Arthur & George is a three-part adaptation of Julian Barnes’ novel, based on an intriguing series of genuine events in the life of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

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