I’m a bit of a late adopter to the Sherlock Holmes craze – and it was only watching Robert Downey Jr in the Sherlock Holmes blockbusters that sparked my interest.
I love his Sherlock – obviously clever, an absolute master of disguise, but he’s also a very physical Sherlock *cough* – he does an awful lot of fighting. Often in his vest, or bare-chested.
Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sherlock is clearly utterly brilliant, and very attractive to the ladies, but he’s a much colder Sherlock.
For me, though, the best Sherlock Holmes of the current crop has to be Jonny Lee Miller in Sky Living’s Elementary. He has that whole detached/unattainable thing going on, he’s remarkably intelligent, but he also has a vulnerability which frankly, makes him irresistible.
Which Sherlock Holmes do you like best? I’d love to know.
