Wonder what the British really think of the Soviet Sherlock Holmes

The audience did not hide their opinion.

The Soviet adaptation of Arthur Conan Doyle’s novels about Sherlock Holmes first appeared on screens in the late 70s. The television movie instantly became a real hit in the USSR, but the British, as it turned out, were not delighted with the classics of Soviet cinema.

According to the audience of Foggy Albion, Vasily Livanov and Vitaly Solomin managed to show a brilliant duet. The artists were able to perfectly convey the characters of the legendary characters, but they failed to show the best duet, despite the rave reviews of Soviet viewers.

“Of course, not the best Sherlock Holmes seen on TV at different times”, “Very good, but not the best”, — netizens write.

At the same time, the British were not convinced by the honorary order of the British Empire, which the queen presented to Livanov solely for the excellent embodiment of the famous character on the screen.

As netizens are sure, there may be several reasons for this. Firstly, all episodes of the project were not broadcast on British television. Secondly, national pride, as many believe, does not allow viewers to appreciate the performance of a foreign actor.
