Do modern depictions of Sherlock Holmes dilute his character and diminish his classic legacy?

  • Sherlock Holmes dilute

    Make him brilliant I think that modern depictions of Holmes do make him look good, and make his legacy even stronger. The modern depictions show a man that is very confident in his abilities, and show a man that is extremely smart, and is always a step ahead of everyone else at solving crimes.

    No, modern depictions of Sherlock Holmes does not dilute his character and diminish his classic legacy. It has the opposite affect of immortalizing Sherlock Holmes as a person with amazing abilities. More people know about him today because of the modern depictions of him which leads them to gain a better understanding of who he was in the past.

  • No, modern depictions of Sherlock Holmes do not dilute his character or diminish his legacy

    Modern depictions of Sherlock Holmes are carrying on his legacy and introducing him to younger sets of fans by putting him in relatable situations in the current world. For instance, in "Sherlock" the PBS series starring Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock Holmes, the classic stories are updated with a modern twist, and Sherlock and John Watson rely on modern technology to solve cases. Sherlock's character and legacy are far from diluted or diminished in this modern variation.

  • Movies Don't Replace Books

    For anyone that has read a book cover to cover and then went on to watch a movie made on the subject matter, they will honestly tell you that it is impossible to replace books with another form of media. While Sherlock Holmes has been featured on TV and films, I do not believe this dilutes the character nor does it diminish his classic legacy. If anything it brings a shadow of the character out to the general public that may have never picked up the books.
