sparkleharder asked: Would the two of you like to work together again? If so, what kind of project do you think works best to highlight each of your strengths?
Watson: There have been a lot of suggestions that we ought to work together again, but honestly, we’re both very reluctant.
Holmes: It’s important that we maintain our own identities as actors. We may be a partnership offscreen, but it does not follow that we’d wish to become one onscreen.
Watson: For me, there’s a sentimental thing about it, too. Working with Sherlock on “To a Stranger” was one of the most professionally rewarding experiences of my career, and obviously it changed my life. It seems like it would make it less special if we tried to replicate that experience. Don’t you think so, Sherlock?
Holmes: Superstition isn’t the issue for me, just anxiety.
Watson: Anxiety, really? What are you anxious about?
Holmes: That if you had to be around me at work all day and then at home as well, you’d finally tire of me.
Watson: For such a brilliant man, you certainly are daft sometimes.
