First trailer for Elementary, CBS' modern-day Sherlock Holmes

News Simon Brew

Get your first proper look at Elementary, CBS' modern day take on Sherlock Holmes...

We're probably not going out on a limb here to suggest that most people are really quite cynical regarding CBS' decision to make a modern-day take on Sherlock Holmes in the shape of Elementary. The main reason? Well, Steven Moffat, Mark Gatiss and Sue Vertue have done a terrific job of doing just that with the BBC's Sherlock.

Elementary? Well, it seems that CBS first tried to do a US remake of Sherlock, before opting to go off in their own direction. They've got high standards to live up to.

The direction that Elementary is taking sees the show set in New York, and includes Jonny Lee Miller as Sherlock and Lucy Liu as, er, Watson. And after a few pictures and so forth, we've now got a trailer of the show in action. Take a look right here...
