The first set pictures from the filming of Elementary have begun to find their way online. The pictures give us an early glimpse of what to expect from Miller’s Sherlock Holmes, Liu’s Joan Watson and more!

Take a look at the images below!

Image source: Fire and Whisper Tumblr

Interestingly, Elementary’s Holmes seems to be wearing a similar coat-and-scarf combo to that worn by BBC’s Sherlock. While the images seem to show fairly straightforward walking and talking, we can also see Holmes showing Dr. Watson something on a smartphone; we can probably assume that this iteration of the character will be a big technology user.

What do you think of the images? Have they done anything to assuage any Sherlock comparisons, or are they just fuelling the fire?

    It’s painfully alike…. the scarf, the coat, the phone, “Joan” is even wearing a beige jumper!

    Big coat and a scarf? Really?

    aarrrggghhh…. somehow (from these pictures) Miller doesn’t exude the same charisma as Benedict…

    The coat, I understand. It’s cold in New York a lot of the time, but the scarf is too much. It’s ugly anyway. I still don’t understand what CBS thinks they’re doing.

    I’m don’t have any faith in this series, but I think you’re all exaggerating. It’s a coat and a scarf. A friend of mine has a coat like that and wears her scarf like that, does that mean she’s copying off Sherlock? No, it’s just means she gets cold. Geez people, chill.

    Definitely fueling the fire, but I’ll watch it even though it has no chance. I mean, in order to hate it, you have to watch it.

    Well… Dr. Watson looks quite different… =P

  • TheOneAndOnlyCliche

    He looks too…normal. Laid back, casual.
    I’m not sayng the actor is doing anything wrong, but look at any one picture of Ben as Sherlock and you can SEE the gears in his head turning. He’s always exuding that inner genius…this looks like a couple storlling down the street and one of them talking about the features on his new phone.

    I’m just not feeling it…..You get me??? Stupidest idea ever…..But I’ll give it a try anyway…..

    If this is honestly a version of Sherlock we’re all obviously going to boycott it.

    Watson cannot be a women. end of story. 
    But I like Johnny Lee Miller, so it’s kind of a shame that he’s gonna get all this crap from people who like Benedict better.

    I bet he is telling her all about her own life, simply from what he gleamed off her cellphone. Kinda like another Sherlock I know did.

    …Is it too late to have them swap roles?

    BBC’s Sherlock has kinda ruined both Ritchie’s version as well as this one for me.  This will forever be compared to Benedict, Martin and Sherlock.  It’s hard to escape.
