Elementary is an American procedural drama series that presents a contemporary update of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s character Sherlock Holmes. It was created by Robert Doherty and stars Jonny Lee Miller as Sherlock Holmes and Lucy Liu as Dr. Joan Watson. The series premiered on CBS on September 27, 2012. It is set and filmed primarily in New York City. With 24 episodes per season, by the end of season two Jonny Lee Miller became the actor who had portrayed Sherlock Holmes the most in television and/or film.
The show follows Holmes, a recovering drug addict and former consultant to Scotland Yard, as he assists the New York City Police Department in solving crimes. His indifference to police procedure often leads to conflict with Captain Thomas Gregson(Aidan Quinn), although the two still remain respectful of one another. Holmes is accompanied by Dr. Joan Watson (Lucy Liu), who initially acts as his sober companion. She is a former surgeon and was hired by Sherlock’s father to help him in his rehabilitation. They eventually begin to work together on his cases, and she becomes Holmes’ apprentice and then partner. The series also features Holmes’ ongoing conflict with his nemesis Jamie Moriarty (Natalie Dormer). Other supporting roles include Jon Michael Hill as Detective Marcus Bell, Rhys Ifans as Sherlock’s brother, Mycroft Holmes, and John Noble as Sherlock’s father, Morland Holmes.
Before the series premiered, it was met with some criticism given it followed closely on the heels of the BBC’s modern adaptation Sherlock. After the premiere, it was picked up for a full season and later an extra two episodes. The season two premiere was partly filmed on location in London. The series has since been well received by critics, who have praised the performances, writing, novel approach to the source material, and fresh modern twist detailed throughout the show’s New York–based adaptation down to the size of the brownstone first seen in the series premiere.
On March 25, 2016, CBS renewed the series for a fifth season, which premiered on October 2, 2016. On May 13, 2017, CBS renewed the series for a sixth season. On November 29, 2017, CBS ordered an additional eight episodes bringing the sixth season total up to 21. It premiered on April 30, 2018. On May 12, 2018, CBS renewed the series for a 13 episode seventh season. On December 17, 2018, it was announced that the series would conclude after the upcoming seventh season.
The seventh season premiered on May 23, 2019.
Following his fall from grace in London and a stint in rehab, a modern Sherlock Holmes relocates to Manhattan, where his wealthy father forces him to live with a sober companion, Dr. Joan Watson. Formerly a successful surgeon until she lost a patient, Watson views her current job as another opportunity to help people. However, Sherlock is nothing like her previous clients. He informs her that none of her expertise as an addiction specialist applies to him and that he has devised his own post-rehab regimen — resuming his work as a police consultant in New York City. Watson has no choice but to accompany her mercurial new charge on his jobs.
Over time, Sherlock finds her medical background helpful, and Watson realizes she has a talent for investigation. Sherlock’s police contact, Captain Thomas Gregson, knows from previous experience working with Scotland Yard that Sherlock is brilliant at solving cases and welcomes him as part of the team. The investigative group also includes Detective Marcus Bell, an investigator with sharp intuition and intimidating interrogation skills. Although initially skeptical of Holmes and his unorthodox methods, Bell begins to recognize Sherlock as an asset to their investigations.
