    The Cover Of The Book.

    I remember the first time I've read a book of the canon of Sherlock Holmes. I had already heard about him, but I had no idea about how was he.  I was 10. I was quite young, it's true, to fell in love for a man that older than me, but it wasn't bad. I really changed...

    Sherlock

    Has anybody caught the BBC series SHERLOCK? It is an updated version set in modern day London starring Benedict Cumberbatch. I think it is brilliant. They have really caught the essescene of the charactor and the stories whilst keeping it real for modern times. The actors are...

    Elementary, My Dear Pinkie......

    I have been a Sherlock Holmes fan since I was 12 years old; the first book I ever read was 'The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes' which ended with 'The Final Problem'  - and I was devestated to think that Holmes was dead. Then about 6 months later I discovered 'The Return of...

    What About the Rest?

    Poor old Arthur Conan Doyle I feel so sorry for him. Why? I hear you ask. How can you feel sorry for one of the greatest writers this country has ever produced.  The creator of a charactor so beloved by every generation since he first appeared over 100 years ago. ...

    It Was Love At First Reading

    Reading The All His Stories

    I am currently reading all this stories in the Complete Sherlock Holmes.  Whereas I love how he figures out the mystery, I hate the first person storytelling.  Ugh, Watson slows my enthusiasm down.  lol

    Who Acted The Role Best?

    I figure Jeremy Brett played the role best. The intensity he brought to the role was phenomenal. Whats your opinion?

    Who Couldn't Love Those Stories?

    Every single nuance of Holmes's character is

    writ large across Jeremy Brett's face, from his engaged hyperactivity to his disengaged languor. Smoking his pipe to solve a problem, playing the violin (badly) to relieve stress... His social skills (or lack thereof) and sense of drama are all intact, and you can practically...

    This timeless character may be portrayed by

    Robert Downey Jr. or Benedict Cumberbatch or Jonny Lee Miller but he's perfect each time. Each actor has a different way of showcasing the enigmatic Sherlock Holmes. My preference is definitely towards Cumberbatch's Sherlock (I have a soft-spot for BBC shows). Recently I came to...

    Jeremy Brett's Sherlock

    Think it would have been late 80’s/early 90’s when I first “got into” the Sherlock Holmes stories and it’s all thanks to an actor (sadly no longer with us) called Jeremy Brett. There have been many actors over the years who have played in this role, obvious choices...
