Before They Were Stars: Jude Law on “The Case-Book of Sherlock Holmes”

Believe it or not, playing Dr. Watson in two blockbuster movies is not Jude Law’s first experience with Sherlock Holmes. From 1984 until 1994, a Sherlock Holmes series was broadcast on ITV in the UK with Jeremy Brett playing the iconic title character. Each incarnation of this series was based on a collection of Holmes stories written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. In 1991, they did an adaptation of The Case-Book of Sherlock Holmes and an unknown 18-year old Jude Law was cast in the “Shoscombe Old Place” episode. His character is a stable boy who goes to work for an eccentric aristocrat and is soon forced to do some cross-dressing for his new master!
