Dr John Hamish Watson is the best friend and assistant of Sherlock Holmes and a former British Army doctor. He lived in 221B Baker Street with Sherlock, a flat rented from Mrs. Hudson, before marrying Mary Morstan. During the two years John was under the illusion that Sherlock was dead, John met Mary whom he worked with before developing a romantic relationship. However, after her supposed death, John went into a state of depression before letting go and moving on with his life.
In the alternate universe of The Crack Made Me Do It, John appears as a Crackhead. He reacts to Gracie's decisions much like he does to Sherlock's.
John is extremely brave and resourceful. He is extremely loyal to Sherlock, and will usually, but not always, do what Sherlock asks him to, caring a great deal about his well-being. Sherlock likewise cares about John. He is also very selfless and modest. He is very sarcastic and has an unpredictable sense of humour. He is left-handed.
