Dr. John H. Watson M.D. was the literary alias of the assistant to the detective Sherlock Holmes.
Watson was known for his fictionalised accounts of the adventures of his friend Sherlock Holmes that were edited by Arthur Conan Doyle, in whose name they were published. Because of this, it was widely believed both contemporaneously and later that Holmes was in fact a fictional character created by Conan Doyle. In 1887, Holmes and Watson assisted the Seventh Doctor in battling the Old One called Azathoth. (PROSE: All-Consuming Fire)
Fictional / Meta-Fictional Status Edit
On both occasions of their meeting the Doctor and his associates (and during the various references to said meetings) it is suggested that Sherlock Holmes and John Watson are not in fact their real names, but the pseudonyms used in the 'stories'.
Information regarding their encounters with Bernice Summerfield and Ace is only provided in subjective form by Bernice herself and Watson, each of whom maintained diaries of said events. (PROSE: All-Consuming Fire, Happy Endings)
