Sherlock Holmes is back on home turf in the second-season premiere of “Elementary” — and so, a bit uncomfortably, is star Jonny Lee Miller.
"It’s a little bit surreal, to be honest with you."
It was the U.S. setting that convinced him to do the show.
"I wouldn’t have done it here" in London, he said.
A season in, “Elementary” is a hit for CBS, and here Miller is, filming the start of season two this week at London locations including Paddington Station and Trafalgar Square.
Filming in Trafalgar Square this week provided the show’s makers with an archetypal London scene — pigeons, tourists, Nelson’s Column, red double-decker buses. The only thing amiss was the weather. It was warm. The sun shone. So much for those classic images of 221B Baker St. in the rain.
"When we started writing the script I just assumed that it would be the London I’ve seen in so many movies and shows before," ”Elementary" creator and executive producer Robert Doherty said.
"But this is great. This is perfect. For our purposes and given the time of year that we’re going to premiere, I’d rather have a big, beautiful, lush and sunny London for the American audience."
