Tv Season Info

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (Martin Clunes) makes like his famed detective, Sherlock Holmes, in this three-part miniseries adapted from the novel of the same name by Julian Barnes, which itself was based on a true event. The case: whether the half-Indian son (Arsher Ali) of a village vicar was wrongly convicted of mutilating livestock. Although the man has served his time, his livelihood is now threatened—he's a solicitor by trade, and his law license has been revoked. Accompanied by his personal secretary (Charles Edwards), Conan Doyle's investigation leads him through the personal politics of small-town life; and serves to distract him from the death of his wife, and the guilt he feels for having loved another woman more than he loved her.

Critic Reviews for Arthur & George on Masterpiece #DEL Season 1

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (2)

Doyle, commandingly brought to blustery life by Martin Clunes (Doc Martin), tests his own Sherlockian mettle in the fact-based Masterpiece Mystery! miniseries... And a very enjoyable story it is, too.

It's handsome enough, but ultimately feels just a trifle too elementary.

Clunes isn't the only reason Arthur & George is such a keeper, but he certainly seals the deal.
