The Empty House
The Scene that broke not only Watson’s heart.
From Bending the Willow by David Stuart Davies:
At one moment it almost seems as though he is about to respond with a cry of ‘Watson’, but then he stops himself.
‘That was deliberate. It wasn’t in the script but I just wanted to show that Holmes had affections for Watson and for a fleeting second they almost get the better of his practical mind. But they don’t. [Large Brett grin.] It is a moment.’
