The Case of the Whitechapel Vampire is a Canadian 2002 made for TV detective movie. The film uses Arthur Conan Doyle's characters but has original plot: Holmes investigates a number of strange murders in Whitechapel that rumors ascribe to vampires. Remaining skeptical about the supernatural, Holmes uncovers the real murderer. The movie is directed by Rodney Gibbons and stars Matt Frewer as Sherlock Holmes and Kenneth Welsh as Dr. Watson. This is the fourth and last installment in series of Sherlock Holmes fims starring Frewer and Welsh.
The following weapons were used in the film The Case of the Whitechapel Vampire:
Forehand & Wadsworth
Sherlock Holmes (Matt Frewer) carries a compact top-break revolver, as like as in other movies of the film series. It appears to be a Forehand & Wadsworth revolver, identified by its smooth front side of the frame, different from more common Smith & Wesson or Iver Johnson models.
Forehand & Wadsworth - .32 S&W
Holmes, disguised as a monk, aims the revolver at the "vampire" - Brother Abel (Tom Rack) in a horrible mask.

Inspector Attley Jones (Michel Perron) holds a revolver during the arrest of Dr. Chagas. Though the revolver is seen unclear, it appears to be a Webley RIC that was used by Jones in The Sign of Four.
