I'm kinda miss them during the hiatus. Especially Clyde the turtle! This show is not exactly the best Holmes adaptation. It has its moments and its flaws. But the characters are my most favorite version.
And I agree with you, for all the show's issues I quite like the friendship between Sherlock and Joan. Unlike the BBC version, this version of Watson has gotten the better of Sherlock before and doesn't just let him get away with his insults
