The other detectives of late Victorian England
Crime abounded in late Victorian and Edwardian times--from the streets of London to the country houses of the nobility; from the royal apartments of Vienna to the hotel rooms of quiet Copenhagen. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s famous detective took on many of the era’s crooks, killers, blackmailers, and schemers--but so did the fictional sleuths of other celebrated writers of the time.
Great British actors including Derek Jacobi (I, Claudius; Cadfael), Judy Geeson (To Sir, With Love), Jean Marsh (Upstairs, Downstairs), Robin Ellis (Poldark), and John Thaw (Inspector Morse) deliver riveting performances in this classic mystery series. Relying on brain over brawn, their characters outwit, outthink, and outmaneuver the most ruthless of adversaries--and all in ways Sherlock Holmes would have considered much more than elementary.
As seen on public television.
Excellent stories with appropriate casting. Introduced me to a few authors I have never read but will now.Published 22 hours ago by BD

Truly an oursanding series of mysterious. Pity more Doctor Thorndyke cases were not filmed!
Excellent service. I am very, very pleased indeed!
Not a very good series after a promising idea. The acting and screen images look improvised and of inferior quality.Published 6 months ago by Fernando
