There is very little mention of Mrs. Hudson's background or even her physical appearance in the original stories written by Conan Doyle. She is Holmes’ and Watson's landlady at 221 B Baker Street. Although she protests that she is not their housekeeper, she regularly feeds and cleans up after them, and puts up with their outrageous behaviour.
The number of women who have already played Mrs Hudson.
For a man who distrusts women, there are many women in Sherlock Holmes’s life - yet only one woman is there at the beginning and end: the indefatigable Mrs Hudson.
Mrs Hudson lives at 221C Baker Street and rents 221B to Holmes & Watson.
