Nomenclature

When the Sherlock Holmes stories were written, it was common for even close friends to call each other by their surnames, thus “Holmes” and “Watson”.  These days that doesn’t sound natural, so the current BBC Sherlock has them calling each other, well, Sherlock and John.

I am less than impressed by the running joke about Watson being gay.  I don’t really get why that should even be a thing, in this day and age, nor why people should fail to believe him when he says he’s not.
