Benedict Cumberbatch: 'Jonny Lee Miller is great as Sherlock'


Benedict Cumberbatch has praised Jonny Lee Miller's performance as Sherlock Holmes in CBS show Elementary.

Like the BBC's Sherlock, the US show sets Arthur Conan Doyle's character in the modern day. It cast Cumberbatch's friend and Frankenstein co-star in its lead role.



"I watched it... it's great. It's watching an actor I really like playing a part I really like and enjoy playing," Cumberbatch told Digital Spy and other journalists.

"And to see him relishing it in similar ways is fantastic. I think he's doing a wonderful job."

Quizzed how he would out-Sherlock his friend, Cumberbatch replied: "There are 78 of us all vying for the position, out-Sherlocking one another. So we're in good company."

After initially admitting to feeling "cynical" about Elementary when it was first announced, Cumberbatch later called the show "fantastic" and urged people to watch.

However, Cumberbatch's Sherlock co-star Martin Freeman admitted that he had not seen Elementary, which stars Lucy Liu as Joan Watson.


"I haven't and that's not a snubbing, it's just because I haven't seen most shows from anywhere," Freeman said.

"I wish them the best of luck, I think she's great, I think Jonny Lee Miller is really good."

Show co-creator Steven Moffat added: "The truth is we haven't seen it... the only thing we can do is maintain absolute separation.

"It's not just one other version of Sherlock Holmes, it's every other version of Sherlock Holmes. There's the Robert Downey Jr films.

"Basil Rathbone and Jeremy Brett live on television most days if you look hard enough! You're never the only version of Sherlock Holmes. "


Of whether he and Mark Gatiss would do episodes that did not spring off a Conan Doyle story, Moffat said: "We sort of have already. There are episodes that are brand-new stories really, with ingredients and elements from the original.

"We don't feel any sort of obligation to start from an original. There are just so many unused, untouched ideas in the original that you want to go for them. The majority of our stories are new."

Gatiss agreed: "They are really. There's obviously enshrined moments and things like that. I put the harpoon from '[The Adventure of] Black Peter into 'Baskerville' because it's a cool moment.

"That story never gets done - there's nothing much to it apart from a man getting speared through a wall. But it's a cool idea. I think there's so much brilliant stuff in Doyle."

Sherlock will return for a third series on January 1, 2014 at 9pm on BBC One.

Sneak Peek at Upcoming US Series - The 100!

Martin Freeman almost missed out on Sherlock role due to bad audition

Martin Freeman has revealed that he almost missed out on the role of Dr Watson in Sherlock.

The 42-year-old star of The Hobbit revealed to Radio Times, that his first audition was not successful after being a victim of robbery earlier in the day.



Freeman said that he felt distracted in the audition and meeting with producers, after he was targeted by a thief and had his wallet stolen.

"I'll admit maybe I was a bit stressed," said the actor, who stars alongside his real-life partner Amanda Abbington in the third series of the hit BBC One drama - which returns next week.

"But a week later my agent rang and said, 'Listen, this Sherlock thing, they're sort of under the impression you weren't that into it.' And I said 'Oh... I am really interested. Please call them and let them know that I am interested.' I wasn't being blase about it at all. I just wasn't on my best day."

Freeman then added that it was a chemistry test with co-star Benedict Cumberbatch that ensured he got the role.

"I came in again, read with Benedict and it instantly worked, it seemed to me... I thought he was a fantastic actor and there was something about our rhythms, similarities and differences that meant that it just happened."

Sherlock returns on BBC One, January 1, 9pm.

Doctor Who Christmas special breaks BBC America ratings record

BBC America achieved its highest-ever audience on Christmas Day, as 2.47m tuned in for this year's Doctor Who festive special.

'The Time of The Doctor' broke the US channel's ratings record that had only been set a month previously by Doctor Who's 50th anniversary special, which drew 2.4m viewers.



Matt Smith made his final appearance as the titular Time Lord in Wednesday's episode, bowing out of the role after almost five years.

The Thick Of It's Peter Capaldi made his debut at the end of the show.

A special looking back at Smith's time on Doctor Who also performed well for the channel, with 1.54m tuning in immediately before his last show.


Smith's goodbye and The Doctor's regeneration was the most-watched five-minute segment on British television on Christmas Day, drawing 10.2m viewers on BBC One.

The show was watched by an average of 8.29m, with Mrs Brown's Boys topping the overall UK Christmas Day ratings with an audience of 9.4m.
