Elementary season 3 casting news
Ophelia Lovibond will play Kitty Winter, Sherlock's new protege in Elementary season three...
With Watson out of the Brownstone, and Holmes having agreed to become an MI6 company man, the Elementary season two finale left the crime-solving twosome in disarray (or at least, in enough seeming disarray to make for a dramatic season three reunion).
Part of that upset is likely to come from one Kitty Winter, described as "Sherlock's latest protege" and played by English actress Ophelia Lovibond (Mr Sloane, Titanic: Blood And Steel, Nathan Barley).
A character named Kitty Winter, as Conan Doyle readers will know, featured in later Holmes story The Adventure Of The Illustrious Client as a young woman seeking revenge on a former lover and womanising scoundrel and murderer with a noble daughter in his current grasp. Will that be the case that throws Jonny Lee Miller's Sherlock and Ms Winter together? Our US chums can find out in the season three premiere on Thursday the 30th of October.
