Doctor Who Vs. Sherlock Holmes, Series 2 (1968)

Conan Doyle aficinado Peter
 Cushing reprised his cinematic
 portrayal of the Great Detective
 for the BBC's second series of
Sherlock Holmes in 1968, when
he replaced Douglas Wilmer - 
Nigel Stock again played Dr.
Watson. 
The show (now broadcast in colour) consolidated its initial
success by increasing ratings
to 15.5 million viewers.
Hammer's version of The Hound 
of the Baskervilles (1959) featured Cushing's first take as Holmes, and 
the TV adaptation of the mystery 
was the first to be filmed in its Dartmoor setting.
Cushing returned to the role one last time for The Masks of Death in 1984, and
even appeared as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle in The Great Houdini for Fox in 1976.
