Elementary Boss Tackles Burning Question: Did Sherlock Actually Hire Watson?

Fittingly, CBS’ mystery series Elementary is full of questions: When will we meet the dastardly Moriarty? Is Irene Adler really dead?

And after the last couple of episodes, TVLine couldn’t help but notice a theory growing in popularity in our comments section. So we took this burning question to executive producer Rob Doherty: Did Sherlock actually hire Watson as his sober companion?

After all, she’s never met the elder Mr. Holmes, and that cryptic message denying her request to stay on the job longer seemed awfully strange for a father supposedly concerned about his son’s well-being.

“I have heard some of these rumors,” says Doherty. “It’s so hard for me to tell you which rumors I adore and which ones are too close to the truth.”

Well, this is one theory we can almost rule out. For one, “I will say that dad is real,” he says. “Personally, I would like to put a face to that name. I’d like to see who sired Sherlock Holmes. What’s he like? What’s that relationship like? I predict the relationship is just too interesting to not delve into and explore.”

Doherty is even more forthcoming when asked if the text message is actually a test from Sherlock.

“I’ll be less coy: If that’s something we ended up doing, I would genuinely be very surprised for all the reasons I just mentioned,” reveals the EP. “When I watch the show [like a fan], I have great curiosity about dad. I want to see that dynamic alive and in person. I value that more than the potential surprise that Sherlock has been leading her on this whole time.”

Still, Doherty admits that “it’s a really interesting notion. It’s funny. It made me laugh when I first heard it. But I just don’t see us going down that road.”

Although the private eye may not be the one pulling the strings, his relationship with Joan still will be affected by her decision to lie to him about M. Holmes’ rejection and to continue in her role as his sober companion.

“We recognize that it was a pretty monumental thing,” says Doherty. “It’s a big deal for any professional person to say, ‘I’m going to put in some time here on my own dime,’ especially with somebody as complicated as Sherlock Holmes. We recognize that it was not an insignificant gesture. There’s going to be some fallout. Sherlock will have his take on it when he becomes aware. Joan has a strong rational for doing what she does.”

Elementary returns with a new episode this Thursday (at 10/9c) and this Sunday following the Super Bowl.
