Lucy Liu will play Watson in a new Sherlock Holmes pilot on CBS, a modernization of the Sir Arthur Connan Doyle novel. She’ll be playing Joan Watson while Jonny Lee Miller will play Holmes.
In this version, Joan is a former NYPD consultant who works as a sober companion. Holmes is a recovering addict and former Scotland Yard consultant.
Look, I’m all for being progressive — I was the first to champion the idea of giving women the right to vote back in 2011, as long as it doesn’t interfere with them making me a sandwich of course — but this is a little ridiculous. A woman playing Watson? So instead of wondering whether Watson is a power bottom or not, we’ll be wondering when Holmes is finally going to roofie him?
