‘Elementary’: Join a live chat with star Jonny Lee Miller today

Was Jonny Lee Miller skeptical about reinventing Sherlock Holmes yet again or did he sign on for CBS’ hit procedural “Elementary” straight off? What would Sir Arthur Conan Doyle make of Miller’s tattoos? And what about that Moriarty reveal in the season finale? Did Miller see that coming?

Join Miller and Times staff writer Glenn Whipp at 12:30 p.m. PDT today for a live video chat about Miller’s standout work as a modern-day Holmes. Come with questions and we’ll do the asking.

Reviewing the series when it premiered in the fall, Times television critic Mary McNamara praised “Elementary” for delivering “characters at once solidly modern and true to the canon” created by Arthur Conan Doyle.

“Miller’s Sherlock is more boyish in his troubled brilliance,” McNamara wrote, “and clearly a romance with Watson is in the long-term offing, but each episode is less character-driven than those of [PBS miniseries] ‘Sherlock,’ more focused on the crime, reminding us that Conan Doyle was not as interested in character development as he was in storytelling; he all but invented the procedural.”
