The best Sherlock Holmes... RT

This is on the Radio Times (British TV guide!) page today, as part of a "Detective Evening". Interesting mini-essay and even more interesting audience response:

Get it quick as it'll probably be gone soon :p

Heh, plenty of Brett-love! The Bert Coules audios are possibly my favourite adaption, but the Granada series has to come high on the video list.
Loved the Bert Coules ones I've heard - Merrison certainly has character - and gloriously I have a big treasure trove of recordings of theirs to listen to... huzzah! Always good to have a store of untapped Sherlock. Quite a few of the hilarious 50s series to watch too (Ronald Howard & that Marion fella) :)

Oh yez, and nice comment on that article that you've already seen, but here it is for radio fans' posterity anyway:

"I guess it's not surprising that Radio Times would overlook the senior service. Clive Merrison (with help from Michael Williams as Watson, followed by Andrew Sachs in the role following Michael's untimely death) is for me the quintessential Sherlock Holmes.

"And, happily, the radio series, dramatised by Bert Coules, completed the entire Conan-Doyle canon, plus a few extras penned by Bert based on stories alluded to in various adventures. Whenever I can, I find 45 minutes in the company of the audio versions of Holmes and Watson to be time well spent."
