Louise: Right where do I start? Molly loves him. That doesn’t make her an idiot we’re all fools for love. Mrs Hudson is Una Stubbs and she’s untouchable.
Benedict: If there is sexism then yes Sherlock can be sexist but he can also be a bigot on any front. He can be intolerant of anything it’s not so much what your sexual identity is as your behaviour and he’s intolerant to kindness, goodness, he’s intolerant to loyalty where he doesn’t necessarily see it. And as for Irene Adler? Well you say he was beaten by her but do you know what they got up to in Islamabad because I do. There was no beating. It was all very loving.
I don’t know which one I love more!
I won’t discuss Parade’s End further, it would be unfair. So not the target audience, me.
