A club of seven wealthy men (“The Good Comrades”) lives together in a Scottish castle (how chummy!). But that’s not all. Each member has taken out a large insurance policy with the beneficiary to be the last surviving member of the club.

The 10th entry in the series finds Holmes trying to solve a mystery of multiple murders amongst a club of men whose deaths benefit the living members. Based on the Doyle story 'The Adventure of the Five Orange Pips'. A by the numbers story that only reps a passable way of spending an hour and not much more.
Another intriguing Sherlock Holmes movie is ruined by how easily Holmes let numerous characters get killed like he's got no clue, especially since the solution is so easy. Dr. Watson go around talking to owls, shoot at armor and is almost killed - all for the possible laugh or two. Sorry, but I'm not a fan of Nigel Bruce's Watson and again he ruin the show. Great production values is the main reason to keep watching.
