Sorry but I'd have to say opium addict Holmes too.

In fact, isn't he the only British detective?

Yeah, Brett as Holmes is the only telly 'tec I ever actually watch.
Why retro? Because you never forget your first love.

Watson, have you noticed how there seem to be a lot of options suggested by people posting in this thread that should have been considered by the person who put up the poll? An elementary mistake, wouldn't you agree?

Holmes, put down that opium pipe and come back to bed.

I picked Poirot as it is excellent, but even so I'd prefer to vote for Barnaby.
