Sometimes I think about how Molly Hooper was initially written as just a character to be the butt of a “and then Sherlock deduces that her boyfriend is gay” joke
LOUISE BREALEY owned her tiny scenes - OWNED THEM!!! - and ended up being a key character in the salvation of Sherlock Holmes.
FUCK YEAH, LOO!
Actually, I read somewhere that Molly was written into the pilot to showcase Sherlock’s disinterest in ‘sex’ (and all that it entails - dating, etc.) and his inability to read such simple social cues as when Molly asks him out. But Loo brought the character to life so beautifully, that they couldn’t resist bringing her back.. How BADASS is that??
I think you have the facts straighter than I did. :)
However, the point remains that Loo came in for a bit role but did such a good job that she was offered more work. I just find that really AWESOME!
You’re kind of both right. She was initially written to show Sherlock’s ineptitude. But Gatiss wanted to have Sherlock deduce someone’s boyfriend was gay and they liked Louise. And then they brought her back again. And again. And now she might as well be a regular.
