      I am reviewing The Devil’s Foot, a Sherlock HOlmes episode from the boxed set, The Return of Sherlock Holmes, which was produced in 1984 by Granada television. This episode finds Holmes in need of recooperation. He and Watson travel to a remote place with the intent on giving Holmes a full rest.

      Unsurprisingly, Holmes has to rely


      on his addiction to get him through the boredom of stagnation. Watson is far from happy, but it isn’t long before a case presents itself.

      A friendly church goer stops by to see them, and returns later with a horrific tale. A group of people have appeared to have gone mad, and seemed utterly terrified.

      They know nothing else besides ...


      • their terrors. Holmes puts a theory to the test, which ends up putting both his and Watson’s life in danger.

        This episode is up there with my list of favorites. I think it is almost impossible for someone not to love this episode.

        It sees our two main characters away from Baker Street, puts them in harm’s way, and gives

        us a startling conclusion. Brett and Hardwicke are at one of their bests in this outstanding episode.

        You cannot miss this one. It has everything in an hour that you could hope for, and it gives us a first in the series: Sherlock Holmes addresses Watson by his Christian name for the first time ever.

        This episode is bound to excite you.
