Artykuł analizuje konstrukcję postaci Sherlocka w serialu BBC Sherlock oraz wykorzystaną w nim narrację o leczeniu detektywa, w wyniku którego traci on cechy autystyczne. Następnie przedstawiam krytykę tego rodzaju narracji z perspektywy studiów o niepełnosprawności, skupiając się na przemocy zawartej w dehumanizacji autystyków oraz w próbach wykorzenienia autyzmu.
