Screen version of Sherlock Holmes reaches its zenith in Jeremy Brett's portrayal of master sleuth.

After seeing Jeremy Brett as Sherlock Holmes, no actor should ever display such conceit as to imagine that he could ever come close to Mr. Brett's portrayal of "one of the most interesting characters in literature". Jeremy Brett IS Sherlock Holmes and in my opinion there can be no other. The great actor Basil Rathbone is,I must admit, a close second but, is still second. One might make the argument that Mr. Rathbone's screenplays were inferior to the absolutely top notch productions afforded Mr. Brett and to this I would agree. However when all is said and done Jeremy Brett will always and forever be the only actor to truly "become" Sherlock Holmes. The book should be closed on this subject and we,the public,left to enjoy Mr.Brett's unique performances.

The best, from the best

Jeremy Brett is simply the best Holmes ever, narrowly edging out the great Basil Rathbone of course, and this is probably the best adaptation of a Conon-Doyle short story.

A length adaptation includes some new plot strands that fit in well to the surrounding drama and heightens the hatred one feels for Milverton.

Excellent performances all round, especially from Robert Hardy, and both Brett and Hardwick fully rounded and comfortable in their roles makes this a superb piece of drama.

Well-crafted tale, with some additions to Doyle's story

I tend to look askance when they are not entirely faithful to Doyle's sacred canon, but for a Brett performance I'll overlook most anything. The additonal material, while not strictly necessary to the plot, were well-chosen and allowed them to develop more of an atmosphere, probably a good move for those not already dyed-in-the-wool Holmes buffs. Those of us who have most of the canon almost memorized often forget that newer generations of fans, unlike us, may be starting fresh and this may be their first exposure to Holmes, Watson and the foggy streets of Victorian London. A one-hour block is sufficient for almost any Holmes story, but I welcome a
stretched, movie-sized version when it is done well. This Holmes-Watson duo is, I believe, the best so far, and overall the large body of Holmes adventures they`left us will be the standard against which all others will be measured for a very long time.
