Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes stories were originally made into a TV adaptation in 1984, starring Jeremy Brett. In 2010, a modern version was created, starring Benedict Cumberbatch. Which Holmes do you think works best?
I am not a fan of Sherlock Holmes, but I do prefer the older version because it is set in the correct period, and Jeremy Brett portrays the character in the dark, sinister tone I expect Holmes to be in.
