It seems like if you're under 30 the preference is the new BBC Sherlock. 30 to 45 or so the favorite is Jeremy Brett. Over 45, us old codgers prefer Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce. Whoever was your introduction to the great Holmes.

I prefer Doyle's canon but have recently become enamored of the audiobooks as my eye site begins to fail.

I do like all the others, btw. Especially when the young'uns in my house get 'hooked' by watching the BBC Sherlock. My son, who has Aspergers watched about 10 minutes and said " I think he has Aspergers!" Smile

I would love to be able to watch the older Sherlock shows. The BBC Sherlock just doesn't do it for me. He just never fit into the image I had in my mind's eye of who Sherlock was. However, I must say, the new Watson is how I imagined him from the books. Smile I have read and re-read every Conan Doyle story many times. Never gets old.

EVERY Basil Rathbone/Nigel Bruce movie (of which there were 14) is available in full in YouTube ( I know because I recently re-watched them all) ... AND every Jeremy Brett episode (of which there were 42) are also available there (currently working my way thru these).
Caveats: at least, they're available in the US. And, who knows if they are there legally... Not me, but I enjoy them just the same)

Rathbone was good; Brett was awesome.

I haven't reread all of the posts, but has anyone watched the Russian version with Vasily Livanov. So many reviews from Sherlockians say he portrays Sherlock the best of all. I would really like to watch some of the Russian episodes sometime. The best I have watched though, it comes to Jeremy Brett, hands down.

WIthout a doubt Jeremy Brett. He inhabited the role (occassionally at the cost of his health) and while his acting is sometimes a little overblown the material demands it.


Still, while i'm new to pipe smoking, i'm pretty sure this is not a recommended method of re-lighting.

Youtube Link.  Shocked

Now the best Watson? That's a different story.

Jeremy Brett hands down. All the nervous energy and lack of tact of the stories. Also the Grenada series was closest, in most cases, to the actual canon. That said my favorite Watson was Howard Marion Crawford.

Has anyone read "The Beekeeper's Apprentice?" It's Sherlock as a near 60 fellow with a new partner a young woman. It's a rather good read.
