If only you could swap Basil Rathbone for Jeremy Brett into that series It would be great. Brett's good, but there are moments where he gets way too theatrical and over the top. His manic depression gets a bit too...manic.

He is a little theatrical but not way too much - I do think his moods do match the Holmes of the books..I also love the actor(s) playing Watson too. Despite liking Nigel Bruce alot - I much prefer a less bumbling Watson. Ian Hart was great in the 2 BBC productions as the great doctor.

I do think Brett wouldn't tackle the Nazi's unlike Rathbone's consulting detectives.

Any way no doubt Guy Richie's take will blow em al lout of the water.

Nigel Bruce's bumbling old boy routine is annoying.

I really liked Peter Cushing as Holmes. He had the profile.

YEah but u still gotta like Bruce.

I'd like to see some of the Douglas Wilmer stuff (the Holmes before Cushing took over) - I like the Cushing ones (I'm a huge fan) but he lacks the energy Holmes should have (he showed this in his Van Helsing roles). Granted I've not see all of the Cushing stuff...

U seen Tom Baker in The Hound - now that is interesting :)

seems like it was a short-lived bargain. At least 20 people on one of the UK DVD forums I post on got theirs for the lower price.
