Robert Downey Jr. and Benedict Cumberbatch have both found success playing famed detective Sherlock Holmes and now it’s Jonny Lee Miller’s turn to fill the shoes of the famed literary sleuth. Transported from Victorian London to modern day New York City, Miller’s Sherlock is a former Scotland Yard consultant who travels to the US to treat a drug addiction. After a stint in rehab, he’s paired with “sober companion” Dr. Joan Watson, played by Lucy Liu. The pair match wits to solve the NYPD’s most puzzling cases. This isn’t your parents’ Sherlock Holmes to be sure – critics are comparing it to CBS’ popular series The Mentalist. It’s no mystery that the shows leads are quite appealing, so we’re staying on the case of this promising new drama.
