Speaking about the role to Radio Times, Henry said: "Our Sherlock is different from what we may see as the traditional misogynistic genius. Enola softens Sherlock and opens up his heart, which we haven't really had access to in other renditions." He added that "an enormous amount of the pressure was off because Sherlock's not at the forefront of the story".
