This week's Sherlock topic is favorite minor character. There is much debate over who is considered a main character and who is a minor character. But since I only consider Sherlock, Watson, and Moriarty to be main characters, I have lots of minor characters to choose from.
But ultimately, I had to go with this guy...
Detective Inspector Greg Lestrade
I like Lestrade because he's funny, he's Sherlock's friend even if Sherlock doesn't think so, and he believes in Sherlock Holmes. He puts up with a lot of crap from Sherlock, but he does it with patience (most of the time) because he needs Sherlock.
Plus, he's played by Rupert Graves and everybody knows that Rupert Graves is good at football and has five kids.
Who is your favorite minor character?
