I think that Sherlock
is defined not merely as "Holmes in the 21st century," but primarily as "Holmes as told by Steven Moffat (with Mark Gatiss)." It's very much a product of Moffat's distinct, quirky, frenetic style, as also seen in his Jekyll
and Doctor Who
. So I don't expect Elementary
to be even remotely in the same vein as Sherlock
. It will probably be far more sedate and in the vein of your usual CBS crime procedural with an eccentric-genius lead.
