** Watson's military service takes place in the unspecified "East," not Afghanistan - probably because the Soviet Union had [[Main/SovietInvasionOfAfghanistan its own military activity in the area]] at that time.

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: The main theme. It was adapted from a filler theme played by TheBBC World Service, thus giving Russian audiences a perfect leitotif for Britain. Of course, Russian audiences shouldn't have been listening to the BBC World Service in the first place due to Soviet censorship. The fact that the theme succeeded was testament to how widespread Soviet illegal listening was.

The series is generally true to the Doyle stories, but is more of an {{Adaptation Distillation}} than a straight page-to-screen conversion. The combination of the [[VictorianBritain Victorian British]] setting and the Russian sensibilities of the creators give the series an interesting blend of cultural influences. Livanov, Solomin, and many of the supporting actors give memorable performances - Livanov was even awarded an Order of the British Empire for his portrayal of Holmes - and the [[EarWorm opening theme is insidiously catchy.]] Among those fans aware of the series, however, it is still considered one of the, if not ''the'', pre-eminent adaptations of Conan Doyle's work. Another point in its favour is that it is not as political as some Soviet productions were - Holmes and Watson are not portrayed as proto-Marxist-Leninists, launching into AuthorFilibuster, and despite the rich opportunity to do so, the inequalities of Victorian life are not presented as flaws of modern-day capitalism. They did miss a trick by not having Holmes and Watson meet Karl Marx, however.
