I'm guessing this is which actor?
BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH OMGOSH<3
I find him raaather attractive ;D Haha!
Seriously though, he's an awesome actor and I just love the portrayal I think I just prefer the series as well.
Like, the film Sherlock is quite sexualised (kinda) when we're specifically told that (apart from Irene Adler) Sherlock has NO relationships like this, rather he's closed off and cold.

BUT, for sake of curiosity who is your favourite Holmes? And any particular reasons why?
I'd say Benedict Cumberbatch or Jeremy Brett, because I think their portrayals of Holmes are the closest to the book. Robert Downey Jnr is a good Holmes, but I think the film itself is to 'Hollywood' and glamorised to make him one of the best.
The canon!Holmes (as portrayed by Sidney Paget and written by C. Doyle). I am rather original; even when I do too like Brett, and am obsessive when coming to the BBC adaptation (big fan of the writers, not much as actors).
Robert D. Jr. Is a bore, but he still is a good actor, and as Holmes adaptations ago this one was a fair shot- but not revolutionary- its only loud because of Hollywood branding.
Silly thing- no one mentioned Basil Rathbone! He's classic.
