Top 5 Tuesday: Top 5 TV Detectives

Kate of the Suddenly Kate Show is hosting Top 5 Tuesdays again and I'm going to try and remember to post each week. I can't believe this is my first post this year! Things were a little crazy at work, and then I came down with another difficult cold that left me with at least one completely sleepless night, so I have been a little occupied. :) Today I'm a fair bit better, so let's try and get back to blogging!


1. Batman

Some of you may argue he's a superhero, but he technically has no super powers, and his comics are or have been called Detective comics, therefore he's  detective! :) My favourite Batman of all time has been the Batman: The Animated Series version. Here's a best-moments video:

2. Sherlock

There have been tons of Sherlocks on TV, and although my ultimate favourite had been Jeremy Brett, I am very fond of Benedict Cumberbatch's version. Johnny Lee Miller in Elementary is worth watching too though. Here's a clip of Jeremy Brett as I think you've all seen or heard of the other two shows. :)

Best quotes from Jeremy Brett:

3. Miss Marple

I used to watch this show whenever I had a chance. Joan Hickson seemed born to this role as Jeremy Brett was born to Sherlock and David Suchet to Hercule Poirot. I'm not as fond of the newer Miss Marple, but the old black and white ones with Margaret Rutherford are a good watch as well. 

4. Bones/Agent Booth

From the show Bones, Emily Deschanel as Dr. Temperance "Bones" Brennan and David Boreanaz as Agent Seeley Booth. They make a fun team and I love watching this show. It's always fun to see if I guess right at who-dun-it. :) 

A little blurb about the final season (12) that started last week:

5. Columbo

This was a tough choice between Poirot and Columbo, and 2 such very different personalities too. But since Kate covered Poirot, I'm going to go with Columbo. Peter Falk was a fantastic choice for this role, and since no one has yet remade it, clearly no one else thinks it can be anyone else's role either. ;) One of my favourite parts is how he adopts a basset hound, <3

I hope you've all had a good New Year's and I'll try and get a stitching post up soon as well. 

Happy Stitching!



  1. Yay! Great post and it's good to have you back. I'm glad you are feeling get stitching 😂

  2. So Happy you are feeling better, I love the Artful Detective Miss Marple and many others.


  3. Glad you are feeling a bit better, but hopefully you will feel a lot better soon!

    Great list BTW and, as far as the Batman choice goes, I think detectives can be subjective...hell, I picked Lucifer!

  4. Fun post Tiffany. Looking forward to seeing them every week.


  5. Good choices, especially Jeremy Brett's Sherlock and Miss Marple. Columbo drove me crazy - probably a testament to Peter Falk's acting. After about 1/2 an hour I just wanted to reach through the TV and slap him.

  6. Love your detective post, I remembered watching Columbo with dad, we loved his Peugeot 403 car! Great fan of Agatha Christie, my favorite Miss Marple is G.mEwan, I have watched and watched the series (use it like medecine ;) and always love to see details (clothes, furniture, flowers, dishes...). She and Mr Poirot came as guests on my blog in March/May 2015 lol ! Amitiés.

  7. I absolutely love detective shows! Remember McCloud and McMillan and Wife (circa Colombo and Murder She Wrote)? Love them!

  8. Sorry you aren't feeling well. My mother is sick too. Sure a lot going around. Love your post. I love the show Bones. Can't believe it's the last season.

  9. Hope you are soon feeling much better.

  10. Yes, Batman is a detective!! I dislike it enormously when people "superhero" to characters that have no super powers! I have never seen those Miss Marples...I need to track them down, since she is one of my favorite characters in print.

  11. What a fun post! I have to admit that Bones is the only one of those shows that I really watched beyond just zapping through (I did watch Elementary and BC's Sherlock, but not the version you mentioned). I didn't know they were on the last season now! I hope it's a good one.
