Mary Morstan is a character - feel free to hate her all that you want; however, Amanda Abbington is a person, and does not deserve the hate that she’s been receiving. You are sending death threats to an actress that was hired to play a character. The actress has literally nothing to do with the character, besides the fact that they share a face and voice. She is Martin’s partner and we all adore the both of them, and I wouldn’t put it past Martin to consider dropping Sherlock - which he is choosing to be a part of - because his partner is being harassed by the fans of the show.
We love Martin, and we love how he portrays John, we love his and Benedict’s dynamic, and Amanda has always been extremely supportive of the fandom and our completely odd shenanigans, so don’t go chasing after her with pitchforks and torches just because she’s playing a character that is the love interest of one half of our duo.
She’s a real human being, not a fictional one. Just stop.
