The Return of Sherlock Holmes
The Return of Sherlock Holmes

 

“The Empty House”
Did Sherlock Holmes survive his apparent demise at the hands of Professor Moriarty in “The Final Problem”? Clearly so, as his resurrection three years later in this story is a dramatic and happy event–though it causes his old friend Dr. Watson (Edward Hardwicke) to faint at the sight of him. Jeremy Brett is outstanding as the famed sleuth, whose return from what Sherlockians call the Great Hiatus is challenged by one of Moriarty’s most murderous lieutenants (Patrick Allen), already a killer on the run in London. The action is swift and exciting, and the colorful reentrance of Holmes into the life of Dr. Watson is a highly memorable event. With Rosalie Williams in a more extensive part than usual as the wonderful Mrs. Hudson, Holmes’s Baker Street landlady.
