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.
