  • The Rivals of Sherlock Holmes, Sunday, 20.00, Talking Pictures TV

    Time now for our regular feature We Forgot To Bill This Last Week, as last week we forgot to bill another interesting extraction from the Thames archive on this channel. Dating back to 1971, this series was rather interestingly based on a series of anthologies edited by former BBC Director General Hugh Carleton Greene, which brought together numerous vintage detective stories published, as the title suggests, at the same time Arthur Conan Doyle was writing his famous tales for the Strand magazine. Hence this is an anthology series with many of the fine character actors of the era taking a turn in the lead role, this week with Sir Robert Stephens portraying blind detective Max Carrados.
