give me problems. give me work.
Ok, I have to say this.
I love John. I always have. He’s the kind of guy that puts up with weird flatmates because they’re brilliant, stands up for people he cares about, isn’t afraid to yell at shit that annoys him, likes jumpers, is gorgeous as all hell, carries an illegal firearm, probably would buy a crying kid a balloon, shoots not-very-nice people that deserve it, tells Sherlock to stop being a unfeeling bastard, is (possibly) unabashedly bisexual with experience across three continents, is probably a very attentive lover but will pin your wrists down during sex and you’ll like it, loves queen and country, is an awesome doctor and is generally a really badass motherfucker.
In short, I fucking love you, John Watson.
ngl I think Johns the much cooler character of the show
oh yeah i did art
Oh aren’t we all..

lol Radio Times clearly got Richard Brook to write this. This is what he really said:
Q – What’s it like to work with Andrew Scott?
He’s brilliant. He’s another person that when he was cast it was music to my ears. I was familiar with his stage work and I just knew they’d got someone brilliant for something that was a very big ask and he was just amazing. I knew it was another actor on set who would just raise my game. It would be nothing without that anmity between Homes and Moriarty so its very sad that he put a gun in his mouth and blew his head off! But he’s brilliant and I adore him and he’s just a joy to work with and he’s so supportive. He’s just a wonderful human being. [x]

There are some fascinating books here. Johnlock writers take note of The Children’s Encyclopedia by Arthur Mee (child!Sherlock- it’s canon!) There are several drug books, one on suicide prevention, Jane Austen & Thomas Hardy novels (!). There’s a whole fic to be written about Sherlock & The Courage to Be.

Mofatiss you clever hound! Trillsabells (x) is absolutely right. It’s not visible in other episodes (which is why I wasn’t sure about it in Part II), but in The Blind Banker, Sherlock definitely has a copy of a fictional scientific study by Lavinia Smith, the fictional aunty of the fictional Sarah Jane Smith, the mistress of K-9 and the steadfast companion of the very real Doctor Who.
Well damn, thank you
