^ Oh, I didn't realise that Gregson was from the original novels. I thought he was a new character.
Gregson is one of the few Scotland Yard inspectors for whom Holmes has any regard; Holmes calls him "the smartest of the Scotland Yarders" in A Study in Scarlet.

The other notable Scotland Yard inspector for whom Holmes has any respect is Stanley Hopkins, but he doesn't appear until late in the Canon.
which actually goes to show that there are is plenty of Sherlock canon for this show to "explore" without stealing from the BBC TV series.
