Maybe it's pointing to the obscurity of the show, especially if it's British.

No it's American. Probably obscure due to its mediocrity. But not due to its star-studded cast!

Shall I give another clue?

Okay, here's a hint. The actor who played Sherlock was, like Sherlock, known to move in several of the highest circles.

Well, no wonder this has all been so obscure. According to IMDb this was an episode of Fantasy Island!

And that's Mel Ferrer as Moriarty.
