If we’ve left your personal favourite off this list, please let us know in the comments at the bottom of the page.

  1. The Holmes brothers are my joint favourite characters!!! I love Mycroft!!! And the lines he’s given are amazing! I’m really looking forward to seeing what Mycroft did to make Mrs Hudson so angry with him!!! And I literally fangirled so much that I nearly threw my pen across the room!
