Every once in a while, television brings something special into our lives. In 1984, that something special was The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes', the Granada Television series which introduced Jeremy Brett's sparkling new interpretation of Conan Doyle's Master Detective to our screens. To the present generation, Jeremy Brett is Sherlock Holmes; but it is all too easy, in praising Brett's superlative performance in the rle to overlook the contribution of othersthose people behind the scenes who were responsible for production, design, prop buying, costumes, and all the other things that go into making a major television series possible. To assist the stars of the series and the backroom boys and girls in their task, Producer Michael Cox, Associate Producer Stuart Doughty, and Researcher Nicky Cooney spent hours of their leisure' time preparing notes of minute points of information from the Sherlockian canon, thus ensuring that even the smallest detail of their production had its basis in fact (or, more correctly, fiction!). The result of their efforts was The Baker Street File', a stapled handbook, of which a hundred or so copies were issued to the team working on the series. The Baker Street File' is one of those documents that is well known, yet not known at all: occasional copies have drifted into the hands of collectors, but in the main it has never been available to Sherlockians at large. This new edition of The Baker Street File', to which Michael Cox has contributed a Foreword and detailed section notes, will nicely fill that gap on the second shelf', and will serve as a useful reference for viewers, researchers, writers, and particularly Sherlockians, everywhere.
