Arthur & George (NR) 180 minutes

Arthur & George- Series - NR – In 1906, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (Martin Clunes) having lost his first wife, was overcome with grief; even Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson refused his call. It was only when his secretary, Woodie, presented him with an apparent real-life miscarriage of justice, that he could be roused to action. The case of George Edalji (Arsher Ali), a Parsee solicitor, who was imprisoned for writing obscene letters and killing livestock in Great Wyrley, Staffordshire, needed Arthur's help to clear George’s name. However, as the twists and turns of the case unfold, Arthur himself questions George's innocence. It is only by finding the true culprit, that Arthur can finally put the case, and his grief, to rest; while simultaneously becoming influential in a major reform to the English judicial system. - Adapted from Julian Barnes' novel, Arthur & George with George Edwards and Art Malik.
