Sherlock Holmes (2013, TV series) with English and Spanish subs2017 2 017
Once upon a time, there was a classic Russian TV series that starred Vasili Livanov as Sherlock Holmes and Vitali Solomon as John Watson. Much like the Granada series is legendary in the UK and US, this series is respected and venerated in other parts of the world. Fast-forward to 2013, twenty years from the original, and Channel One Russia decided to create a new, Victorian-period, Russian-language adaptation of Sherlock Holmes, this time starring Igor Petrenko as Holmes and Andrey Panin as Watson. Some of the stories have never been adapted before. It was the last adaptation with Andrei Panin, who died before he completed the audio track for his role.
The story begins when Dr. Watson, newly arrived and in search of lodging in London, runs into Holmes at the scene of a fatal accident, which Holmes immediately recognizes as murder. He ends up renting a room at Mrs Hudson’s, next door to Holmes. Mrs Hudson is a younger and more attractive woman than Watson makes her out to be. She has taken a liking to Watson, but has a problem with Holmes who has no clear occupation and disturbs other tenants with his violin playing and science experiments.
Dr. Watson shortly gets involved in his new friend's life full of exciting and dangerous adventures and becomes his loyal sidekick. He is also trying to build a private medical practice, and to make a name for himself as a writer. His heroic war poetry is turned down by the publisher who convinces him to focus on writing detective stories instead.
