Portrayed by Rosalie Williams

Mrs Hudson (Williams) refers to the on-screen incarnation of Mrs Hudson, as portrayed by Rosalie Williams in the ITV Granada Television adaptation.

Portrayal in the series

An elderly landlady at 221B Baker Street, this particular version of Mrs Hudson is fairly close to the Canon version.

Though she makes regular appearances in all the seasons of the ITV series, she doesn't appear in every single episode, reflecting a similar frequency in the Canon stories.

She also has relatively little direct impact on the plots of the individual stories.


Mrs Hudson was played by English actress Rosalie Williams throughout the entirety of the Granada-produced ITV series of Sherlock Holmes, from 1984 to 1994. She appeared in numerous episodes (though not all) and is the third most regularly appearing character in the main cast, after Holmes and Watson.
