I’m very fond of the British sketch comedy That Mitchell and Webb Look and have already posted another Holmes-Watson sketch by the duo, but this sketch, which I think might be the very last of the series is so touching — and manipulative — that I cried even when trying to recount it to my husband. You’ll find this incredibly hard to watch and you’ll never want to watch it again but I do think you’ll appreciate the superb acting of David Mitchell (Holmes) and Robert Webb (Watson). Without a doubt, it makes very obvious the friendship between these two comedians and between Holmes and Watson.
Just to warn you, this sketch shows Watson visiting Holmes not at his home on the Sussex Downs amid his bees but rather at his nursing home. It is a three-hanky problem to be sure.
