New Zealand Woman’s Weekly - - DIRECTMALE -

The story of Sher­lock Holmes has been reimag­ined many times since 1887. Ele­men­tary is an­other mod­ern-day TV adap­ta­tion, where a dis­graced Sher­lock be­gins a new jour­ney, start­ing life over in New York City. A new sea­son of the se­ries has just kicked off and ac­tor Jonny Lee Miller is ex­cited to be back in the boots of the iconic de­tec­tive.

Even af­ter play­ing the same char­ac­ter for six sea­sons, Jonny (45) in­sists he still loves be­ing Sher­lock. “I love get­ting to say cool stuff,” he tells. “I know it sounds re­ally cheesy, but not only is he is su­per-smart, but he’s pretty funny, too. I love his dry sense of hu­mour – I re­ally en­joy play­ing that.”

Lucy Liu stars as Dr Joan Wat­son along­side Jonny’s way­ward English de­tec­tive.Ele­men­tary, Prime, Tues­days at 10.30pm
