What if Dr. Watson was a woman and Sherlock Holmes wasn't always right?

On the run from Moriarty, the keenest criminal mind they've ever faced, Holmes is unsure of his powers, and Watson is unsure of him.

“You must stand clear, Mr. Holmes, or be smashed.”
– Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s "The Final Problem"

“I want people to experience the softer side of Sherlock Holmes.
I’m trying open up the cozy-mystery world into something much more personal.”
– Playwright Matthew Ivan Bennett

The first female doctor in London, Elizabeth Garrett Anderson, obtained her medical license in 1865,
twenty-six years before Sir Arthur Conan Doyle penned "The Final Problem."
