Inspector Bradstreet

Inspector Bradstreet is a fictional Scotland Yard detective from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes series. He appears in three short stories: The Man With the Twisted Lip, The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle and The Adventure of the Engineer's Thumb.

Sir Arthur described him as "a tall, stout official ... in a peaked cap and frogged jacket." Sidney Paget's illustrations for the Strand Magazine depicts him with a full beard. Beyond this nothing is revealed about him in the canon.

Bradstreet appears three times in Granada Television's Sherlock Holmes series: The Man With the Twisted Lip, The Bruce Partington Plans (substituting for Inpsector Lestrade as Colin Jeavons was unavailable), and a cameo appearance in The Mazarin Stone. Each time he was played by Denis Lill.

He's also featured in M.J. Trow's The Adventures of Inspector Lestrade series.
