Sherlock Holmes completists might be interested …

81YKoCkh62L._SL1500_I’ve recently watched a German DVD release of assorted Holmes materials – unsubtitled, but easy to follow. You’ll already have the BFI’s release of the Douglas Wilmer Sherlock Holmes on order; the German TV series uses the same scripts, so you can watched paired episodes and improve your language skills (one episode missing in English survives in German). Also included are a German language version of Terence Fisher’s Sherlock Holmes and the Deadly Necklace which looks a lot better than the bleary grey US release, and a 1966 TV movie about the Edalji case which has the same plot as the forthcoming UK TV miniseries Arthur and George.
