were visiting an Edinburgh surgery in the 1870s. She was mortified when, within seconds, the doctor had deduced that she came from Fife, had travelled a certain route to the capital, worked in a linoleum factory and had dropped off an older child on the way. Does this supersleuthing sound familiar? It should do. This real-life incident involved Dr Joseph Bell, who is widely seen as the role model for the greatest fictional detective of them all, Sherlock Holmes. Bell was a dazzling lecturer and trailblazing forensic pathologist at Edinburgh University in the latter part of the last century. In 1878, he began teaching a young medical student named Arthur Conan Doyle. Doyle saw Bell as his mentor and became his clerk....Not much more is known about Bell's actual relationship with Doyle - many of the relevant papers have been locked away in an interminable legal battle that has been raging since the Forties. However, these skeletal facts have now been fleshed out by writer David Pirie to create Murder Rooms, a new two-part drama for BBC2...."

"I blame William Shakespeare. Now there was a man who knew how to play fast and loose with the facts when it suited him. Take poor Richard III, for example. Does anybody now imagine him as anything other than a great malevolent bottled spider? And tonight a two-part BBC serial Murder Rooms...which purports to reveal the origins of Sherlock Holmes reinvents the early years of the great detective's creator, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, with a similar healthy disregard of the known facts. The premise is ingenious. In Edinburgh in 1878, young medical student, Conan Doyle, catches the eye of a brilliant surgeon-cum- detective called Joseph Bell (played by Ian Richardson) and becomes his assistant. After helping Bell, who is on the trail of a local serial killer, Conan Doyle is inspired to create the world's most famous detective. It's a producer's dream: a Sherlock Holmes mystery and high-class costume drama rolled into one, without the need to go through the palaver of reinventing the detective for the small screen. But there's one problem: Murder Rooms is mixture of fiction and supposition...."

His name was Dr. Joseph Bell, a legendary medical diagnostician who taught at the Medical School of the University of Edinburgh when Sir Arthur Conan Doyle enrolled there in 1878 as a medical student. In fact, Dr. Bell chose the young Conan Doyle to be his clerk -- a devoted-slave position that entailed emptying the bloody buckets after an autopsy, trotting after the master on the forensic cases he handled for the Edinburgh police department, and writing down the brilliant principles of criminal deduction that would later issue from the lips of the immortal Sherlock Holmes.

6. Clark, Pete. "Seasonal choices." Daily Mail (London), December 23, 2004: 2.

Brief note on "Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Silk Stocking." "Television viewers feel snugly at home in the fog-filled streets of Sherlock Holmes' London. The fog, widely reviled at the time, is a crucial part of the chilling atmosphere. Even if nothing is happening, it seems that it might at any moment, and if anything does happen, it will be bad. We meet Holmes, icily played by Rupert Everett, in the middle of an extended drugs bender."

7. Cubitt, Allan. "Holmes is where the heart is." Daily Mail (London), December 11, 2004: 6.

"Although I read and hugely enjoyed The Hound Of The Baskervilles, and many other Sherlock Holmes stories as a child, Holmes is actually a very adult character. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle created the great detective as a manic-depressive with a brooding darkness within him. And that complexity is one of the reasons Holmes has become a classic role on stage and screen. The late Jeremy Brett was Sherlock Holmes on TV for a decade, and described the role as tougher than Hamlet or Macbeth. Brett became so obsessed with playing Holmes that he was once discovered outside Doyle's former London house, begging to be released from the spirit of the master detective. In the 1940s, Basil Rathbone made the role his own in radio broadcasts and Hollywood films. For Christmas 2002, I adapted The Hound Of The Baskervilles for BBC television with Richard Roxburgh playing Holmes. This Christmas, my offering is Sherlock Holmes And The Case Of The Silk Stocking, with Rupert Everett in the lead role. He is a fascinating choice...."

8. James, Martin. "Sherlock Holmes And The Case Of The Silk Stocking." Sunday Times (London), December 26, 2004: 86.

"...Rupert Everett makes an excellent Holmes, with Ian Hart a sterling Doctor Watson and Neil Dudgeon an amusing Inspector Lestrade in this melodramatic story of the hunt for a serial killer. Though not based on a Conan Doyle story, Allan Cubitt's wholly original screenplay does remain true to the spirit of the canon...."

