This is perfect timing me to edit and republish content that first appeared on Persona Paper, June 8, 2015.

Two real life people that have always intrigued me:
Harry Houdini & Sir Arthur Conan Doyle to feature in X-Files style program | steampunkjournal.org
Fox ordering TV series about Sherlock Holmes author | ew.com

The two links above are entertainment history markers now.

Had heard that Ian McKellen (played the wizard “Gandalf” in the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy) was going to be cast to play an elderly Sherlock Holmes. The latest brew haha is that the Doyle Estate is suing over copyright violations. Found two links of interest pertaining to that entertainment news.

At any rate, scouring the Internet for feedback and opinions about this new TV series and sharing a link  to one of the reviews that pretty much expresses my 1st impression as well.

To sum up the IGN review?  Some entertainment value, but shallow characters.

Oh my! Can you spell disappointing?

Oh well!  Here is a fascinating read that won't disappoint.  It's about how the friendship between Houdini and Doyle dissolved.
