The MPI website now lists the remaining Jeremy Brett Sherlock Holmes episodes as arriving in September (Casebook) and October (Memoirs). It'll be nice to finish this off, regardless of the decline in the quality of the eps (by Memoirs).

September is going to be a busy DVD month (Holmes, Hitchcock, Lean, etc.)!

Thanks for this update Douglas. I was wondering what had happened to the remaining Jeremy Brett Holmes episodes and now I can look forward to getting the last of the series on DVD as well.
Now if they'd just start releasing the rest of the Rumpole of the Bailey episodes in R1 too...

Douglas--

I looked all over www.mpihomevideo.com. I could not find the announcement.

Where should I be looking?

Bill,

On their home page there's a link near the bottom for "Future Releases". The Holmes notices are at the bottom of that page.

I've really been waiting for these. There are many I haven't seen, and they did a nice job with the Return set.
Have you ever heard of Vietnam, Larry?

Amazon.com has more details on the Casebook set, due to be released on September 28th. Included will be an old interview with Brett and Hardwicke, and commentary on one episode by director John Madden.
Imdb.com shows that he directed "The Disappearance of Lady Francis Carfax."
Sounds like this set will be identical to the Return set, with one commentary and one interview.
