While American television has shifted toward shorter series orders, it still hasn’t caught up with British productions like “Arthur & George,” which tells a self-contained story over three serialized episodes that each run about 45 minutes, so roughly the length of a feature film. Yet while this fact-based look at an episode in the life of Sherlock Holmes creator Sir Arthur Conan Doyle appears designed to cash in on interest in all things related to the fictional sleuth, it’s a slim construct, with a mystery that’s as wispy and unsubstantial as fog drifting in over the moors.
Starring Martin Clunes as Doyle, the movie operates on two related tracks: The famed author has lost his wife, and is plagued by guilt over whether she knew of his emotional attachment to another woman, Jean (Hattie Morahan), before her death. So he throws himself into investigating the case of George Edalji »

Following the death of his wife, Conan Doyle is encouraged to find something to occupy himself with. He soon discovers the case of George Edalji (Arsher Ali), who has been wrongly accused of several high-profile crimes.
Accompanied by his servant Alfred 'Woodie' Wood (Charles Edwards), the novelist sets out to prove George Edalji's innocence.
The series also takes a look at Conan Doyle's relationship with younger woman Jean Leckie, who eventually became his second wife.
After nearly a year away, it’s finally time to revisit the upstairs-downstairs drama of PBS’s “Downton Abbey.”
The new season continues in the Roarin’ 20s, an age of dramatic social and political change – guaranteed to annoy the Earl of Grantham, Robert Crawley (Hugh Bonneville). Radio will begin permeating homes and it’s bound to hit the Abbey sooner than later, further filling its occupants’ minds with ideas and visuals from far flung places.
Starting in 1924, Season 5 ties up several mysteries that have been haunting the Abbey for years and also settles some romantic storylines. Downstairs, alliances will form »
