Well, I think he's sooo passive I still wonder what his role is in the story except that of the narrator.

And how come Sherlock is soooooo single!?

Does anybody think there's something going on between those two? :lol:

lol you're not suggesting our Sherlock's gay, are you? shame on you Dixie! Sir Arthur Conan Doyle would be appalled to hear that lol but speaking of Dr. Watson. Yeah, he is passive but I guess that's how he must be as it's Holmes who has to do all the job. ;)

Dr.Watson is a very loyal friend, he helped Holmes in many cases, maybe he isn't intelligent but he can enlighten Holmes and protect holmes with his best effort
And about watson's wife, she died, didn't she

I find the relationship between Holmes and Watson absolutely fascinating. If you read all the books (and, this time, you should!) in chronological order, you'll see how their acquaintance developed into a lasting friendship. The frienship between these two men is the other "story" Conan Doyle wrote about in all Sherlock Holmes' books. So I guess Watson is not that "passive" character...
