"In height he was rather over six feet, and so excessively lean that he seemed to be considerably taller. His eyes were sharp and piercing, save during those intervals of torpor to which I have alluded; and his thin, hawk-like nose gave his whole expression an air of alertness and decision. His chin, too, had the prominence and squareness which mark the man of determination. His hands were invariably blotted with ink and stained with chemicals, yet he was possessed of extraordinary delicacy of touch, as I frequently had occasion to observe when I watched him manipulating his fragile philosophical instruments."
In case you haven’t heard the Granada Sherlock Holmes series is leaving Netflix Instant on Aug.1st so if you’re watching it that way you’d better hurry up and finish the series!
spooky i am not complaining about staring at jeremy brett’s perfect face all evening
Different Sherlock portrayals as cats. Because I can.
House is the uncontrollable crazy cat.
Robert Downey Jr. cat is the flaunting type.
BBC Sherlock is the brooding cat.
Elementary Sherlock is the cuddly one.
Canon Sherlock is an awesome YouTube keyboard cat that Watson is always impressed by.
So pretty much all just one cat at various points in the day.
The Empty House
The Scene that broke not only Watson’s heart.
From Bending the Willow by David Stuart Davies:
At one moment it almost seems as though he is about to respond with a cry of ‘Watson’, but then he stops himself.
‘That was deliberate. It wasn’t in the script but I just wanted to show that Holmes had affections for Watson and for a fleeting second they almost get the better of his practical mind. But they don’t. [Large Brett grin.] It is a moment.’

phew. this marks the completion of this set of cards. sorry if i missed your favourite version but, um, these are my favourites so xD
first batch ships out today, for all of yous who bought them :)
Eeeee Elementary Holmes/Watson has CLYDE. And BEES. <3
I made this graphic because some people like to complain that changing the gender/sex of the characters somehow “ruins” or “desecrates” Arthur Conan Doyle’s legacy. Funnily enough nobody ever complains when they are turned into mice, dogs, etc. (Presumably because they are still male.) As you can see there have been several female versions of these characters in the past, and they have hardly ruined anything.
Some of the oldest adaptations only had the actor info for Holmes on IMDB, so either Watson didn’t exist in those films at all, or the actor is unknown. (If he did exist it’s pretty safe to assume he was male.)
I excluded incarnations where Holmes/Watson only appeared once as guest stars in unrelated tv shows. (There were lots.)
Okay, I’m really curious about robot Watson.
Sherlock Holmes in the 22nd Century- it’s a cartoon, I youtubed it once because I was curious too! x,D Lestrade is this sexy space police girl. It was totally worth checking out for a laugh.
I really want more info on the female/female one.
…I want to see the version where they’re both vegetables…
Veggie Tales I assume? It’s the only vegetable-based media I know of.
I’m actually surprised they’ve never both been robots
