It seems that every time we see an interview with Benedict Cumberbatch, he is saying something about ‘Elementary’, the ‘American Sherlock Holmes’ show.  
Martin Freeman is Watson in BBC's 'Sherlock'
 
Even though it doesn’t seem as if he’s technically comparing the two shows, he does tend to commend on them an awful lot [although this is very easily blamed on the type of questions he often gets asked].
 
In an interview with the Telegraph, while celebrating Spencer Hart’s 10th anniversary at the Brompton Club, Cumberbatch talks about the two shows, saying, “After working with with Martin [Freeman], I could never imagine Watson being a woman.  Martin is established as Watson. I have seen the pilot and one other episode of Elementary – I think it’s great. It works with Lucy playing Watson and she's a good actress, but I don’t think you could do that here with Sherlock.”

He adds, “It’s not that I think it doesn’t work in the States, it’s just Martin has been established as Watson and you can’t change that.” It doesn’t seem as if he’s saying anything negative about ‘Elementary’, although it does seem odd that this topic was brought up at all.
