The Devil’s Foot

Unpublished photograph from an unused scene.

In the Granada episode, we only see Holmes tying a turnoquite from a back shot, his arm out. He covers his arm as Watson walks in and unsuccessfully hides the cocaine.

This is the episode where Holmes buries the Cocaine under sand at the beach. While this is not canonical (though Holmes does stop using), it was a deliberate choice on Bretts part. He learned that a younger audience was watching the series and felt the drug usage was inappropriate. Reportedly, Brett wrote to Jean Conan Doyle and asked permission to have the scene of Holmes breaking the habit on his own so younger viewers would not be influenced.


Jeremy Brett as Dracula

"I’ve heard of you before. You’re Holmes the Meddler. Holmes the Busybody! Holmes the Scotland Yard jack in office."

We were on location somewhere and he serenaded me at a restaurant table in the middle of a very crowded restaurant in the evening … and when he serenaded me, he really did serenade me. He wasn’t taking the mickey, it was absolutely serious as only Jeremy could be serious in a situation like that. I was sitting there, and suddenly his voice was floating out all over this restaurant, and he improvised this song all about me and my beautiful wife and my beautiful son. I was absolutely crimson with embarrassment. But it didn’t make me love him any the less.

“You know my methods. What do you yourself gather as to the individuality of the man who has worn this particular article?” “Well apart from the initials inside - H.B.- presumably Henry Baker? I can see nothing.”

Love the “Ah”.


Unused promotional photo. The photo was retaken after it was realized Brett was still wearing his earring.

When I came out of the asylum, the person who collected me was Edward Hardwicke. He took me to an Italian restaurant. I had a pasta and a glass of red wine. He then drove me back to my home where we sat and had a cup of tea. It was Edward Hardwicke. He is one of the loveliest people, and I suppose he is the best friend that any man has ever had….in life. Which is after all how Doyle describes Watson.
