Writer: Ed Whitmore / Director: Stuart Orme
Series: Arthur and George / Season 1 Episode 3 (of 3)
The three-part adaptation of Julian Barnes’s novel, based on the real events surrounding the relationship between Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and George Edalji, a man sentenced to prison in 1903 for a crime for which he maintained his innocence, concludes. In the final episode, Arthur is determined to prove the doubters wrong and find out for himself if George has been hiding anything.
He attacks the case with renewed vigour and uncovers fresh evidence that contradicts that of the police. Woodie is at first concerned by Arthur’s continued interest in the case but becomes convinced that they are on to something. It seems that they finally have the culprit in their sights, and the fact that they are so close to the truth is the reason the Wyrley Ripper has been desperately trying to put them off.
Arthur is determined to take his fight to the highest echelons of the British establishment, even if this means exposing prejudice and corruption. But he and Woodie remain in danger, as it appears that the Wyrley Ripper is still at large and may be toying with Conan Doyle by attempting to outwit the creator of the world’s most famous fictional detective. Will Arthur be able to unlock the case and prove to the world that George is innocent?
