ARTHUR AND GEORGE
Arthur and George grow up worlds and miles apart in nineteenth-century Britain: Arthur in genteel Edinburgh, George in the vicarage of a small Staffordshire village. Arthur becomes a doctor, and then a writer; George a solicitor in Birmingham. Arthur is to become one of the most famous men of his age, George remains in hardworking obscurity. But as the new century begins, they are brought together by a sequence of events which made sensational headlines at the time as The Great Wyrley Outrages. Arthur Conan Doyle, famous as the creator of the world's greatest detective, is mourning his first wife when he hears about the miscarriage of justice in the case of George Edjali, and is galvanised into trying to clear George's name.
