More Details Of Lucy Liu’s Joan Watson And Jonny Lee Miller’s Sherlock As Per Elementary

Following up on TV Line’s scoop, sister site Deadline provided more details of the Watson character Lucy Liu will be playing in the US, modern-day Sherlock Holmes show, Elementary – as well as a couple of bits and pieces on how they’ve envisioned Holmes himself.

…eccentric Brit Sherlock Holmes, a former consultant to Scotland Yard whose addiction problems led him to a rehab center in New York City. Just out of rehab, Holmes now lives in Brooklyn with “sober companion” Joan Watson, a former surgeon who lost her license after a patient died, while consulting for the NYPD.

Seems like a big change to make Holmes a recovering addict as opposed to, you know, a current addict, but we’ll see.

Liu apparently chose this role over another pilot. I’d be interested to know which one. Her availability for either, however, seems to make a pretty definitive statement about her current run on Southland.

Now, let’s see if Liu and Miller generate as much slash fic as Cumberbatch and Freeman. Doesn’t seem likely.
