The TV schedules are groaning with police dramas – but none are as weird and wonderful as this one.
In the new 10-parter, Stephen Mangan plays Sherlock Holmes creator Sir Arthur Conan Doyle with US actor Michael Weston as escapologist Harry Houdini.
They team up with Scotland Yard’s first woman copper, Constable Adelaide Stratton (Rebecca Liddiard), to solve supernatural crimes.
In the spooky yet funny opening show, they investigate the murder of a nun in one of the notorious Magdalene laundries, where so-called fallen women worked.
A witness claims the killer is a young woman who was tormented by the nun. The only problem? The suspect died six months ago…
“When I found out the show was being executive produced by David Shore, who made House, it was an easy decision to say, ‘yes’,” says Green Wing and Episodes star Stephen, 47.
” Houdini and Doyle did meet but we fiddled with the timeline. It’s like the Edwardian X-Files!”
Stephen’s wife Louise Delamere plays his onscreen spouse, Touie.
“We had to kiss in one scene,” he grins. “It felt very weird kissing in front of a camera crew!”
