Sally Donovan
I told you, didn't I?
First time we met.
Right, here’s the deal: I don’t abide by being made fun of or fool of, and I’m much cleverer than the Freak gives me credit for. His deductions are a bit too on the mark if you know what I mean. I’m Detective Sergeant Sally Donovan of Scotland Yard. I do my job, and I do it well.

RE: ‘Various Unsolved Murders Put London on the Edge… of a Knife!’

The recent article posted in the Evening Standard is nothing more than sensational journalism, full of overblown exaggerations and needless conjecture that everyone is at risk of being attacked by their next door neighbour or the milkman.

The recent trio of murders that have been discovered so far do not mean that the city of London is under siege. To say such a thing, like The Evening Standard, is frankly ridiculous. While the city is advised to adhere to the general precautions it usually takes, we suggest no further procedures at this time. We currently have several leads on the case that will be investigated fully.

This is the Yard’s official statement and may be used in further publication so long as it is not modified, misquoted, edited, or changed in any way.

For further details, please address comments/questions/concerns to Detective Sergeant Sally Donovan, Scotland Yard.

And this is exactly why you don’t make deals with crazed lunatics.

All units advised to be on high alert.

Movement on Case#4835906, suspect may be moving out of the city via the underground. Position units at all exits pending further advisory.

This isn’t a drill gents - don’t let this go to pot.

CASE #520442 Update

Katarina Ferguson was reported missing six months ago from Southwark. The missing woman is described as being 5”4, 9 stone, with long brown hair and brown eyes, age 32.

We have recently analyzed several different bits of information and have reason to believe she may be in the Camden area. If you see a woman who fits this description, please notify authorities immediately.

Tips may be directed towards the contribution page.

Is Sherlock working with you on any cases right now?
ASKED BY Anonymous

No, he isn’t, not at the moment. He’s off gallivanting about town I expect.

It has been a while, hasn’t it?

the-british-government:

I’ve finally found the time to post something. Work has been rather busy, and I do believe there were a couple instances of sulking from Gregory, between John’s photograph of Gladstone and Mummy’s post about her new stray. He’s been rather difficult to keep from running off to crime scenes as well, but fortunately, there have been no further injuries thus far.

You know I adore you, darling, but if you continue this way, do know that I might turn a blind eye when Sergeant Donovan decides to handcuff you to your desk. We are only concerned for your health.

And for the record, yes, Sherlock and I have begun speaking again.

All due respect Mr. Holmes-Lestrade, but it does make it rather more difficult to catch him when you’ve given him advance notice, right?

Good lord, where did the lot of you new followers come from? Well, cheers, at least.

I hope you’ll find this blogging site a useful liaison to Scotland Yard. We’re here to help you, so don’t hesitate to contact us should you need help or have tips.

Dear Sally, there have been some..ahem, rumors that you and a certain consulting detective had romantic escapades with you that eventually led to your mutual dislike of one another. Is there any truth to these statements?

That’s absolutely ridiculous.

Honestly, you anons just spout total nonsense, don’t you? I don’t think I need to comment any further than that.

Case #520442 - Her doctor's not exactly clean. Might want to check records under the name George Newman.

Cheers, mate. Thanks for the info. The department seemed to think the doc was a dead end, but… we’ll look into it.

You know where to find us.

What's the story behind you and Sherlock? There's obviously more to your dislike for him than just him coming in and working the cases with you. For you. Whatever.

I’m going to ignore the slight at the end of that just because there’s not enough bad behaviour in the world to make me flip after finally getting a coffee. It’s been a long weekend.

Everyone knows someone who rubs them the wrong way, yeah?  Normally you don’t also get stuck working with them when they’re not employed by your boss. I am an officer of the law and seeing bad behaviour get rewarded doesn’t sit well with me. There’s none of this ends justifying means. That’s how criminal get started.

I didn’t dislike Sherlock Holmes when I met him initially. Like you, I assumed he had peoples’ better interests at heart. And, I suppose, he does… so long as there’s an interesting enough puzzle behind it. He is not a man most people can befriend, nor is he a man most people love.

There is something broken there, between us and him. He is not my friend, and he is not your friend, either. I respect the man, but that doesn’t mean I trust him. A large part of my job comes in asking questions, being suspicious, keeping my eyes and ears open. It makes me a damn good officer not to just automatically agree with every Tom, Dick and Harry I meet. Sherlock Holmes is no different from them.
