Anonymous said: If you weren't actors, what would you both be doing?
Watson: When I was a kid, I always wanted to be a doctor.
Holmes: You’d make a good doctor.
Watson: What makes you think so?
Holmes: You’re a caretaker. It’s in your nature.
Watson: I know what you’d be doing. Fighting crime.
Holmes: Not necessarily. Puzzles, mysteries, challenges. That’s what draws me, and one finds those things in many places. I can’t imagine myself among those whose job it is to fight crime. I’d have to set myself up as some sort of free agent.
Watson: Well, you can’t swing a dead cat these days without hitting a show on telly about somebody solving crime with their special expertise. Perhaps we could solve crime with our acting prowess.
Holmes: How would that work?
Watson: I don’t know. Jessica Fletcher managed it, somehow.
