"(On the subject of Edward Hardwicke replacing David Burke as Watson) Well, Edward’s a very, very remarkable man…one of the nicest people I’ve ever met in my life. And he wanted to fit in. So he watched the previous thirteen films (and) decided to try and look a little like David Burke, as much as he could, bless him. So he put on a rug, I mean a toupee, and, umm - and put lifts in his heels. And the first film we shot together was “The Abbey Grange”. And we were running across a field, and he, he…these heels were too high so he was slipping and sliding. And I said, ‘Oh, Edward, take them out! I’ll bend my knees for the rest of the film!’"

Sherlock is a journalist.
No respect for deadlines. His stories are unpublishable before Watson gets his hands on them (“you can’t just list the FACTS, Sherlock, you know that”). He can vanish for months and then turn up with either the story of the year or something incredibly detailed about a family drama leading to a petty but peculiar crime. He’s that guy who just never stops digging when he’s interested. Sometimes he works away at a story for years, just smiles when people ask him what the hell he’s been up to lately, oh, all in good time. You can’t rush a story. It takes as long as it takes.
No better investigative journalist out there, no denying it, of course he’s brilliant, I mean, the things he finds! But, well… I mean…
Heads are shaken.
It’s just, someone offers, imagine working with him. Must be hell.
No idea how Watson does it. He doesn’t even seem to mind. Is he just too nice or what?
>) Almost as high on my list as lesbian!Holmes. Oh, wait… Holmes is always a lesbian nvm. Also I feel like all the things that I like should have suffragette AU:s. I don’t know if that would work with Holmes though. *cough*
