Synopsis by Linda Rasmussen
"The Naval Treaty" is an episode of the television series The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, an superb adaptation of the Sherlock Holmes mystery stories, produced in Britain for Granada TV. In this episode directed by Alan Grint, Jeremy Brett portrays the famed detective aided by his companion Dr. Watson (David Burke). Holmes helps the very ill Percy Phelps (David Gwillim) find an important treaty that was entrusted to his care and stolen. This episode, written by Jeremy Paul, is one of the more famous Holmes stories, and his faithfulness to the original published version in the Strand Magazine during the late 19th century is exceptional. This series was followed by several sequels, as well as a few feature-length TV movie adaptations.
