Granada TV Series with Jeremy Brett
The general consensus is that Jeremy Brett's portrayal of Sherlock Holmes in these 41 episodes over
11 years is perhaps the best filmed version of Arthur Conan Doyle's famous detective, and David Burke
was perfect casting as Dr. Watson (replaced later in the run by equally-talented Edward Hardwicke)