- Jonny Lee Miller as Sherlock Holmes: A former Scotland Yard consultant who now lives in New York City after completing drug rehabilitation for addiction-related problems. Holmes is a deductive genius with a variety of unusual interests and enthusiasms that assist him in his investigations. Feeling that the more interesting criminal cases are in America, he stays in New York. He contacts an old associate, Captain Thomas Gregson of the NYPD, to resume his previous work as a consulting detective. He is forced by his father to live with Dr. Joan Watson, his “sober companion” who provides him with aftercare. Miller’s Holmes displays many canonicalaspects of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s character, while his familial relations, especially his resentment for his father, have been added into his narrative. In between seasons two and three, Sherlock spent eight months in Britain working for MI-6. He returned to New York in “Enough Nemesis to Go Around” with a new protégé, Kitty Winter. At the conclusion of season three, Holmes suffers a relapse, but his father’s connections allow him to resume working for the NYPD. In Season 4, it is revealed in mid-season that his mother, May Holmes, was also an opiate addict like him. In the last few episodes of the fifth season, he is shown suffering from unexplained headaches and a lack of concentration, as well as hallucinating a woman who is based on his mother; the sixth season premiere reveals that he is suffering from post-concussion syndrome, requiring him to be put on a carefully balanced system of medication as well as taking on assorted mental activities to try and help his brain heal, albeit hampered by Sherlock’s ‘need’ to use his work to escape his past addictions. With 24 episodes per season, by the end of season two Jonny Lee Miller became the actor who had portrayed Sherlock Holmes the most in television and/or film beating Jeremy Brett with forty-one television episodes and Eille Norwood with forty-seven silent films.
- Lucy Liu as Dr. Joan Watson (née Yun): Holmes’ sober companion. Watson was a successful surgeon, which adds to her complement of skills. She comes to Holmes when she is hired by his father as his sober companion, to help him remain abstinent after his release from rehabilitation. After her contracted time is finished, she remains on after lying to Holmes, telling him that his father had retained her services. He comes to rely on her input and grows to trust her as she helps him come to terms with his life after addiction. After a while, Holmes reveals that he found out that she was no longer being paid to stay as a companion. He offers her a position as an apprentice, telling her how much she means to him and how she helps him to focus. Watson accepts and starts her training as a detective with Holmes. After Sherlock left for London, Joan became the go-to consulting detective for the 11th Precinct, while also taking on more traditional private investigator-type cases that Sherlock eschews. Despite this, the two resumed working together after Holmes returned to New York, albeit with Joan taking on the occasional independent case away from Holmes. Joan has a brother Oren and a half-sister Lin Wen (née Yun). Joan and her sister have the same father, but different mothers.
- Aidan Quinn as Captain Thomas “Tommy” Gregson:[note 1] The captain of the New York City Police Department’s 11th Precinct. He was previously assigned to Scotland Yard to observe their Counter-Terrorism Bureau, where he crossed paths with Sherlock and was impressed with his work. He genuinely likes Holmes, and the two have a mutual respect for each other, though he admits that Sherlock is a “pain in the ass”. In season 2, Gregson separated from his wife of over twenty years, Cheryl, and they are divorced by season 3. In “Rip Off” (season 3, episode 5), it is revealed that his daughter, Hannah (Liza J. Bennett), is an ambitious patrol officer with the 15th Precinct; by season 6, Hannah has been promoted to Sergeant. In “Absconded” (season 3, episode 23), Gregson is offered a promotion to Deputy Chief due to the good work of his unit, but despite hints that some higher-ups wanted him to accept the offer, he decided to remain as he valued his current role and ability to interact with people more than the possibilities offered by the promotion. It is also mentioned in that episode that he served at the 14th Precinct as a newly promoted Detective and was made head of the Major Case Squad at age 40. In Season Four, it is revealed mid-season that Gregson is now dating Paige Cowen, a former detective who quit after her unit was accused of taking bribes; they briefly break up after Joan runs into them at a restaurant, as Paige claims she does not want people to think ill of Gregson even if she was not involved in her unit’s actions, but Joan soon learns that Paige actually has multiple sclerosis, and convinces Gregson to give the relationship another chance. He is a recipient of the U.S. Flag Bar, World Trade Center Bar, NYPD Medal of Honor, NYPD Medal for Valor, and the NYPD 170th Commemorative Breast Bar.
