Get to the bottom of the mystery of why Sherlock Holmes is one of the most depicted fictional characters in cinema and TV, and why his appeal is so enduring.

Join historical film detective Will Bird to uncover the earliest adaptations of these famous cases and discover the role Sir Arthur Conan Doyle himself played in some of these films. Plus learn how the many men (and at least one woman), from all over the world, who've played the great detective on the silent screen have helped to shape his character. A must for every Sherlock Holmes fan!
