I find it very strange that the writers seem to think that this form of relatonship between Holmes and Watson makes for the best TV. I mean - those two actors have so much potential of an interesting, funny and intelligent relation, and yet every episode they argue, banter and are generally pissed at each other.
Which in turn leaves us, the viewers, with a bad taste in our mouths, when we should be ecstatic about the fantastic intellect and deductioning capabilities of Sherlock, and the good-hearted, down-to-earth logic and loyal friendship of his companion. This IS Sherlock Holmes, after all, not just any TV detective with a broken marriage.
I say - if they so desperately need a dark and somber side to this show - let it be about the drugs, Moriarty or cooperation issues with the police department. And let us have the Holmes/Watson duo we know and love!
