Morrison's "The Case of the Mirror of Portugal" (1971).

In "The Case of the Mirror of Portugal" shady investigator Horace Dorrington (played by Peter Vaughan) is on the trail of a priceless gem. This episode of The Rivals of Sherlock Holmes (with a 23-year-old Jeremy Irons) is based on the story by Arthur Morrison (from The Dorrington Deed-Box, 1897; see also Clare Clarke's Clues article, "Horace Dorrington, Criminal-Detective").