9. Jones, Alison. "Culture: Watching the Detective; Rupert Everett Tells Alison Jones He was Born to Play Sherlock Holmes." Birmingham Post, December 23, 2004: 10.

"'Actors always have certain characters they think they should play. Most people think it is Hamlet; I think it is Sherlock Holmes,' admits Rupert Everett, who gets his wish on Boxing Day when he plays the legendary 'tec in The Case of the Silk Stocking. He certainly looks the part. Long, lean and elegant with a kind of sardonic detachment which perfectly suits a man who is an observer rather than a participant of life...."

10. Keal, Graham. "Culture: Moving Tribute to Pete and Dud; Sherlock Holmes may be Stuck in a Pea Souper, but Don't Risk Missing." Birmingham Post, December 22, 2004: 11.

"...Another outing for Sherlock Holmes sounds rather conventional in comparison, but BBC1's Boxing Day offering, Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Silk Stocking...is actually rather wonderful. Rupert Everett is Holmes in this entirely new story by Allan Cubitt - it's not based on any of Conan Doyle's books. Everettgives his brooding, narcotics-abusing Holmes a marvellously arrogant touch, and he's brave enough not to go out of his way to make Holmes likeable...."

11. Kington, Miles. "All Roads Lead to Baker Street for Writers." The Independent (London), December 31, 2004: 27.

"On Boxing Day on BBC-TV they showed a Sherlock Holmes adventure called The Case of the Silk Stocking, starring Rupert Everett as the great detective. If you are puzzled not to recognise the name of this Holmes story, puzzle no longer. It was written by Alan Cubitt, and although my wife and I thought Everett very good in the role, and enjoyed some of the goings on, the story was shaping up quite preposterously by the time some visitors rang our door bell, and we missed the final five minutes and never found out what happened. What I was not shocked by was the fact that anyone should attempt to concoct a new story based on 221b Baker Street, even if it did involve inventing a completely new fiancee for Dr Watson. Because although it may seem to be sacrilege to imagine you can do the job as well as Conan Doyle, it must also be one of the most universal instincts among writers....Even Bert Coules has done it. He has adapted all the Holmes stories and the four novels for Radio 4, starring Clive Merrison as Holmes. That's 50 stories or more. And when Mr Coules had no more Holmes yarns to adapt, how did he use the skill and knowledge he had gained from vicariously living in Baker Street for so long? Why, he overcame his respect for Conan Doyle and concocted a clutch of brand- new Holmes stories of his own. I heard some of them on Radio 4, and they weren't bad, even if they were slightly far-fetched and over- wrought...."

12. McKie, Robin. "OTV: Boxing Day: Pick of the day: Capital Holmes: Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Silk Stocking, BBC1." The Observer, December 19, 2004: 99.

"The omens for this year's Sherlock Holmes festive special are scarcely encouraging. The prospect of using an 'original' Holmes mystery by TV playwright Allan Cubbitt, rather than picking a Conan Doyle original, is a worry for any aficionado. Nor does Rupert Everett...seem a great choice to play the great detective: a bit too foppish and slight, surely. Holmes should be all brooding menace and frowns. Such prejudices are misplaced, however, for The Case of the Silk Stocking turns out to be a real treat. Everett is especially convincing, turning in a fine, dark performance..."

13. Pierce, Andrew. "Rupert Everett as Sherlock Holmes." The Times (London), August 24, 2004: 7.

"Rupert Everett is filming Sherlock Holmes, minus his trademark deerstalker and pipe. 'The character is not described in the book in this way. It was one actor, Basil Rathbone I think his name was, who invented the hat and the pipe, which have wrongly been associated with the character ever since.'"

