Elementary's Producers on Lack of Sex
- Robert Doherty: In fact, let me be blunt - I don't want them to end up in bed together. That's just not what the show is for. I don't think that would be true to the spirit of the original relationship between the two characters, and that's important to me. I'd like to show that a man and a woman can be friends and go to work and live together and not end up romantically entangled.
- Carl Beverly: Robert often calls it a bromance, but one of the bros just happens to be a woman. I think it's a really apt description because there's this idea that a man and woman can't be together - on a show, especially - without needing to be together sexually or in love or whatever. And this is really just about the evolution of a friendship and how that happens.
