Houdini & Doyle
Let me first start out by saying that I love this type of show. I am a big fan of the "Murdoch Mysteries" and I believe that "Houdini & Doyle" will become a regular on my TV viewing list.
I thought that the cast of Stephen Mangan ( Arthur Conan Doyle), Michael Weston (Harry Houdini), and Rebecca Liddiard (Adelaide Stratton), was superb. I liked the setting, costumes and the entire vibe of the show. This is a light romp through History for chuckles, don't expect it to be Historically accurate.
Of course, the show is small and the cast is limited so it is fairly easy to guess the perp even with the last-minute clues. That being said, if you like a Victorian "Midsomer Murders" or a "Murdoch Mysteries", you should enjoy "Houdini & Doyle".
