As much as I love the beautiful mess that Sherlock and John are on Sherlock, I would love a modern adaptation where the characters are true to the Canon, just in a modern setting.
Holmes would be a giant nerd with band and movie posters on his wall, who reads Twilight and Harry Potter. Heads the Drama Club, but only because it gives him access to the makeup and costume departments. Doesn’t have many close friends, but everyone is baffled that he managed to land the smoking hot captain of the rugby team.

This is 100% all that I need in my life.

I have IDEAS about how a Study in Scarlet should have been modernized.

I will literally PAY YOU to write a series of modern adaptations that closely adheres to the canon stories instead of just being ‘inspired by’ them. IN BLOOD. Or the tears of my firstborn. Or candy :)

HEY VIOLET

If you ever think you’re getting too heated about your fandom, just remember that Jeremy Brett flipped a table in defense of the Sherlock Holmes Canon.

❝ Jeremy Brett was a very big, famous actor in England who played Sherlock Holmes in many shows in the 1980s and 1990s, and he was an eccentric, grand old-school actor and a very charming man. I was going to do this show ‘Coasting’ as a co-lead and knew nothing about cameras or films. In those days, it took 30 days to shoot an hour of television, which beggars belief today. So I was only on his show for six days as a guest and asked him for tips. And he said, ‘My dear boy, I will have you called for every day of the shoot,’ and he did, and I sat on set and he took me through all of it, how to hit your mark, how to walk down a dolly track without looking at it. It was a very concentrated course in film acting. ❞

Mads Mikkelsen ("Mads Mikkelsen, other TV talent talk about Day One of their first jobs"), when describing being a guest star on "The Case-Book of Sherlock Holmes" in 1991. (via bendingthewillow)

hey guys, James Purefoy said this particular quote. in the article, they list several people and their first acting jobs, and it was Purefoy who had his first job with the Granada series.
