‘Elementary’ Cast Comments on BBC ‘Sherlock’ Comparison
Since its initial announcement earlier this year, CBS’ upcoming Sherlock Holmes-based detective series Elementary has been continuously compared to the similar hit BBC show, Sherlock. Both series feature a modern-day depiction of the legendary detective Sherlock Holmes and his assistant Dr. Watson – but essentially, that’s all the two really have in common.
In the midst of harsh rumors of bad blood between the two shows, as well as the potential of a lawsuit, the cast and producers of Elementary kept their comments on the comparison very amicable when asked about the subject at Comic-Con 2012. In a recent interview with Zap2it,Elementary executive producer Carl Beverly indicated that due to the show’s originality in character and writing style, he has no doubt Elementary will receive positive audience approval.
