Houdini & Doyle

Critics Consensus

Weston and Mangan are fun as Harry Houdini and Arthur Conan Doyle, but their capers aren't much more than passable.

    It was a fun show to watch. Too bad it cancelled.

    I see most of the critics weighed in after one showing. The show has gotten better by leaps and bounds after the first 2 showings. I recommend it highly.
  • Jun 27, 2016
    Love love love. I really hope there will be a season two :)
  • Jun 13, 2016
    Interesting period piece but I would wish for more intriguing stories. If this lasts another season, I'm going to hope there's a bit more mystery to the episodes and not as predictable as they've been.
  • Jun 06, 2016
    Rebecca Liddiard as Constable Adelaide S...a perfect composite of emma watson and keira knightly.
  • May 30, 2016
    Awesome show, hoping for Series 2/Season 2. worth watching. fun and well conceived. The actors are very comfortable in their roles. It's fiction, so, just remember that. Don't try to be a history buff, it's a what-if show, if Houdini and Doyle met, well, historically, they have, but in this show they meet in the prime of their lives and careers. Again, I repeat, this is very well worth seeing. I hope it gets renewed, fun and entertaining.
  • May 16, 2016
    An interesting premise aided by three immensely likable actors - especially Liddiard as the first female constable at Scotland Yard - I don't see this show getting picked up for another season unless the cases they solve get much more interesting. But I'm willing to stick around to see if the script writers hit their stride.
  • May 11, 2016
    Such a great high concept show that I miss getting greenlit like in the 90's. But just like the 90's I fear FOX will cancel it before it gains a good foothold. Haven't seen a great campy period piece like this since Brisco County, Jr! I particularly enjoy the motives for the main characters to enter into the procedural crime drama: To prove one way or another there is life after death. Each of the titular characters has great reasons for this motivation, plus their constable accomplice strike a nice balance against their macho bravado.

    It's sort of getting better. Nothing to get over exited about. But then there is nothing much else on the TV either. At least it has a new concept and story
