Based on the best-selling works of celebrated Victorian and Edwardian writers, this highly popular anthology series features the world-famous consulting detective's fictional rivals all of whom operate in the fog-shrouded crime capital of London.

Set in the three decades before the Great War, the episodes present individual and perplexing cases featuring the exploits of detectives created by Conan-Doyle's contemporaries, from R. Austin Freeman's forensics pioneer Dr Thorndyke to Jacques Futrelle's "Thinking Machine", Professor Van Dusen, and Arthur Morrison's corrupt but outwardly respectable Horace Dorrington. 

This top-flight, BAFTA-winning series attracted an incredible array of talent, including John Neville, Robert Stephens, Peter Vaughan, Roy Dotrice, Donald Pleasence, Ronald Hines, Peter Barkworth, Donald Sinden, John Thaw, Derek Jacobi, Joss Ackland, Jean Marsh, James Bolam and Richard Beckinsale.

Classic Mystery Drama

This DVD collection is an anthology of British mystery dramas made by Thames Television in the early 1970's. It consists of 26 x 50 min. episodes, each being a separate short tale of crime, mystery or suspense, adapted from stories written by literary contemporaries of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Production values aren't quite what we've come to expect today, but isn't so much of the modern genre very much a question of style over substance? A very rewarding collection, well worth the money, time and minimal effort... to watch and enjoy, and spot the well-known British actors!
