Murder Rooms: The Dark Beginnings of Sherlock Holmes
Murder Rooms: The Dark Beginnings of Sherlock Holmes
Airing: Thursday, January 11, 2001
(check local listings)

A serial killer, loose in 1870s Edinburgh, is pursued by history's real Sherlock Holmes, Dr. Joseph Bell (Ian Richardson), assisted by the young Arthur Conan Doyle (Robin Laing). Part fact, part fiction, the plot is based on the newly discovered activities of Bell, who was Doyle's real-life model for Sherlock Holmes. In the course of the two-part drama, evidence mounts against a surprising suspect. But is it really that elementary?