15. Rampton, James. "Arts: Not our Ideal Holmes." The Independent (London), December 16, 2004: 10.

"Sherlock Holmes is a national treasure, a literary character who has long enjoyed 'untouchable' status. He arouses especially strong passions among the purists who feel deeply possessive about 'their' man. Mess with him at your peril. So the makers of Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Silk Stocking, BBC1's radical new take on their hero, may be diving for cover after the film goes out on Boxing Day. Ian Hart, who plays the sleuth's companion and chronicler, Dr John Watson, in this new Holmes story written by Allan Cubitt, is certainly bracing himself for some flak from Arthur Conan Doyle devotees...."

16. Ramsey, Terry. "Pick of the Day." The Evening Standard (London), December 24, 2004: 42.

Review of Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Silk Stocking. "Was there ever such a brooding, handsome and strangely sexy Sherlock Holmes as this new version? The great Victorian detective is usually portrayed as an academic and austere individual. But in the hands of British Hollywood star Rupert Everett (right) he maintains these qualities while gaining a hint of another fictional hero, the dark and romantic Heathcliffe. Albeit a version of Heathcliffe who wears a dapper hat and polished shoes...."

"We should be grateful, in a landscape crowded out with the likes of Big Brother and TV's Naughtiest Blunders 14, that any literary classic gets dramatised for the small screen these days. Even so, I was slightly alarmed to discover the BBC's intentions with regard to its latest remake of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's immortal Sherlock Holmes. The attempt to return Baker Street's cadaverous, cocaine- injecting sleuth to the forefront of the public consciousness is to be called The Return of Sherlock Holmes, and the choice of Rupert Everett as the leading man is, according to the pundits, sure to upset the diehard fan...."

Includes a passing reference to Holmes. "...A quick sampling of what broadcasters exhibit as 'educational' or 'informative' (E/I) children's television in 2007 can truly be an eye-opening experience. Few would question the merit of offerings such as Mister Roger's Neighborhood or Liberty's Kids displaying E/I badges. Indeed, programs such as The Littles and Sherlock Holmes in the 22nd Century arguably could qualify for inclusion due to their respective roots in classic literature. However, when broadcasters (who, themselves, assign E/I status to their offerings) slip in programs such as Saved by the Bell, The Smurfs, and Archie's Weird Mysteries, it becomes patently obvious that rules for membership within the E/I club are lax, to say the least...."

Contains references to Doyle and Holmes. "...The prime directive became a troublesome and contradictory element in the stories the series presented. The idea, at its core, ran counter to the Wilsonian impulse that was so pronounced in U.S. foreign policy during the administrations of John F. Kennedy and Lyndon Johnson--an impulse whereby the United States sought to remake the world in its own image. On the other hand, as Jon Wagner and Jan Lundeen have pointed out, in episode after episode the main characters implement the concept in radically different, even contradictory, ways. These inconsistencies were the product of two factors. First, television is a collective effort, and many individuals contributed to the original Star Trek series during its run of three years. Mistakes or logical inconsistencies were almost inevitable, and sometimes story ideas and concepts that had little to do with issues of world affairs or colonialism ran afoul of the prime directive. (The general problem is not limited to works produced in a collective manner. Arthur Conan Doyle's stories and novels about Sherlock Holmes provide many classic examples of internal inconsistency created by an individual author.)..."

"Detective fiction is the most popular genre of literature. Fictional detectives Sherlock Holmes, Hercule Poirot, Philip Marlowe and Inspector Maigret have not only stood the test of time, but have also been the inspiration for countless detectives who populate today's fiction on film and television. In tonight's episode, The Mysterious Affair Of Sherlock Holmes And The Visionary Doctor, [Nigel] Williams sets out to investigate why, over 100 years since his first appearance, Sherlock Holmes remains so popular."

2. "Super sleuths." The Evening Post (Wellington), October 22, 2001: 15.

"Detective fiction is the most popular genre of literature. The Great Detectives explores the world's most famous sleuths and their creators. Fictional detectives Sherlock Holmes, Hercule Poirot, Philip Marlowe and Inspector Maigret have been the inspiration for a myriad of detectives who populate today's fiction. Author Nigel Williams believes detective fiction has gripped readers throughout the world for more than 100 years. 'From the Victorian world of Sherlock Holmes, through to the hard- boiled mean streets of Philip Marlowe, to the best-selling contemporary crime stories, the genre - and the detectives - have endured. In The Great Detectives we look at the founding fathers, the inspiration for generations of detectives and detective writers,' he says. This episode looks at Philip Marlowe....

