Granada Holmes Fans


yo hey if you post/reblog/ENJOY the Granada Holmes, Jeremy Brett, David Burke, Edward Hardwicke, ANYTHING OF THE SORT, reblog/like this so I can find some Granada Holmes fans to follow!


The one and only Jeremy Brett as Sherlock Holmes.

Part 4 in the “Rarer Sherlock Holmes” series - this time, it’s a time-travelling version, with a cryogenically frozen Holmes, an American Watson, and a ‘modern-day’ take : Sherlock Holmes Returns

A message from thecoppercow
Ok, that's just freaky - I was watching the episode of Miss Marple that Rupert Graves appears in (great ep) and got to wondering about that unwritten rule that nearly all british actors have done Marple, Poirot or Taggart. So, I came to your blog to check if Wilby had ever done Agatha Christie.... and you've posted a gifset right there. Spoooooky :D

Hello! And apologies for yet another delayed reply… :/ 

Note: The three gifsets thecoppercow mentions – of James Wilby in Poirot S10 (2010), ‘Third Girl’, all by cumberbabemistressofjameswilby – start here (7 Aug 2014 on my blog).

The cornucopia of recent great James posts has focused my attention on just how many of the long-running British TV series (Masterpiece Mystery and beyond) he’s appeared in – while the list in which both James and Rupert have appeared over the years (separately, sadly – not together) is so staggering it makes my head spin.

Of the three series you mention, Rupert has appeared only in Marple. But – did you know – James has appeared in: Granada Holmes, The Bill (S1!), Silent Witness, Foyle’s War, Marple, Inspector Lewis, Poirot, Midsomer Murders, New Tricks, Ripper Street, Law & Order: UK, and Endeavour. 

Rupert’s list goes: Inspector Morse, Spooks, Ashes to Ashes, Waking the Dead, Marple, Wallander, Inspector Lewis, Law & Order: UK, New Tricks, Doctor Who.

(I’ve confined my lists to their credits in series designed/intended as long-running/returning, with the emphasis on crime and mystery.)

 I’d love to make a future comparative post on this! But a pictorial version could take a lot of work…

The Return of Sherlock Holmes: The Six Napoleons

"Well, Mr. Holmes…I’ve seen you handle a good many cases in my time, but I don’t know that I ever knew a more workmanlike one than this."


"Really, Holmes?"

Everybody loves Hathaway. That´s a normal, human reaction.
