My favorite Holmes videos – volume 4

To continue where I left off before being so rudely interrupted….

Jeremy Brett is too sexy!

A video that always makes me smile, if not laugh, is this one, done to Right Said Fred’s “I’m Too Sexy”

Jeremy Brett and Rowan Atkinson

On the theme of funny videos, there’s this one that is short clips of the Granada series with Jeremy Brett doing something, and then a clip of Rowan Atkinson’s Mr. Bean character doing something similar.  When I first saw the title of this video, I thought it was both of them performing together (that would have been a hoot!).

Sherlock Holmes- Stagnation

We now go to the darker side.  This video is made by givemeanimeanyday, the same person who made the excellent “Fix You” video that I posted before.  The song is The Precipice by Mogwai.  Deals with Holmes’ darker moods and habits.

Holmes and Watson at Reichenbach Falls

A great edited video using just two episodes: The Final Problem and Empty House. I’ll quote creator lyerlyreddwarf:

“My goal was to show in real time Watson rushing back to Holmes, after he has realized he has been tricked into leaving him to battle Professor Moriarty — only to find that he is too late. I also wanted to exemplify the emotions of Holmes and Watson — Watson’s sadness at the (erroneous) realization that his friend has died, and Holmes’ difficulty at not reveling himself when he sees his companion’s distress.”

Unless you have seen both episodes, it’s hard to notice which clips are from which episode. Wonderfully done, both editing and choice of music! Song is the Violin Concerto, 2nd movement by Philip Glass. After hearing this song, I became a fan of Mr. Glass 🙂

That’s it… for the moment
