Product Details

Sherlock Holmes is the world’s most famous fictional detective and made his creator – the author Arthur Conan Doyle – rich and famous. But the writer came to hate his fictional character. Over the course of three episodes, historian and lifelong Sherlock Holmes fan Lucy Worsley investigates the love-hate relationship between Holmes and Doyle in a “unique parallel biography” of Sherlock Holmes and the man who created him. This series follows in the footsteps of Agatha Christie: Lucy Worsley on the Mystery Queen with Lucy scouring archives, meeting experts, descendants and fans. Weaving together historical context with personal history to explore Doyle and his creation within the world events and changes going on around them.
