Over 12(!) Hours Of ШЕРЛОК ХОЛМС In One Video (And More!)

ШЕРЛОК ХОЛМС is Sherlock Holmes in Russian.

And I didn’t have any idea such a series was ever made until it popped up as a YouTube Recommendation.


The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson (Russian: Приключения Шерлока Холмса и доктора Ватсона) is a series of Soviet television films portraying Arthur Conan Doyle’s fictional English detective, starting in 1979. They were directed by Igor Maslennikov. In 2006, Vasily Livanov became an Honorary MBE (Member of the Order of the British Empire) for his portrayal of Sherlock Holmes.

Some madman has smushed all of the episodes into one video that runs over twelve hours!

See it after the break.

There are, unfortunately, no subtitles.


Since that has no subtitles, I dug further. I found something with subtitles in English.

With the same stars, the series picks up with a case for Holmes who has retired to bee-keeping. And the world has moved on. There are now automobiles, motorcycles, airplanes, telephones, and electric lights. As the title says, the twentieth century has begun.

Each of these is a standalone story. And they’re so delightful that they should be seen! They’re done with such panache, such style, and contain so many little details, they’re worth the time.

THE TWENTIETH CENTURY BEGINS Part 1 / Двадцатый век начинается 1 с

THE TWENTIETH CENTURY BEGINS Part 2 / Двадцатый век начинается 2 с

Watching those two episodes was a great way to start the day.

And the LFV Channel has separate episodes of ШЕРЛОК ХОЛМС with English subtitles. But it doesn’t look like it’s the entire series.
