I made this graphic because some people like to complain that changing the gender/sex of the characters somehow “ruins” or “desecrates” Arthur Conan Doyle’s legacy. Funnily enough nobody ever complains when they are turned into mice, dogs, etc. (Presumably because they are still male.) As you can see there have been several female versions of these characters in the past, and they have hardly ruined anything.

Some of the oldest adaptations only had the actor info for Holmes on IMDB, so either Watson didn’t exist in those films at all, or the actor is unknown. (If he did exist it’s pretty safe to assume he was male.)

I excluded incarnations where Holmes/Watson only appeared once as guest stars in unrelated tv shows. (There were lots.)

doing fem!sherlock and fem!john is my guilty pleasure. It’s more of a style practising rather than characters themselves.

While everybody is too busy fighting over Elementary, I just thought I’d let you know that I love whenever there are lady Watsons. So that’s Dr. Mildred Watson from They Might Be Giants (1971), Watson from Мой нежно любимый детектив (1986) and Jane Watson from The Return of Sherlock Holmes (1987).

the more I see of the upcoming CBS show Elementary, the more excited I become.

So have some floating heads!

I wanted to draw something exciting, but I’ve never been very good at action packed stuff, so this will have to do!

Sherlock Holmes, capable of being sassy and dry and deadpan WITHOUT being an unremitting asshole? WELL I NEVER.

Yeah, it’s Young Miss Holmes! (Christie: High Tension in Japan.) Seven Seas is translating and publishing it in omnibus editions in North America, with the first two tankoubon collected into a single volume (“Casebook 1 & 2”). The next omnibus is slated to come out in November. :)
Here’s the official Seven Seas summary:
Christie Holmes is a prodigy. At ten years old, she’s as familiar with the sciences and classics as any older student at Cambridge or Oxford. And her facility with logic is reminiscent of her uncle, the eminent Sherlock Holmes himself. So, what’s a brilliant young girl to do when her parents are away in India, leaving her behind in the care of maids and servants? Solve mysteries, of course. Along with her giant hound Nelson, Christie’s implacable curiosity leads her from one dangerous adventure to another, often joining forces with Uncle Sherlock and Doctor Watson on their famed investigations. Christie may look pint-sized, but her clever mind is never to be underestimated!
I only skimmed it in the bookstore, but it was SUPER CUTE and charming. I’ll definitely be snagging it soon!

This looks SO RIDICULOUSLY CHARMING.
lol I am the ~worst~ holmesian and idgaf, ADORABLE LITTLE GIRL RETELLINGS OF SH? THE BEST.
