About Sherlock Holmes

Sherlock Holmes, the iconic detective created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, has been portrayed on screen countless times. However, the 1984 television series starring Jeremy Brett as Holmes is widely regarded as one of the best adaptations.

Brett's portrayal of Holmes is praised for its accuracy to the character in the original stories, as well as its depth and complexity. The show also features strong performances from the supporting cast, including David Burke as Dr. John Watson.

The series ran for four seasons and adapted many of Doyle's most famous stories, including "The Hound of the Baskervilles" and "The Sign of Four." The production design and costumes are also noteworthy, creating a vivid and immersive Victorian-era London.

Overall, the 1984 Sherlock Holmes series is a must-watch for fans of the character and the mystery genre. Its influence can still be seen in modern adaptations, such as the BBC's Sherlock.
