Jeremy Brett
The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes
1984

Sherlock Holmes, the most famous fictional detective of all time, has been portrayed by dozens of actors, but none more beloved than Jeremy Brett, who owned the role from 1984 until his death in 1995. Adventures was the first of four Holmes-Watson series produced by Granada TV for British television (the others: The Return of..., The Casebooks of..., and The Memoirs of...). The show immediately resonated with viewers, who seemed to appreciate not only Brett's dramatic flair, but his uncanny likeness to Sydney Paget's original illustrations of Holmes.
