SAN DIEGO, July 19 (UPI) -- "Sherlock" co-creator Steven Moffat says John Watson, Sherlock Holmes' sidekick in sleuthing on the British drama series, will get married next season.
"Hot off the presses from 110 years ago ... John does get married," Moffat told the crowd at Comic-Con in San Diego Thursday. "The secret was out before you were born."
The contemporary London-set show is based on the 19th century detective stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. In the modern incarnation, Benedict Cumberbatch plays Holmes, while Martin Freeman plays Watson.
