For those of you who remember the 1960s, you may recall a television series produced by the BBC that starred Douglas Wilmer, BSI ("The Lyceum Theatre") and then Peter Cushing, each with Nigel Stock as their Watson.
Unfortunately, only five episodes remain for us, as the BBC eliminated the originals some years ago. However, there seems to be a silver lining. A few years ago, these were made available on video. Now it seems that they're available on DVD. You can pre-order your set from Amazon right now and save 25%.
The episodes you'll find on this 3-DVD set include:
The Hound of the Baskervilles
The Sign of Four
A Study in Scarlet
The Blue Carbuncle
The Boscombe Valley Mystery
The DVD is due to be released on December 15. Hopefully they'll expedite shipping in time for Christmas. Other Sherlock Holmes DVDs can be found there as well.

What are those four-letter abbreviations in the headlines?
