Jonny Lee Miller, star of the hit CBS television series "Elementary," joined us for a video chat in which he talked about playing a contemporary version of legendary detective Sherlock Holmes opposite Lucy Liu's Watson. Miller touched on the challenges of playing such a well-known and beloved character and answered questions from readers, offering tips on memorization and telling of his relief that he wouldn't have to worry about covering up his tattoos for the role. Reviewing the series when it premiered in the fall, Times television critic Mary McNamara praised "Elementary" for delivering "characters at once solidly modern and true to the canon" created by Arthur Conan Doyle.

How many Sherlocks can dance on the head of a pin? At least one more, as it turns out. On paper, Thursday's launch of "Elementary," CBS' update of the world's first and most famous consulting detective, seems absurd. Robert Downey Jr. has given Holmes an ironic, rakish twist and action-figure potential on the big screen, while Benedict Cumberbatch dials him down to icy and vulnerable brilliance on the BBC's "Sherlock. " But David Shore's "House," which started the whole Holmesian renaissance, is notable in its absence this fall, leaving space for a straightforward police procedural accessorized with characters that evoke familiarity while projecting a thoroughly modern, and American look.

NEW YORK - Sherlock Holmes has really been through the wringer lately. In two feature films, Guy Ritchie turned the pipe-smoking detective into a 19th century British butt-kicker who's as likely to corner criminals with his fists as with his brain. An increasingly popular BBC show restores some of the meditative qualities of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's original but brings Holmes to modern-day London. Now a new broadcast series, "Elementary," offers perhaps the most fanciful interpretation: Holmes (Jonny Lee Miller)