"What a huge gap exists between the traditional detective story and the kind of crime thriller that has, to a large extent, displaced it on television. Last night, we were invited to celebrate the immortal detective, Sherlock Holmes, and his creator, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, before we were plunged into the bloodstained horrors of Touching Evil, a typical product of our own age. It only added to the confusion - as well as emphasised a loss of intelligence in our attitude to crime and criminals - that nearly all the regular characters in Touching Evil had the noble title of detective, yet behaved in a fashion that would probably have been repugnant to the likes of Holmes...."

A recent missive from the police force in Worth, Illinois, asked for the detective's help with an unsolved murder. But why are we so in thrall to such strange figures as Poirot and Holmes with their ridiculous moustaches, deer-stalkers and tics? Why do we have bookshops such as Murder One, entirely devoted to the single genre of detective fiction? In The Great Detectives, a new four-part series for BBC2, the author Nigel Williams...whips out his magnifying-glass and attempts to get to the bottom of 'The Mystery of The Popular Sleuth' by investigating, in turn, Sherlock Holmes, Hercule Poirot, Philip Marlowe and Jules Maigret...."

2. "Sherlock on the prowl again." New Straits Times (Malaysia), February 18, 2001: 18.

"The Hound Of The Baskervilles, which premiered on Hallmark was the first story to resurrect Sherlock Holmes. The story is an inspired interpretation of the 1902 Doyle masterpiece that re-imagines the inscrutable Holmes and his latest case in a style faithful to the original. In the fifth re-telling of The Hound Of The Baskervilles there's plenty of vintage Doyle intrigue, amusing wordplay, plot twists, and nail-biting suspense to satisfy both the hardcore Holmes fan and newcomers alike....Matt Frewer, a classically trained actor, turns in a surprisingly accomplished performance as the Baker Street detective, delivering lines with the modest irony that Holmes fans love. Frewer is supported by Kenneth Welsh (as the amenable Dr Watson) and Jason London, last seen in Hallmark's Jason And The Argonauts, as Sir Henry, the latest heir apparent to the Baskerville estate - and whose life is on the line...."

With his coat matted and eyes glowing with the magic of red contacts, he does a pretty convincing job. Until one of the lenses pops out, and crew members have to get down on all fours to search for it while their canine star naps in his trailer. Ah, the glamour of film-making. The first instalment in CTV's new take on the classic Sherlock Holmes mysteries, The Hound of the Baskervilles, airs Saturday at 9 p.m., one of a slew of spooky specials on tap to coincide with Halloween.

9. Jury, Louise. "Holmes Wears Mantle of Action Hero in Hi-Tech BBC Thriller." The Independent (London), April 2, 2002: 8.

"Sherlock Holmes and his sidekick Dr Watson are to be transformed from the intrepid sleuths of modern imagination into muscular men of action in a remake of one of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's classic stories. The Hound of the Baskervilles is to be filmed for a one-off BBC drama this spring, with its leading characters played by the youngest actors since the detective duo were first brought to the screen more than 60 years ago. For those weaned on the likes of Basil Rathbone or Nigel Bruce, the latest castings may appear yet another step in the march of youthful vigour over the wisdom of age. However, the production, by the independent company Tiger Aspect, will take the much-adapted story closer to the original, with Holmes and Watson portrayed as young and athletic men in their mid-30s in contrast to the mature and paternalistic figures of most screen versions. Richard Roxburgh, 40, who played the Duke in the film Moulin Rouge, will star as Holmes while Ian Hart, 38, who portrayed Quill in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, will be Dr Watson...."

1. Jackson, James. "Multichannel Choice." The Times (London), Dec 24, 2005: 66.

"An evening dedicated to the sleuth begins with The Man Who Loved Sherlock Holmes, a curious, far-from-elementary investigation into the demise of Richard Lancelyn Green, a leading Holmes expert. Having been embroiled in wrangles over the Conan Doyle archive, his death under strange circumstances in March 2004 revived talk of a 'Sir Arthur Conan Doyle curse', and in exploring his fate the programme reveals the obsessive world of Holmes aficionados. Also tonight, last Christmas's BBC One special, with Rupert Everett making a youthful Holmes."

