      Know what you mean but without a doubt Bret was the most literal version of Holmes.

      Hi Folks,



      Saw the Jeremy Bret and Edward Hardwicke enactment of the Mazarin Stone recently and they have crossed the Mazarin Stone tale with that of the 3 Garridebs... felt totally let down...



      I always wondered about the times when Doyle was alive and which tales would be ideal to enact on stage and if Doyle had seen any of these skits...



      Always felt that the "Mazarin Stone" tale was the best to enact on stage as it is set in the rooms of Baker Street itself...



      Felt the same about the 3 Garridebs as there are only 2 scenes ; one at baker street and the other in Mr. Garrideb's residence....



      To see both these tales crossed with Mycroft and Sherlock Holmes putting in an appearence in the end.... felt like these guys are pandering Holmes to Hollywood watchers...



      What do you all think ?



      Cheers
