The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes Fan Tributes9 Ian Payne from walsall: Lovely Programme - the best Sherlock Holmes series ever and the best actors ever to pportray Watson [aka Edward Hardwicke] and Holmes [Jeremy Brett]. I watch it regularly on ITV 3 -repeat after repeat !!!!
I saw Jeremy playing a young tearaway in THE STRANGE REPORT on ITV 4 during 2006.
I wrote a bio about the Hollywood actor Sir Cedric Hardwicke in 2006, who haied from Lye near Stourbridge.
I liased with Sir Cedric's son Edward Hardwicke during that period and what a kind, caring, person he is. A real gentleman infact.
My book is in Lye Library and there is a lovely sculpture of Sir Cedric in Lye by TIM TOLKIEN - a relation to JR TOLKIEN.
Infact Arthur Conan Doyle once came to my home town of Walsall to help a man wrongly convicted of a crime. There is gossip abound that he married a Walsall lady - who knows ?
8 Zoe Luscombe from Plymouth: Excellent it was sad the last case of Sherlock Holmes
7 Rosie from England: Jeremy Brett was an astonishing actor, and Holmes gave him the recognition he deserved. He brought so many nuances of temperament to the role, in a quite unforgettable interpretation.
6 Vicki from Edinburgh: Jeremy Brett was the greatest Holmes ever and no comment that I can make will ever do him his proper and overdue justice. RIP Jeremy. "Onwards and Upwards"
5 Lindsey Brown from Sheffield England: I have read all the Sherlock Holmes stories and on screen Jeremy Brett manages to bring richness to his character. He's so good that to me he will always be THE ONLY Sherlock Holmes worth watching.
4 John Foster from Inverness: Glad to see 'The Cardboard Box' story being screened soon. The acting in this episode is played with great intensity and feeling, and brought the words from the written page to life.
3 henry from uk: Thank you for the opportunity to pay tribute to Jeremy Brett for his portrayal of Sherlock Holmes.
What distinguishes Brett's performance is his genius for capturing Holmes' dark side, a darkness he probably shared and which ultimately consumed him.
There is nothing cuddly or 'user friendly' about Brett's Holmes. Children avoid him and dogs shun him.
But to us mortals he will be forever that hypnotic, rivetting consulting detective, who draws our love and respect through the genius and sacrifice of Jeremy Brett.
The king is dead. Long live the king.
2 Jane Parkinson from Colne Lancashire but living in Manchester: The day Holmes returns from a watery grave after his fall off the top of the cliff on the continent, whilst wrestling with Professor Moriaty. The expression on Watsons face is unbelievable. How he has kept everything in Holmes study just as it was before he "died"
1 Ole Palm from Odense, Denmark: 'My favourite moment' of the TESH cannot be pinpointed to a single moment, but could best be describes as the general mood of the series - and, obviously, the vivid and unique interpretation of Sherlock Holmes by Jeremy Brett. I look forward to the next run of the series in Denmark.