2. McNeil, Robert. "TV Review: A mystery Holmes would have loved." The Scotsman, Dec 27, 2005: 26.

"In March 2004, Richard Lancelyn Green died in mysterious circumstances. The wealthy Sherlock Holmes expert had been garrotted with a bootlace tightened by a wooden spoon. It was a great story for the press but, obviously, a tragedy for his family and friends. The Holmes angle trivialised the awful fact of his death, but it had also been the obsession of his life. The Man Who Loved Sherlock Holmes, narrated by Stephen Fry, traced Green's life while worrying away at his death. The coroner recorded an open verdict, though suicide was thought likely. Or was it murder? It's trite to suggest Holmes would have loved this mystery but, as my old gran never said, there's truth in trite...."

3. Ramsey, Terry. "Pick of the Day." Evening Standard (London), Dec 23, 2005: 38.

"The Man Who Loved Sherlock Holmes 9pm, BBC4 The world's biggest Sherlock Holmes fan, Richard Lancelyn Green, was found dead in his flat in March 2004, garotted by a bootlace tightened by a wooden spoon. Did the 50-year-old millionaire bachelor commit suicide or was he murdered? This Stephen Fry-narrated documentary digs deep into the origin of a borderline barking obsession with the fictional detective before outlining some very strange conspiracy theories."

4. Wright, Jonathan. "The Guide: Television and Radio: Television: Boxing Day: Watch this: The Man Who Loved Sherlock Holmes 9pm, BBC4." The Guardian (London), Dec 24, 2005: 71.

"In March 2004, Richard Lancelyn Green was found dead, garrotted by a bootlace tightened with a wooden spoon. Millionaire Green was the world's foremost Sherlock Holmes expert, a man whose collection of Conan Doyle memorabilia was valued at pounds 2m when it was bequeathed to Portsmouth Library Service. But was Green's death a case of suicide or was it, as some have speculated, somehow related to an auction of Conan Doyle's so-called 'lost papers' at Christie's? A portrait of the kind of mystery that Holmes himself might have investigated, and a glimpse into the obsessive world of Sherlockians."

The article reports that author Arthur Conan Doyle is to be the subject of a new BBC 2 feature-length drama. To be screened during the week commencing 23rd July, "The Strange Case of Sherlock Holmes and Arthur Conan Doyle" will dramatise the life of the writer and his struggle with the detective he created. It features a strong cast of British and Irish acting talent including Douglas Henshall, Emily Blunt and Sinead Cusack.

2. "G2: Lawson on TV: The man who wouldn't die." The Guardian (London), July 25, 2005: 17.

"Just a few weeks after the publication of Julian Barnes's splendid novel about [Arthur Conan Doyle] as a real-life detective comes David Pirie's drama The Strange Case of Sherlock Holmes and Arthur Conan Doyle. This is the latest biographical variation from Pirie who explored in a previous film Doyle's relationship with the apparent model for [Holmes]: the Scottish doctor, Sir Joseph Bell."

3. "Tv Mail: Conan the Holmes Wrecker." Birmingham Evening Mail, July 27, 2005: 17.

"The Strange Case of Sherlock Holmes and Arthur Conan Doyle (BBC2, 9pm) dramatises the birth of the sleuth. Written by David Pirie (Murder Rooms, The Woman In White), this is an exploration of the dark family past which drove Arthur Conan Doyle to create the world- famous detective...and then murder him!..."

4. "TV: Pick of the Day: Holmes Death Drama Worth a Closer Look." The Mirror, July 27, 2005: 1.

"The Strange Case Of Sherlock Holmes And Arthur Conan Doyle, BBC2, 9pm. His death made headline news. But what prompted Arthur Conan Doyle to kill off Sherlock Holmes at the very height of the fictional detective's popularity? As David Pirie's gripping, feature-length drama suggests, Holmes sprang from the most troubled secret corners of Doyle's mind. With death threats and letters from outraged readers pouring in, his publisher despairs of Doyle's (played by Douglas Henshall) decision to kill his golden goose...."

