|Sherlock...window gazing at the British Museum|
I was doing a bit of 'I Spy' on my way to the British Museum the other day. I discovered a menagerie of Sherlock's in a tourist shop window, facing the British Museum. It made me think of all the mysteries hidden within the museum..so many, that I imagined Sherlock Holmes 'on the case' and having a time of it.
I have long been a fan of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's 'Sherlock Holmes' mysteries. I should be honest and mention that my enjoyment has come from the TV/movie versions. Sad to say, I have not read his books...yet.
When it comes to TV/movie versions, I can not say that I have an all time favourite as I enjoy them all. At the end of the day, in the role of Sherlock Holmes, whether it be Robert Downey Jr, Benedict Cumberpatch or Jeremy Brett, they each have their own spin on the character and I find them all endearing. Jude Law, Martin Freeman and David Burke as the familiar Dr Watson play their roles brilliantly. It's all good fun!
