One of my favorite episodes from this series. – DG
The Last Vampire
Sherlock Holmes (Jeremy Brett) and Dr. Watson (Edward Hardwicke) come to the aid of a small village that may or may not collectively commit a crime. The elderly Reverend Merridew (Maurice Denham) visits the detective on Baker Street with a strange request. One hundred years earlier, the village of Lambley burned down a house and its inhabitants on suspicion of vampirism. A descendant of the family, Stockton (Roy Marsden), has returned to the village. He is already blamed for the sudden death of the blacksmith, who he was arguing with earlier, and another family has just lost an infant son. The townspeople suspect Stockton, could Holmes and Watson come investigate the man before the village burns out its second suspected vampire?
