Actually my favorite Holmes is Vasiliy Livanov ( http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0079902/ , http://kinoros.ru/db/movies/278/index.html ), however I can't imagine his portrayal of Holmes being translated back to English -- one of the most remarkable things about his series was translation to Russian that clearly had the atmosphere of the original.

That's interesting and, no, I hadn't heard of Livanov. I'd really like to see it translated. I noticed that the review of the 2 part film(?) mentions that there's a poor quality translation of it to English, but it'd be nice to see one that has a decent translation.

I'm sure things would still be lost, but if the quality of the current translation is so poor, I'm sure someone could do a better job.
