“We’re moving to the next chapter in our show – and in some ways, to a previous chapter in Holmes’ story,” said executive producer/creator Rob Doherty. “Irene Adler is perhaps the most pivotal relationship in Sherlock’s life, and I can’t think of an actress better suited to the challenge than Natalie.”

Dormer currently stars as Margaery Tyrell on HBO’s acclaimed fantasy series “Game of Thrones.” She previously co-starred in Showtime’s period drama, “The Tudors,” playing Anne Boleyn.

“Elementary” airs Thursdays at 10/9c on CBS.
