I'm adding a new category to the labels found at the bottom of each post here at Inner Toob: "WNU-Toob". It will be for the articles and videos I find that deal with the characters shared by the Wold Newton Crossover Universe.
Yesterday we got the chance to watch the final episode of 'Maigret' from 1964, and today we have a series of videos celebrating the older brother of Sherlock Holmes, Mycroft.....
The series based on the stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (A thousand pardons! I mean by Dr. Watson and edited by Conan Doyle.) starred Jeremy Brett as the Great Detective. And he is considered to be the official portrayer of Holmes in Toobworld. This first video shows how very odd a man his brother Mycroft was.....
INTRODUCTION TO MYCROFT HOLMES
Mycroft Holmes is one of those characters who has an exact replica in at least one other universe created out of Man's imagination. Like Radar O'Reilly, and King Mongkut, and the Pigeon Sisters, this incarnation of Sherlock's brother can also be found in the movie world, sometimes known as "The Cineverse". In this particular case, it's the movie dimension in which Sherlock was played by Nichol Williamson.
Here we see Charles Gray, but this time in the movies, in his first portrayal of Mycroft Holmes. He and Doctor Watson (Robert Duvall) are confronting the so-called "Napoleon of Crime", Professor James Moriarty.
MYCROFT OF THE MOVIES
To wrap things up, here are two fan-created music videos in which Mycroft Holmes is the featured subject:
BROTHER OF MINE
HE AIN'T HEAVY, HE'S MY BROTHER
You didn't really think we'd finish off this salute to a great man in the Wold Newton Universe on a reverent note, did you.....?
