"What is it tonight? Morphine? Or cocaine?"
―John Watson to Sherlock Holmes

John Watson (Granada) refers to the on-screen incarnation of John Watson in the ITV Granada Adaptation. Unusually for a series, this incarnation was originally played by David Burke in the first Adventures series and then he was replaced by Edward Hardwicke, who played Watson for the remainder of the run.

This version of John Watson is the companion of the series take on Sherlock Holmes as portrayed by English actor Jeremy Brett. Watson in this version is good-hearted but often quite stuffy and even occasionally pompous.
