Mrs. Sherlock Holmes on Timeless

As I mentioned yesterday, this weeks episode of Timeless was called 'Mrs. Sherlock Holmes'.

And since the show likes to blend fact with fiction I was not expecting the show to have come up with another fictional character to add to its leads.

Instead this episode focused on the abilities of Mary Grace Humiston.
An early 20th century woman who made her name known as a lawyer and part time detective.

While we will never know if Ms. Humistons personality was indeed Sherlockian, they played that for all it was worth in the episode.
Enough so that you could see a show built around 'Mrs. Sherlock Holmes' and the very Sherlockian way she was played.
Well done.
One thing I like about shows the blend fact in fiction is that they make me want to go find out how much of the fact is actually fact and how much is fiction.

  1. I like the fact that Mrs. Sherlock Holmes was played as no-nonsense rather than quirky.
