Did You Know?


Some of the video boxes for the US video release incorrectly claim that the Ian Fleming playing Dr. Watson was the Ian Fleming who was the creator/writer of the James Bond novels. Although both men have the same name - a not particularly uncommon one in England - the actor playing Dr. Watson was not the same man as the James Bond author, and was in fact not even related to him. This Ian Fleming had a 40-year career as an actor and played in over 100 British films. See more »


Lestrade: On the way I'll tell you all I know.
Holmes: We're not going very far then, are we?
