They should be on a case far from home and imbibe too much. When they wake up the world may have changed.  :laugh:

Talk about "updated for the 21st century"! It tickles me that "Ms. Hudson," the person who comes in to clean for Sherlock Holmes and Joan Watson in Elementary, is played by the transgender actress Candis Cayne.  :D

I also find it amusing that the Diogenes Club is the name of the restaurants that Mycroft Holmes (Rhys Ifans) operates in London and New York.

I was chatting on my blog about seeing a couple of old Sherlock Holmes broadcasts at the tea I went to last Sunday. So, guess who played Sherlock Holmes in this mid-century broadcast?

By "mid-century broadcast," do you mean literally "on television in the 1950s"?

On television, yes. 1950s? More like 1950s-1980s.

Okay, this person played Moriarty in the show:

(Caution, this show is very difficult to find by Googling!)

Maybe this is pointing to the fact that until recently all leading men looked very similar to each other.
