Game of Cards Challenge 104: Rec It!

Sherlock Holmes (Granada 1984 - 1994)

Hello, I'd like to take this opportunity to rec what I believe maybe the best version of Sherlock Holmes to grace the screen, big and small. Back when I was searching for a way to pass the time until the 3rd season of the BBC's Sherlock, I began searching online for a recommendation for another version of Sherlock Holmes that I may like and every I went it seemed like everyone was singing the praises of the late Jeremy Brett , many calling him, and rightfully so I might add, the very embodiment of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's famous detective.

After I had thoroughly angsted myself out on every post Reichenbach fanfic I could find, I added the Granada series at the top of my Netlfix queue, and once I got the first DVD, that as they say was history. I was utterly spellbound from the first moment I saw Jeremy Brett's Holmes on screen and by the time I made my way through the first half of the series he had forever claimed my heart!

I won't go on and on singing Brett's praises, although I could because the man was just utterly mindblowing ... instead I shall recommend to you what I believe are the top five episodes of the Granada series where Jeremy Brett and depending on the season, David Burke/Edward Hardwicke were at their finest!

Number 1 for me will always will be The Six Napoleons because this episode's mystery is fascinating but more so because of the acting performances of Jeremy Brett, Edward Hardwicke, and Colin Jeavons, the latter playing Inspector Lestrade. I came to adore Granada's Lestrade, and at the end of this episode Brett does some of the finest acting I have ever seen from any actor before or since!

Number 2 for me is The Speckled Band as this is one of my go episodes when I want a gripping mystery but even more so because it is just a joy to watch Jeremy Brett in this episode as his Holmes pieces together what really happened to Julia Stone!

Number 3 for me is The Norwood Builder, which is another go to episode for me as again Brett was a joy to watch, and this was the first mystery I figured out before the end of the episode and was completely right. It also marks the only appearance of Colin Jeavons as Lestrade during David Burke's turn as Watson, and mores the pity as the dear Inspector got on my nerves so much in this one!

Number 4 for me is The Devil's Foot, because it shows that although Holmes was supposed to be on holiday, he just couldn't resist a puzzling mystery. The ending of this one I must confess bothered me quite a lot!

Last but not least at Number 5 is The Second Stain because once more the mystery is gripping but it's even more so I loved the rapport between Holmes and Watson while they're trying to recover a letter than could mean widespread war if it falls into the wrong hands! Colin Jeavons make another appearance as Inspector Lestrade, rounding out my joy at this episode!

Made Higher and Holier (Prompt: Together)

Spoilers: Through Episode 5 of Downton Abbey Season 4 | Word Count: 296 | Note: This story was written before I had the chance to see Episode 5 so there are no spoilers for it! Also this isn't likely this fics final form as I do want to continue it but I am posting it as it is to beat a challenge deadline!

On the first night after Anna's return to the cottage from the main house, John had wanted to talk awhile but she had been far too exhausted, and so they had gone straight to bed. Anna had fallen asleep almost from the moment her head hit the pillow and for awhile he had stayed awake, watching her sleep and thanking God she was by his side once more.

It hurt and angered him that his beautiful Anna believed herself to be spoiled and no longer worthy of him or being loved by him. If anyone was unworthy, John knew it was him. He was the one who was spoiled because he hadn't been there to stop Green from brutally violating his wife, and he had been the one to fail her. Yes, he had failed her because he had seen how Lord Gillingham's valet was looking at Anna.

He had known what he had seen in the other man's eyes was lust but even knowing what he saw, yet he had still elected to stay at a bloody concert he really didn't care about and let Anna go alone to a part of the house that he knew was empty. But the reason why he had stayed instead of going with her was the part that shamed John Bates the most, and it was shame he'd carry with him the rest of is life. He had stayed not because Anna insisted that he do so, but because he had found that he was still a little irritated with her for her behavior from earlier that evening.

It was about an hour after he had finally fallen into a restless sleep that John was awakened by his wife crying and calling his name out in her sleep.

So Alone Now (Prompt: Alone)

Spoilers: Through Episode 3 of Downton Abbey Season 4 | Word Count: 108
Next to the loss of her only child, Isobel found the loneliness that came from now being almost completely was alone in the world was the worst part of Matthew's death. And even the blessing of little George did not help to ease these feelings because Lady Mary was his mother, and not her. Oh Lady Mary, along with Lord and Lady Grantham, had all made it clear that Isobel was welcome to visit her grandson anytime that she wished. Although she sensed they all meant what they had said, it wasn't an invitation she often took advantage of.



So Isobel continued to be adrift in her grief and loneliness.

The Light of Morning 2/2 (Prompt: White)

Note: Read the fill for prompt BLACK first! Spoilers: Christmas At Downton through towards the end of Season 3 | Word Count: 71
If hearing her John be sentenced to hang was the blackest moment of her life up until that moment, then hearing that he had received a reprieve from the death sentence was the greyness of predawn. The white glory of dawn was something Anna would not know again until the moment she saw him walking out of the prison's gate towards freedom and back to the home of her waiting arms.

Black as Night 1/2 (Prompt: Black)

Spoilers: Through Season 2 episode Christmas At Downton | Word Count: 54

For Anna, the blackest moment of her life up to that point came at the moment she heard the jury foreman announce a guilty. The verdict however was nothing in comparison of hearing the judge sentence her husband to death for the act of cold blooded murder she knew he was incapable of committing.
