Aww, how sad. The two of them will always be Holmes and Watson to me; they were both perfect.

Each was wonderful on his own, but together, they just fit, didn't they?

They did. It's rare for actors to have such a rapport with each other and their characters.

I am such a Watson fan, and he was truly my favorite. I'm sorry to hear of his passing.

Awww, he and Jeremy Brett were just perfect as Holmes and Watson. I always liked what they did, even if I didn't like the story's interpretation to screen. He will be missed. *sniff*

Awww, I grew up with both these and the Basil Rathbone/Nigel Bruce versions. Sadness.

I am very sad! I love him as Dr. Watson and as Captain Pat Grant in 'Colditz'. A very fine actor. The world is a poorer place without him :(

One of the first portrayals of Watson which didn't give the impression that he got his degree from some unaccredited diploma mill.

That is so hard to hear... He was *MY* Watson. An era has ended.

RIP, you dear man.
