    Default Best Sherlock Holmes actor?

    Before seeing Benedict Cumberbatch, I would have answered "Jeremy Brett, clearly". After, I would still answer "Jeremy Brett", because much of the enjoyment of Cumberbatch's Sherlock comes from the show as a whole.

    My father seemed to think Basil Rathbone was the greatest Sherlock Holmes, although I'm not sure he's seen much of the Brett version. (For me, the Rathbone version is rather stilted, dated and somewhat balderdash, whereas I agree with the opinion that Brett's version is visually and theatrically a brilliant representation of the Holmes character as appeared in paperform, with the additional benefit that Brett filmed all the Sherlock stories (although in the later ones, he is sadly lacking the energy of the earlier performances).

    As Doyle was most probably ISTJ, best Sherlock should be played by ISTJ actor. Don't remember such actors.

    I can't answer objectively seeing as I really haven't seen all the adaptations, but Jeremy Brett's portrayal of Holmes was magnificent. That is all I will say.

    The better you will type, the less you'll think about my opinion as ludicrous. For the start, you need correctly type yourself, at least.

    First of all you admitted that you read a version that may have been poorly translated

    Here let me do the honors and quote you some sherlock Holmes which you might find interesting for typing purposes. "It is a capital mistake to theorize before you have all the evidence. " ""I arrive at the conclusion without being conscious of the intermediate steps"

    As subjective human beings, the statement "Once you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth.” as a philosophy for practically solving cases is inductive reasoning, which is ...if the statement was taken objectively, it is a truism that is meaningless to determine whether it is or .

    I don't disagree with the typing of Sherlock as a LSE though, just that its famous that what Sherlock describes as deductive reasoning is wrongly labelled. (He uses both inductive and deductive reasoning in his cases).
