[ # ] Elementary is having a Super Bowl of a season!
February 3rd, 2013 under CBS


Elementary is the #1 new show of the season and so far it is has only been scoring touchdowns. Not only was the Thursday night drama that airs at 10 picked up for a full season, CBS also ordered an addition episode. And the good news doesn’t stop there, tonight CBS gave the show its biggest vote of confidence because Sherlock is going to solve a crime after the Super Bowl. Each year only one show gets that accolade and this year it belongs to Elementary!
So how does show creator Rob Doherty feel about the honor? Here is what he said recently at the CBS Winter Press Day, “It’s an honor; it’s a privilege; it’s an incredible opportunity to expose the show to people who may not have checked it out yet. And so we tried to take all that into consideration as we developed the story that we felt, you know, not only was a good example of what the show can do, but something that our regular audience would you know, would really have fun with as well.”
So once you are hooked on the show, if you are not already, what do you have to look forward to:

Moriaty – Doherty says he is coming, but as of now no one has been cast in the role and he explained why. He said, “You know, it’s tricky business. We cannot wait to get more serious about Moriarty. In this day and age, it’s so hard to stunt it’s so hard it’s virtually impossible to stunt a role and not have everyone in the universe know that this person is coming and will be revealed as this character. So we’re approaching it very carefully and as quietly as we can. At the end of the day, we want a tremendous actor, but again, it’s certainly it’s less fun for me if all of you know who it is and when they’ll arrive and what they’ll be doing. But it’s a problem in the immediate future, but at least not we have a few more weeks, I think, before we have to sweat that.”

Irene Adler – Here is what Doherty said about her, “Irene is somebody what I don’t like about the character of Irene right now is really she’s a name. She’s an important element of Sherlock’s backstory, especially our Sherlock. I’d love to have a face to that name. And we’ve talked, in a very roundabout way, about maybe doing a flashback show where we can see a little bit more of why would someone like our Sherlock be drawn to this particular woman? What is it about her that would that he would be attracted to? She’s got to be pretty unique. So we definitely want to meet her. And so in that sense, you will see a living, breathing actress reading lines and portraying Irene.”

What’s next the next step for Sherlock and Watson’s relationship? – Doherty said, “We’ve always planned to get to a point in the season where we formalized the relationship. I mean, you know, the sober companionship was a starting point. It was important to the series, and it gave — you know, it gave Watson a real purpose to be in the life of Holmes. But you can’t do that for six, seven, eight years. And so we don’t plan to. You know, as we — again, as we get into this end run, as we wrap up this season, we want to redefine that relationship. I mean, I think at this point it’s fairly clear that there’s — you know, there’s a great deal of respect between the two of them. You know, I feel like a powerful friendship has — you know, has developed. It’s not that may not be the term that either would use to describe you know, either character would use to describe that relationship, but it’s a friendship. And, yet you, know, my sense of Sherlock is that everything many things need to be defined in a more formal way. So I think that as he recognizes the sober companion side of things, or the sober companion side of Joan is sort of falling away, he’ll want to make her more appropriate, you know, more of an associate, more of a partner, more of somebody he can lean on and utilize in an investigative way.”
