Elementary – Their Final Bow

This week was the series finale of Elementary and it is with a very heavy heart that I say goodbye. Despite my extremely dubious attitude at the beginning, being certain that no modern telling of Holmes, especially one set in New York, could live up to the original setting, the quality of this show never flagged. Jonny Lee Miller is right up there as my favourite Holmes. Jeremy Brett, in my opinion, will never be surpassed, but of the modern Holmes retellings Miller is now the high bar.

The writers knowledge of the canon was expert level and call outs to the books never felt like they were just wedged in for the sake of it. The character development was great and the last episode could not have been better. A huge thank you to everyone involved with the show. I will miss it.
