Synopses
The Casebook of Sherlock Holmes (Disc 1 of 3) (1991)
The gorgeous and graceful Lady Frances Carfax has seemingly disappeared from the face of the earth. Sherlock Holmes (Jeremy Brett) suspects foul play, but he has only minimum evidence to go on. With his customary brusqueness and diligence, Holmes pinpoints Lady Frances' whereabouts. We can't give away anything here, though we'll observe that the story is seasoned with a dash of Edgar Allan Poe. Running a compact 50 minutes, "The Disappearance of Lady Frances Carfax" was an entry in the British Casebook of Sherlock Holmes teleseries. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide

The Casebook of Sherlock Holmes (Disc 2 of 3) (1991)
Sherlock Holmes fans are divided as to who was the best on-camera interpreter of "The Master": Basil Rathbone or Jeremy Brett. Partisans of Brett should get their fill, and more, from the Casebook of Sherlock Holmes TV series. Produced in Britain in the '80s and '90s, these irresistible 60-minute Conan Doyle dramatizations are just as popular in videocassette form as they were when first telecast. In "The Boscombe Valley Mystery," a farmer's son is accused of murdering his father. The circumstantial evidence is all against the boy, but Holmes and Watson (Edward Hardwicke) are seldom inclined to accept matters at face value. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide

The Casebook of Sherlock Holmes (Disc 3 of 3) (1991)
Sherlock Holmes (Jeremy Brett) spends several days at the races in the Conan Doyle mystery "Shoscombe Old Place." Holmes' client is an English lord who faces ruin at the hands of an old enemy. Murder and extortion are key ingredients in this 50-minute dramatization. Before everything is straightened out, Holmes has unearthed many an unpleasant deep, dark secret. This entry from the British Casebook of Sherlock Holmes TV series was released to American television and to U.S. video stores almost simultaneously. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide

Contains "The Disappearance of Lady Frances Carfax" and "The Problem of Thor Bridge".
