HOW DOES THIS:
There’s only one false note in the entire episode, and it comes so early on that it’s easy to overlook: Mrs Hudson is apparently still convinced that Sherlock and John were lovers. […]
But for Mrs Hudson to still think it now? Mrs Hudson, who’s lived in the flat below Sherlock and John for years, who socialises regularly with them, who’s been something approaching a surrogate mother to them? We don’t quite buy it. And the ship-baiting is beginning to feel too much like Moffat and Gatiss trying to have their cake and eat it too. Or, to put it another way, trolling the fandom.
Either let Sherlock and John have a platonic, loving friendship, which only relative strangers would have reason to misinterpret. Or if there is actually something more between them, something that would justify a person as close to them as Mrs Hudson making that leap, then go ahead and give that idea the actual exploration it deserves in this day and age. The only-joking-or-are-we pussyfooting around it is getting tired.
