When US network CBS first announced that it would be creating its own modern-day Sherlock Holmes series, Sue Vertue, executive producer of the BBC's Sherlock, confessed herself "worried". CBS had previously approached her and husband, Sherlock co-creator Steven Moffat, about translating the show to America. The fact that they were turned down yet went ahead and did their own version, Elementary, had some people whispering "rip-off".
Having now seen a synopsis and a trailer for Elementary, Moffat has gone the other way, suggesting that its hardly Sherlock Holmes at all. Meanwhile, fans are wondering how it stacks up against Sherlock.
Well what better way to find out what's really going on than to compare the two detectives across some of the areas that really matter, from dress sense to addiction, sidekicks to solving crimes...
