Sherlock Holmes in the 22nd Century - List of Sherlock characters - Netflix

The following is a list and description of the characters of Sherlock, a British television series that started airing on BBC One in July 2010. The series is a contemporary adaptation of the Sherlock Holmes stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and was created by Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss.

Sherlock Holmes in the 22nd Century - Mycroft Holmes - Netflix

Mycroft Holmes (played by the show’s executive producer, co-creator, and writer Mark Gatiss) is first introduced when he abducts John and offers to pay him to spy on Sherlock. He is Sherlock’s older brother and engages in sibling rivalry with Sherlock. Mycroft is frequently mocked by Sherlock for “putting on weight”. He occupies a “minor position in the British government”; however, as with many Holmes-based works, it is heavily hinted that he has a much bigger role than he claims — on one occasion, Sherlock sarcastically remarks that Mycroft is the British government “when he’s not too busy being the British Secret Services, or the CIA on a freelance basis.” He is driven around in a private car with his personal assistant who goes by the name of “Anthea”. Just as in the Doyle books, Mycroft is even more skilled at deduction, correcting Sherlock on occasion and beating him in deduction exercises, as well as lacking enthusiasm for “legwork”. His intellect is borderline superhuman, allowing him to learn Serbian in a couple of hours. As such, even Sherlock admits that Mycroft is smarter than he is; in reference to their childhood, Mycroft thought Sherlock was “an idiot”, only changing his mind when they compared themselves with other children. Despite not paying John like he originally suggested, Mycroft is kept informed of anything his brother does that may be illegal, as seen in “His Last Vow”, where John informs him Sherlock had seemingly relapsed back into his old drug habits. Though concerned, Mycroft jokes it would be safer for Sherlock to cross-dress like their uncle. Mycroft knows his brother well, saying Sherlock considers himself a dragon-slayer; the villains Sherlock catches are the equivalent of dragons. In Mycroft’s opinion, Sherlock has “the mind of philosopher or scientist, yet he elects to be a detective.” However, he considers this an improvement, since as a child, Sherlock initially wanted to be a pirate. Charles Augustus Magnussen in His Last Vow reveals Mycroft to be in the Secret Intelligence Service. The brothers have been seen challenging each other's wits throughout the series, and enjoy playing Operation as though it were a chess game. Cigarette addiction is something Mycroft shares with Sherlock; Sherlock remarks that Mycroft can only handle low tar cigarettes and thus “smokes like a beginner.” Sherlock also declares to John that Mycroft has OCD. In “The Abominable Bride”, in Sherlock's Mind Palace, Mycroft is shown to be morbidly obese and engaging in a bet with Sherlock as to how long he has before dying. (Recurring series 1. Main series 2–)
