    This is timely - I think it was this thread (or certainly one of Ed's posts) that got me in to JB's Sherlock...Turns out it's one of the few things that connects me and my Gran - and a such the box set of all JB Sherlocks is currently (well, at some point today/tomorrow!) being wrapped for her xmas present. :cool::thumbs:

    I prefer the earlier (pre-Richenbach) Holmes to the latter one though.:oops:

    Also really really really recommend the audiobook as narrated by this guy The Complete Sherlock Holmes

    The "Oooooh" at the footwork :D

    Can we all accept 'warm' as the new 'vibrant'!?

    I don't know how they all kept a straight face. The barman is wonderfully deadpan.

    Unfortunately the south African villain kind of spoils that episode...and the drunk preist. Just makes jb shine brighter though...

    Tbh a lot of them are a blur of aristocracy brit or Empire (cricket test nation) brute weirdo as a bona fide 'nasty piece of work'...Like Columbo (no 1 pipping JB''s Sherlock IMO) it was never about the whodunnit :cool:

    Blates not waiting for Grandma to open her pressie:oops:, reacquainting myself with (as this torrent says) s3 as we speak :thumbs:.

    Again, it's the small things, but this place is my reddit...@editor s feats span far (far far!) beyond this, but merely nudging me in the path of this is worth the entrance fee alone :):thumbs:

    Very very gentle. Not much plot.

    its more a philosophical/existential film its true, but there was a case there and some clever writing.
    if youre still watching jeremy brett in this day and age i reckon you might get along with it

    I agree. Lucy Liu nails it.

    I picked the DVD up at a charity shop a few weeks ago, enjoyed watching it too, the story is quite well thought out.

    i like the idea that the last Sherlock Holmes book was written as a deliberate whitewashing lie by Watson, clever
