Jeremy Brett at his best
Sometimes I just go, watch an episode of Granada Holmes, enjoying every minute with pure joy, loving Jeremy Brett’s crime solving dearly, sobbing with David Burke over the “Reichenbach Fall”, cheering with Edward Hardwicke when the best and only consulting detective ever lived comes back to live.
And sometimes just sit in silence, when the end credits roll, and you realize, such genius will never act again.
'My name is Sherlock Holmes. It is my business to know what other people don't know.'
Lovely interview with Jeremy Brett and Edward Hardwicke.
Behind the Scenes
Jeremy Brett and David Burke discuss a scene during ‘hair and makeup’.
"In height he was rather over six feet, and so excessively lean that he seemed to be considerably taller. His eyes were sharp and piercing, save during those intervals of torpor to which I have alluded; and his thin, hawk-like nose gave his whole expression an air of alertness and decision. His chin, too, had the prominence and squareness which mark the man of determination. His hands were invariably blotted with ink and stained with chemicals, yet he was possessed of extraordinary delicacy of touch, as I frequently had occasion to observe when I watched him manipulating his fragile philosophical instruments."
