There was one feature, and only one feature, of interest in the whole of this baffling case, and quite frankly it was the usual. John Watson - who, while I was trying to solve the murder, instead saved a life. 

So Sherlock has admitted, to a whole room full of people who know that he has committed his life and the entirety of his attention span to crime-solving, that he finds John Watson more interesting than most of his cases. John Watson is more interesting to Sherlock than a crime scene. More interesting than an attempted murder he can’t solve.
