Having watched many of Jeremy Brett’s perfect performances as the quirky and brilliant sleuth in Granada Television’s ten year run of The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, I must concede to the general opinion of this man:
He is singularly the best Sherlock Holmes
in television, feature film, or any other media.
Nobody even comes close. Yes, his performances even eclipse those of the definitive Basil Rathbone.
Brett delivers a true and long-lived tour de force as England’s greatest detective and sets the bar almost impossibly high for anyone else daring to take up residence at 221B Baker Street.
Bravo, Mr. Brett.
