One of only 5 in a BBC series called Murder Rooms. Conan Doyle receives inspiration for his creation of Sherlock Holmes from his mentor Dr Joseph Bell. This one concerns strangulation, spiritualism and a photographer, abounding with plot twists.

Please forgive this entry as somewhat a vanity project but I was in this one as a member of a theatre audience followed by a star turn as a tea-boy for which at my age I was rather grateful. It was originally scheduled for transmission on the 11th September 2001 but horrendous events delayed it for a week. SJ

Murder Rooms The Photographer's Chair - This is the interior of Wilton's, E1, an oft seen location. It is a trick shot. We extras, sorry background artists, all sat on one side then moved to the other for a second shot and then magic did the rest.

Murder Rooms The Photographer's Chair - Hayman and Richardson. This was filmed in a dark and dank Kings' Cross shed just east of the canal and gasometers seen in Alfie. The late Richardson was kind enough to chat soon after this shot.

Murder Rooms The Photographer's Chair - The teaboy is grinning inanely. The trouble is that fellow co-background artist Steve (in the hat) was too good at getting me to corpse.
