The Second Stain

Holmes ought to have been accorded a baronetcy. Of that I am in no doubt. I occasionally get "carried away" when I view the singularly splendid series of Sherlock Holmes played by the late Jeremy Brett who, to my mind, was utterly peerless in his portrayal of our greatest detective.

This evening I watched The Adventure Of The Second Stain, a case where Holmes uncovers another mystery and recovers a missing letter of the utmost import to HM Government.

Brett was supreme as Holmes; he epitomized Holmes.

I agree. He puts a face to the character when I'm reading as well.
