Elementary on CBSElementary Sherlock Holmes, Irene Adler and Moriarty Teasers



Here’s the latest scoop on Elementary‘s love/hate triangle, from Executive Producer, Rob Doherty.



TV Line’s Vlada Gelman gathered the Elementary Scoop from the TCA’s on January 12th, 2013:

• Sherlock’s infamous adversary, Moriarty, is “still coming,” teased Doherty. “We have that to look forward to as we move into the back end of the season.” The EP said he wants “to dollop Moriarty out appropriately,” and following last Thursday’s big mythology reveals, “I foresee us getting a bit more serialized than we have been as we get into the end run for this season.” As for whether the Big Bad will be stunt-cast, Doherty admitted that “it’s tricky business” trying to do so without the news leaking out ahead of the episode. “At the end of the day, we want a tremendous actor,” he added. “It’s probably in the immediate future, but we have a few more weeks before we have to sweat that.”


• Is Irene Adler really dead? “She’s alive in my heart,” replied Doherty. “She’s an important element of Sherlock’s backstory. I’d love to have a face to that name. We’ve talked about doing a flashback show [to] see why Sherlock would be drawn to this particular women — she’s got to be pretty unique — so we definitely want to meet her. In that sense, you will see a living, breathing actress reading lines as Irene [in flashback].”


• Scottish actor John Hannah (Damages, Spartacus: Vengeance) will be introduced as Sherlock’s old dealer from London. “The window into Sherlock and his experience in London will be opened that much wider,” Doherty previewed.



Elementary returns to CBS on Thursday, January 31st, 2013, with episode 1×13, The Red Team. Elementary 1×14 “The Deductionist” will air in a special time slot, after The Super Bowl, on Sunday, February 3rd, 2013.
