There has been a lot of hate towards the eldest Holmes brother since Reichenbach and I’m not of the opinion that any of it is deserved. While we may have a year to wait to discover the truth, and it is a capital offence for a Sherlockian to theorise without data, it is inconceivable to me that the events...
