Sherlock Holmes Complete Series DVD Reviewed - Starring Jeremy Brett as Sherlock

In my opinion, Jeremy Brett makes the best Sherlock Holmes in any Sherlock movie or series.  This complete DVD series collection is totally awesome!  Now, we can watch, or re-watch, any individual Sherlock Holmes episode whenever we wish. 

Our son gave his father Sherlock Holmes: The Complete Granada Television Series set of DVD's for Father's Day.  He knew this would be the perfect gift for his dad, who originally had the shows on VHS.  The tapes are getting old, plus the DVD collection is much easier to store and watch on a variety of devices including his laptop. What we have discovered though, is that some of the TV series episodes were missing from the tapes, but are included in this DVD collection.  How wonderful it has been to rediscover the missing episodes.

In addition to giving his dad the DVD collection, our son has spent hours watching the shows with us. We all love Sherlock Holmes, therefore it makes the perfect TV series for us to watch together.

Jeremy Brett as Sherlock Holmes


As I said in the introduction, Jeremy Brett is my favorite actor that ever played Sherlock Holmes.  His overall looks, facial expressions, his voice inflections, as well as his athleticism are perfect for the Sherlock character.  

In one episode, he easily jumps over and clears a couch.  In other episodes, he is seen stealthily walking up on someone.  He is also masterful in fisticuffs.  It is difficult to believe the same man who can vault over a couch, could also walk so silently, or engage in a physical fight, but Jeremy Brett pulls off each of those feats effortlessly.  He makes the fictional Sherlock Holmes character believable. 

Whilst Sherlock Holmes is also a mental genius, Jeremy Brett is an acting genius!

  1. My son-in-law is a HUGE Sherlock Holmes fan and have often heard him talk about this, his favorite character, so I perfectly understand your excitement over having the complete television series. Enjoy!

    1. It is a great series Elf! As much as you love mysteries, I wouldn't be surprised if you enjoyed a Sherlock dvd every now and then too.

  2. My husband is a huge fan of Sherlock Holmes, and we have yet to see this version of the series that stars Jeremy Brett. It seems like we will need to! Many years ago, after Babylon 5 (one of our favorite TV series of all time) John bought me a complete DVD set of Babylon 5 DVDs, and it was fantastic to be able to re-watch the entire series with him, at our own pace and without having to wait a week (or months) for the next episode or new season. So, I can see why your husband loved getting this Sherlock Holmes DVD set of the entire series, and why it's such a thoughtful gift that the entire family can enjoy together, again and again.

    1. We do enjoy re-watching them Margaret! It is nice to be able to stop when needed, or even go back slightly on the DVD if we missed some words. I find these stories very enjoyable.

  3. I must be the odd man out, we haven't watched too much of Sherlock Holmes at all. Maybe this is something I should look into. Now that we are back to watching television, this would be a good set to have when there is nothing else that fills our needs. A good relaxing mystery can be so enjoyable. Thanks for this review, I will look into it for sure.

  4. The Sherlock Holmes Complete Series is a terrific gift idea for fans. DVDs can be so handy to have on hand - just pop the movie in a laptop or dvd player and watch. Versus, searching netflix and other programming platforms. Sometimes I just want to watch something without have to enter apps.
