Holmes, his friend Watson (or his brother Mycroft) work to solve the mysteries of The Three Gables, The Dying Detective, The Golden Pince-Nez, The Red Circle, The Mazarin Stone, and The Cardboard Box.Written by
Jeremy Brett played the role for many glorious years, and for my money he's still far and away the best in the role, he's seemed to meet all the criteria, and add an enormous amount of charisma.
The production values remain exquisite, it's a fabulous looking series, with a degree of detail.
This last run for Brett is arguably very good overall, generally I favour them to those of The Casebook of Sherlock Holmes. I cannot help but feel a degree of sadness as I watch Brett, his health has visibly declined, but he still has a huge command in the role.
There is a varying degree of quality in this series, The Cardboard Box, Dying Detective and Red Circle are all definite classics, I personally find The Mazarin Stone to be the weakest episode overall. However all are an enjoyable watch.
Brett would make a few more appearances on television after this, but sadly this is where the ultimate Sherlock Holmes signed off. 8/10
