New CBS series: Elementary preview
by Doc on May.17, 2012, under Television
Remember that modern-day retelling of Sherlock Holmes CBS brought to pilot, and made Steven Moffat angry considering it is basically the same concept as his Sherlock series on the BBC/PBS? Well, it’s been picked up for series, and we’ve got the preview for you so you can see if it really is similar. One major difference – Holmes’ (Jonny Lee Miller, Eli Stone) companion, Watson, is a woman! Lucy Liu (Southland) plays Joan Watson, is his “sober companion”, as Holmes is a unpaid consultant for Scotland Yard in New York attending a rehab facility.