- Jon Michael Hill as Detective First Grade Marcus Bell: A junior officer with the 11th Precinct with whom Holmes and Watson often work. While initially against the idea of getting help from Sherlock, he comes to realize Sherlock’s talent as a detective and readily takes advice from him. He was briefly reassigned to an observational role in Season Two after sustaining a potentially serious shoulder injury due to a hostile witness Holmes had questioned earlier, but a confrontation with Holmes helped Bell get over the psychological issues that were hindering his recovery and he has since returned to his old role. In season 4, Marcus considers taking the Sergeant’s exam, not necessarily for the work or to rise up the ranks of the NYPD, but for the increase in paycheck to help support his ailing mother. In season 6, Marcus is headhunted by the United States Marshals Service and he decides to put in an application for transfer upon completing his Master’s degree in six months. He is a recipient of the U.S. Flag Bar, NYPD Excellent Police Duty, and the NYPD 170th Commemorative Breast Bar.
- John Noble as Morland Holmes (season 4; guest, season 6): Sherlock’s father who arrives in New York after Sherlock has a relapse. He works as an eminent business consultant, making arrangements for various companies to achieve their goals regardless of what they might be, with Sherlock describing him as a ‘neutral’ party in that he has no concern about the consequences of his clients’ goals so long as they are achieved. He has decided to stay in New York for unknown long-term reasons involving Sherlock, with Joan speculating from independent research that he suffered serious stomach damage in a failed attempt to murder him two years ago, and may believe that he is being targeted again. With a view to resolving the threat, at the end of Season 4, he takes over the leadership of Moriarty’s organization which will help him to dismantle the group and guarantee safety of his son and Joan from further harm.
- Nelsan Ellis as Shinwell Johnson (season 5): A previous patient of Dr. Watson and an ex-convict and gang member for the SBK (South Bronx Killas). He and Watson became acquainted once more when he was released from prison and was placed on probation. During his time on probation, Watson helped him settle back into his life outside of prison while also assisting him in his attempt to build a relationship with his daughter. He was briefly an unofficial informant for an FBI agent and is now an official informant for the Bronx Gang Squad. His relationship with Sherlock and Joan faltered when Sherlock discovered that Shinwell was responsible for the death of a friend of his during his original time in the SBK, but Shinwell wrote a confession for this crime as he was preparing to bring down the gang, only to be killed by another member of the SBK.
- Desmond Harrington as Michael Rowan (season 6): A recovering addict who becomes impressed with Sherlock’s methods of dealing with his addiction and becomes his friend and leaning post as he tackles a staggering health issue. He is later revealed to be a murderer after burying a woman’s body in an unknown location; eventually, he is revealed as a serial killer, who has killed an estimate of more than a dozen women in multiple states, and has credited Sherlock with convincing him to focus on his “work” (a.k.a. killing) in order to kick his heroin addiction. When Holmes’ health problems diminish his investigative abilities, Michael leaves New York for a while to allow him to recover. He returns near the end of the season where, after he is revealed to have murdered the addict husband of one of his friends years earlier, he attacks Joan, only to flee after being seriously wounded, and is later found murdered, later revealed to have been by Gregson’s daughter Hannah as retaliation for Michael’s earlier murder of her roommate.
- James Frain as Odin Reichenbach (season 7): A well-renowned tech mogul that Sherlock and Joan meet after he hires them to find who made a kidnapping threat against his niece. It is soon learned that he made up the entire claim as a way to test the two detectives, believing that he had found kindred spirits within them due to their willingness to go the distance to protect the innocent, and was indirectly responsible for triggering the events that led to Captain Gregson’s shooting at the start of the season. Odin later reveals to Holmes his intention to use his infinite resources, both online and offline, in order to create a system that prevents future crimes by flushing out the would-be-perpetrators and having them killed before they can carry out their offenses.
