Elementary

Elementary is the contemporary US version of Sherlock Holmes akin but unrelated to the BBC’s Sherlock (the BBC has even warned the makers of Elementary for it not to be a carbon copy of their series).

Sherlock Holmes in Elementary will be played by Jonny Lee Miller.

Just as Sherlock was created by Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat and fellow Who writer Mark Gatiss, Elementary is from someone from the other side of the Doctor Who-Star Trek spectrum with the Elementary pilot written by Star Trek: Voyager writer Robert Doherty.

Doherty is also executive producer alongside Sarah Timberman and Carl Beverly.

This is what Sherlock co-creator Steven Moffat had to say to Digital Spy about Elementary:
“What we did with our Sherlock was just take it from Victorian times into modern day.

“They’ve got three big changes: it’s Sherlock Holmes in America, it’s Sherlock Holmes updated and it’s Sherlock Holmes with a female Watson. I wonder if he’s Sherlock Holmes in any sense other than he’s called Sherlock Holmes?”

“I don’t want it to sound like [co-creator] Mark [Gatiss] and I don’t want other people to try this,” he explained. “We welcome it, but don’t damage the brand.”

In an interview with the Big Finish Magazine, Vortex, writer David Stuart Davies was interviewed about the Big Finish audio adaptation of his Sherlock Holmes story The Tangled Skein in which he made the comment of not doing something ridiculous like making Watson a woman.

The aforementioned issue of Vortex is dated January 2012 and it came before Lucy Liu was cast as the female Watson in Elementary two months later in March.

Quite prophetic remarks from Davies about a female Watson!
