5. Not yet.
I think it comes on early 07 or maybe this Nov. I think I'll check into it; I wanna know too. I love Prime Suspect-the best Mystery series, aside from Poirot.

3. Ever since they stopped showing Jeremy Brett as Sherlock...
I gave up on it. Man, I loved Brett's Sherlock. So spot on. Dude was born to play the part.

13. Rathbone's Holmes was pretty good, but I HATED Nigel Bruce's
"fat, dim-witted buffoon" interpretation of Dr. Watson. If Watson had been any of those things, Holmes would have had nothing to do with him. Watson was a fully qualified partner to Holmes: smart, brave, tough and inquisitive.

Edward Hardwicke and the other guy were both excellent Dr. Watsons.

11. I must agree,
though I've not seen a corresponding "amount" of B. Rathbone perfs.

The Jeremy Brett productions on PBS are some of my all-time favs!

27. Yay! Another Lynley fan.
I must admit that the mysteries are not all that great, but just watching Lord Asherton is enough for me.

And his chemistry with Havers is wonderful.
