The series as a whole is generally regarded as one of the most accurate attempts at depicting the original stories ever put to screen (barring certain changes in order to facilitate adaptation from print to television), and Brett's portrayal is often praised as at very least one of the best Holmes out there, if not the definitive portrayal. It is telling that the next major [[Film/SherlockHolmes feature film adaptation]] starring Creator/RobertDowneyJr decided to take a jarringly different interpretation of the character to get out of Brett's shadow.

* EvilCounterpart: Not played so strongly with Holmes and Moriarty as in other adaptations - the closest we get to this idea is when Holmes tells Watson that Moriarty will do "what I should do. Engage a special train." In fact, Granada seems almost to stress Holmes's goodness in opposition to Moriarty's wickedness, quite different from [[Series/{{Sherlock}} other]] [[Film/{{SherlockHolmes}} adaptations]].

''The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes'' was the final series, airing in 1994. At this point in time, Brett's health was massively unstable due to childhood heart problems, medication prescribed to deal with his bipolar disorder, and complications from chain-smoking his entire life. Adding to the performance difficulties (Brett could often only sustain seconds-long takes before collapsing) were scheduling crunches (the producer, June Wyndham Davies had originally wanted a year to do the series, but after ExecutiveMeddling was given scant months to scramble together scripts and productions schedules), leading to actor replacements (Edward Hardwicke, who played Watson, was unavailable for one episode, and Brett himself had to bow out for an episode, leading to the inclusion of Charles Grey as Holmes' brother Mycroft to replace both characters in two episodes).

* SceneryPorn: Not just the detail of 221B and the Baker Street set, either, though Granada is very notorious for that. There's plenty of gorgeous countryside scenery, and the Granada crew was the first to film the climatic fight between Holmes and Moriarty on location at the honest-to-goodness Reichenbach Falls in Switzerland.

For ''The Casebook of Sherlock Holmes'', after a three year break necessitated by Creator/{{Jeremy Brett}}'s health, professional difficulties and various projects, the series returned in 1991 under the oversight of the original producer, Michael Cox. Unfortunately, the number of truly strong stories left in the canon of original Holmes material had started drying up and some of the remaining strong ones needed a bust in the budget (travels to France for instance), leaving the production team an unenviable choice: stay faithful (the original mandate of the series) and pump out low quality episodes, or make quality television but deviate dramatically from the source material. They wavered between the two options during this series, resulting in an uneven six episodes. It was followed by a set of three tv movies featuring [[AdaptationExpansion expanded adaptations]] of short stories. ''The Master Blackmailer'' (adapting "The Adventure of Charles Augustus Milverton"), ''The Last Vampyre'' (adapting "The Adventure of the Sussex Vampire"), and ''The Eligible Bachelor'' (mostly adapting "The adventure of the Noble Bachelor").

* FourEyesZeroSoul: Wilson Kemp, once more. He is perhaps the creepiest villain in the entire series, what with his [[SlasherSmile constant grin]], [[GigglingVillain wicked snicker]], [[SuddenlyShouting sudden]] [[MoodSwinger outbursts of rage]], and a vocal delivery that has hints of PeterLorre.
