  • I don't think anyone of them actually conveyed the atmosphere that you actually feel from the character in the original novel, and I have read all Sherlock novels.

    But if I have to choose, it is between Downey Jr. and Cumberbatch. But I guess the edge goes to Robert Downey.

    But still, none of them really! xD

    • I'm more of a Downey fan here. I haven't watched enough of the Sherlock series to make an sound call on Cumberbatch. I'd like to though.

  • Oh, definitely Benedict Cumberbatch. =)

  • Benedict, because if sherlock were real, he'd be just as awkward and intelligent. Downey is good and sexy, but he doesn't fit the authentic image of sherlock.

  • None of them are so good as Basil Rathbone in the old ones.. the intense almost psychotic single mindedness... the new ones are too stable, too self assured!

  • I've watched all of them bar the first season of Elementary (Jonny Lee Miller) and I think that one is the best. Maybe it's been too long since I saw a new Sherlock by Cumberbatch but in my opinion, Jonny Lee Miller was the best. Cumberbatch a close second and Robert Downey Jr. third.

    • I didn't know he'd played him before. That would be interesting to see.

  • Of the current ones Benedict Cumberbatch.
    But if you want to go old school definitely Jeremy Brett.

  • Benedict Cumberbatch no question.

    Robert Downey Jr. is Iron Man and he should stick to that role.
    As for Jonny Lee Miller, you can't take a Brit out of London put him in New York and expect it to have the same British charm.

  • Well I guess RDJ's version of the character is the closest to the books. I'd have o go with Benedict Cumberbatch though.
