A TRIBUTE TO JEREMY BRETT – PART 1
“Earlier this month Jeremy Brett would have turned 78. Despite having a very varied and distinguished career as an actor, he is invariably best know for playing Sherlock Holmes in the Granada series. For me personally, he was and always will be; THE Victorian Sherlock Holmes.
He was mesmerizing in the role, a charismatic and talented actor who brought a multi faceted and certainly immensely challenging character to life, capturing his essence in a way I believe had never been done before so completely. He has ruined me for any other actor to play the role in period and when I reread the canon now I hear Jeremy’s voice in my head speaking Sherlock’s lines, not because I am most familiar with his version, but because his portrayal embodies Holmes’ character so completely.
It was Jeremy Brett who brought Sherlock Holmes into my life and as the founder of Sherlockology, I owe him a great deal. Were it not for him, I would not have watched that first episode on BBC One in July 2010 of ‘Sherlock: A Study in Pink’ and thus Sherlockology would never have come about. Therefore, I would like to indulge in a little tribute to the magnificently sublime and forever missed, Jeremy Brett.”
