Absolutely disgusting murdering of a great book! Did the creators of the movie even read this book??? Absolutely horrible - I do not recall any movie so disappointing!

A crisp 100 minute VDO abridgement of the Conan-Doyle novel. As Sherlock, Ian Richardson turns in an excellent performance. Donald Churchill as Dr Watson? Not so much. For some reason directors -- as was done here -- choose to make Dr Watson a doddering bumbler, when in fact Conan-Doyle portrays him as nothing but a highly skilled and logical-thinking technical surgeon. On the whole, still a good adaptation. The novel's numerous red herrings and mistaken identities could get a tad tedious on the screen, and many were removed. My only complaint, besides the Dr Watson character, is the addition of an over-the-top and unnecessary subplot involving Laura Lyon's husband -- a character giving nothing more than a mere passing reference in the novel. Holmes fans would do well to compare and contrast this DVD to the BBC/Acorn version with Jeremy Brett.
