Jeremy Brett was the coolest "Sherlock Holmes" of them all. One of the few TV shows that I enjoyed watching on a regular basis. It was unfortunate that Mr. Brett passed away right before they were going to shoot some new episodes.

He's awesome! I love Homes. Especially the endings where it all fits nice together. I also thinks it pretty funny that he's on kinds of dope

I love the Sherlock Holmes series that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle wrote. I have to, his birthday is the same as mine.
I'm a big fan of the sleuth series of stuff like this and many others. I also grew up reading Hardy Boys also, so I had an early start.

He's a fictional Character but the story based him in Baker Street in London. There's a sherlock holmes pub and the famous planetarium and Madame tussauds on the same street :)

I own a lil two volume paperback set that contains all the novels and short stories that Doyle wrote with Sherlock Holmes. I still read that cover to cover every now and then. That's the one thing that I really miss is decent detective shows on TV. I always liked the British TV adaptations of Doyle and Christie but they're so rarely aired here now, especially the Sherlock Holmes.

I downloaded most, if not all, of Doyle's Holmes stories into my PDA and whenever I'm stuck on a train or an airport, I'll pass the time away reading up on his latest adventures.

He's a surprisingly dark character in the original stories; much more complex than he's shown to be on film and TV.

I have that paperback set as well. However since it's based on original, I usually need a dictionary (I'm not English native) to translate many obsolete expresions. It slows me down, but I still love the stories.
