Episode 67. Hundreds of Holmes

The game is afoot this week as Alex and Jonathan take a look at three adaptations of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s famous detective, Sherlock Holmes: The Hound of the Baskervilles (1939), The Sign of Four (1987), and Sherlock‘s “A Study in Pink” (2010). We discuss the different personality traits of Sherlock Holmes that are emphasized in each actor, how the portrayal of Watson impacts our view of Holmes, and what makes Sherlock Holmes a character that continues to capture our imaginations.
