- “Sherlock: "Shut up."
Lestrade: "I didn't say anything."
Sherlock: "You were thinking. It's annoying."”
- ―Sherlock and Lestrade
Greg Lestrade is one of the main characters in BBC's Sherlock. Though he is sometimes annoyed by Sherlock's antics, Lestrade sees him as a great man. He is also friends with John and Mary Watson, Molly Hooper, and Mrs. Hudson
Greg is based on Detective Inspector Lestrade from the Sherlock Holmes novels by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
- Sherlock never gets Lestrade's first name right, calling him names (I.E. Gavin, Graham, Geoff or Giles). However, he finally gets it right in the series.