- Ophelia Lovibond as Kitty Winter: Sherlock’s newest protégée whom he brought with him from London after leaving MI6. She was initially tasked with spying on Watson until she was discovered. Sherlock tends to be strict with her, but admires her detective skills. Kitty’s real name is unknown as she was kidnapped and raped in London prior to meeting Sherlock and she had changed her name in an effort to forget it. Her character is based on Kitty Winter in Doyle’s “The Adventure of the Illustrious Client”. After confronting and disfiguring her rapist, she decided she needed to leave the United States to avoid possible arrest, and to go somewhere she could use the skills that Sherlock and Watson had taught her.
- Ato Essandoh as Alfredo Llamosa: Sherlock’s NA sponsor who is a recovering addict himself. Alfredo is also reformed from a life of crime stealing cars. He is now paid by various car companies to test their cars’ security systems, and he occasionally lets Sherlock try out his own skills on them. Alfredo is one of Sherlock’s few real friends, but is not hesitant to criticize him and pushes him to continue his rehab regimen, including becoming a sponsor himself. He also teaches Joan how to bypass automotive security. Holmes ‘fired’ Alfredo as his sponsor so that he could help Alfredo as a friend.
- Rhys Ifans as Mycroft Holmes: Sherlock’s older brother who still lives in London. He and Sherlock had a very bitter relationship in the past, but Mycroft is taking steps to reconcile with his brother, and becomes good friends with Joan. He owns a chain of restaurants and is an excellent cook. It is later revealed that Mycroft is in the employ of MI6, and it becomes necessary for Mycroft to fake his death in “The Grand Experiment”, an act that Holmes felt represented a lack of faith in Holmes to find another solution to the current dilemma. Mycroft is currently confirmed to be dead due to an aneurysm. His last known location was New Zealand and Sherlock briefly grieves for him when he knows of this. He regrets not able to make up with his brother before his death.
- Natalie Dormer as Irene Adler/Jamie Moriarty: As Irene, she is Sherlock’s former lover, while in her true identity as Moriarty she is a criminal mastermind who romanced Sherlock — and then faked Irene’s death — to draw his investigations away from her criminal activities. It was her supposed death as Irene that caused Sherlock’s already established drug use to escalate. Despite Sherlock discovering her true identity, and her subsequent imprisonment, the two continue to have conflicting feelings for each other — Holmes noting during a conversation with Bell that “the love of [his] life is an unrepentant homicidal maniac” — and great mutual respect for each other’s intellectual powers. She has also gained an amount of respect for Joan, as the latter’s ability to fool her is what got her arrested; when Joan’s life is threatened by drug kingpin Elana March, she arranges the criminal’s death in her cell. At the end of Season Four, Morland Holmes takes over her organization with the goal of dismantling it from the inside to prevent its resources being used against his son and Joan.
- Sean Pertwee as Gareth Lestrade: Sherlock’s British colleague and rival. While Sherlock was based in London, he worked with Lestrade, who was then a member of the Metropolitan Police. Lestrade took credit for solving cases that were actually solved by Sherlock. Lestrade is clearly not in Sherlock’s league, but he is a skilled — if overzealous and impulsive — detective.
- Candis Cayne as Ms. Hudson: An expert in Ancient Greek who essentially makes a living as a kept woman and muse for various wealthy men; Sherlock allows her to stay at the brownstone after a breakup, and she subsequently agrees to clean for them once a week as a source of income. Sherlock initially attempts to make Joan pay for the work as she complained about his messiness but she refuses and they settle on sharing the expense. Seen in single episodes in each of the first three seasons (episodes 19, 45, 55), but mentioned in numerous others through season four.
- Betty Gilpin as Fiona “Mittens” Helbron: a brilliant software engineer for a technology company called Pentillion, who also is known as ‘Mittens’ in the hacker community. She is on the autism spectrum, and is a cat lover (hence her hacker moniker). She is briefly considered a suspect in one case (episode 81) but later assists Holmes and Watson in their investigation. She later contacts Watson for assistance in another matter, and begins a romantic relationship with Holmes (episodes 84 and 90).
