    Being a Holmes fan, i never liked this so didnt watch much of it. I liked the 2 films with r d jr and the old films were great too as i grew up with them, but Jeremy Brett will forever be Sherlock

    Precisely. Exactly what they did with Dr Who

    Basil Rathbone you mean? I was never that keen on the Jeremy Brett versions. Production values are very poor in most of them, and the dialogue is stodgy at best

    Cucumberpatch does a very good job of the new version, I think. He made the role his own, can't fault him.

    Yeah, Basil.. they were great in there own way...you dont like Jeremy.. jeez, he is and lived the part. Ive got the boxset and i see no problems with it. You can also watch him go insane in real life as he becomes so involved with the part, which was a shame, although did series no real harm

    Nothing wrong with his acting, he plays the part very well. Just the scripts and the production.

    I watched all the Rathbone ones as a kid, they used to be on BBC2 at tea-time in the winter. They have a great atmosphere to them none of the other versions capture.

    I never was that big a fan of Dr Who.

    Blake's 7 was the real deal, though, in the same way UFO was far superior to the more commercial and populist Space 1999 ...



    I do like Cumberbatch and Freeman as a duo - they're the most watchable pair since Fry and Laurie in (the definitive) Jeeves and Wooster.

    I agree absolutely. I have the box set; to me Fry and Laurie are Jeeves and Wooster, just as David Suchet is Poirot.
    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?
