Ophelia Lovibond? Wow. Ian Fleming's ghost must be kicking himself for never thinking of that name.
Kitty Winter's not half bad either.

Elementary is adding another recurring cast member, Raza Jaffrey. He will "recur as Joan's new boyfriend. His character, Andrew, is described as the 'anti-Sherlock.'"

I've often thought that if they gave Joan Watson a love interest, he should've been named something like Larry Morstan. Although presumably you'd want to save that name for whoever she ends up marrying.

Of course, in this day and age, there's no reason they couldn't just give her a love interest named Mary Morstan...

Why not Marion? We think of it as a female name, but it was originally, and is still used as, a male name.

Marion as a man's name? Don't be ridiculous!

Re: ELEMENTARY - News, Reviews, and Discussion

Man name or not, I wouldn't name anyone after Muldur, he was such a party pooper. Sisko should be given a medal for keeping his cool after standing in the same room with that guy for an entire episode. Besides, given the obvious time travel plot you're suggesting here – without a doubt a man named Shirley implies time travel, and so does Marion – we want to keep the department of temporal investerogations out of it. It's enough that Holmes has MI6 breathing down his neck, Watson is leaving him to join the deadly viper assassination squad, and Mycroft is now cooking for him at Diogenes. DTI will be the straw that broke the camel's back. Unless you do want him to relapse – that would be really mean.

Speaking of time travel, screw all Sherlock/Doctor Who crossover ideas. I do hope the Doctor picks the right Holmes. The Cumberbatch one is way too arrogant to ever deserve a trip on the TARDIS, even if we never get to see the lonely mountain as a result. Jonny Lee Miller's Sherlock is humble, sweet and likeable (something Cumberbatch's can envy) so he more than deserves a real trip if drug-induced ones are not recommended for him. Besides, I am still looking for a good explanation of how exactly he appeared in Emma.

Anyway, I got carried away, I was posting to say that my theory is that Kitty Winter's real name is Jamie Bond.

Marion Morrison approves. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Wayne
