    I never actually received my Arsenal Lupin book which got damaged in transit. I keep meaning to re-order. Thanks for reminding me Carol👍 Considering Doyle tended to be a bit dismissive toward his most famous creation he certainly wasn’t willing to let anyone else write Holmes into stories. This is the reason that Solar Pons came into being. Doyle refused to let August Derleth write Holmes stories after Doyle had told him in 1928 that he was definitely finished with him. So Derleth invented Pons. Holmes in all but name. And I’m glad he did.🙂

    I assumed that the five that are mentioned at the bottom aren’t the ‘other’ five? Maybe they are though?

    It would be the nephew’s Carol. I wonder why only these three get a mention? https://conandoyleestate.com/

    The Directors are Catherine Ruml Doyle who is the daughter of Doyle’s nephew from his first wife. Richard John Francis Doyle who is the son of Doyle’s nephew from his second wife. And Director Of The Conan Doyle Estate is Richard Pooley who is Doyle’s step great Grandson. They don’t exactly advertise who the other 5 are though. No mention of them on the Estate website.

    Perhaps with someone like Stephen Fry petitioning something might happen? I thought Rupert Everett was excellent as Holmes too. It would have been good if they’d decided to make another one. Ian Hart was a was Watson twice of course, to Everett and Roxburgh. Apparently he appeared in an episode of Elementary too.

    I also hope that he gets the long overdue recognition that he deserves in the form of some kind of Lifetime Achievement Award.👍

    Me neither Carol. I enjoyed Mr Holmes. I wouldn’t have complained if they had decided to do another ‘older Holmes’ movie. Not 90 of course but perhaps in early retirement.

    Perhaps they might have asked him to star in Mr Holmes instead of Ian McKellen?

    It’s hard to believe but the great Jeremy Brett would have been 86 years old today. What a loss. Happy birthday Mr Holmes👍

    North By Northwest has always been in my top 5 movies. Haven’t seen it for a while so I might break out the Hitchcock box set over Christmas and watch it again (it might make up for Holmes & Watson.......and I never thought I’d say that!)

    Well I I didn’t know that Grant had been considered as Bond. 58 was a bit much though. Connery was only 53 when he made his Bond comeback in Never Say Never Again (which I quite liked) I didn’t know that Moore was considered before Connery either! I saw a clip of Brosnan the other day making a brief appearance in the final scene of one of my favourite movies of the Eighties The Long Good Friday. As for the possible continuation of Bond my views might not be popular. I don’t want him as a Taiwanese Transsexual or a Haitian Hermaphrodite or a black lesbian dwarf or a gay Italian amputee. It’s 100% good to have a female lead role spy who outperforms all the men and saves the day (the more the better) but let’s leave Bond alone please. But to answer Hikari’s question of : will Bond return? I just can’t see there being no Bond. There’s always a Bond. And let’s face it...£$£$£$£

    You could be right Carol. I guess that we could add horror movies to that category? Even as one of worlds biggest Brett-as-Holmes fans even I can’t picture him as Bond.👎 Ive always thought that if they’d started Bond movies in the fifties then it had to have been Cary Grant for me.👍

    The BAFTA’s began in 1947 (Wiki) but it’s true that Brett never got any kind of acting recognition. Considering how highly regarded he was (especially for his portrayal of Holmes) it’s surprising as the acting profession appears to like throwing awards at anyone. I didn’t realise this (or I’d forgotten it) but apparently he turned down the chance to take over from Sean Connery as Bond leaving the way open for George Lazenby.

    True enough Carol. Even more so perhaps after the Douglas Wilmer and Peter Cushing tv series which were both very good. Its now approaching 25 years since the final Grenada episode. September 12th next year will be the 25th anniversary of Brett’s death. Stephen Fry and others are pushing for him to be given a posthumous award. Long overdue in my opinion.👍 This is a good interview if you get time for a look.

    The things I’ll do for Sherlock Holmes Arcadia 😃I can at least console myself with the fact that I only spent £1. Sherlock Gnolmes next perhaps?
