There have been a few actors I've liked as Sherlock Holmes (James D'Arcy & Rupert Everett) just to name a couple, but they pale in comparison to Jeremy Brett. I watched the Sherlock Holmes series when I was a kid & later as an adult & he's the reason I love the Sherlock Holmes stories. I wish they still showed them here. Thankfully they're on DVD now & hopefully 1 day I'll be able to afford to get them. Hopefully I'll be able to afford to get the books too. It is sad he's gone cause there will never be another like him.
