Happy Birthday, my Dear Watson!

According to Arthur Conan Doyle, today is the birthday of Dr. John Watson, Sherlock Holmes’ trusted companion and noted biographer.  Without Watson (via Conan Doyle, of course), the world would never have known of Holmes’ powers of observation and deduction and an entire genre of literature would have developed later and through some other pen.

Now we just have to wait another 5 months to see Watson back again on BBC, played by Martin Freeman, standing by the side of our modern-day Sherlock, played by Benedict Cumberbatch.  January 2017 can’t get here soon enough!
