UPDATED: Elementary Trailer – Jonny Lee Miller as Sherlock Holmes and Lucy Liu as Watson


This is the first official photo from the new CBS Sherlock Holmes show, Elementary. There have been on-set photos, but this gives us the first glimpse of the vibe they are going for.

Jonny Lee Miller (Trainspotting, Dexter, Eli Stone) will be playing the role of Sherlock Holmes, an eccentric Brit Sherlock Holmes is a former consultant to Scotland Yard whose addiction problems led him to a rehab center in New York City. Lucy Liu (Ally McBeal, Charlie’s Angels) will be playing the role of Joan Watson, a former surgeon who lost her license after a patient died while consulting for the New York Police Department. The two live together in an apartment in Brooklyn, New York.

Aidan Quinn will be playing Captain Gregson.


Now we have a trailer for the show which shows some footage and interviews with those involved.

It does seem a bit different to the BBC Sherlock show. Jonny Lee Miller’s Holmes seems to be a bit more human in places. I’ve always liked Lucy Liu and having a female Watson may mix things up a bit.
