The Return of Sherlock Holmes



Caricature of English actor Jeremy Brett as Sherlock Holmes from the Granada television series. The TV series of Sherlock Holmes adaptations produced by British television company ITV Granada between 1984 and 1994, with the first two series bearing the title "The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes" on screen and being followed by subsequent sub-series bearing the titles of the other short story collections by Arthur Conan Doyle. Brett's portrayal remains very popular and is accepted by some as the definitive on-screen version of Sherlock Holmes. The idea for this caricature came from a series of short stories, collected in "The Return of Sherlock Holmes", which were published between 1903–1904 in "The Strand" magazine. Conan Doyle, who had grown tires of writing his "Holmes" character decided that Holmes had to die. So in a story titled "The Adventure of the Final Problem," published in 1893, Holmes dies after falling off a cliff while battling his arch-nemesis, the evil Professor Moriarty. Public pressure from the many fans of the "Sherlock Holmes" stories persuaded Doyle to resurrect the famous detective. Media: Digital. Size: 15 x 20.7 inches @ 300 ppi. Date: 2014.
