Trivia
In the summer of 2011 Danny Boyle created a National Theatre production of 'Frankenstein' in which Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller played the creator and monster and alternately changed nightly. Both actors then went on to play another Victorian creation Sherlock Holmes, both set in the present day, albeit opposite side of the Atlantic.

The recurring character of Mrs. Hudson, portrayed by Candis Cayne, and who is the occasional cleaning person for Sherlock's brownstone, is a nod to the original Arthur Conan Doyle character of the same name, who is the proprietress or landlady of 221b Baker Street, London, in the original canon, and in most Holmes screen incarnations.

Q
Do the original Sherlock Holmes books (1887-1927) and characters exist in this tv series?
A
No. Sherlock and Joan are treated as unique; the Sherlock Holmes books by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle do not exist in this fictional universe.
Q
What is the source of the show title?
A
It is now widely known that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock never actually said, "Elementary, my dear Watson." However, due to its' popularization in other media, it is considered his signature phrase. Doyle's Sherlock uses the word "elementary" only eight times in canon, usually referring to his immediate deductions from the smallest of evidence (such as the dirt on someone's shoes.)
