At the beginning of every Sherlock Holmes story, there are two or three pages of just Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson having a chat by the fireside.

That’s what people fell in love with. So we’ve always favored that.

As we keep proclaiming to anyone who’s not completely bored of it by now: it’s not a detective show. It’s a show about a detective.

That’s why it’s a hit. That’s why it’s exciting.
