I just read "Bending the Willow: Jeremy Brett as Sherlock Holmes" by David Stuart Davies. This book is a must read for fans of the Granada adaptation and/or Jeremy Brett’s portrayal of Sherlock Holmes.
sherlock holmes - I actually met Jeremy Brett in London where he was doing a stage play called "The Secret Of Sherlock Holmes". It was great I went outside and he and Edward Hardwick came out and we had a five minute conversation.It was a huge thrill.
"I was fifteen when I first met Sherlock Holmes, fifteen years old with my nose in a book as I walked the Sussex Downs, and nearly stepped on him. In my defence I must say it was an engrossing book." Laurie R.
