SALLY DONOVAN, KID DETECTIVE! Sally, thirteen years old, five foot, quick as a cat and smart as a whip, is the best and most successful kid detective in her distract of London. She solves mysteries while acing Year Eight and putting up with her pest of a neighbor, Sherlock Holmes. But she’ll admit it - he’s almost as clever as she is.
Even among fans of Sally Donovan (at least as far as I’ve seen), there seems to be general acceptance of the idea that Sherlock's writers aren't interested in her as anything more than a mild antagonist for Sherlock.
And on the one hand, it’s really easy to see why people would believe that.
But… I don’t think it’s true. I think the writers have very definite plans for her.
Not that that necessarily means those plans will turn out to be great ones, because who knows. But I can be hopeful for the time being, can’t I?
they should just hire you to write the series honestly
"An old friend."
Sally and Sherlock used to be much closer.
And here’s Sherlock with his head pigeon, and it’s rocking out.
Isn’t it odd that no one from his rooftop hitlist was in his mind palace?
no, but seriously
if this shot makes you sad, you’re watching the wrong person
'cause tom is killing it over there on the right and it's hilarious
Trying out gif-making. It seems quite difficult to make the file-size small enough for tumblr
HE’S BOUNCING UP AND DOWN I CAN’T STOP LAUGHING OMG
“MYCROFT! ABORT MISSION! I REPEAT ABORT MISSION!”

You always feel it, Sherlock.
all I could think when he burst into that room was “Control, I have it!”

Guys….Greg started smoking again when Sherlock left.
I’m not going to even think about whether it’s because he’s stressed since he couldn’t use Sherlock as a resource and it made his job harder or because he actually missed him. But the smoking parallel is not a coincidence. We all know what the Sherlock writers say about coincidences…