5. Amos, Ilona. "Television: Looking for Clues." Scotland on Sunday, July 24, 2005: 39.

"It's said that you must suffer for your art, but you must surely have to be passionate about your work to grow a moustache in order to perform your duties. It seems that a dislike for glue and heavy make-up meant that this is exactly what our Dougie Henshall did for his latest role, as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, creator of the legendary sleuth Sherlock Holmes. We know that Doyle, a trained doctor, was fascinated by the macabre, but most of us probably picture him as a traditional Victorian gentleman, getting on in years and enjoying the success of his penmanship. But in The Strange Case of Sherlock Holmes and Arthur Conan Doyle, which is largely based on fact, we find the writer as an energetic 33-year-old struggling to deal with a dark secret that threatens to destroy him...."

6. Billen, Stephanie. "Pick of the day a tale of mystery: The Strange Case of Sherlock Holmes." The Observer, no. (2005): 81.

"This handsome drama by David Pirie ( Murder Rooms, The Woman in White ) ultimately fails to live up to its considerable promise. The opening scene, a rich Fanny and Alexander -style family Christmas, introduces us to the young Conan Doyle, basking in his popularity as the creator of Sherlock Holmes. His world is about to fall apart, however, with the death of his father in an asylum and the shock diagnosis of consumption in his wife. Convinced that he is being followed and haunted by images of severed ears (a motif from one of his stories), Doyle becomes increasingly paranoid and determines to kill off his fictional detective: 'If I don't finish him, he could finish me.'..."

7. Fowler, Alice. "Who killed Sherlock Holmes?" Daily Mail (London), July 9, 2005: 11.

"Walking down a London street, Arthur Conan Doyle's eye is caught by a stranger, his face in shadow. When the man turns, Conan Doyle sees he is grotesquely mutilated: one ear ripped clean away, his face wet with blood. An instant later, the man - if he existed at all - is gone. At the height of his literary success, the creator of Sherlock Holmes is left doubting his own sanity. For Conan Doyle, as depicted in a new BBC drama, such moments of Gothic horror were all too common. In The Strange Case Of Sherlock Holmes Arthur Conan Doyle, the bestselling author - played by Douglas Henshall - is a troubled man, at war with the fictional detective who made his name. Set in the 1890s, it describes a time in Conan Doyle's life when the pressures of success, coupled with deep personal trauma, threatened to destroy him...."

8. Grant, Graham. "Why was Sherlock Holmes killed off in his prime? The true answer is less than elementary." Daily Mail (London), January 8, 2005: 38-39.

"...Browsing through the deluge of angry letters from loyal readers in the pages of national newspapers that appeared after Holmes's 'death', Conan Doyle was also grieving not just for Holmes, but also for his father, Charles Altamont Doyle....Now the story of Conan Doyle's 'lost' father is to be explored in a new BBC drama, which begins shooting soon. The Strange Case of Sherlock Holmes and Arthur Conan Doyle, starring Dundonian Brian Cox as the author's mentor, the surgeon Joseph Bell, and Douglas Henshall as Holmes, aims to explain why Conan Doyle killed off his celebrated detective...."

9. Hendry, Steve. "Television : Pick of the Week: Conan Doyle Role is Elementary for Doug." Sunday Mail, July 24, 2005: 15.

"Sir Arthur Conan Doyle gave life to the world's most famous private detective, Sherlock Holmes And it was the hand of the Scots author which consigned the Baker Street sleuth to death at the height of his popularity in 1893. The decision to kill-off Holmes shocked the world and spawned headlines and hate mail. And public pressure famously forced Conan Doyle to bring Holmes back to life. Just why the writer would even contemplate committing such a murderous act is at the heart of new drama The Strange Case Of Sherlock Holmes And Arthur Conan Doyle. It was the intriguing tale behind the real-life mystery which convinced Douglas Henshall to play Conan Doyle...."

