Sherlock Holmes comes to the 21st century in Elementary

CBS’s Elementary brings legendary crime solver Sherlock Holmes to New York City. Together with a female Dr. Watson, Holmes employs his reasoning expertise to close cases for the NYPD..



On the heels of his recent disgrace in modern-day London, and after a brief stretch in rehab, renowned private detective and police consultant Sherlock Holmes (Jonny Lee Miller) flees to New York City. Upon arriving, Holmes discovers that his wealthy father has arranged for a live-in “sober companion” for him, Dr. Joan Watson (Lucy Liu).

Watson sees her job as a chance to help a patient and atone for the mistakes she made that led to the death of a patient and the loss of her medical license three years earlier. But when Holmes reveals that he has made his own post-rehab arrangements, Watson must tag along as he resumes his work as a police consultant, brought in to help solve the NYPD’s toughest cases.

Through his previous dealings with Scotland Yard, Captain Tobias “Toby” Gregson (Aidan Quinn) knows that Holmes is brilliant at what he does, and welcomes him to the team. But not everyone is as taken with Holmes and Detective Olshansky, for one, questions Holmes’ methods.
