Good news for Elementary fans as the show will get a total of 21 episodes for Season 6--generally considered a full season although Elementary's previous five seasons were 24 episodes.

John Heard's connection to Sherlock Holmes was as Joan Watson's stepfather in Elementary. Henry Watson married Joan's mother Mary when Joan and her brother Oren were young and the children took his last name. Later, Henry and Mary divorced. Henry was a successful writer and in Season Four, Episode Seven, "Miss Taken", Joan learns that her stepdad, in a wonderful bit of meta, wrote a book, under the pen name Grover Ogden, called The Heart Bled Blue about a beautiful Chinese-American woman who lives with a guy from London who both consult for the NYPD. Joan confronts her stepdad about the book:
JOAN: What were you thinking?
HENRY: I was honoring you. The choices you make, the work you do. I think it's wonderful.
JOAN: Really? So that's why you didn't ask my permission. That's why you used a pseudonym. Because you knew how honored I would be.
HENRY: Did you even read the book?
JOAN: Of course I read the book.
HENRY: (like any typical author) And?
JOAN: It's ridiculous. Sherlock and I do not run around with guns and we don't get into kung fu fights with criminals and we sure as hell do not sleep together.
HENRY: Well, sex sells, Joanie. You know that. So how did you know that that was me?
JOAN: Grover Ogden? We lived on Ogden Avenue. Grover was our dog. And by the way, that is how you make a porn name, not a pen name!
Joan demands that the publisher retract the book and Henry asks what Sherlock thinks about his novel.
JOAN: Okay, first, you are not friends. You met him once, at Aunt Vivian's funeral. Second, he is never gonna find out about this. He is the most private person that I know. He would freak if he found out. Call your publisher, Dad.
Later, Joan finds out that Sherlock has known about the book for months and in fact has read it.
JOAN: Your not mad?
SHERLOCK: Should I be?
JOAN: Of course you should, you're you.
SHERLOCK: It's hardly the first time I've inspired a writer, Watson. I am actually the basis for several fictional characters across various media. It's one of the by-products of my success as a detective. I fascinate; this cannot be helped. You yourself once wrote about me: The Casebook of Sherlock Holmes.
JOAN: When did you...?
SHERLOCK: I was displeased because you used my real name and you shared my real history. Your father's magnum opus, on the other hand, is the very opposite of real. Look no further than chapter 32, where we make love beneath a footbridge in Central Park.
JOAN: Why didn't you tell me about it? The book, not chapter 32.
SHERLOCK: Your stepfather uses pseudonym, and I assumed you were the reason for that.
Later, Henry comes to the brownstone to apologize, say that the publisher will stop The Heart Bled Blue and to give Joan the manuscript of the sequel.
HENRY: Wait-- before you take my head off, I already told the editor that he can't have it; it's all yours. I was just putting the finishing touches on it when you came by the house the other day.
JOAN: I don't understand. Is this for me to burn?
HENRY: That's for you to do with whatever you like. I missed you, Joanie, and that's the real reason I wrote about you. I mean, these last few years, ever since I... strayed... You know, I know that I screwed up. I knew it the moment that it happened. But what I didn't know, what I wasn't ready for, was what it would do to us. You used to be my friend. And I ruined that. The book is just my way of dealing with it. It let me be close to you again.
Heartfelt and skeezy at the same time, like a lot of fan slashfic, it was a wonderful meta of fandom and Heard played it with sincere emotions that let you believe he was mostly blind to the creepy aspects of an author writing sex about a fictionalized version of his stepdaughter. Because Sherlock had no objections we find out in a later episode that the sequel was published.
