This writing is the second part of the article called In remembrance of Jeremy Brett. Though the actor passed away in 1995, it is rejoicing that he has so many fans. The adventures of his Sherlock Holmes gave and still give hope, salve or simply entertain lots of people. Hopefully we can pique the interest of the younger generations as well. In part 1 you could read the opinion of actors and other artists. (Part 1: In remembrance of Jeremy Brett ). Now we would like to show several examples of how Brett’s memory is treasured around the world (but just a taste of it, of course).

Jeremy’s outstanding performance had never been acknowledged by a BAFTA award. His fellow actors and fans started a campaign to reward his talent posthumously. Their request was rejected with the reason that BAFTA rules do not allow posthumous rewarding.
