About the Book
“I believe that Jeremy Brett's characterisation has ended that debate once and for all: Jeremy was unquestionably ‘The Sherlock Holmes’”. Charles L. Allen, Chairman, Granada Television “In twenty years to come we shall still regard Mr Brett as the definitive Sherlock Holmes of the twentieth century”. David Stuart Davis, Editor, Sherlock Holmes: The Detective Magazine For over a decade Jeremy Brett played the master sleuth of Baker Street in thirty-six episodes and five feature-length films. The Granada Television Sherlock Holmes series sold to over eighty countries worldwide and many people the world over regarded Jeremy’s interpretation as the most profound and brilliant portrayal in the history of television. Despite over a hundred actors having played Sherlock Holmes, Jeremy will always be remembered as The Definitive Sherlock Holmes. Yet little is known of the man prior to his outstanding success. This book puts the record straight with a short biography, career listing, letters from admirers, cast list of every Sherlock Holmes episode, and 100 photos covering Jeremy’s career from drama school to his triumph as Sherlock Holmes. This is a new edition of the book with the same name that was printed in 2001. Some pictures and text remain the same and other pictures have been added. The Sherlock Holmes section has changed with a number of new photos.
