Meanwhile, Watson (Lucy Liu) learns more about Holmes' mysterious life and the company he kept before he left for New York. "It's an opportunity to see Sherlock's old stomping grounds and take a closer look at a life that, until now, we've only been able to glimpse through the lens of his recovery," said creator/executive producer Robert Doherty. "Watson will have to keep up with a Sherlock who is both more comfortable in his surroundings and even bolder in testing the limits of those around him."
