It Was the Husband

Okay. So I can't help but notice that Watson was the one to spot the rice thing. I'm not saying I insist on a Watson who never says anything but, "My word, Holmes! You certainly amaze me with your intellect!" but in this pilot episode for a new Sherlock Holmes series, Sherlock Holmes was practically useless. The police found Peter Saldua without him, and that would have led them to the idea that Peter killed Amy Dampier. I guess Holmes was necessary for Peter's medical record, but all the actual deduction was done by Watson. If you're going to have a Sherlock who's this big a jerk, you need to make him more relevant to the story.
