My friend was an enthusiastic musician, being himself not only a very capable performer but a composer of no ordinary merit.

I really like Eric Allaman's music for the series. He does some extremely beautiful variations on the theme song, some nice techno stuff to keep up the pacing, and then has no problem writing music that gives a really nice Baker Street atmosphere with a touch of futurism.

I was particularly impressed by his work on "The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle". Gorgeous Christmas music! It was amusing to hear "Silent Night" future-muzak and robotic carolers wishing us a merry Christmas and a happy new year, but I really loved the original music and the way he moved to that beautiful synth of "O Christmas Tree" at the very end as we looked at the holiday lights of New London.

Visit Eric's homepage and download an mp3 of the "Sherlock Holmes Suite" (his techno music for chases and clues, etc.) from the bottom of his Television music page!
Eric at Looks like he did that Christopher Lee/Patrick Macnee Sherlockian miniseries, too. Okay, so they stunk and Harmony Gold produced it (which says it all), but now I have a valid reason to watch the movie! Go, Eric!

He took up his violin from the corner, and as I stretched myself out he began to play some low, dreamy, melodious air; his own, no doubt, for he had a remarkable gift for improvisation.

"Sherlock Holmes in the 22nd Century Theme"
Music and Lyrics by Raw
Music Coordinator:
Rita Kedineoglu
Music Editor:
Jeff Marr
Sometimes the chords were sonorous and melancholy.
Occasionally they were fantastic and cheerful.
Watson, A Study in Scarlet

As you can see, the theme song of Sherlock Holmes in the 22nd Century was written and performed by Raw, the same group which performed the funky little theme for Mummies Alive, another DIC series. The Holmes theme consists of a mixture of music, people singing 'Sherlock Holmes in the 22nd Century', and spoken samples from the cartoon. Again, it's a funky little song but it really grows on you!
