Are John Watson and Sherlock Holmes Gays?
Have you seen the BBC Sherlock Holmes series? I have watched few episodes on Netflix and I must say I love it. Although I don't like how Sherlock's abilities are exaggerated. But all that aside, what matters to me is how the series hints that there is a relationship between Sherlock Holmes and John Watson (the military doctor) that is more than just friendship. Although none of them would admit it explicitly, they do seem to have feelings for each other. For example, when Sherlock faked his death and disappeared for two years, he decided to appear again only when John was about to propose to his girlfriend.
I am not sure if Sherlock or his assistant were gays in the original story, or in any of the previous Sherlock movies. So why add this now?
What do you think?
