Sherlock Holmes (BBC)
BBC’s Sherlock transports the eponymous detective from his Victorian-era home to the 21st century. While that may mean he's solving crime with the assistance of modern technology and sending messages via text instead of telegram, his vast intelligence, deductive reasoning and gentleman’s dress sense all remain intact.

Mycroft, Sherlock’s older and possibly smarter brother, prefers observation to action. He humbly insists he occupies but a minor role in Her Majesty’s government (if by ‘minor,’ you mean ‘occasionally IS Her Majesty’s government’), however, he gets tetchy when asked how his diet’s going (it’s going fine, thank you).July 2, 2013 by Kristina

Despite his somewhat disheveled look, Albert Einstein is one of the most brilliant minds of the 20th century. He won the Nobel Prize in Physics for his contribution to theoretical physics. Even most people can recite his famous equation, E=mc2 (though trying to explain it might be another story).March 27, 2013 by Amanda
What can you say about the Doctor that hasn’t already been said over his show’s fifty-year history? He’s nine hundred years old, he’s an alien and he travels through time and space in a 1963 blue police call box. Also, sometimes he looks like Christopher Eccleston and that’s pretty fantastic.
