    1. Sherlock Holmes A-Z. A complete listing of TV and film productions. Who could ask for more? What Alan Barnes put together is mind boggling. The chronology starts in 1887 and goes to 2010.Every plot, background, solution, and cast are detailed. I only wish there were more pictires of some of the lesser known titles. Larry Hagman was SH in 1976. Who knew?


    2. Sherlock Holmes on Screen-- a New Guide to the Film History of Our Favorite DetectiveI love Sherlock Holmes, but I'm not a Sherlock Holmes completist in the way that I am of, say, James Bond or Dracula. (And there's a geek continuum: I'm constantly reminded that there are many fans of those that are far to the left and right of me.) I do have a favorite Holmes-- Ian Richardson, largely because his BBC films were the ones I grew up on, whereas I largely missed the Jeremy Brett version that began [...]


    3. Originally published in 2002 by now defunct Reynolds & Hearn publishing this new updated edition includes coverage of Sherlock Holmes film and television programs released up to and including early 2011. The second Downey film SHERLOCK HOLMES: A GAME OF SHADOWS and the second series of the BBC series SHERLOCK are mentioned, but do not have specific individual listings. Alan Barnes (with occasional assists from writers Jonathan Rigby and Andy Lane) manages to provide succinct synopses, cast l [...]


    4. Although I do not agree with the author on some of the assessments of the myriad on-screen Holmesian interpretations, I did enjoy the minutiae that was included for some of my favorites. All of them are here: from Rathbone to Cushing and Brett to Cumberbatch and others who I did not know about and their entries inspired me to find and watch the movies/shows no matter how grandor terrible.The authors included movies from other countries outside the US and Britain, TV pilots that never made it bey [...]


    5. Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes has been featured in more films and television programs than any other fictional character. With each adaptation and performance, different aspects of the beloved character are explored, including Holmes's drug usage and personal relationships. With the these portrayals, it is difficult to keep track of them all. Super-fan Alan Barnes has collated information about his favorite sleuth into an encyclopedia. It features every single Sherlock performance to appe [...]


    6. An amazing reference source, full of details and rare photos. The only reason it has four stars rather than five is that the entries are listed alphabetically rather than chronologically, and there is no index or table of contents. None of these things would be a problem, except that the colloquial titles of adaptations might be very different from what they were published under, making it difficult to look up specific ones. An index, at the very least, listing which pages adaptations could be f [...]


    7. I'm writing about the 2002 edition, which I read through the help of my county library system. Although it claimed to be complete, it is not. Has some nice information (such as when episodes were originally broadcast and reviews a the time of release) and large pictures. My big problem with the book is that Barnes gives his personal opinion about the films he's seen. I didn't think that was appropriate for a reference book. For example -- he likes movie The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes. I tho [...]
