Elementary: Lucy Liu and Jonny Lee Miller are Modern Watson and Holmes

The CBS series with a U.S. modern slant to the Sir Arthur Conan Doyle detective Sherlock Holmes and his partner in solving crime Dr. Watson, Elementary stars Lucy Liu and Jonny Lee Miller as the two literary legends from England. The timing of the network’s creation did alarm the BBC who have their own present day version of Holmes. The U.K. series, which is really more like a collection of three to four 88 minute TV movies broadcast yearly is based more on the books. This version made Cumberbatch a star, or at the very least a household name, and the British were concerned that their show, developed in 2010 had been copied in the 2012 American version.
