Jeremy Brett

One of the outstanding people I worked with was the extremely talented Jeremy Brett.

I always felt he deserved far more recognition that he received.  I first saw him in Hamlet, when I was still a schoolgirl and adored him from then on.  Working with him in the Champions was one of the highlight of the series for me.  He was, of course, the definitive Sherlock Holmes!

Alan Bell has set up an online petition to request BAFTA to give Jeremy a posthumous award – something I wholeheartedly support.  You can sign the petition at Jeremy Brett BAFTA petition.
