well-done extrapolation from Doyle's Sherlock Holmes original (spoilers)

Robert Hardy died only 5 days ago at age 91, but here he shows his great talent by brilliantly playing the oily title character.

It must be said at the outset that Charles Augustus Milverton was closely-based on a real (alleged) "master blackmailer", Charles Augustus Howell, a shady art dealer who now has his own Wikipedia page.

In case anyone thinks the denouement of this episode is a case of "wishful thinking", Howell's end in real life was strikingly similar to Milverton's even though his real killer still remains unknown.

The early scene in the Victorian gay bar is, of course, not suggested by Doyle's original and the drag singer is singing Debussy's early song (Beau Soir in an English translation) but it seems a logical scene to include in an updated episode about a blackmailer.

Fantasticccccccccc !

I am just watching it now on ITV+.... What a masterpiece ! Almost inside the book, living in the author's breath. A perfect example of Cinema becoming Art when the director is really in his element & he exhibits his craftsmanship. A "Must Have" in a collection. :) I will never forget Holmes flirting with the Maid .His laughter on the ladder.The amazing moments of still scenes director made look like we are just having a glimpse into the spirit of that era. Incredible!I will get this movie at once! It will be one of the tops I keep watching over & over again. If Arthur Conan Doyle was able to watch this I am sure he would be awed to see the accuracy of images exactly as he imagined them to be. A piece of Art can't be described it should be experienced so I recommend dedicated followers of Cinema watch this movie & make a treasure of it.
