John H. Watson was a medical doctor and companion of Sherlock Holmes. He was a veteran of the Second Anglo-Afghan War. (PROSE: A Study in Scarlet) He lived in the same boarding house as Holmes, sharing a suite of rooms on the first floor. He was a regular patron of a brothel staffed by women he believed to be "clean," and of good breeding. It was his medical opinion that a man required regular sexual release for the sake of his health. (PROSE: Erasing Sherlock)
