Sherlock Holmes, (Benedict Cumberbatch) Sherlock
Dialogue Sample: “Dear God. What is it like in your funny little brains? It must be so boring.”
Made the List Because: So he’s technically not a scientist. But whatevs to that technicality! He’s the most science-based detective EVER, and he conducts way more experiments in one ep than most TV scientists do in a season. Plus, he has his own chemical research station, and he does things like store severed heads in his fridge (because knowing saliva coagulation rates after death is of utmost import). So yeah. We say he’s a scientist. A Scientist of Deduction.
