Behind the scenes

In the ITV/Granada Television adaptations, Baker Street and several adjacent streets are represented by a detailed period backlot, purpose-built for the series at Granada Studios in Manchester during the early 1980s. In addition to this main backlot, several smaller backlots were also built to represent generic Victorian era London streets and alleys. [1] Between 1988 and 1999, the Sherlock Holmes backlots were open to the public, as part of the Granada Studios Tour.


  • The theme in the series' opening titles also represents the leitmotif of Baker Street and Holmes' residence at 221B Baker Street.
