Huilu has added the 1940's(?) Brit 'Sherlock Holmes' TV series to their line up, with episodes 1 to 39.
Back when I only had terrestrial TV, I used to enjoy watching the nightly episode aired on my local PBS channel before going to sleep.
Here’s Hulu’s link:
Thats a VERY old series - why dont they put the Jeremy Brett version on?
These 39 episodes ran in 1954-1955. Starring Ronald Howard, son of the more famous Leslie Howard.
At first I didn't think much of this version, but it grew on me.
You beat me.
If you have a Netflix account, the Jeremy Brett Holmes series are available for streaming. Add a box to hook up to your TV (Noku, XBox, maybe Wii in the future), and it works pretty well.
I must say I really dont recall the series (and I am a Brit)
I dont have netflix, but the jeremy brett version is regularly rerun here, so ..no issues.
That's why. It was produced in Paris, with a British cast, but it was made for U.S. audiences. My understanding is that it was not shown in Britain until 2006.
