— Burke to Holmes and Watson, "Evidence of Things Not Seen".

Gary Burke is an FBI Agent that Joan Watson made contact with. She and Sherlock Holmes have worked cases with him on several occasions.


Season Four

After Holmes and Watson are suspended from working with the NYPD, Agent Burke calls them to consult on a triple homicide at a neuro-economics lab. Burke will only allow them to go where he goes. They provide input on the crime scene but he won't allow them to go to the victim's homes. They discover a Chinese spy, Dan Zheng, and Holmes is able to track him down. Zheng was framed by Alta Von See who had motive to discredit the head of DARPA to become its new head. They are able to find evidence that Von See killed those at the lab using a sonic pressure shield to incapacitate them (as she is crippled) and then shoot them. ("Evidence of Things Not Seen")
