And it's not Lucy Liu (sidekick Joan Watson), who is quietly sitting at a desk with a computer, an iPad, an iPod and a BlackBerry.
It's Clyde, Sherlock and Watson's pet turtle, who's having a diva moment. The creature has stopped moving, so it's quickly replaced by...
London is calling on Thursday night!
Elementary returns for its second season Thursday night (10/9c, CBS), and like the Parks and Recreation premiere on NBC, it will feature a trip to merry old England when Sherlock Holmes (Jonny Lee Miller) and Joan Watson (Lucy Liu) venture across the pond.
Elementary Sneak Peek: Joan is shocked to meet Sherlock's brother
When a former colleague hits a spot of trouble, Sherlock returns to his homeland but then finds himself in trouble when he crosses paths with his brother Mycroft (Rhys Ifans), whom he hasn't spoken to, much less even mentioned to Joan, in years.
