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 in question was that of George Edalji, a Parsee solicitor, who was imprisoned for writing obscene letters and killing livestock in Great Wyrley, Staffordshire. George needed... Arthur’s help to clear his 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; whilst simultaneously becoming influential in a major reform to the English judicial system.

Martin Clunes stars as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle in this three-part ITV drama series. In 1906, shortly after the death of his first wife Louisa Hawkins (Geraldine Alexander), the creator of Sherlock Holmes is called upon to begin his own investigation when half-Indian solicitor George Edalji (Arsher Ali) is convicted of a crime he did not commit. When George is found guilty of injuring livestock he asks Arthur's assistance in proving his innocence. Although he is at first convinced by George's story, Arthur soon begins to doubt his initial instincts and must solve the case to determine whether George has really been the victim of a miscarriage of justice.
