It just feels wrong to me when Sherlock Holmes isn't Basil Rathbone Big Smile

The Basil Rathbone films were the first to move away from the classical Victorian era settings and "re-imagine" the stories. The BBC series that has proven popular today, is a direct result of this departure from the exact interpretation that Jeremy Brett classically delivered.

Personally, I like them a lot, and still watch them all, with "The Murder Rooms" ranking very highly as well.

I won't however be watching the Lucy Lui ones, it's hard to keep abreast of how she could become Watson.
