"Mr. Holmes was extraordinary ... His deductive skills were demonstrated in truly Masterful ways. ... The philosophy inherent in his dialogue was profound. ... The evening was a smashing success!" ~ Arthur Renkwitz, member, Baker Street Irregulars, New York City
"For more than two hours none other than the real, living Sherlock Holmes enthralled the audience ... his dress and physical actions were realistic to the core." ~ P. Stephen Clarkson, member, Baker Street Irregulars, New York City
"Sherwood becomes Holmes in every detail and nuance. He bests the best of Brett and Rathbone." ~ Linda Crane, member, Adventresses of Sherlock Holmes, New York City
"Sherwood's Holmes brought us all back to 1895. You could almost hear the hansom cabs outside on the street." ~ Andrew Solberg, member, Baker Street Irregulars, New York City
"Indeed, he was Holmes to the life. ... It was odd for a few moments, and then quite familiar somehow, making small talk with Sherlock Holmes himself." ~ Chris Redmond, member, Baker Street Irregulars, New York City
"John Sherwood is the most realistic, believable and true portrayer of Sherlock Holmes whom I have ever seen and/or heard. ... Were Sherlock Holmes real, John Sherwood is what he would be." ~ Norman Davis, member, Baker Street Irregulars, New York City
N.B.: Mr. Sherwood's has performed professionally as Sherlock Holmes more than any other living actor. Since 1987, he has given more time to the role than the late Basil Rathbone and the late Jeremy Brett combined.
