Sherlock Holmes, the creation of novelist Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, is one of the world's greatest most popular fictional detectives, as famous for his deerstalker and pipe as his legendary powers of observation and deduction. He is an aloof and private man driven by a fierce intellect that gives him astounding brilliance and unfathomable eccentricity in equal measure.

The late Jeremy Brett, the definitive Holmes, stars in these beautiful adaptations taken from the classic ITV1 series and as ever Dr Watson is on hand as his indispensable assistant.

Featuring guests appearances from stars such as John Thaw (Inspector Morse); Robert Hardy (Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets); Natasha Richardson (Maid in Manhattan); Joss Ackland (Lethal Weapon 2); Peter Vaughan (Remains of the Day) and many more.

This 16 disc boxset contains the entire Sherlock Holmes series.

He he :-D

I've gone an order a backup set from Base

Rathbone & Bruce were also quite excellent ,but the movies did not cover enough of Doyles work.

OP> absolutely incredible price, thanks, shame it was sold out before I could get one.

mailman> great find, thanks; ordered it as a backup set for my original one, since some gyet has borrowed the disc with The Speckled Band on it and I don't expect to see it again.

Shenghis> Rathbone better than Brett? Them's fightin' words!

I've notice this offer is back on with 10 further copies available. I was successful in ordering the previous last 1 of 6 but still haven't received an confirmation email, even though my order is 'awaiting dispatch' and my card has been charged. A significant amount of the links at selectcheaper.com are out of date and some are dead which may suggest this may be a scam? Has anyone received confirmation of their order?

8 copies available at Selectcheaper if anybody's interested....

Don't worry about the delayed email confirmation - it will come through eventually. Whether or not they dispatch the set is a different matter though.

Sigh. BlahDVD cancelled my order, apparently they 'only had a few at this special clearance price'. Anyone manage to receive these?

Excellent :thumbsup:

Also received email from Selectcheaper stating that: '[w]e are glad to report that your order has been dispatched on 29/04/2010 and is now on route...' Part of me will only believe it when I see it. Fingers crossed!

Had the same e-mail....:thumbsup:

Wonder if i'll get what i actually ordered......:whistling:

Just received the below email from Select Cheaper.

'This is an update regarding the Sherlock Holmes - Complete Collection [Dvd] [1984] item that you have bought from us.

Although we have a system to keep stock problems to a minimum...unfortunately when our dispatch team recently came to pick this item they found that in this case this item is no longer in stock...We fully realise how frustrating it can be to wait patiently for an item that then turns out to be unavailable...Our records show that we have emailed you to inform you that the item has been dispatched. We can confirm that this email was sent out to you by mistake...As we have unfortunately had to cancel the order a full refund has now been processed for any payment taken for this item to the card originally used to make payment. The funds will show in your bank account in the next few working days...'

What a strange company, which I will not be ordering from again. I thought the offer was too good to be true and this email reveals that this company can not be trusted. I wonder if I'll receive a refund?

If their T&C's are like most on-line companies they'll say that a contract only exists when the item is sent, as they told you it had been despatched, i'd take that as verification of a contract. Worth pursuing if you actually wanted the DVD's ;-)

Got the same e-mail....

Same here. Bit naughty that :x

Just got the same e-mail

Is it worth a fight? I did want the dvd's

Has anyone actually received this? I had an email saying the order had been dispatched but it never arrived. I contacted them and they sent another but that didn't turn up either! Still awaiting a reply regarding this.

Update: (for the record)... after much chasing I finally got a reply saying the second copy was returned undelivered and they'll be refunding. What nonsense. Don't know what their game is but I wont be ordering from them again. The only other item I ordered from them was also "cancelled".
