  • Not your father's Sherlock Holmes

    9.2
    The Holmes as played by Jeremy Brett was one of a series of spot on characterizations (see also Miss Marple, and Poirot); which are so true to the original character as described in the books, it's scary.
    As compared with the previous "gold standard" or Holmes as portrayed in the popular series of 30s-40s movies, the late Mr. Brett wears a bowler hat instead of the popularized deerstalker cap, and is much, much colder in his relations with other humans.
    In the final episode, you can see Jeremy is clearly sick (the poor guy had a bum ticker); cracks a smile only for a nanosecond when thanked by a child he had helped.
    His early death is a great pity, because there is a new series of Holmes books [set after his retirement, and eventual marriage to a brilliant American woman] out which he would have been a natural for.
