      I am reviewing The Case of Lady Beryl, 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 a continuation of the very first episode, The Cunningham Heritage. This episode picks up where the previous episode


      ended: Watson storming out of Baker Street to confront Lestrade for taking all the credit in the Cunningham Heritage case, even though it was Holmes who solved everything.

      While engaging in a verbal match with Lestrade, the two receive word that a murder has been committed at the infamous Lord Beryl’s home. While the two go to investigate, they inform Holmes about the murder, only to find that he refuses to leave, as he is deeply involved with ...


      • one of his chemical experiments.

        At the scene, Lady Beryl tells police that she shot and killed her husband, thus leaving no doubt in Lestrade’s mind. Case closed? No.

        Upon hearing the details of the case, Holmes tells Lestrade that Lady Beryl is innocent. With that said, Holmes investigates the crime, and discovers the truth.

        This episode is very enjoyable. The first two episodes were very good in fact.

        And for once, THE

        SUPPORTING CAST IS NOT DEPLORABLE! The woman who plays Lady Beryl is actually very good and enjoyable to watch. There is everything in this episode: drama, mystery, suspense, and humor.

        The scenes with Holmes and his experiments are very entertaining and humorous. It is also very humorous and touching to watch Watson defending Holmes to Lestrade in such a fashion, having only known him a few days.

        This episode is well worth the small time it takes to watch it.
