Anonymous said: Mr. Holmes, I was wondering if you had any tips or pointers as to how one would go about impersonating Dr. Watson. Maybe certain mannerisms, facial expressions, etc. Especially those that surface when he's around Sherlock.

Dr. Watson walks like both a soldier, with his shoulders back and his line of action straight, and a doctor rushing to aid. It’s a delicate balance between wanting to lunge forward and help, and holding back to remain composed. Try wearing sweaters. Orient yourself like a satellite, keep your body facing the most important thing around you. Orbit. 

As far as facial expressions go, he blinks a lot, and the corners of his mouth are especially expressive. 

Attempt to look clueless, but never miss an occasion to surprise your entourage with a brief spark of brilliance.
