Jeremy Brett would have celebrated his 80th birthday today.

He is the embodiment of Sherlock Holmes for more than one generation. He brought us joy and pain and made us want to be smarter. His laugh was explosive and his misappropriation of furniture shaped the performance of younger Holmes portrayals.

Happy Birthday, Mr Brett. We will never forget and always appreciate you.

"In height he was rather over six feet, and so excessively lean that he seemed to be considerably taller. His eyes were sharp and piercing, save during those intervals of torpor to which I have alluded; and his thin, hawk-like nose gave his whole expression an air of alertness and decision. His chin, too, had the prominence and squareness which mark the man of determination. His hands were invariably blotted with ink and stained with chemicals, yet he was possessed of extraordinary delicacy of touch, as I frequently had occasion to observe when I watched him manipulating his fragile philosophical instruments."

Sherlock Holmes (Granada) » favorite scenes

Ok, This is one of my favorite parts of HOUN. It’s like… OH DUDE, CREEPY FUCKER WANTS YOUR SKULL, HOLMES. RUNNNN.

Okay so when we read Hound of the Baskervilles in high school our teacher had us draw fanart for it (I don’t know why) and one of my classmates drew Dr. Mortimer with giant fucking hands.

Jeremy Brett in a production of “Dracula”.  With set designs by Edward Gorey.

A ) DANG but I would have loved to have seen this.
B ) I once had a friend who had the pop-up book of Gorey’s stage design, Dracula: A Toy Theatre

Happy Birthday, Jeremy Brett! [November 3rd 1933 - September 12th 1994]

Still my definitive Sherlock, even tho I love Russian Holmes and Elementary Holmes A LOT. I guess I love them all for different reasons - my limited exposure to the various Holmeses all appeal to me in one way or another. But now that I’ve started reading Doyle’s books, Brett seems to most accurately capture the character Doyle is describing.

(of course this is also a subjective thing and is probably influenced by the fact that Granada Holmes was my introduction to the character. anyways)

You’re still missed, Jeremy.

The fact that it’s Jeremy against an Edward Gorey set basically makes this the best thing ever.
