They include the legendary Basil Rathbones other Watsons Jack Raine and Marytn Green .
We all know in the 14 films and many radio productions Nigel Bruce
played the good doctor.
But in 1953 Basil Rathbone took to the stage as the great detective once again in a play written by his wife. Sadly Nigel Bruce was too ill to play Watson so Jack Raine took the role for the plays very short lived run.
But this was not the only time Basil would return to Baker Street for he continued to appear as Holmes through television sketch shows and even a series of commercial for Exterminators in the 1960's. Martyn Green was his Watson for some of these television ventures.
This makes Basil Rathbone rather uniquely the only Holmes to have crossed Television,Film,Radio AND Stage .
