It's the moment Sherlock Holmes fans have been waiting for since the inception of Elementary: Moriarty has arrived!
Sherlock Holmes' (Jonny Lee Miller) greatest foe made his first appearance, sort of, last week after calling Sherlock for a long overdue chat — which is an understatement. Moriarty was apparently behind the death of Sherlock's only love Irene Adler (Natalie Dormer), which sent the private eye into a drug-induced downward spiral. Heading into Thursday's episode (10/9c, CBS) and the drama's first season finale next week, TVGuide.com hit up executive producer Rob Doherty to find out the ramifications of Moriarty's introduction and what this means for Irene Adler's arrival on the show...
What happens when Watson's employment as Sherlock's sober companion runs out?
CBS' Elementary will face that exact conundrum soon since Watson (Lucy Liu) was only said to be employed by Sherlock's (Jonny Lee Miller) father for six weeks. Sure, it's a television show centered around these two characters, so the writers will find a way to keep them together, but that raises the question: How? To find out and get scoop on their upcoming post-Super Bowl slot, TVGuide.com turned to executive producer Rob Doherty:
Janet Montgomery for Irene Adler!
That was our first reaction upon hearing of Made in Jersey's quick demise. But Irene Adler isn't the only Sherlock Holmes character we'd love to see pop up on CBS' Elementary, in which Jonny Lee Miller stars as the titular sleuth, now a recovering addict and consultant for the NYPD whose Watson (Lucy Liu) is Sherlock's "sober companion."
Lisa Edelstein and Callie Throne have landed guest-starring roles on CBS' Sherlock Holmes adaptation Elementary, TVGuide.com has confirmed...
On a night that's hardly starved for appealing programming, two of the season's most enjoyable and intriguing pilots make their bow.
First, the underdog: ABC's Last Resort (8/7c), an electrifying military-gone-amok thriller that bridges the macho hardware of Tom Clancy with the suspense of paranoid Cold War classics from the '60s like Fail Safe and Seven Days in May. (Look them up if you've never seen them.) This series is like nothing else on network TV, which is why one's first impulse is to pray for its survival. It's also airing in what has become one of ABC's more treacherous time periods, and beyond the fact that there are very attractive people in the cast (starting with Felicity alum Scott Speedman) and the story is heavily serialized, it has nearly nothing in common tonally with the night's sudsy anchor, Grey's Anatomy.
