I actually first encountered Tabori in the BBC version of The Hound of the Baskervilles with Jeremy Brett, an excellent version that I highly recommend.
|Sir Henry praising Holmes' deductive|
In mystery shows, Tabori shows up as either the victim or the murderer. It doesn't matter much since he acts exactly the same both ways. I don't hold this against him--eh, so the guy doesn't have range. Who cares?! He acts well. He can give even a skanky villain a soft, sympathetic quality.
And no matter what he is saying, it just sounds so nice.
