* The [[TheEighties 1979-1986]] [[SovietRussiaUkraineAndSoOn Soviet]] series of TV movies ''Series/TheAdventuresOfSherlockHolmesAndDoctorWatson'' -- no relationship to the above. A Russian-language series notable for ''not'' [[{{Flanderization}} flanderizing]] Watson into an idiot, being a generally faithful AdaptationDistillation and for the fact that the actor playing Holmes got an Order of the British Empire for his portrayal (surprising for a Soviet citizen). It's also provided fodder for a lot of [[RussianHumor Russian jokes]] (but then again, what doesn't?)

* ''VideoGame/FateGrandOrder'' is an unusual example - while he's not ''the'' focus character, he is introduced as a major character in the game's sixth story chapter and joins the main cast, regardless of the player's status in obtaining him as a playable "Servant" party member, in the course of the ''Epic of Remnant'' expansion. [[spoiler:James Moriarty makes a similar debut in the first ''[=EoR=]'' chapter and makes further appearances later on.]]

A final note: As one of the oldest continuous franchises in existence (There have been over 230 versions of Holmes in Film, Television, Stage, and Radio), it stands to reason that it also has a ''very'' extensive fandom. For many {{Fanfic Trope|s}} and {{Audience Reaction|s}} it happened in the Sherlock Holmes fandom first.

* ''Film/TheBakerStreetDozen'' - The Universal movies starring Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce

* ''Film/TheBakerStreetDozen'' - The Universal movies starring Basil Rathbone Creator/BasilRathbone and Nigel Bruce



* Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce starred as Holmes and Watson in a popular series of film adaptations in the 1930s and 1940s. The first two ("The Hound of the Baskervilles" and "The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes") were produced by TwentiethCenturyFox and were based on, respectively, the Doyle novel and the William Gillette play; both were set in the Victorian era. The others, produced by Creator/{{Universal}}, moved the setting to the 1940s. Initially, Holmes and Watson fought ThoseWackyNazis, but they later went up against more conventional crooks. Bruce's portrayal of Watson as a bumbling incompetent rather than the original ladykilling man of action helped begin a long chain of similar adaptations.

* ''Literature/BasilOfBakerStreet'', later adapted by Creator/{{Disney}} as ''Disney/TheGreatMouseDetective''. A FunnyAnimal version of the mythos, and many a child's first exposure to Sherlock Holmes. Basil's name is an obvious ShoutOut to Basil Rathbone. In the film, Rathbone himself even has a vocal cameo (albeit one well after his death) as Holmes himself.

* 2003 saw an adaptation of ''The Hound of the Baskervilles'' which played up Holmes's addiction. It featured Richard Roxbourgh (the Duke in ''MoulinRouge'') as Holmes and Ian Hart (Professor Quirrell in the ''Film/HarryPotter'' first film) as Watson, and introduced several changes to the story: Dr. Mortimer was much OlderAndWiser than in the book, his wife is a believer in the supernatural and holds a party that is ''very'' important to the plot, Selden becomes an AscendedExtra, and [[spoiler: Beryl Stapleton is murdered by her husband Roger aka the BigBad.]]
