You’re a bit like my dad…when he was dying he was always cheerful and always lovely, except when he thought no one could see. I saw him once, he looked – sad...You look sad, when you think he can’t see you.
When I saw this picture of Basil Rathbone as Sherlock Holmes, I thought of this right away. It is so perfect for Rathbone/Holmes and Bruce/Watson. The expression on Basil's face is just - heartbreaking. I don't think Rathbone/Holmes would have lasted long at all without his Watson, and of course, neither would Cumberbatch/Sherlock.
