Casting for: love interest of Sherlock Holmes, the world’s most famous detective. Holmes is notoriously difficult, far too intelligent for his own good, pushes everyone who cares about him out of his life. His love interest has to be interesting enough to look at that the brilliant Holmes can’t bear to look away. Genial, unassuming, physically strong but not flashy about it. Above average intelligence, dangerously brave, thoughtful, morally razor-sharp exactly the way Holmes is not. Strong nose. Dazzling in an approachable way. Eyes that can bore into your soul and carve a message in there. Holds heart in hands. Might appear normal at first glance; actually entirely extraordinary. Holmes will fall hopelessly in love and the world will understand why.
Martin Freeman: *shows up*
Everyone: well, obviously.
