He’s the most fascinating presence on television: he’s a mercurial man with an otherworldly aura, a fiery turn of wit and an answer for everything. He’s so many people’s hero, and so many are in love with him. But my god, can Sherlock Holmes be a total ass sometimes.

When Sherlock claimed that he just because he was on the side of the angels, it didn’t mean he was a nice bloke, he wasn’t joking; Sherlock’s a liar and a manipulator, and that’s just to the people he calls friends. A lot of the time, John’s only part of the case to apologise for his friend; Sherlock doesn’t exactly make himself likeable, does he?

Nobody’s saying he’s an insufferable character, though. We love Sherlock: he’s a great man. But he’s certainly not a good one. »