- Jordan Gelber as Dr. Eugene Hawes, M.E.: New York City medical examiner that provides Sherlock and Watson with details relating to murders that cross paths with their investigations. He and Sherlock are regular chess partners (“the first Thursday of the month” is mentioned in the episode “Hounded”). After he is almost killed when a bomb is detonated in the city morgue (“Down Where the Dead Delight”), he develops an addiction to drugs. After noticing the indicators, Sherlock implores him to get him some help (“Hounded”). He takes a leave of absence to recover, but returns to active duty as the M.E. in the Season 5 episode “Ill Tidings”
Elementary often has characters who are loosely based on characters from the original Sherlock Holmes stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
- Vinnie Jones as Sebastian Moran: also known as “M”, Moran was originally thought to be a serial killer whom Holmes believed had murdered Irene Adler. In actuality he was a former Royal Marine turned hired assassin, and was paid by Jamie Moriarty. In the Conan Doyle stories Moran was an ex-army colonel and the right-hand man of Professor James Moriarty. He was an excellent marksman and carried out assassinations for Moriarty with a specially built silent air rifle that fired revolver bullets, whereas the Moran in Elementary killed his targets by first hanging them upside down with a home made tripod device before then slitting their throat. (“M.”, “A Landmark Story”)
- Freda Foh Shen as Mary Watson: in Elementary Mary is the mother of Joan Watson, whereas in the Conan Doyle stories Mary is the wife of Dr. Watson. (“The Leviathan”, “T-Bone And The Iceman”)
- David Mogentale as Charles Augustus Milverton: Milverton extorted money from the families of rape victims, which is similar to the character in the Conan Doyle stories, who is described as “the king of the blackmailers”. Both versions of the character are killed in front of Holmes who had broken into his house in order to destroy his blackmail materials. (“Dead Man’s Switch”)
- Tim McMullan as DCI Hopkins: Hopkins is a Detective Chief Inspector at New Scotland Yard who brings Holmes to London to find Gareth Lestrade. In the Conan Doyle stories his full name is Stanley Hopkins and he is also a Scotland Yard detective who works with Holmes. (“Step Nine”)
- Langdale Pike: is a CCTV observer at Trafalgar Square. In the Conan Doyle stories Pike is a celebrated gossipmonger whose columns are published in numerous magazines and newspapers. Both versions of the character are unseen and help Holmes learn the names of people involved in the case. (“Step Nine”)
- Stuart Townsend as Del Gruner — Adelbert Gruner (“The Illustrious Client”, “The One that Got Away”)
A television show (often simply TV show) is any content produced for broadcast via over-the-air, satellite, cable, or internet and typically viewed on a television set, excluding breaking news, advertisements, or trailers that are typically placed between shows. Television shows are most often scheduled well ahead of time and appear on electronic guides or other TV listings.
A television show might also be called a television program (British English: programme), especially if it lacks a narrative structure. A television series is usually released in episodes that follow a narrative, and are usually divided into seasons (US and Canada) or series (UK) — yearly or semiannual sets of new episodes. A show with a limited number of episodes may be called a miniseries, serial, or limited series. A one-time show may be called a “special”. A television film (“made-for-TV movie” or “television movie”) is a film that is initially broadcast on television rather than released in theaters or direct-to-video.
Television shows can be viewed as they are broadcast in real time (live), be recorded on home video or a digital video recorder for later viewing, or be viewed on demand via a set-top box or streamed over the internet.
Streaming television (streaming TV or internet television) is the digital distribution of television content, such as TV shows, as streaming video delivered over the Internet. Streaming TV stands in contrast to dedicated terrestrial television delivered by over-the-airaerial systems, cable television, and/or satellite television systems.
Live streaming refers to online streaming media simultaneously recorded and broadcast in real time. It is often referred to simply as streaming, however this abbreviated term is ambiguous due to the fact that “streaming” may refer to any media delivered and played back simultaneously without requiring a completely downloaded file. Non-live media such as video-on-demand and YouTubevideos are technically streamed, but not live streamed.
