"[S]uperbly crafted horror-tinged tales, which are well above average for excursions into television Victoriana."
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle dedicated THE ADVENTURES OF SHERLOCK HOLMES to his medical mentor, Dr. Joseph Bell, writing "It is to you that I owe Sherlock Holmes." Dr. Bell, who taught medicine at the University of Edinburgh, had a remarkable ability to deduce information about people he observed, and also worked with the Edinburgh police on forensic medicine. Using these historical facts as a jumping-off point, the PBS miniseries MURDER ROOMS: THE DARK BEGINNINGS OF SHERLOCK HOLMES imagines a scenario in which Dr. Bell (Ian Richardson) solves crimes with the young Arthur Conan Doyle (Robin Laing) playing the role of sidekick. Together, the two delve into the seedy underbelly of Edinburgh and uncover a sinister killer.
