Under these circumstances, I eagerly hailed the little mystery which hung around my companion Sherlock jumps for joy at the thought of a serious murder investigation he can get his hands on. In this episode, Sherlock is eager to run off to the murder scene of Jennifer Wilson. It was Watson who pushed him to go to the scene of the crime and actually investigate the case directly.
I must thank you for it all. I might not have gone but for you Sherlock is called to investigate the death of Jennifer Wilson at Lauriston Gardens. Drebber at an inn at 3 Lauriston Gardens. Sherlock tells Mrs. Hudson that the game is on. The wedding ring informs Sherlock about several things that help him in solving the case. The man Watson meets is implied to be Moriarty to anyone familiar with the Holmes stories but we find out later that this is actually Mycroft Holmes.
Originally said to have a minor government job due to a talent with numbers, Holmes later told Watson that in reality, Mycroft was the nerve center of the British government, acting as a walking data base for many of its greatest secrets and using his incredible mind to manipulate events through secret operations. Although some media adaptations would show him doing this whenever a desire took him, the original stories by Doyle made it clear that Sherlock only did this if at least several weeks had passed without an interesting case to pass his time, telling Watson who was appalled by the habit that his brain suffered from stagnation and that if he had no problems to solve then he desperately needing the drug to keep his mind stimulated.
But Gatiss and Moffat felt that a modern-day detective doing this would too easily come off as a weak-willed man with an addiction. They did, however, concede that it was easy for them to imagine that Holmes would have developed a drug habit or done something equally dangerous to keep his mind stimulated before eventually realizing he could work as a detective.
And he certainly does have a grandiose sense of himself. And while he may appear unsympathetic in general, in the original stories by Doyle he would occasionally allow a criminal to go free if they had committed a crime to avenge or protect a woman they loved.

He also displayed a willingness to sacrifice his life for Watson and to kill for him if his friend were put in danger. In the original Doyle stories, Watson was described as a crackshot and a better marksman than Holmes. Although he brought his gun along with him on many adventures written by Doyle, he never actually fired it in those stories.
