      I am reviewing The Case of the Vanished Detective, a Sherlock Holmes episode from the boxed set, Sherlock Holmes: The Complete Series 39 Thrilling Episodes. This series was produced by Sheldon Reynolds and filmed in France in the fifties. Ronald Howard, the son of actor Leslie Howard, stars as Sherlock Holmes, and Marion Crawford stars as Watson.

      This episode is one of the better episodes of the Ronald Howard series. This episode finds Holmes vanished! Watson returns to Baker Street one day to find his

      friend has disappeared.

      Ever several days, Watson becomes concerned and enlists Lestrade’s help. Having found a scrap of paper about a local bookshop on Holmes’ desk, the two set out towards the little shop.

      Watson immediately suspects the bookseller of knowing the location of his dear friend. The bookseller appears to be watching after a certain person in the room, who keeps lingering by a shelf of books.

      When Watson wants to buy a certain book, the bookseller refuses, all the while keeping his eye on ...

      • the other person. In truth, the person in question has been using the book Watson wants as a messaging service, leaving messages for a certain man.

        Watson gets rather heated with the bookseller, and then Lestrade finds Holmes’ clothes in the shop, and they are bloody. In the chaos, the person the bookseller had been watching flees.

        Seconds later a man steels a message from the book, and as Watson and Lestrade restrain the bookseller, the man takes off his disguise and shouts angrily at them

        to let him go. It is no other than Sherlock Holmes undercover, and Watson and Lestrade have ruined his mission.

        In the end, Holmes is able to solve the mystery he’d been out to solve, with no harm done. This is one of the better episodes.

        Watson, Holmes, and Lestrade working together is hilarious, and well worth watching. The three actors are the support of the series, as without them, the show would have been superfluous.

        This episode is well worth the time, and I recommend it highly.
