A memorable drama with a fascinating mystery at its core, Arthur & George also provides an illuminating, realistic portrait of an era that is often overromanticized on TV.

Aiming for the middle, Arthur & George ends up being below average.

Fans of the ever expanding universe of Holmes-inspired fiction should enjoy the way the show contrasts the author with his creation... and creates a warm, affectionate relationship between Doyle and Wood that suggests the Holmes / Watson dynamic...

... a fascinating historical tale, unfortunately with some slow scenes, some unnecessary blood and guts and some one-dimensional characters. Nevertheless, I'm recommending it, despite those caveats.

The mystery itself is compelling enough, especially in light of the fact that it is based on actual events that eventually led to a major change in British law.

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