Mycroft Holmes is the older brother of Sherlock Holmes.

Biography Edit

Mycroft met Sherlock and Dr John Watson at the Shush Club in the East End of London for Watson's stag party before his marriage to Mary Morstan. Later, after Sherlock threw Mary from her honeymoon train to protect her from Professor Moriarty's henchmen, Mycroft pulled Mary Watson from a river. He was obviously informed by Sherlock of his plans to do so, as he was ready and waiting in a boat with Carruthers. Mycroft then took her to his home to be safe from Moriarty. Later, Sherlock used Mycroft's breathing device to survive the fall from Reichenbach Castle into the waterfall below.

Personality Edit

Mycroft, like his brother, was analytical, highly intelligent and a fiercely cunning man in the British Secret Service. He was loyal to the crown. He cared about his brother and had an air of youth about him, still referring to Sherlock by his childhood nickname: 'Sherly'!

Behind the scenesEdit

Fry's version of Mycroft is one of the few to appear anywhere near as 'portly' as the character is described in the original tales.

Trivia Edit

  • This incarnation of Mycroft is implied to be homosexual, given his comments to Mary about learning appreciate the company of someone her "gender".
