Filmed in England in association with Yorkshire Television, the film premiered on CBS on 16 May 1990.
The screenplay was written by Charles Edward Pogue who had penned the earlier Ian Richardson Sherlock Holmes films, The Sign of Four and The Hound of the Baskervilles.
Reviews for the film were decidedly mixed. People gave the film a B review in its "picks and pans" column. Matthew E. Bunson in his Encyclopedia Sherlockiana opined "this is a surprisingly disappointing production despite the best efforts of all concerned and lavish attention to detail." Alan Barnes in Sherlock Holmes on Screen wrote that the film "is no more than a number of high-concept set-pieces linked by the flimsiest of stories."
