Ranking the Sherlocks

Ranking the Sherlocks

By Tom Eames and Morgan Jeffery

Elementary, dear listener…

For this episode, Tom and Morgan pick three actors who have played Sherlock Holmes, before agreeing on an overall ranking of the very best on-screen Sherlocks of all time.

We also discuss a few honourable mentions, the difference between a ‘bumbling’ or ‘capable’ John Watson and the politics of the deerstalker hat.

The main six actors we focus on are:

Basil RathbonePeter CushingRobert Downey JrRobert StephensBenedict CumberbatchJeremy Brett
