Molly Hooper

Molly Hooper
Full Name
Molly Hooper
Played By
St. Bartholomew’s Hospital, London, England, UK

Molly spends her days slicing up human cadavers. There's no nicer way of putting it, not to mention her occupation does tend to mean she doesn't want to "be doing" roast pork in St. Bart's canteen. Although let's face it, the place is never going to trouble Egon Ronay.

The men she sees on the slab however, are far less of a problem for her than the two living and breathing ones she sees at the hospital.

Firstly there's Sherlock Holmes. She likes Sherlock, especially when he notices she's changed her hair. It's usually parted in the middle you see and she has changed it to the side. He said this was good and suits her better this way, which was nice. Although, sometimes she doesn't like him so much, as he always has to spoil things. Like that time when she started seeing Jim from I.T. and Sherlock said he was gay. He's not gay, he's not!

She likes Jim too. In fact, they're together; it's an office romance. Domestic bliss even suits her, as she has put two and a half pounds on since she and Jim started dating, but not three like 'someone' suggested. Not sure why Jim gave Sherlock his number though? Maybe he just wanted to meet him for a friendly pint at The Fox or something!?

Molly can be found at St. Bart's morgue if you are ever in need of any body parts, use of their facilities, or even hair styling tips. You can read her blog too if you like 'Glee' and cats, at
