I'd love to ask Sir Arthur Conan Doyle about the truth behind Holmes and Watson's relationship, but it'd probably go like this:
Me: So, Sir Conan Doyle, it's wonderful to finally meet you.
Doyle: Thank you, I suppose.
Me: So, there have been many rumours circulating regarding the true relationship between Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson. As their creator, I ask you this one question - where Holmes and Watson really more than just good friends?
Doyle: Oh, is that the time? Sorry, I have to go.
