Sir Arthur Conan Doyle first introduced Sherlock Holmes to the world in his 1887 novel A Study in Scarlet. Since then, the London-based detective best known for his logic, use of disguises, and overall ability to solve just about anything has been portrayed on screens both big and small. From Basil Rathbone’s 1930’s version of the character, featuring his signature pipe, to Benedict Cumberbatch’s recent adaptation, every Sherlock has a little something different to offer its audience.

Many actors have taken on the role, but we’ve narrowed it down to four. Which Sherlock do you prefer? Vote below!
