Oh and a little known actor called Patrick Stewart.
He's probably busy making another Star Wars film.

McKellen playing Holmes and Stewart playing Holmes's father within a year of each other? That'd be... hmm. Something.

How about Malcolm McDowell? He strikes me as having a quality in common with Jonny Lee Miller, enough that they could plausibly be related. His only previous Holmesian role is an undistinguished one, the voice of Professor Moriarity (sic) in 2010's Tom and Jerry Meet Sherlock Holmes (opposite Michael York and John Rhys-Davies as Holmes and Watson, impressively enough), but he was also H.G. Wells in Time After Time, which was scripted and directed by Nicholas Meyer of The Seven Per Cent Solution.

Here's another idea for Holmes' father -- Tim Pigott-Smith.

He has an interesting Sherlock Holmes connection. He wrote two childrens books about the Baker Street Irregulars.

I'm not familiar enough with Pigott-Smith to have an opinion. He's done a few things I've seen, but mostly long-ago stuff like '70s Doctor Who and the original Clash of the Titans.

I was thinking Peter Stormare. He loves doing American television, and he looks almost like a cross between Miller and Ifans.

There is, of course, the fact that he and Ifans are only 12 years apart in age. But Hollywood has never cared much about that.

Do you think in this Sherlock, Sherlock and Mycroft had different mothers? They never talk about their mother or a mother in fact.

There could be something tragic in that story, hence a reason not to bring her up.

I don't believe the Canon Holmes ever referred to either parent. For that matter, neither did Canon Watson.

Re: ELEMENTARY - News, Reviews, and Discussion

There was that bit in Sherlock last season where Sherlock's parents randomly showed up for a scene or two and turned out to be extremely ordinary people, not at all what you'd expect Sherlock and Mycroft Holmes's parents to have been like. (And they were played by Benedict Cumberbatch's real parents, both actors themselves -- including Wanda Ventham, who played three different roles in Doctor Who and was a recurring lead in UFO.)

Re: ELEMENTARY - News, Reviews, and Discussion

I guess I'm in the minority here, but I wasn't a big fan of the Kitty arc and was relieved to see she wasn't going to stick around for the whole season. I didn't necessarily dislike her character, I just felt that her presence detracted from the show overall and I kept wishing they'd get back to the regular Holmes-Watson dynamic instead of having this third wheel around.

So sad to see Sherlock's state at the end of this episode. I wonder who his father will be played by and how that mysterious relationship will play out. I also hope that they use flashbacks to show us what happened in those three days between Sherlock's relapse and when Joan was talking to him on the roof.
