About the Show

Martin Clunes (Doc Martin) stars as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the creator of Sherlock Holmes, in a real-life case that inspired the great author to put down his pen and turn detective.

Tracing a string of crimes alleged to involve an attorney named George Edalji, Sir Arthur struggles to not only right injustice, but also to keep his own name —and the reputation of everyone’s favorite “consulting detective”— out of the mud.

Co-starring are Arsher Ali (The Missing) as George Edalji, a mixed-race solicitor under suspicion; Art Malik (Upstairs Downstairs) as his Indian father; and Emma Fielding (Cranford) as his Scottish mother. Also appearing are Charles Edwards (Downton Abbey) as Alfred Wood, Sir Arthur’s private secretary and real-life “Dr. Watson.”

Inspired by the shocking true case of the “Great Wyrley Outrages,” Arthur & George is adapted from Julian Barnes’s acclaimed novel of the same name, which was a finalist for the Man Booker Prize, the most prestigious literary award in the English-speaking world.
