    Default Type the Sherlock Holmes characters: specify which versions

    Yeah, I know there are a bunch of Holmes threads already but they mostly seem specifically related to the RDJ version, or Doyle's original, etc.

    I'd just like to create a general thread for typing Holmes and his associated characters, in whatever versions you like, but please specify which versions you mean. (ie. Doyle; new BBC Sherlock; Jeremy Brett; RDJ; etc)

    General Sherlock Holmes discussion and appreciation would be great too For the record, Jeremy Brett is my favourite Holmes along with his Watsons Edward Hardwicke and David Burke - a traditional Victorian version, mostly very faithful to the originals. My second favourite is the current modern version with Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman.

    Here are a few of mine (tentative, as my typings usually are):


    Original Conan Doyle stories

    Holmes: INTJ
    Watson: ISFJ
    Mycroft: INTP
    Moriarty: INTP
    Mrs Hudson: ISFJ
    Lestrade: ISTJ


    Granada series starring Jeremy Brett, from 80s and 90s

    Holmes (Jeremy Brett): ENTP
    Watson: ISFJ (there were two Watsons, David Burke and Edward Hardwicke. I'd say Hardwicke was definitely ISFJ, David Burke could have been ISFP or ESFP)
    Moriarty (Eric Porter): INTJ
    Mycroft: INTP
    Mrs Hudson: ISFJ
    Lestrade (Colin Jeavons): ISTJ


    New BBC Sherlock - modern-day

    Sherlock (Benedict Cumberbatch): ISTP
    John Watson (Martin Freeman): ISxJ
    Mycroft (Mark Gatiss): INTJ
    Mrs Hudson: ESFJ
    Lestrade (Rupert Graves): ESTJ
    Moriarty: ENTP
    Molly: INFJ


    40s movies with Basil Rathbone

    Holmes (Rathbone): ISTJ
    Watson (Nigel Bruce): ESFP


    New films with Robert Downey Junior

    Holmes (RDJ): ESTP
    Watson (Jude Law): ISTP

    (I only saw the first of these films so far and it was a while ago so I'd need a refresher...)

    Holmes is either ISTP, INTP, or INTJ, since those types excell at detailed analysis and investigation.

    5w6 I can see; why so-first?

    I'm interested in hearing opinions about different versions (original stories, and adaptations) because they differ pretty widely... I mean, there is a huge difference between Robert Downey Jr's version and Benedict Cumberbatch, or Jeremy Brett and Basil Rathbone.

    Plus, opinions on the secondary characters are welcome!

    Sigh...I think this is just proof that I'm still way more obsessed with Sherlock Holmes than pretty much anyone I know.

    I've seen some of the Basil Rathbone movies. Okay, the first movie and part of the second. He's easy to type imo, ISTJ 6w5 sp/sx
