Conan Doyle’s master detective Sherlock Holmes has appeared on screen more times than any other fictional character. Sherlock Holmes on Screen surveys over a century’s worth of his exploits in film and television, from the silent era to the present day.

Actors Basil Rathbone, Jeremy Brett and Peter Cushing have all been praised for their portrayals of Holmes. Sherlock Holmes on Screen casts new light on their performances, and introduces many less familiar Sherlocks, too – including John Cleese, Roger Moore and Larry Hagman.

Illustrated with rare archive pictures throughout, Sherlock Holmes on Screen is now updated with entries on the BBC’s modern-day Sherlock, starring Benedict Cumberbatch, and director Guy Ritchie’s all-action Sherlock Holmes, starring Robert Downey Jr – plus Sherlockian turns from Rupert Everett and Jonathan Pryce. Expanded coverage of Holmes’ animated escapades opposite, among others, Batman, Scooby-Doo and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, plus new research into the Great Detective’s silent film career, makes this revised edition the most comprehensive Holmes filmography ever published.

Alan Barnes has co-authored acclaimed books on Quentin Tarantino, the James Bond films and Hammer Horror. His fiction writings include comic strips, audio dramas and the animated Doctor Who adventure, The Infinite Quest.

WITH A FOREWORD BY STEVEN MOFFAT, CO-CREATOR OF THE BBC SERIES SHERLOCK.

Review:

"Marvellous." --BBC.co.uk

"I love this book." --Steven Moffat

"If you're a fan of Holmes, you'll want to grab a copy, start reading and keeping score. I'm certain even the most rabid fan will find something in this book that comes as a surprise, making for a personal game is afoot moment as the hunt begins." --Geek Dad, Wired.com

"Sherlock Holmes On Screen feels like a necessary reference work for any film fan's library, whether or not they are a Holmesian. It's the best sort of movie book - the sort that sends you scrambling to watch more movies." --Badass Digest

"The sheer breadth of coverage is staggering... If the subject matter is of any interest to you, then solving the query of whether you should buy this book or not is 'elementary', my dear reader." --Cool Ass Cinema
