One who is in love with British murder mysteries simply can't live a life without watching at least a few episodes of The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. While younger audiences might have had their first encounter with the famous detective in Sherlock, also featured on this list, this s adaptation shouldn't be skipped. It places Holmes and Dr. Watson in the time period they were created in.
