I could never have predicted this!
Years ago, I remember reading the publicity for this show before it was released, and pouring scorn on the idea of a modern Sherlock Holmes, set in New York and with a female Watson. “How pathetic!”, I sneered, “They must be really desperate for new ideas, to come up with this pile of rubbish!” And when it showed on British television, I only sat down to watch it so I could pull it to pieces.
I could never have guessed that years later I would be watching old episodes, while I impatiently wait for the fourth series to be broadcast. All the people involved have obviously worked very hard to create this intelligent and entertaining show, which has fun with the original stories and characters, while still showing respect (in my view) to the books and the author, Arthur Conan Doyle. Oh, and while I like Jonny Lee Miller as Sherlock, I think the actors who play Joan Watson, Captain Thomas Gregson and Detective Marcus Bell deserve a special mention, as they have the more restrained and therefore difficult roles to play, as his sidekicks.
Thank you for making and releasing “Elementary”. And please hurry up with the next series!
A rare treat from the USA
This purports to be a take on Sherlock, migrated to modern New York and it does this very well. Sherlock is a true eccentric, Watson equally and entertainingly odd with the NYPD reassuringly stereotypical, adding balance. Jonny Lee Millar gives consistently outstanding performances full of quirky finger movements, twitches and sudden changes of direction – mental, emotional and physical. Watson is a bewildered soul mesmerised by Holmes, resentful of his offhand treatment of her, intrigued but unable to escape. Irene likewise is outstandingly good – another flawed character, riveting to watch. This series is a revelation, worth watching for JLM’s performance alone. Worth 10/10 were it not for Watson’s quacky delivery and Holmes’ mumbling when thinking out loud but don’t let this affect your enjoyment – just see if you agree. Absolutely brilliant.
