For a long time, I couldn't imagine Holmes and Watson portrayed by anyone other than Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce. Rathbone's crusading Sherlock Holmes made 1940's England safe from crime by outwitting Professor Morarity, right under the nose of Scotland Yard. Although Basil Rathbone, now and forever, is fabulous in the role, Jeremy Brett, to my mind, is Sherlock Holmes. Brett's Granada series portrays Sir Conan Doyle's detective living in turn-of-the-century London. Drug addicted, self-absorbed, and self-indulgent, this Holmes is void of grace and has only a modicum of social conscience. With little regard to upholding the law but relentless in his quest for self-gratification, Brett's Holmes solves crime as a means of warding off boredom. But in doing so, he maintains a sense of justice all his own. This series sets scenes in beautifully lush locations. Characters are glamorous and complex. Dialog is clever, and story is tight. For me, this is 43 hours of pure pleasure. Storytelling just doesn't get better than this.

When I got the package I didn't open the CDs and threw away the packing. I just now, a month later, removed the clear plastic film and could not get the CDs out of the cardboard folder without tearing the folder. The plastic inside was full of broken shards. I think it had been left in a hot environment and the plastic melded into the cardboard folder. I had to take the CDs out of the plastic mess. I had small plastic shards all over my kitchen. What a mess. I did not have a packing slip to return the mess. I learned a valuable lesson.

Ultimate Holmes

Comments about PBS The Ultimate Sherlock Holmes Collection 12PK DVD:

Jeremy Brett is the ultimate Holmes. When I watch him as Holmes he perfectly personifies the Homes that Doyle described in the books. The stories are true to the books and the atmosphere of the times they are set is exceedingly well done throughout the whole series. I have enjoyed, and will continue to enjoy, watching this version of Holmes above all others.

The Ultimate Sherlock Holmes Collections 5 STARS!!

Comments about PBS The Ultimate Sherlock Holmes Collection 12PK DVD:

I love this collection. Jeremy Brett will always be my favorite Sherlock Holmes. In my opinion, his portrayal is the most accurate to the character in the books that I've seen so far. Edward Hardwicke is my favorite Dr. Watson. The series treats Holmes and Watson characters with respect. Great drama with a little comedy here and there.

Comments about PBS The Ultimate Sherlock Holmes Collection 12PK DVD:

The only way it could've been better ?
Probably no way but I'll say "If it had been a Basil Rathbone" - it might've been, but what do I know ?
Superb in quality, superb in aesthetics.
"100% +".

This version of Sherlock has always been my favorite. Now I can watch any time I want. I waited years for a price I could afford and it was well worth the wait.