Live stream services encompass a wide variety of topics, from social media to video games. Platforms such as Facebook Live, Periscope, Kuaishou, and 17 include the streaming of scheduled promotions and celebrity events as well as streaming between users, as in videotelephony. Sites such as Twitch.tv have become popular outlets for watching people play video games, such as in eSports, Let’s Play-style gaming, or speedrunning.
User interaction via chat rooms forms a major component of live streaming. Platforms often include the ability to talk to the broadcaster or participate in conversations in chat. An extreme example of viewer interfacing is the social experiment Twitch Plays Pokémon, where viewers collaborate to complete Pokémon games by typing in commands that correspond to controller inputs.
Television is one of the major mass media of the United States. As of 2011, household ownership of television sets in the country is 96.7%, with approximately 114,200,000 American households owning at least one television set as of August 2013. The majority of households have more than one set. The peak ownership percentage of households with at least one television set occurred during the 1996–97 season, with 98.4% ownership.
Streaming television (streaming TV or internet television) is the digital distribution of television content, such as TV shows, as streaming video delivered over the Internet. Streaming TV stands in contrast to dedicated terrestrial television delivered by over-the-air aerial systems, cable television, and/or satellite television systems.
The mid 2000s were the beginning of television programs becoming available via the Internet. iTunes began offering select television programs and series in 2005, available for download after direct payment. The video-sharing site YouTube also launched in 2005 allowing users to share illegally posted television programs. A few years later television networks and other independent services began creating sites where shows and programs could be streamed online. Amazon Video began in the United States as Amazon Unbox in 2006, but did not launch worldwide until 2016. Netflix, a website originally created for DVD rentals and sales began providing streaming content in 2007. In 2008 Hulu, owned by NBC and Fox, was launched, followed by tv.com in 2009 and owned by CBS. Digital media players also began to become available to the public during this time. The first generation Apple TV was released in 2007 and in 2008 the first generation Roku streaming device was announced. Amazon’s version of a digital media player, Amazon Fire TV, was not offered to the public until 2014. These digital media players have continued to be updated and new generations released. Access to television programming has evolved from computer and television access, to also include mobile devices such as smartphones and tablet computers. Apps for mobile devices started to become available via app stores in 2008. These mobile apps allow users to view content on mobile devices that support the apps. In 2017 YouTube launched YouTube TV, a streaming service that allows users to watch live television programs from popular cable or network channels, and record shows to stream anywhere, anytime. After 2010 traditional cable and satellite television providers began to offer services such as Sling TV, owned by Dish Network, which was unveiled in January 2015. DirecTV, another satellite television provider launched their own streaming service, DirecTV Now, in 2016. Smart TVs took over the television market after 2010. As of 2015 smart TVs are the only type of middle to high-end television being produced. As of 2017, 28% of US adults cite streaming services as their main means for watching television, and 61% of those ages 18 to 29 cite it as their main method. As of 2018, Netflix is the world’s largest streaming TV network and also the world’s largest Internet media and entertainment company with 117 million paid subscribers, and by revenue and market cap
Stream quality refers to the quality of the image and audio transferred from the servers of the distributor to the user’s home screen. Higher-quality video such as video in high definition (720p+) requires higher bandwidth and faster connection speeds. The generally accepted kbit/s download rate needed to stream high-definition video that has been encoded with H.264 is 3500 kbit/s, whereas standard-definition television can range from 500 to 1500 kbit/s depending on the resolution on screen. In the UK, the BBC iPlayer deals with the largest amount of traffic yet it offers HD content along with SD content. As more people have gotten broadband connections which can deal with streaming HD video over the Internet, the BBC iPlayer has tried to keep up with demand and pace. However, as streaming HD video takes around 1.5 GB of data per hour of video the BBC has had to invest a lot of money collected from License Fee payers to implement this on a large scale.
