This disparity is also reflected in academic research. As far as I know, this is the first scholarly essay on Elementary but Sherlock has already attracted considerable academic attention. Two edited collections on Holmes include essays on Sherlock: Sherlock Holmes for the 21st Century: Essays on New Adaptations, ed. Lynnette Porter (Jefferson, NC: McFarland, 2012)
and Sherlock Holmes and Conan Doyle: Multi-Media Afterlives, eds. Sabine Vanacker and Catherine Wynne (Basingstoke: Palgrave Macmillan, 2012).
One edited collection focuses entirely on Sherlock: Sherlock and Transmedia Fandom: Essays on the BBC Series, eds. Kristina Busse and Louisa Stein (Jefferson, NC: McFarland, 2012). Matt Hills is preparing Sherlock: Detecting Quality TV for I.B. Tauris and there is probably other material forthcoming.
