    R.I.P. Edward Hardwicke

    Most people knew him best as Dr. Watson, I guess, but for me, more than anything, he was Warnie in Shadowlands (which I just saw again at a movie-viewing party last weekend). R.I.P.

    Edward Hardwicke was the best Watson.

    He was an honorary member of the Sherlock Holmes society to which I belong. One of the committee members met him and said he was a very nice man in real life, and was happy to spend a lot of time being interviewed for the society journal.

    He was my favorite Watson, too. I never looked it up, but was he the son of Cedric Hardwicke? I always thought I could see a resemblance.

    Yes, he was.

    RIP, Watson.
