The clumsy, shy and adorable Molly Hooper is certainly one of the characters that we would like to watch more often on Sherlock. In her awkward ways, she manages to bring a charming appeal to the whole show. Even though she spends the better part of her day with dead bodies, but there is nothing sordid about her.
Her affection for our protagonist has been quite apparent, but to no avail. She always remains at Sherlock’s beck and call, ready to help. At times, you cannot help but feel pity for her when Sherlock brutally dissects her, making her extremely vulnerable.
