is based on the relationship between Sherlock Holmes creator Arthur Conan Doyle (Charles Edwards) and the real-life inspiration behind the famous fictional detective--forensic pathologist Dr. Joseph Bell (Ian Richardson). Set in the late 1800s, this BBC1 series follows Bell and Doyle as they attempt to solve various mysteries. Doyle, now a newly qualified doctor, is troubled by a beautiful, young patient claiming to be the victim of a stalker - a shadowy figure who follows her into town on a bicycle. As Doyle himself discovers, her fears appear to be more than mere fancy, and soon the incomparable Dr. Bell is on the case. As the two investigate further, events take a gradually more sinister turn with corpses starting to appear, an old house with a gruesome past and the worrying disappearance of Doyle's young and beautiful patient. Could all this be connected to the mysterious stalker? Can Dr. Bell once again employ his famed "methodology" to solve the case? Or will even he be prepared for the final twist that awaits them?
MURDER ROOMS: THE PHOTOGRAPHER'S CHAIR 1882:
London is in the grip of spiritualists and séances. Arthur Conan Doyle joins Dr Joseph Bell in a labyrinthine task of investigating a number of corpses found mutilated, floating in the River Thames. Their quest to uncover the architect behind the gruesome murders leads them through London's underground world of soothsayers and mediums. As the two sleuths probe deeper, they find themselves dangerously caught up in a 'spiritualism' darker and more terrifying than either man could possibly have imagined.
MURDER ROOMS: THE KINGDOM OF BONES
When the public unwrapping of an allegedly ancient Egyptian mummy turns out to reveal the fresh corpse of a contemporary gentleman, it is clear to Dr. Joseph Bell and Doyle that foul play is at hand. After a post mortem proves that the deceased was indeed the victim of a brutal murder, the doctor and his friend resolve to discover the killer. In their search they become acquainted with a Canadian art collector who appears to be equally keen to solve the riddle of the mummy. But can appearances be trusted? MURDER ROOMS: THE WHITE KNIGHT STRATAGEM The suicide of a mysterious young woman and the murder of two men appear to be inextricably linked. When Dr. Joseph Bell is asked to assist the police, it soon becomes clear that this is more than just a routine case. Dr Bell's relationship with the Chief of investigation is put in the spot light as old resentments come to the surface jeopardising a quick conclusion to the murders. Bell calls in Arthur Conan Doyle for support, but when Doyle seems to side with the Chief rather than his mentor, cracks start to appear in their long friendship. Can Joseph Bell's extraordinary powers of deduction reveal that there is more to this case than meets the eye? Or will he be proved wrong for the first time in his career?
