    I would put Jonny Lee Miller as number 2 and push Cumberbatch out. The early Cumberbatch stores were good but it's been a soap opera for a long time, wasted opportunity. The Elementary Series is excellent, Lucy Lui should be on the list of great Watsons.

      Nigel Stock's Watson deserves a mention.

        Nigel Stock was one of the best. As well as being the worst Holmes ever Patrick Macnee was arguably the worst Watson too. Quite an achievement!
        I do like Elementary and have the first 4 series. They've played Holmes and Watson way more than any other pairing. Haven't gotten around to watching the fourth though yet.
        I'm still trying to find a few things that I have got on my collection though.
        Off to Portsmouth tomorrow to see Richard Lancelyn Green's Holmes/Doyle collection.

            Hopefully only his own!

              Six, apparently. And one husband.

                Watson only wanted Mrs Hudson for her kippers.

                  Actually, I've managed to get my hands on an unfinished Holmes story :


                  It was on a cold and foggy morning in 19 - that I noticed a distinct absence of kippers at the breakfast table. I rang the bell, but still my wife did not appear. Just then, there was a knock on the door :


                  "Telegram for Dr Watson."


                  I opened the message, which I read with astonished eyes :


                  "The game is up. Mrs Hudson/Watson has told all. Fly for your life. Holmes."


                  I dropped, or rather collapsed, into an armchair. How had the old bat found out about my affair with Miss Gloria Scott? And had she really informed the police of my long history of bigamy?




                  I'm afraid that's all I have of the story.

                      Didn't Mrs. Hudson have the hots for Holmes?

                          Only when he wasn't shooting holes in her walls.

                            In "The Dying Detective" she says to Watson "You know how masterful he can be."

                              Three in a bed? Or perhaps six, if you count the kippers?
