Holmes for the Holidays

jeremy-brett-3b

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.

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.
