In Honor of Sherlock Holmes Day, Here are the Most Notable Reincarnations of the Character
By Desiree Pore
In case you didn’t know, it’s our favorite private detective’s day today! Yup, today is Sherlock Holmes Day, as today is also Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s (the creator of the beloved character) birthday. Over the years we’ve seen various adaptations of the character and each adaptation were received differently by fans of the fictional private detective. Out of all the films and TV shows about the detective, we picked 8 Sherlock reincarnations that really gave their own interpretations of the character.
The series that catapulted Benny Cumberbatch to fame, Sherlock is a modern day retelling of Sherlock along with his partner, Watson, as they solve crimes in modern day London.
Out of all the adaptations that have been made, this one’s the most innovative: Miss Sherlock gives a very different take on the beloved character, as both Sherlock and Watson are portrayed by women, with the story set in modern day Tokyo.
A typical Pinoy TV show requires having this: a love story. Now the question is this; “how can a love story and a serious story about a high-functioning sociopath be pulled off?” We don’t know the answer to that question either, that’s why it’s a good thing that this show got cancelled after 3 months of being on the air.
The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes
Known as the quintessential Sherlock, Jeremy Brett’s Sherlock portrayal lasted for 10 years and is highly regarded. The actor embraced Sherlock’s personality and made the character his own, proving that he is the human manifestation of the beloved character.
