I debated posting this here at all, given how divisive Mary has been both in the Holmes canon and on BBC Sherlock, but this as this is going to be where I start my thesis work, I figured it was important to write about. I’d like to preface this post with two disclaimers. First, this is my own reading and interpretation of the character of Mary Morstan in the Holmes canon. I’m not saying it’s the only one, by any means, just that it’s mine. And second, my research for this thesis is still in progress, and thus there are some critical gaps in my evidence that I (obviously) plan on filling in. This post mostly serves as an outline for me to get all my thoughts down in a coherent order. That being said, if you have anything that you’d like to contribute, whether it’s a rebuttal or a source that you think I’d enjoy, please feel free to drop me an ask!
Okay, the rest of the post is under the cut because it got long haha~
