It was later adapted by Creator/BigFinish, who also made it a ''de facto'' crossover with their own regular Sherlock Holmes series, mentioned below.



* Creator/BigFinish, most famous for their extensive range of ''Series/DoctorWho'' [[AudioPlay/BigFinishDoctorWho audio plays]], have been producing a series of Sherlock Holmes dramas. There are four in the series so far: one is an adaptation of a canonical story, one is set during Holmes' elderly years after the passing of Dr. Watson, one is a metafictional tale in which Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Professor Moriarty conspire against Holmes, and the most recent installment pits Holmes against UsefulNotes/JackTheRipper. The Great Detective is played by Roger Llewellyn and Nicholas Briggs. In the most recent release, Briggs' Holmes meets the Creator/BigFinish version of Dorian Gray.

* Creator/BasilRathbone and Nigel Bruce starred as Holmes and Watson in a popular series of film adaptations in the 1930s and 1940s. The first two ("The Hound of the Baskervilles" and "The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes") were produced by TwentiethCenturyFox and were based on, respectively, the Doyle novel and the William Gillette play; both were set in the Victorian era. The others, produced by Creator/{{Universal}}, moved the setting to the 1940s. Initially, Holmes and Watson fought ThoseWackyNazis, but they later went up against more conventional crooks. Bruce's portrayal of Watson as a bumbling incompetent rather than the original ladykilling man of action helped begin a long chain of similar adaptations.

* ''VideoGame/FateGrandOrder'' is an unusual example - while he's not ''the'' focus character, he is introduced as a major character in the game's sixth story chapter and joins the main cast, regardless of the player's status in obtaining him as a playable "Servant" party member, in the course of the ''Epic of Remnant'' expansion. [[spoiler:James Moriarty makes a similar debut in the first ''[=EoR=]'' chapter and makes further appearances later on.]]

* 1979, ''Film/MurderByDecree'' starring Creator/ChristopherPlummer as Holmes and James Mason as (a Non-Flanderized) Watson on UsefulNotes/JackTheRipper case. The basis for the plot was the book ''Jack the Ripper: The Final Solution'' by Stephen Knight, the same book that would be the basis for Creator/AlanMoore's ''Comicbook/FromHell'' some years later. It was seen by some as a DarkerAndEdgier Sherlock Holmes movie but, given the subject matter, it's understandable. This was the second time Holmes and the Ripper met; the first time was in the 1966 movie ''A Study in Terror''.

* Holmes and Watson appeared in one episode of ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold''. During their time, Jason Blood tried (and failed) to bring Batman to that time but Holmes completed the spell. Holmes was soon able to deduce Batman must have been born to some doctor or at least wealthy man.
