Houdini & Doyle

New drama series starting tonight on TV.  Looks good:

Tonight (13.03.16) on ITV and ITV Encore, the first episode of new series 'Houdini & Doyle' opens with a shocking mystery for the pair to investigate.

The series stars Stephen Mangan as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Michael Weston as famous escape artist Harry Houdini. The series is inspired by the real-life friendship between the men as well as their interest in spirituality and crime-solving. Doyle famously believed that Houdini possessed supernatural powers which enabled him to perform his incredible illusions. Whilst Houdini himself constantly tried to prove that there was always an explanation behind an illusion; he refused to believe in the paranormal.

Cue a great premise for a new show.

Houdini & Doyle will see the pair team up to help investigate bizarre and seemingly inexplicable crimes. With the help of Constable Adelaide Stratton, the two men will investigate the murder of a nun in the first episode. A witness claims she has seen the whole thing but there’s just one problem: the suspected murderer has been dead for six months.

Hopefully, each episode will be available on catch-up after broadcast, so the full series can be watched here as and when.
