It's one of those often quoted movie facts that the two most filmed characters in history are Dracula and Sherlock Holmes. One of the great joys for those who love these characters is watching different actors take on the roles, to see what nuance and insight can be brought out by new interpretations. Holmes has been played on stage and screen by hundreds of actors but only a few have been remembered for "being" Holmes to a large number of fans.
Sherlock Holmes is listed in the Guinness Book of Records (2004 edition) as the most filmed character in cinema history, narrowly beating Count Dracula to that accolade.
Super 12 draws crowds of avid rugby union enthusiasts from all over South Africa, Australia and New Zealand. Not even bad weather will stop them cheering on their favourite team. Can you remember what happened in 2002 ?
