Shadows and Sleuths

Step into the intriguing world of Arthur Conan Doyle and his iconic literary creation Sherlock Holmes in the final episode of Killing Sherlock: Lucy Worsley on the Case of Conan Doyle. In this captivating series, Lucy Worsley takes us on a journey through the life and mind of the renowned author, uncovering the shadows and secrets that shaped the later Sherlock Holmes stories.

In Episode 3, Lucy delves into the darker side of Conan Doyle’s life, exploring how the personal tragedies he endured influenced the tone of his later works. After the devastating loss of his eldest son, Conan Doyle turned to spiritualism, becoming an ardent evangelist for the movement. This newfound belief in the afterlife and the supernatural infused his writing, giving a haunting depth to the later Sherlock Holmes stories.

But like any famed writer, Conan Doyle was not without his controversies. The episode highlights a public feud between the author and the legendary magician Houdini, which had a negative impact on Conan Doyle’s reputation and popularity. While his star began to decline, Sherlock Holmes continued to transcend his author’s life, finding a vibrant existence on stage and screen.
