The Return of Sherlock Holmes is a 1987 CBS television movie and pilot created and written by Bob Shayne involving the famous detective Sherlock Holmes finding himself in the modern world. Starred Michael Pennington as the detective and Margaret Colin as Dr. Watson’s granddaughter, Jane.
Jane, after following directions written by her grandfather years ago, finds out that she has thawed Holmes who had been cryogenically frozen by Dr. Watson for 88 years due to Bubonic plague.
Holmes soon finds himself in a world which has changed a lot in his absence, and lacking an alternative, he accompanies Jane to America, where they are soon drawn into a very difficult case.
They become a team—the essential Victorian gentleman and a post-feminist young woman.
CBS, you sly minxes.
