Toby is a Good Dog!
Would watch again!
Hey, Steph! I have this inkling that dogs stand for homosexuality (cf. the innkeepers trying to hide a dog, everyone thinking it was a monster, but it was just a dog; Sherlock describing John as a puppy around Sholto, etc.) So, Redbeard must have something to do with Sherlock's homosexuality. Since Rb. is already thematically tied to Victor Trevor, I'm willing to bet that real!Victor (not the crap they told us in TFP) had something to do with Sherlock repressing his feelings. Just an idea.