"Imagine the fuss if TV executives decided to axe Coronation Street. Or if JK Rowling killed off Harry Potter. That's the modern-day equivalent of what happened in 1893 when Arthur Conan Doyle shocked his fans. He sent his infamous creation of Sherlock Holmes to his death at the Reichenbach Falls, prompting public outrage, scandalised headlines in the press and even hate mail. The backlash was so great that he was later forced to resurrect his hero. Now a new feature-length drama, The Strange Case Of Sherlock Holmes And Arthur Conan Doyle (BBC2, Wednesday), shows what was in Doyle's mind when he made the decision...."

The Strange Case Of Sherlock Holmes And Arthur Conan Doyle (BBC2). "To make a story from the life of a real historical character, it is usually best to ignore the obvious and attribute his actions and behaviour to the most complicated explanation.

"A new television drama about Sherlock Holmes starring some of Scotland's top acting talent will suggest the fictional detective was based on author Arthur Conan Doyle's alcoholic father. The similarities between Holmes and Charles Doyle were never acknowledged by the author, who enjoyed fame and fortune while his father was secretly shut away in a mental institution. The drama's producer, Richard Downes, believes Charles Doyle's death in 1893 may have caused Conan Doyle to suffer a nervous breakdown and kill off his father's literary alter ego - only to resurrect him eight years later after sorting out his own personal demons...."

"Sherlock Holmes was the hero of dozens of classic detective novels, baffling the hapless Dr Watson with his powers of deduction. But the image of the cold, calculating Victorian gentleman always sat slightly awkwardly with his mood swings and his liking for cocaine. Now BBC producer Richard Downes believes he may have solved the mystery, controversially attributing Holmes's darker side to author Arthur Conan Doyle's alcoholic father...."

For starters, there simply cannot be too many dramas with Tim McInnerny in them, though Henshall is equally good. The thoroughbred cast also includes Sinad Cusack, Brian Cox and Allan Corduner. And it's intriguing to learn about Conan Doyle's life, which was at least as tangled as any of his plots. Viva Holmes!"

Review of "The Strange Case Of Sherlock Holmes And Arthur Conan Doyle," BBC2. "Television is in its summer doldrums at the moment (as I am sure you will have noticed), which means we have to be grateful for any new, adventurous, individual drama that comes our way. But exactly how much gratitude we should feel for this confused - and confusing - work is questionable. That's not to say its version of the life of Victorian writer Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and his relationship with his most famous character, Sherlock Holmes, doesn't have its memorable moments - just that it also has some very frustrating ones...."

Review of The Strange Case Of Sherlock Holmes And Arthur Conan Doyle (BBC). "'If the authors are to be believed,' says the screenwriter David Pirie, 'then the three great gothic archetypes -Sherlock Holmes, Frankenstein and Dracula -were just pieces of silliness, mere nothings.' Sir Arthur Conan Doyle always claimed that the Sherlock Holmes mysteries did not amount to more than a party trick...It is the circumstances of Holmes's birth and death that lie at the heart of Wednesday's drama. The ingenious screenplay joins the author as a young man of 33, just two years after he achieved success with his stories, and already determined to kill off his most famous creation. 'It was a remarkable act of literary savagery,' says Pirie, 'and I believe it proves that there were deeper roots to the character than Doyle claimed.'...The execution, however, is disappointing, largely because of the irritating insistence of the director, Cilla Ware, on shooting Henshall through shrubbery, random vases of flowers and blazing sunbursts, all of which lends the production a sweetly dreamy quality somewhat at odds with the nightmarish reality. The 90- minute film significantly flags halfway through, but those viewers who sit tight will be rewarded with a pleasingly Holmesian twist."

"The star of 'Wishbone' is Wishbone, who is portrayed by a Jack Russell terrier named Soccer and three supporting canine cohorts, vegetable-dyed to match.; The idea is to take a literary classic, boil it down to a half-hour story, and give the dog the elaborate costumes and settings to act out the starring role in his fantasies. Meanwhile, a thematically similar contemporary plot line for Wishbone's family and friends, played by human actors, helps young viewers relate to the classic, [Rick Duffield] said...."(excerpt). Wishbone is known to have played Holmes.
