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?

Jeremy Brett definitely.

Jeremy Brett was absolutely the best - no one can compete against him. So much so, that in my imagination, Sherlock Holmes always looks like Jeremy Brett. Too bad he passed away... Brett is one actor I'd have loved to meet.

The Granada Productions series was as true to the real books as you could possibly get, and the little variations it has are refreshing rather than distracting.

About the movie.... the plot was good, the setting was good, the actors and costumes and dialogues were all good. There is one this that I really didn't like and that was the portrayal of the characters, especially Sherlock Holmes and Irene Adler. It spoilt all the fun for me.

I am with you...once Jeremy Brett set the standard, nobody in my mind could even come close...have you read about him?...his declining health before death was attributed to his close identification with the portrayal of Holmes...

I know! The professional risks of acting, LOL!!

JB for sure as the canonical Holmes, but Cumberbatch brings the character up to date brilliantly.
