Telemystery: CBS Casts Lucy Liu as Watson in Elementary

Sherlock Holmes

A couple of weeks ago we learned that CBS had cast Jonny Lee Miller as Sherlock Holmes in the pilot of Elementary, its contemporary adaptation of the stories by Arthur Conan Doyle set in New York City.

Now we're learning that the Watson character will be played by Lucy Liu … though presumably under a different name! (Dr. Joan Watson … or so we believe.)

CBS is clearly going out of its way to differentiate this potential series from Sherlock, the BBC version, which recently completed its second season in the UK — we'll see it here in the US this May — and has been renewed for a third season.
