Blast Off #13: ‘Elementary’ Vs. BBC’s ‘Sherlock’
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s beloved Sherlock Holmes is getting a facelift in a major way this fall in the new series Elementary, starring Jonny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu, on CBS.
But will Sir Doyle be rolling in his grave when he sees the new series? In the 13th Team Focus Blast Off, BuzzFocus Community Manager Ernie Estrella and I discuss the latest news on Elementary, the CBS modernization of the Sherlock Holmes saga, which will be set in New York City. In the wake of the current BBC Sherlock series, starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, we look at key differences between Sherlock and Elementary – most notably Liu as Watson. We also explore all the things that made Sherlock great and what pitfalls showrunner Rob Doherty should avoid in order to reach the same success as Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat.
Listen to the latest Team Focus Blast Off and let us know your thoughts on CBS’ Elementary, slated for a Fall 2012 premiere, Vs. BBC’s Sherlock, currently heading into its third season.
