It’s episode 2 of The Baker Street Irregulars, titled “The Sober Companion.” In this episode we take a look at Watson’s role in Holmes’ battles with addiction, and reflect on whether recent adaptations do justice to this extremely complex and intimate relationship.
Episode 3 will air two weeks from today (we promise!), and focus on how modern adaptations portray Holmes as neuroatypical.
