Sherlock Holmes And Watson Are Just Friends And Are Definitely Not Having Sex

SHThey’re not actually f***ing. It is possible for people of the same sex to have a deep friendship without being attracted to each other. People are attracted to each other in all sorts of ways. You don’t necessarily want to [sleep with] someone because you love them. They respect each other, they bring different things to their friendship… It’s a friendship. Way more has been made in the ether of that relationship than has ever been put in the show. The trouble is as soon as you start getting into a dialogue about that, it sounds like you‘re somehow being homophobic.”
