Granada Brettish Holmes

It is always absurdly simple when you explain it!

It is all about Granada Holmes

and the wonderful, the great, the lovely, one and only

Jeremy Brett

So a thunderstorm two days ago seems to have destroyed the telephone and internet line. Probably I will come a little low the next few days. Take care people!

mrs-sardonicus asked: Hi, You're one person who may know this ... do you remember a black and white illustration of JB as Holmes, possibly from the 'New Yorker' magazine?? I know I have seen it, I possibly cut it out and kept it but I have not been able to find it online anywhere! It was brilliant, as I recall. Any suggestions?? Thank you! I'm not sure why it took me so long to find Granada Holmes blogs, it was such a passion when I was young, but I'm glad I'm following you. ♥

Hi.. uh I am not quite sure if you mean an article and / or just b / w pictures about JB.
The one thing that comes to my mind is ” Bending the willow ” by David Stuart Davies what has a very memorable b / w pic in front, but not sure what it got to do with the New Yorker. A hole book about Granadas show and Jeremy.Maybe you can specify what you remember and / or one of my followers already now what is it about. I am sorry, I am not a big help probably. :o)

“To me, the Sherlock Holmes stories are about a great friendship. Without Watson, Holmes might well have burnt out on cocaine long ago. I hope the series shows how important friendship is.”

Inspector G Lestrade from the Jeremy Brett series of the Sherlock Holmes stories I think fits his descriptions in the book rather well…

"a little sallow rat-faced, dark-eyed fellow"
- A Study in Scarlet

"a lean, ferret-like man, furtive and sly-looking,"
- The Boscombe Valley Mystery.

Weeeelllll, … no sorry… big veto!;)  Colin Jeavons is (personal opinion) a way too handsome Lestrade to be the Inspector in the canon (talking about his looking).But I have to admit this pic is not the best of him.
