John Watson (BBC's Sherlock)

Dr. John Watson was trained at St. Bartholomew's Hospital before becoming a British army doctor, serving as a captain in the Fifth Northumberland Fusiliers. He was deployed to Afghanistan, where he served until being shot in the shoulder. He recovered from the physical wound, but was left with psychological trauma: a psychosomatic limp in his leg and an intermittent tremor in his left hand. The limp was bad enough to require a cane to help him walk, and shortly thereafter he was discharged from service.

After returning home, his life was a bit out of sorts. He began seeing a therapist for post-traumatic stress, and as part of his treatment, he intended to keep a blog to record his day to day life.

Soon after, he met Sherlock Holmes when he was looking for a flatmate to live with him at 221B Baker Street. He was soon drawn into Sherlock's rather strange need to pursue cases for Scotland Yard even though he was not officially employed by the Met. Before long, he actually found himself enjoying what he was doing to help his new friend, and now, his blog serves as a chronicle of the cases Sherlock solves.

John is brave, resourceful and practical as well as extremely proficient in fire arms due to his military training. He is extremely loyal to Sherlock and has a sister named Harriet (nicknamed Harry) whom he does not see often anymore mainly due to her alcoholism.

This version of John Watson and Sherlock belong to Steven Moffat, Mark Gatiss, Hartswood Films, BBC Wales and WGBH, based on the works of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. No infringement is intended - this is done just for fun. This journal also has no ties to Martin Freeman, who plays the character in the series.
