The creator of BBC TV series Sherlock has been inundated with fan mail urging him to make the detective and Dr Watson gay lovers. Mark Gatiss admitted he had been overwhelmed with explicit drawings and plotline ideas ahead of the new series starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, due late next year. It follows a running joke in the show which hints the pair might be closer than friends, especially by landlady Mrs Hudson, played by Una Stubbs, 77, who often makes references to their sexuality.

Its all they have. Sad and sick that they are they feel the need to push acceptance on everyone because they know deep down that what they are doing in wrong.
Gross. Good thing I don’t watch this show.
Sick. Just sickening how gays want everything their way but don’t you dare question them because they’ll cry and call it gay bashing.
it’s all they are. they define themselves by their sexual acts. there is very little that differentiates them from the monkeys at the zoo
this is why the world has always rejected them
Sheesh, they can’t leave anything alone.
Next thing you know they’ll be casting aspersions on Batman and Robin.
What, maybe two letters were sent asking for this?
It’s a sick, sick world out there, Toto. Everybody wants to be a sexual deviant. A freak.
The show is phenomenal and this idea makes no sense because it would kill one of the running jokes that has been in almost all nine episodes.
They are not gay. And Watson has said that emphatically. He’s married now, so I don’t know what “fans” are asking for him and Holmes to turn gay.
Yes I do. “Fans” who have never seen the show or whose own choices of sexual expression have to be validated by TV characters making the same choices.
The show has a major following among the gay-obsessed loonbags hipsters on Tumblr.
This is likely where this stupidity originates.
according to gays every historical figure real or fiction was gay since they are no longer here to deny it.
Sherlick and Watscome.
Like with the Lesbos and Xena.
It is a very good show.
It is some fans (questionable how many) who are supposedly asking for this plot change.
I don’t see how it would help the show at all. Even in other such shows if a heterosexual couple get together the show usually goes downhill from there. Even if the characters were gay (which they are not) the plot device of sexual tension between main characters that applies to heterosexual situations would still apply. It would ruin the show for that reason alone.
It's actually a pretty decent show. But if they go that route, I'll never watch another episode.
Recently I reread the complete Sherlock. The notion that Sherlock and Watson were gay lover is absurd and finds no basis in Conan Doyle’s work.
