I'm a huuuuuge Sherlock Holmes fan and this series is a really fun portrayal of him, but that Jack the Ripper conclusion was... really bad. For one, probably one of the worst transphobic scenes in anything I've ever seen, but even beyond that... Blegh. It left a horrible taste in my mouth, which is a huuuuge shame.

I kinda get where they were going with the reveal from a story stnadpoint, but I can understand why it wouldn't be well-received from as far as representation of trans people is concerned.
