EW’s Fall TV Preview: Elementary (Season 3)
Eight months after Sherlock Holmes’ departed to work for MI6 in London, Joan Watson has found herself a new apartment—and a new man named Andrew (Raza Jaffrey).
"Andrew is part of a larger plan to really ground Joan." — RD
But Watson’s not the only half of the crime-solving duo who’s re-coupled—Sherlock returns with a new protégé named Kitty Winter (Ophelia Lovibond), whom creator/Executive Producer Rob Doherty describes as having “very rough edges.” Liu admits, “Kitty comes on board, and it does create a little bit of tension.”
"[The new dynamic] elevates their relationship. Sometimes you don’t really get perspective on something until you step away from it." — LL
Adds Doherty, “Things will be a little frosty at first,” but Holmes and Watson “each have a pull toward the other. That mutual gravitational pull is something we’ll certainly start to see again over through the course of the season. It’s the lifeblood of the show.”
