Packed with mystery and suspense, this tremendously popular Granada Television series remains true to the original Sir Arthur Conan Doyle stories. Jeremy Brett stars as Holmes; David Burke as Dr. Watson.
"The Greek Interpreter": Sherlock Holmes' brother, Mycroft, asks for his assistance when Mr. Melas, the interpreter, relays to him a mysterious story about a late night visitor who had demanded his services. Who was the foreign young man who adamantly refused when Mr. Melas asked him to sign an unknown document? Holmes, his brother, and Watson investigate.
"The Norwood Builder": Is the young solicitor John McFarlane responsible for the death of the builder? Why did the builder, until a day before a virtual stranger to McFarlane, want his will suddenly changed to leave everything to McFarlane? Is he innocent or guilty? It will be up to Sherlock Holmes to decide.
Two Arthur Conan Doyle mysteries are included in this collection of the 1984 British television series, THE ADVENTURES OF SHERLOCK HOLMES. In "The Greek Interpreter" concerns the title character consulting Holmes about a mysterious foreigner who shockingly will not sign a document. In "The Norwood Builder" a solicitor changes his will one day before he ends up a stiff. Jeremy Brett stars as the master sleuth.
