This week Lee, Daniel and the returning guest host Jack Graham are breaking the general TMBDOS! rule of at least covering one movie on an episode, and are continuing their look at Sherlock Holmes adaptations by talking about three of the Jeremy Brett tv episodes. This time out they talk about "The Norwood Builder" (1985), "The Musgrave Ritual"(1986), and "The Devil's Foot" (1988). Robert Forster; "WKRP in Cincinnati"; "Star Trek" jokes; sexual awakenings; trigonometry; M.R. James & Poe references; and Holmes tripping balls are just some of the things brought up, as well as listener comments and what the hosts have watched as of late.

Lee and Daniel are back once again with their friend Jack Graham to ponder more Sherlock Holmes adaptations on the big and small screen. First up it's the Hammer Horror adaptation of "The Hound of the Baskervilles" (1959), directed by Terence Fisher, and starring Peter Cushing, André Morell & Christopher Lee. Then it's two more episodes of the Jeremy Brett Holmes series, where we cover the apparent death and return of Holmes with "The Final Problem" (1985) & "The Empty House" (1986). Was Hammer suited to adapt Holmes? Why is Moriarty bullshit? Can Watson write a fight scene worth a shit? Dog's bollocks? All this and more is covered in the episode. The hosts also talk about what they've watched recently and listener comments are read.
