Moriarty would have had to have found Irene's sibling to make an accurate bloodpool... Or broken into where ever her medical records were to switch them or fixed the result of the DNA test confirming her identity.

Maybe we should have a separate thread for discussing Elementary, but for the moment...

Given Mr. Holmes's intelligence, he may have simply chosen to adjust the spelling for Watson's ease of comprehension. Also the American spelling is one letter shorter and thus slightly more efficient to type.


But then, there was one thought that came to me;
Interesting thought, but of course the M most likely stands for Mycroft. Either this version of the show has changed the relationship from fraternal to parental, or we'll discover that Holmes's older brother is acting in loco parentis for some reason.

I was just thinking on similar lines (and posting my thoughts on another BBS). I wondered if

Yes, there should be a separate thread for Elementary. I started this as a Sherlock thread until Christopher changed the subject.

I tried one more episode of Elementary since people claimed the pilot was weak.
After a second viewing my opinion isn't any different. A lukewarm series with a good lead in Jonny Lee Miller. I won't be giving it a third chance. It's just doesn't grab you the way Sherlock does. It's too "American CSI-ish." There's nothing to captivate you about the characters and Liu is unremarkable. There were only a dozen actresses who would have made a half decent lead.

Watching the new Elementary.

A new villain, possibly recurring, on the scene who has a history with Holmes.

His name is M.

The casting of M. is delightfully odd.
should that be spoiler coded, saying we are discussing a UK TV show and S1 Part 2 Of Elementary has yet to air in the UK.

Holmes without Moriarty is like sex without costumes.

It's inevitable.

The next four posts after mine are the buggers that blew away any hint of obfuscation.

Tell that to Conan-Doyle, who wrote all but three of his Holmes stories without even a mention of Moriarty.

But yes, screen Holmes without Moriarty is never going to happen.

Re: Anyone familiar with the BBC version of Sherlock Holmes? (spoiler

I wondered if that was true truism.

So I tested the IMDB page of the adventures of Shirley Holmes just to check, if there wasn't some girl teen nemesis of Sherlock's Canadian Great grand daughter?

No Moriarty.

However.

There is a recurring character called "Molly Hardy".
