With Elementary beginning its second series, you would hope that it would continue as the first series ended. Not necessarily with the same storyline, but the same style and wit that the first series brought to our screens. I feel honoured to say that Elementary has opened the series with a bang!
It's hard to describe this episode if I'm honest. After such a long absence of this programme, you find yourself thinking that you need to re-watch the last series to keep track. Honestly, you don't need to. You seem to start this series the same way the first series started: excited yet sceptical if it can live up to the hype. To start with, I was a little confused, but I gasped when I saw it was LeStrade. After that, the story did what it does best, build up into the pinnacle moment that you realise it's the same, if not better than the first series opener.
Mycroft Holmes. Rhys Ifans. Need I say more? Of course I do, but I don't have that much room. Rhys brings his own style to Mycroft. Far away from the uptight, government led Mycroft we have known from the BBC series and the films, but now he is a successful restaurateur who actually gets on with his father, much to the annoyance of Sherlock. He however has been keeping secrets, which I will not divulge here, I'm not that nasty that I would spoil it for you!
