  The Rivals of Sherlock Holmes on DVD [read more]
  More than elementary
  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 con-temporaries, from R. Austin Freeman's forensics pioneer Dr Thorndyke to Jacques Futrelle's "Thinking Machine", Professor Van Dusen, to Arthur Morrison's corrupt but outwardly respectable Horace Dorrington.

This top-flight, BAFTA-winning se¬ries attracted an incredible array of talent, includ-ing John Neville, Robert Stephens, Peter Vaughan, Roy Dotrice, Donald Pleasence, Ronald Hines, Peter Barkworth, Donald Sinden, John Thaw, Derek Jacobi, Joss Ackland, Jean Marsh and Richard Beckinsale - to name but a few.

This complete set contains all 26 high-quality episodes.

The Rivals of Sherlock Holmes: The Complete Series (12) is available on DVD on 26 March 2018, RRP £39.99, courtesy of Network Distributing.
