BSJ 2014 Christmas Annual

The BSJ 2014 Christmas Annual cover

The Only Actor Who Ever Got It Right:
Douglas Wilmer as Sherlock Holmes.

Edited by Elaine & Jonathan McCafferty.

This tribute to Douglas Wilmer celebrates his classic 1964-65 BBC TV series Sherlock Holmes, and includes Wilmer’s 1994 speech to the Sherlock Holmes Society of London. The 74-page book has more than a dozen excellent photos, and Roger Johnson, editor of the Sherlock Holmes Journal, described the book as “first-rate.”
