Brett is best

I will confess to a blindness of sorts now. I cannot conceive how anyone cannot see that Jeremy Brett is the single best Holmes we have ever had on screen. He simply blows everyone else out of the water without exception.

It is for this reason that I was very much surprised to read that someone (who shall remain nameless) thinks that Peter Cushing was the best Holmes in, wait for it, the 1959 Hammer version of The Hound of the Baskervilles.

Enough said.
