Sherlock Holmes, the creation of novelist Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, is one of the world’s greatest and most popular fictional detectives, as famous for his deerstalker and pipe as his legendary powers of observation and deduction. He is an aloof and private man driven by a fierce intellect that gives him astounding brilliance and unfathomable eccentricity in equal measure.

Agreed, Brett = Sherlock Holmes.

This series has a unique charm all of its own.

For anyone who's interested, I ran a year long project to re-master all of these for Granada back in 2003. We went right back to the original A-B negatives, making brand new interpos 16mm prints before re-telecining using the lastest equipment and a just released box called an Archangel which removed any scratches and camera shake etc. The difference between the old original ITV masters and the new ones I made were astounding.

However, there was one episode (which one I cannot remember) where we could not find the original print anywhere so it is just a re-master of the original digibeta video master.

I'm interested. Maybe you'd know - as this was shot on film and not vt would it ever be suitable for a hd release, or is there not enough resolution in the 16mm used?

For me Basil Rathbone was the definitive Sherlock.
Jeremy Brett comes 2nd.
Alternative to buying is to record them all off ITV3! :)
Decent price.Heat added.

I totally agree with stamfordblue about who was the best.:)

Brett was actually diagnosed with psychosis and had other health problems in the later episodes.

If you see the episodes in sequence as they were shot, you will notice that his character becomes progressively darker and darker.

Well worth the money spent considering that I bought the set for more than £60 2 years ago.

Yes it was shot on 16mm so the main problem with making it HD is that it was shot and framed for 4:3. If it had been Super 16 and therefore already widescreen we'd definitely have gone down the HD path. However, although we looked at removing 'sky and grass' to see if 16:9 was possible, it wasn't because there was too much action in the top or bottom of the screen throughout..

And to the other poster, I didn't actually do any of the work, I just hired those that did and they did a great job (The Finishing School - Leeds.)

I did another project the same year with around 35 episodes of Poirot too. They were done by Intervideo in London. Also remastered from new 16mm prints. These had the same problem, 4:3 only.
