John H. Watson [1] [2] was the sidekick of famous fictional detective Sherlock Holmes.

HistoryEdit

Ghostly versions of the duo appeared to stop Professor Moriarty. It was explained that while Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson were not real people, many fans believed that they existed, which caused ghostly versions of them to appear. [3] [4] Watson drove Holmes around in an old-fashioned motor carriage. At the Museum of Crime, Watson saved the lives of the Ghostbusters by driving in front of an incoming guillotine blade. He was captured by the Hound of the Baskervilles and confined in its skeletal rib cage. In the final confrontation, Slimer pulled Watson free as the Hound was trapped. After saying his farewells to Winston, Watson willingly went into the Containment Unit after Sherlock Holmes and Moriarty fought and fell into it.

ClassificationEdit

Egon Spengler refers to Sherlock and Watson as Free-Roaming Archetypes. [5]

PowersEdit

Neither Watson, Holmes, the Hound of Baskervilles, or Moriarty were actually ghosts. As such the Proton Streams had no effect on them, but could still be captured in traps.

AppearancesEdit

The Real Ghostbusters
