Sherlock Holmes and The Freeman Promulgation
“Excellent,” I cried, “Elementary” replied Martin Freeman. We agreed that The Doctor and Sherlock would make a ‘perfect fictional team.’
Before turning to those moral and mental aspects of the matter which present the greatest difficulties, let the inquirer begin by mastering more elementary problems. Mr Freeman, who is in possession of the role of Dr. John Watson for Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss’ Sherlock, has neither the time nor the inclination for Doctor Who!
Speaking to a representative of the periodical What’s on TV, the thespian said;Â
“I don’t feel as passionate about Doctor Who as Stephen does, but I’ve enjoyed watching it more since being a father.”
Mr. Freeman,Â of The Office, thenÂ eliminated the impossible, leaving the truth, no matter how improbable it was, remaining;
“We met Matt Smith while filming Sherlock in Cardiff because the Baker Street set is next to the [Who] set. It was strange seeing Sherlock Holmes and The Doctor together. They are the perfect fictional team.”
Mr. Freeman here is displaying a rare skill; to reason backwards. There must be one in fifty who possessÂ such analytical skill.
The Thespian can next be seen practising his considerable art in SherlockÂ ‘The Blind Banker’ in a performance for BBC One on Sunday at 8:30pm, prompt.
