A while back I bought the complete DVD set of the Jeremy Brett Sherlock Holmes mysteries. Last night I watched The Bruce-Partington Plans. At one point, Holmes wants to spread out a large map on the table, but long-suffering Mrs. Hudson is clearing away the dishes. With a wry smile, Holmes says, "Mrs. Hudson, you are hideously in the way." It's pure Brett Sherlock. If it sounds like I'm recommending a 12-DVD set based on one line, I kinda am. :-)

"Scandal" may be my favorite one. Gayle Hunnicutt is gorgeous and the perfect Irene Adler, Brett's portrayal of the ill parson is brilliant, and, of course, I'm kind of partial to the whole Holmes got beaten by a woman angle. Good stuff!
