TV Fact #275 – July 26th, 2015:

The show “The Rivals of Sherlock Holmes” (1971-973) took its inspiration, and title, from a series of published anthologies by British journalist and television executive Hugh Greene. He is the elder brother of author Graham Greene and the former director-general of the BBC as well. Hugh Greene is credited on the programme as a creative consultant and, just to be clear, the programme presented adaptations of short mystery, suspense or crime stories featuring, as the title suggests, detectives who were literary contemporaries of Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes. I mean Holmes always spoke about the little details being the most important…how would you separate this detective show from ones about the greatest literary detective ever?
