Holmes/Watson from Other Adaptations

I haven't watched the Russian series, but these gifs made my day . Anybody to offer the back story for the first one?

Re: Holmes/Watson from Other Adaptations

Yes, that first one was taken from Russian adaptation of „Study in Pink“ which diverged a bit from the original. Watson was attacked by murderous cabbie in the villa where the cabbie commited his first murder and he was left unconcious on the floor. Holmes found him there and in this sequence he was gently tending to Watson′s headwound while taking him home by another cab.
Quite a Jonlocky moment it was! http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/lol.png

I have trouble with the Russian series beacause I prefer to be able to understand the dialogue...but I believe Watson has the line, "There is much that's attractive about Sherlock Holmes."


And at one point in a later episode, Watson is drawing pictures of people he is observing at a club. One of my favorite Johnlock bloggers thought he was sketching Holmes...I wasn't as sure...it could have been another gentleman who was there in front of him.

Re: Holmes/Watson from Other Adaptations

The Russian series seems really interesting of what I've seen of it so far on the internet. Haven't watched it yet, though. But it appeals to me more than 'Elementary'.
Even though I'm also tempted to finally watch at least the first series of that one. I like Lucy Liu, I'm just a bit doubtful about a female John Watson and an all American setting for Sherlock Holmes.

Re: Holmes/Watson from Other Adaptations

The Russian version was very good and I really recommend it for all SH fans who enjoy classical Sherlock Holmes adaptations.
 
Personally, I also like two film versions of SH adventures starring Ian Richardson – “The Sign of Four” and “The Hound of Baskervilles”.
 
“The Sign of Four” is on Youtube in its entirety:
 
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ez7-90Yi1ow
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jsv84Teu4u4
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pE6raeFb1mk

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YlK8ATonjCg
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N2-wpWgSOrI
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iVYSe86qvYg
 
Ian Richardson is delightful here and in his portrayal of Sherlock Holmes you can clearly recognize some elements that are also present in BBC version: SH steepling his fingers when thinking, SH being delighted when having a case (to such an extent that he is actually giggling over the dead body of a murdered man while in the presence of the deceased man´s brother) and so on. The story is in some points divergent from the canon, but mostly in a good way – the only weak moments come at the end where the authors added some silly escape of Mary Morstan from an Andamane native and an atrocious fight between Sherlock and dwarfish Tonga (who was acted by some Englishman in blackface). Watson is also a bit silly, because he was obviously based on Nigel Bruce´s Watson from Rathbone SH movies. Still, it is a very enjoyable adaptation of TSoF, both scary and funny and full of adventurous SH spirit.
 
And here is “The Hound of Baskervilles” with the same actor in the main role:
 
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LvP0RW9GVLM
 
Unfortunately, it´s only available on Youtube in Czech language. Yet THoB is a famous ACD story, so even if you do not understand that language, you can still enjoy an atmospheric quality of the movie – it is one of the scariest, most eerie adaptation of THoB, with a delightfully devilish Hugo Baskerville and his villainous offspring Stapleton. The story has some divergences from the canon but those divergences didn´t hurt the story at all (aside from one moment of very strange Sherlock´s teleportation).
 
Due to some copyright issues, Ian Richardson only starred as SH in those two movies (what a pity!) Still, he was later cast as Dr. Joseph Bell, the real life model on which a Sherlock Holmes was based, in a very good BBC TV series “Murder Rooms”.
 
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hqi7uNz23s0
 
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Murder_Rooms:_The_Dark_Beginnings_of_Sherlock_Holmes
 
Dr. Bell´s “Watson” in this TV series was Arthur Conan Doyle himself, of course, so it is doubly interesting for all Sherlockians.

"From Watson With Love" essay contains links to the Livanov/Solomin series & the Petrenko/Panin series (with English subtitles!!!!). It also exploxes the history of Russian Holmes & Watson performers. I highly recommend reading it - many good photos, links, and tons of information.

Re: Holmes/Watson from Other Adaptations

"Murder by Decree", starring Christopher Plummer, is one of the scariest, most atmospheric Sherlock Holmes movies I ever saw. It is based on the famous but unsolved Whitechapel Murders caused by the unknown criminal nicknamed "Jack The Ripper" and it incorporates true historical personages into the story. The victorian London with its ever-present fog is chillingly rendered here - the filmmakers used some places in old Quebec to successfully employ this effect. 

The only flaw of the movie is that there are almost no deductions here and so the Christopher Plummer´s Sherlock looks more like a helpless victim of the horrifiying circumstances rather than a sly detective who is always a master of a situation. But the gritty and bleak plot with its ruthless realism that lacks a true happy-end makes up for that - I have a feeling that "Jack The Ripper Affaire" really could happen in this manner.

Link to "Murder by Decree" - it has Turkish subtitles, but an original English dubbing:

Re: Holmes/Watson from Other Adaptations

Speaking of other adaptations...has anyone ever seen the animated series entitled "Sherlock Holmes In The 22nd Century" ?
I think it's a Scottish adaptation & it is surprisingly well done, with a science-fiction themed backstory that "imports" Mr. Holmes from the past paired with an android version of Dr. Watson! 
Re-stole this from an internet comment somewhere:

Re: Holmes/Watson from Other Adaptations

"Without a Clue" has to be the funniest, craziest, most hilarious Sherlockian parody ever filmed, perfectly cast with Ben Kingsley and Michael Caine.

In this movie, Dr. Watson is actually a genius and super-sleuth, yet nobody takes him serious, untill he invents a literary figure of Sherlock Holmes and hires an actor to impersonate Sherlock in real life. Hilarity ensues!

I very much reccomend this, I lauhged heartily from start to finish. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/grin.png

Re: Holmes/Watson from Other Adaptations

Sherlock raises from the dead in TEH - in Russian version.
I love Watson´s reaction - wish it was like that in BBC version too:
