Can you tease how Amelia will fit in on Grey’s Anatomy next season? — Carla
How she’ll fit into Grey Sloan will all depend on whether or not Derek takes the D.C. job, which causes some “frustrating complications,” executive producer Shonda Rhimes tells me. But Amelia will make a surprising connection at the hospital, just not with who you’d think. “There’s a moment early on when she finds herself the keeper of some secrets that Richard didn’t necessarily want her to know by being at an AA meeting that he didn’t know she was at,” Rhimes says. “It draws her into the world in a deeper way than she anticipated.” Hmm, I wonder what that secret could be.

'Elementary' First Look: Moriarty returns! -- EXCLUSIVE PHOTO

The new year is going to bring Sherlock and Joan face-to-face with an old foe — Natalie Dormer’s Moriarty, seen above in a photo you’re seeing first on But what brings the trio together again in the episode, which airs Jan. 2? We hopped on the phone with executive producer Rob Doherty to get the scoop.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Set up the episode for us.
DOHERTY: A young girl is kidnapped in New York City, and Sherlock and Joan come to believe that Moriarty may have orchestrated the abduction, which is a tad confusing since she’s been in federal custody for several months now. So in the episode, they seek her out and she becomes something of a participant in the investigation into the kidnapping.

'Elementary' boss previews Mycroft's 'difficult news' for Sherlock -- EXCLUSIVE PHOTOS

The Nov. 14 episode of Elementary is going to find Sherlock in the state he least prefers: distracted.

The source of this distraction, as you might guess, is his brother, Mycroft (Rhys Ifans), who comes to town from the U.K. in the Nov. 7 episode seeking help from his brother. “[Mycroft]‘s a bit of a distraction to Sherlock and the bearer of some difficult news that is even more distracting, and there’s nothing Sherlock loathes more than distractions,” says EP Rob Doherty. “The episode is about finding the balance between a case and having some unwanted family in town, which is probably something a lot of people can relate to.”

The episode, titled “Blood Is Thicker,” will also find Joan and Sherlock working a case that was partly inspired by the classic Sherlock mystery “The Problem of Thor Bridge,” in which a body falls from above and lands on a moving object, in this case, a poor delivery man’s truck. (Some exclusive photos from the episode are shown here.)

“With Sherlock, once he’s, for lack of a better word, pregnant with a case,” explains Doherty, “it’s very hard to get him to focus on anything else. So I’d say this is a story about Sherlock being forced to carve out a little time for his brother, who will not be in town very long.”

'Elementary' season premiere: Prepare to meet Mycroft Holmes and Inspector Lestrade

Tonight, Elementary returns with a second season premiere (CBS, 10 p.m. ET) that takes Sherlock (Jonny Lee Miller) and Watson (Lucy Liu) to Holmes’ homeland. The duo travels to London, the city where he fell apart, after Sherlock learns that his old colleague, Inspector Lestrade (Sean Pertwee) has fallen on difficult times.

“He became obsessed with a case, couldn’t quite prove his suspicion, harassed a wealthy and powerful suspect, and ended up doing more harm to himself than anyone else. His reputation’s been ruined, and he’s been suspended from Scotland Yard,” executive producer Robert Doherty tells EW. “In the book, he’s not always described in the most glowing of terms. He was a bit of a gloryhound — he liked working with Holmes because he knew Holmes didn’t care about taking credit, and so Lestrade often leaned on him to make progress and solve cases. The premise of Elementary is, of course, that Sherlock Holmes had to leave London and come to New York. So we were asking ourselves, what happens to a Lestrade when he loses his Holmes? And in this case, bad things. He has struggled for the last couple of years, and he’s been exposed as a good but not great detective, and he’s finally at the end of his rope. Once Sherlock realizes he’s struggling to the degree that he is, he and Joan depart for London to try to help him.”

The trip also gives the show the opportunity to introduce Sherlock’s brother, Mycroft Holmes (Rhys Ifans). “Sherlock looks down on Mycroft. He thinks he’s someone loaded with potential who never quite did enough with this life. The truth is, Mycroft is a smart, successful, very interesting guy,” Doherty says. “But a number of years ago, Sherlock crossed some lines, committed some offenses against his brother that he couldn’t really take back. And so we’ll learn that the brothers haven’t talked in many years. Sherlock had no intention of telling Mycroft that he was coming to the UK, but circumstances conspire to have the two of them cross paths. Sherlock has to reveal to Joan that he has a brother, and then explain the state of the relationship. Mycroft finds Joan very interesting in that she has developed what is now  a pretty long-term friendship with Sherlock, and in Mycroft’s experience, that’s a rare thing indeed.” 

'Arrested Development,' 'Elementary,' 'Da Vinci's Demons,' and more: The making of this year's Emmy-nominated music

The Primetime Creative Arts Emmys celebrated behind-the-scenes artists on Sunday — including composers recognized for their work on shows like Elementary, House of Cards, and The Borgias. The characters in the series they work on play more than a small role in shaping the shows’ sounds, as EW learned in talking to the nominees in the music score categories on the carpet ahead of the ceremony, which will air on FXX this Saturday.

Starz’s Da Vinci’s Demons won the award for Outstanding Original Main Title Theme Music, while Downton Abbey won for Outstanding Music Composition for a Series, and ReelzChannel’s World Without End snagged the award for Outstanding Music Composition for a Miniseries, Movie, or Special.

Read on to learn more about the making of the music for five shows.


'Elementary': 'Once' musical star to guest as Joan's romantic interest -- EXCLUSIVE

A Broadway star has his eye on Joan Watson!

EW has learned exclusively that Steve Kazee, one of two leads in the original cast of the Tony Award-winning Once musical, is set to guest star on CBS’ Elementary, playing a man who Joan (Lucy Liu) meets while making her first foray into online dating. The hitch in this plan for love? According to scoop, Sherlock’s (Jonny Lee Miller) views on relationships — particularly internet-matchmaking — may mar the courtship before it even has the chance to get off the ground.

Prior to his appearance in the Broadway smash, Kazee, whose Once co-star Cristin Milioti is now How I Met Your Mother’s Mother, appeared on the TV series Working Class and had bit parts on CSI and NCIS.

The episode, called “We Are Everyone,” is scheduled to air in October, and Elementary returns Sept. 26.

'Elementary' casts Rhys Ifans as Sherlock's brother

It looks like Elementary‘s upcoming trip to London will become a family affair.

Rhys Ifans has been cast in the recurring role of Sherlock Holmes’ older brother, Mycroft Holmes, CBS announced Wednesday.

The Amazing Spider-Man actor is set to appear in the premiere of the show’s second season, which airs Sept. 26 and will be shot on location across the pond, as previously reported.

Per CBS’ synopsis of the episode, we meet Mycroft, with whom Sherlock once had a falling-out several years prior, after an old case takes Joan and Sherlock to London and they stay with his older brother — who lives at 221B Baker Street. “With Joan in the middle, the brothers are forced to confront their very complicated history,” the network teased.
