Over the years we will see many different stars playing the same roles in different versions of the same story. In recent years in Hollywood, people have decided to take classic characters that we have come to know and love and give them some sort of unique twist. This always seems to happen when the US takes a hit British show and tries to make it its own, such as Elementary, the US version of the hit UK series Sherlock.
Lucy Liu as Dr. Watson
 
British actor Martin Freeman, who has become a global superstar in the past few years, plays the role of Dr. John Watson in the hit UK series Sherlock, giving us fantastic performances along the way. Meanwhile, the US decided to put their spin on the character, by making Watson a female and thus Lucy Liu was cast as Dr. Joan Watson in Elementary. So which one of these two stars is actually the better Watson.
 
Well, when considering such a classic character, it is necessary to take into account the history of the person. In Sir Arthur Conan Doyles description of Dr. John Watson, he is a returning army man who is battling with his demons from his tour. Martin Freeman's character fits this description perfectly and even has the right name. Lucy Liu's Dr. Joan Watson has the wrong name and, while her backstory is interesting, it is not accurate.

With that said, we are a fan of both Sherlock and Elementary and, while we do love the performances that Lucy Liu has given as Dr. Joan Watson, we are becoming annoyed with Hollywood messing about with classic characters. Sorry Lucy but Martin Freeman as Dr. John Watson in Sherlock gets our vote on this one. What do you think?
