M. L. Holmes is a mathematician, who gave up her career to raise her children. She is the wife of Mr. Holmes and the mother of Mycroft and Sherlock Holmes. Neither of her sons are very fond of her, as Sherlock has a list of things she has to answer for while Mycroft has a file, but their father adores her.
M. L. Holmes has a very warm and welcoming personality, allowing Bill Wiggins and John and Mary Watson to stay for Christmas. She did not like the squabbles between her sons. She appears to be at least as intelligent as her two sons, since she deals comfortably with mathematics and with people. John Watson's impression was that she (and her husband) seems 'ordinary'.
