This article features minor characters from Sherlock. A minor character can be defined as:

  • A character who never appears on screen.
  • A character who does appear on screen but who we have very little information on - for example, a character that only appears very briefly, has little or no effect on plot, etc.

Clara Edit

Clara is first introduced in the pilot episode of Sherlock, when Sherlock deduces that John has a brother named Harry, though John says Harry is his sister, whose real name is Harriet. Harry was dating Clara, but Harry ended things, in large part due to her own alcoholism.

Harriet Watson Edit

Harriet "Harry" Watson was John Watson's older sister. She was thirty-six when John and Sherlock met for the first time.[1]

Harry was first mentioned when Sherlock Holmes managed to deduce information about her from a glance at John's phone.[2] The phone became John's when Harry passed it on to him after her relationship with her spouse, Clara, ended due to her (Harry's) alcoholism. An engraving remained on the back, allowing Sherlock to deduce that Harry ended the relationship with Clara rather than the other way around.[2] Harry has attempted unsuccessfully to give up drinking and John planned on visiting her on at least one Christmas. She is a regular visitor and contributor to John's blog.[3] Harry was invited to John and Mary's wedding, but she did not attend.[4]

Redbeard Edit


Redbeard was Sherlock's childhood pet dog who was put down when Sherlock was a child. Charles Augustus Magnussen reveals him to be a pressure point of Sherlock and mentions it to him, as does Mycroft in the call prior to the wedding.

Appearances Edit

Mentioned Edit

Mrs Turner Edit

"Mrs Turner next door's got married ones."
―Mrs Hudson [src]

Marie Turner is the next door neighbour to the residents of 221 Baker Street. She is friends with Mrs Hudson, who visits her often and borrows her computer, until John and Sherlock buy her a laptop for Christmas.[5][6]

One of her tenants attempts to get Mrs Hudson to join Facebook (possibly one half of the gay couple mentioned in 'A Study in Pink').[7]

She (or at least her online presence) can be seen commenting on 'The Speckled Blonde' entry in John Watson's blog.[8]

Trivia Edit

  • This character is a reference to a continuity error in "A Scandal in Bohemia" where Holmes calls the landlady "Mrs Turner".
