Jeremy’s exuberance while filming ‘The Devil’s Foot’—an exuberance that to some extent was a result of his illness—led him to make additions to the story, some not always in keeping with either Conan Doyle’s Holmes or his previous performances. It was that great enthusiasm and thrill at developing the character that was responsible for us seeing Holmes wearing a bandana around his head, as Brett had worn one in the swinging ‘sixties. He also draped his scarf around his trilby hat in a strange way. Bohemian, maybe; risible, certainly. A still in The Sunday Times which featured Holmes with this scarf/hat concoction was captioned: ‘Sherlock Holmes as a teapot!’

Can we also take a moment to remember that that was the episode where Brett decided that Holmes’ cocaine habit was setting a bad example for kids and so had Holmes give in to Watson’s concerned cajoling and bury that mother in the sand whereupon I cried “I CAN’T” and clawed at the sofa for five minutes.
