Lee and Daniel are once again joined by their friend Jack Graham to talk about some more Sherlock Holmes adaptations. First off they get a bit deeper into the character's drug use with "The Seven-Per-Cent Solution" (1976). Then they take a break from the Rathbone series, covered in previous episodes, and take a look at the very first episode of the Jeremy Brett series, "A Scandal in Bohemia" (1984). Racist barons; douchebag kings; train chases; sword fights on top of said trains; terrible BBC Sherlock; and Moriarty slipping the D to Holmes' mom are just a few of the things brought up this time around, as well as listener comments and what Lee has watched recently.

Lee and Daniel are joined this week by their friend Jack Graham, making his return to the podcast to help them tackle more Sherlock Holmes adaptations. First up it's another Basil Rathbone film, with 1943's "The Spider Woman". Then they look at one of, if not the first, Holmes film to really take a much different look at the character, with Billy Wilder's "The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes" (1970). Holmes' sexuality; racism and propaganda in the Rathbone films; bald Christopher Lee; and the Loch Ness Monster are just a few of the things talked about in this episode. Listener comments are also covered.

Lee and Daniel start an extended series looking into film adaptations of Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes stories. First up, they check out two examples from the 14-film series, starring Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce, that one could argue really captured the imagination of the general movie-going public and cemented Holmes and his stories as a solid well to keep going back to for film adaptation ever since. The two films are "The Hound of the Baskervilles" (1939) & "The Pearl of Death" (1944). There's talk of Holmes being a dickhead; the smashing of fine china; Rondo Hatton; the new Dark Crystal series on Netflix; and listener comments are responded to.
