mystery mondays: Sherlock Holmes: The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle

Jeremy Brett
Jeremy Brett is by far my all-time favorite actor to portray Sherlock Holmes (one of my all-time favorite characters). between his performance, the fine work of the BBC, the gorgeous sets, and the quality of the rest of the cast, you end up with mystery perfection. in The Blue Carbuncle we get an extra fun dose of Sherlockisms thanks to Brett who keeps his snark a little bit playful, perhaps because it's Christmas time, but his wit and sleuthing are still sharp as ever.

this mystery is a more light-hearted one as it's not based on a murder, but a theft. it's chock-full of charismatic characters from the valet to the royalty. I highly recommend this episode, and actually the entire series. (except for the full length features. for some reason those aren't as well executed as the episodes.)
