Adler has been an unseen character on "Elementary" Season 1. She was described as Sherlock's ex who died at the hands of serial killer "M.", which fueled Sherlock's descent into drug addiction. When Sherlock later confronted "M." -- who turned out to be Sebastian Moran (Vinnie Jones) -- he learned that Adler was actually killed by Moraiarty.

Based on New York Times best-selling author Alan Furst’s acclaimed novel, the mini-series Spies of Warsaw (airing April 3rd and April 10th on BBC America) tells the story of military attaché Colonel Jean-Francois Mercier (David Tennant), a decorated hero of the 1914 war. While he is being drawn into a world of abduction, betrayal and intrigue in Warsaw, he finds himself in a passionate love affair with Anna (Janet Montgomery), a Parisian lawyer for the League of Nations. During this exclusive interview with Collider, actor David Tennant talked about what attracted him to this project, what the experience of shooting in Poland was like, dream roles that he’d love to do, how he’d love to be a part of a big comic book movie, what it’s like to interact with Doctor Who fans, what it means to him to have been a part of the Harry Potter franchise, »

There's something almost puppylike about the way David Tennant bounds into this Beverly Hills restaurant with a face-splitting grin. He's dressed chic-casual, slacks and sport coat over a vintage Brit-rock T-shirt, his face stubbly for "Broadchurch," the British police drama he's due to start filming the week after this meeting. That show will air later this year on BBC America, but he's here right now to talk about "Spies of Warsaw," a two-part miniseries airing on consecutive Wednesdays, April 3 and 10, on the same channel.
Filmed on location in the Polish capital, this adaptation of Alan Furst's well-received historical novel, set during the days leading up to World War II, casts Tennant as Col. Jean-Francois Mercier, a French aristocrat who finds himself drawn into a complex world of intrigue and betrayal as well as an affair with a Parisian lawyer (Janet Montgomery) for the League of Nations.
"He's a career »
David Tennant has traveled far from the Tardis.
In the two-part miniseries "Spies of Warsaw" (9 p.m. Et Wednesday, BBC America), Tennant has left behind his "Doctor Who" trench coat and traveled back in time to don the colorful uniform of a French army officer circa 1937.
In "Spies," Tennant plays Col. Jean-Francois Mercier, a French intelligence officer in Warsaw who meets Anna Skarbek, a League of Nations official played by Janet Montgomery ("Made in Jersey"). They are instantly attracted to each other, but Mercier's clandestine investigations dig up disturbing information about the Third Reich's preparations for war, and all of his relationships -- personal and professional -- become fraught with danger.
Mercier "is a career soldier. He was decorated for what he did in the First World War and for what he's done since, and he brings all that with him," said Tennant, who played the lead role on "Doctor Who" for three seasons. »

Currently, Gothica is only at the pilot stage, so if this proposed television drama does impress ABC, it could get scrapped like so many pilots do.

Seth Gabel! I would have started this article with a long Woo Hoo if it wasn’t somewhat unprofessional. But please allow me to take a step back. Gothica (which by the way has absolutely nothing to do with the Halle Berry movie of the same name) is a pilot in development at ABC, described as a modern-day gothic horror soap surrounding the lives of Dracula, Jekyll and Hyde, Frankenstein, Dorian Gray and more. Excellent, right?
This is not to be confused with the Showtime straight-to-series (no pilot required) Penny Dreadful, which features the same characters but in a Victorian London setting, that we told you about back in January. Nor is it to be confused with the modern-day I, Frankenstein movie which in turn is not to be confused with the Frankenstein movie that might have Daniel Radcliffe in it, as we reported earlier today. Don’t worry, we »

According to TVLine, McKenzie will play Henry Bird in "The Advocates" pilot. His character is described as a "quietly determined" man who "is freed after being unjustly imprisoned for 16 years." He and a female lawyer will join forces to become "victim advocates," who will often skirt the edges of the law in the interests of representing the legal underdogs of the world.
McKenzie's pilot role is in second position to "Southland," but there's obviously enough interest from "Advocates" production studio Warner Bros. (which also produces "Southland") to raise questions about the TNT show's longevity, since actors with job security rarely audition for other parts. It's also possible that should "Southland" be renewed and "The Advocates" be picked up to series by CBS, »
