Jeremy Brett and Edward Hardwicke.

Jeremy Brett (3 November 1933 – 12 September 1995), born Peter Jeremy William Huggins, was an English actor famous for his portrayal of the detective Sherlock Holmes in three British television series The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, The Return of Sherlock Holmes, and The Casebook of Sherlock Holmes.


David Burke suggested Hardwicke as his successor in the role of the Dr Watson in the Granada Television adaptations of the Sherlock Holmes stories, The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, alongside Jeremy Brett. Hardwicke played the role for eight years from 1986 to 1994 as a very calm and attentive Watson and became permanently associated with it, also playing it on the West End stage with Brett in The Secret of Sherlock Holmes in 1989.
