Description:

In the London of 2081, aerotaxis are commonplace, personal identification is tied to computers, and robots are tightly regulated. John Watson, former army roboticist, has an expired license and an illegal tri-wing screwdriver in his desk. Sherlock Holmes has fingerprints and a name, and in an office somewhere in Whitehall there are blueprints for the metal underneath his perfect, artificial skin.

Notes:

This Machine Called Man is an AU of A Study in Pink. Subsequent fics are parts of what was originally a single novel-length sequel to This Machine Called Man, and should be read in order, but you can probably skip This Machine Called Man if you want to for some reason. All of it was written in pursuit of this prompt:

"Sherlock is a robot. He is sentient but pure programming. He's not supposed to have emotions at all.
Then John enters the picture. Sherlock finds aberrations in his routines, things he cannot explain.
Bonus points for Mycroft trying to revert Sherlock back to his old, emotionless state."
