SH: Cuddly Russians by pedal SH: Cuddly Russians by pedal
So *HellzGranny and I have been watching the Russian series The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson. Or VATsun as Livanov seems to say it. It is the truest-to-the-books interpretation I have ever seen, and I highly recommend it. It's all over YouTube. The actors are pretty amazing as well: Vitaly Solomin as Watson and Vasily Livanov as Holmes.

I've been drawing them in my own style and interpretation, but my they've picked up some of the Russian actors' traits, like Livanov's lips and Solomin's...expressions? Just go watch, it's fantastic. And the scene on the right? It happens in the show. Seriously, they're like that for about five minutes.

Admire them. Both)) This is fantastic movie!.. Hard to explain how much i love it))
Really heartwarming friendship:hug:
One more point about Vasily Borisovich Livanov it's his voice. Hoarse but beautiful (by the way, it's also voice of many-many cartoons)


And really like your picture:heart:

About VATSN... You know, the whole childhood i considered it as only right pronunciation) Fact that he is WATSON was a big surprise=D

Try just searching "Russian Sherlock Holmes" on YouTube. It should give you plenty of chunks of episodes from the Russian series this is from. I ended up just downloading the entire series, and that was well worth it too. There's also some short video clip show of several different version of Sherlock Holmes, and this part is in that as well. I'm sorry I can't give you any more solid leads than that, but good luck and happy searching!

Oh Vatson...

I've never seen a series make something so canon in my life. It's so beautiful & the actors do wonderful renditions of Holmes & Watson. The whole series is very much so about their relationship/friendship & it's both strange and wonderful to see a Holmes that outwardly cares for Watson.

Very, very pretty! I love it! And and my fan-girl heart made a loop when you wrote that right scene was for real! Can a non Russian speaker also watch the show? And understand something?

Oh I forgot! Isn't Bones awesome! I love my icon too. A friend of mine made it for me. But I'm thinking right now I wanna switch it for some Holmes/Watson! That's my latest love. :love: But I honestly suck at icons! :XD: Well, one day... ;P

You may have gotten this response twice. In that case, sorry!

I found them and I saw the beginning of the first episode. OMG! They are the best Holmes and Watson I have ever seen! And the coolest thing is, I can almost guess what they are saying even though I can't speak a word in Russian. It's cool how the grammar and words sound a like in different language. Thank you so much for open my eyes to this show! I wouldn't have known about it otherwise.
