'Elementary's' Jonny Lee Miller: Sherlock Holmes and Watson 'might have to have sex'

Ever since Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's consulting detective Sherlock Holmes first appeared in print in 1887, speculation has swirled about the relationship between Holmes and his friend and biographer, Dr. John Watson.While Doyle was clear that the two men were simply good friends -- and, indeed, Holmes seemed to have no sexual interest in anybody, and Watson wed his beloved Mary -- that hasn't stopped the innuendo.Especially in the 21st century, where sex has saturated almost every square inch of popular culture, the notion that two reasonably attractive single adults of whatever gender could have a close friendship without romantic overtones seems almost quaint -- at least in today's fiction.When CBS premieres its contemporary take on the classic tale on Thursday, Sept. 27, fans of Holmes and Watson will have an entirely new wrinkle in the relationship to tickle their imaginations.RELATED: Zap2it's Must-See New Fall TV Shows"Elementary" stars British actor Jonny Lee Miller as Holmes,...
