TV show description:      
This TV series gives a new take on the classic Arthur Conan Doyle characters. It’s a modern-day drama about a crime-solving duo that cracks the NYPD’s most impossible cases.

Following his fall from grace in London and a stint in rehab, eccentric detective Sherlock Holmes (Jonny Lee Miller) escapes to Manhattan where his wealthy father forces him to live with his worst nightmare — a sober companion, Doctor Joan Watson (Lucy Liu). She was a successful surgeon until she lost a patient and her license three years ago.

Watson views her current job as another opportunity to help people, as well as paying a penance. However, the restless Sherlock is nothing like her previous clients. He informs her that none of her expertise as an addiction specialist applies to him and he’s devised his own post-rehab regimen — resuming his work as a police consultant in New York City.

Watson finds she has no choice but to accompany her irascible new charge on his jobs. In the end, Sherlock finds her medical background helpful, and Watson realizes she has a knack for playing investigator.

Sherlock’s police contact is Captain Tobias “Toby” Gregson (Aidan Quinn). He knows, from previously working with Scotland Yard, that Sherlock is brilliant at closing cases, and welcomes him as part of the team.

  2. Pat says

    Please make more episodes, REALY like the show,and it is so nice to hear English spoken properly for a change !!!!!!!

  3. Leigh says

    This is a great show. No profanity, or gruesome sense. Should continue on for many years. Do not wish this to be cancelled.

  4. Sue says

    Finally a show with no profanity or hypersexed characters. Finally a show that demonstrates deductive reasoning and is suitable for the teenage market. The show is an excellent learning tool and shows how a male and female can be friends and coworkers without jumping into bed. It is the only show of its kind on TV. Please keep it on the air so young adults can see a relationship based on respect and intelligence between two people rather than the run of the mill glib, glamour, sexy diatribe usually served to the public.

    Most intellectually stimulating show on TV.
    Look forward to next season and seeing any
    episodes I might have missed.
    J.L. Miller is a great actor.

    Can’t believe a great show like this is to be cancelled!!!! Love the characters, love the mind stimulation, great story lines. With all the junk on t.v. this is one of the few shows my family and I loved.
    Save this show please!

    Elementary is by far one of the best drama series to come out of America for a long time. The plots are great and the acting superb.

  8. David Cox says

    Elementary is without doubt the finest show on tv. The stories are superb and the acting of Sherlock has to be award winning.

    Elementary is CBS – indeed any form of media entertainment – in exceptionally brilliant form. It is a show with no equal when all it’s nuances and exemplary acting are considered. I hope it continues for years to come. Sadly, for as yet unknown reasons the best shows seem to be the ones cancelled. I surmise it may be due to the declining interest in intellectual stimulation combined with the growth of vain “reality tv” and other forms of frantic non-cerebral nonsense that better suits those for whom intellectual pursuits are beyond their grasp – a group which unfortunately comprises a large percentage of modern day viewers.

    I’m glad the show is coming back next year. I look forward to watching this show every week. It’s terrific.

    We finally decided to give it a try since CBS actually kept it going longer than 6 episodes. We figured why bother – they always kill off shows just as you start getting into them. Well, we like it! We like it! …now CBS will kill it off for sure. (Hope not!)
