It’s official: Sherlock Holmes, Britain’s favorite TV detective, according to a newcomer Radiotimes.com A poll that attracted thousands of votes.
As ITV prepares to launch a new program dedicated to the best information on our screens, we have compiled a list of the top ten TV identifiers and ask our readers to choose the ones they like.
A total of 5,000 people voted in the election, and the result is clear: the Sherlock Holmes quake, Britain’s favorite spy, snatched more than 50 percent of the vote.
Created by the nove panacea Arthur Conan Doyle in 188787, the character’s continued popularity is quite noticeable, having recently seen a revision in BBC One’s Sherlock under the pen of Steven Moffat and Mark Gatis.
Led by Benedict Cumberbatch, Martin Freeman and trusted associates John Watson and Flybug’s Andrew Scott played the bitter role of Moriarty.
Sherlock aired his fourth season in 2017, but it’s still unclear whether the series will return for another release, despite many fans demanding a return.
Another icon of British literature occupied a distant second place, which was Hercules Pilot by Agatha Christie, the most famous on the small screen of actor David Suchet for 14 years.
The character will return to the release later this year during the film Death on Death on Blue, which is the second time Kenneth Branagh has portrayed Poyrot.
Far behind in third place, we have 12 ACs from the Line of Duty, comprising DS Steve Arnott (Martin Compston), DI KK Fleming (Vicky McClure) and Inspector Ted Hastings (Adrian Dunbar).
Bad drama about corruption in the police force is one of the biggest television shows, with nearly 13 million viewers in its most recent season.
Tom Bernabei and Colombo of Midsomer Murders (John Netlets) finished fifth in our fourth place with the top five goals, which is particularly impressive, as it has not aired a new episode in 17 years.
