The podcast Decoder Ring took on a hot topic this past week: Who gets to determine whether Sherlock Holmes and Watson are a couple?

The suspicions of a romance between them aren’t new, but the Internet (of course) and the hugely popular TV show Sherlock have taken the “Johnlock” theory to a whole new level.

Sherlock’s showrunners have repeatedly, emphatically denied that they’re writing in any such love story.

Just as persistently, though, the Johnlock contingent has continued to believe. 

You can listen to the podcast through Slate’s website and/or read a lightly edited transcript of the episode on the same page.
