Bill Murray was an Army nurse who saved John Watson's life when he was shot in Afghanistan. Murray knew Watson before they went to Afghanistan, calling him a casanova at that time. Murray and Watson lost contact after Watson returned to Britain, as Watson did not know of Murray's marriage until January 2010.

Previous to December 21 2009, he tried emailing Watson but the emails bounced back. He came to London at the end of December that year.

Watson and Murray met up around January 28 2010, where he learnt that Murray was getting married.

Murray questioned Watson's sexuality on Watson's blog.


Bill Murray has not yet appeared in any of the Sherlock episodes, though he is a frequent commenter on John's blog.

Behind the scenesEdit

A Murray also saved the John Watson from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's stories. An exercpt from chapter 1 of A Study in Scarlet reads:

I should have fallen into the hands of the murderous Ghazis had it not been for the devotion and courage shown by Murray, my orderly, who threw me across a packhorse, and succeeded in bringing me safely to the British lines.
