This Is Genius: No Place Like Holmes

© Tiger Aspect Television

A one-off tv pilot co-written by Dan Tetsell back in 2005 has emerged online.

This Is Genius: No Place Like Holmes is a spoof documentary for BBC4 which takes a psychogeographical journey into Sir Arthur Conan-Doyle’s vision of London.

It was written by Tetsell with Danny Robins, and stars Justin Edwards, who you may recognise from TVO-related projects like Pixelface, Blake’s Junction 7, Lifespam, Black Mirror or Sorry I’ve Got No Head – but who is perhaps best known for his part as Ben Swain in The Thick Of It.

Also featuring the voices of Alex Lowe & Steven Berkoff, and directed by Tim Kirkby, This Is Genius is a nice slice of silly hokum that will no doubt appeal to anyone with a passing interest in Sherlock Holmes, or great comedy.  You can view it below.
