The best ever
These are the quintessential Holmes stories, and Jeremy Brett is incomparable as the great detective - he perfectly captures the mood and spirit of the authentic SH. His characterization is dazzling, witty, stylish and funny. Nobody's done it better.

Not so elementary
Watch these episodes if you enjoyed the recent reincarnation of S.H.. Jeremy Brett captures the essence of SH as Conan Doyle depicted him, in a superb way. These episodes taste, smell and feel Victorian/Edwardian which you cannot say for any other attempts at bringing Conan Doyle to the screen. And yes, I love the Rathbone versions.
