Holmeses through time, selected for their notoriety and contribution to the legend (with the possible exception of Howard, who is on here largely because I want to go back in time and marry him) and arranged chronologically, covering a period of over a hundred years. Now THAT’s longevity.
Kind of want this on a shirt.
EDIT: Updated to include Eille Norwood, who played Holmes in 47 silent films between 1921 and 1923, giving him the honour of Most Appearances As Holmes*. Not only that, but Sir Arthur Conan Doyle himself was enormously impressed by his work, and anyone who can impress ACD must have been pretty damn awesome. And finally, in a moment of Hilarious In Hindsight. Norwood was a stage name. His real name? Anthony Brett.
(*He is beaten to the honour of Most Adaptations only by Clive Merrison who starred with Michael Williams in the BBC radio series from 1989 to 1995 and adapted EVERY SINGLE CANON STORY. And then Bert Coules wrote some more stories AND MERRISON DID THOSE TOO.)
