Houdini and Doyle series

BBC's Sherlock… CBS' Elementary…  now the networks Fox/ITV/Shaw Media are getting in the game too?  Sort of.  Oh-kay…  (cue the quizzically intrigued caution)

Quote of the official description:  “Two of the great characters of the 20th century — Houdini, master magician, escape artist and paranormal debunker, and Doyle, creator of the world’s greatest detective and a paranormal aficionado — grudgingly join forces to investigate crimes with a supernatural slant. Although they’re both rich, famous and brilliant, they’re the original odd couple, with Houdini believing in nothing, Doyle in everything.”  (whole article here:  http://deadline.com/2015/03/houdini-and-doyle-series-fox-itv-shaw-media-1201394425/)

Huh.  Alright… well, apparently Houdini and Doyle were friendly in real life, which I hadn't remembered, so might be interesting they're focusing on the man himself.  What do you think?  And just in case any of you who love to keep abreast of news-bits like that need another site among the zillions to check out, I found out about it by chancing across http://www.scoop.it/t/sherlock-holmes -- kind of a one-stop place for all the news they find on the web, with plenty you might find interesting.  Including a ton of entries the past month for a 'newly found' Doyle story I'd never heard of, that very likely wasn't actually written by him.  Interesting bit of history, though.

I'm working my way up the greasy pole.  It's… very greasy.  And…  pole-shaped.

Re: Houdini and Doyle series

So there's a bit more new info up about the Houdini & Doyle show, with casting -

Still sounds interesting, with the friendship of opposites of two men ahead of their time… debating whether interested enough to watch!
Anyone familiar with the two main actors?

Re: Houdini and Doyle series

I really hope this show would be filmed and would last at least one season. Sounds fascinating.

See how the yellow fog swirls down the street and drifts across the dun-coloured houses. What could be more hopelessly prosaic and material? What is the use of having powers, Doctor, when one has no field upon which to exert them?

Re: Houdini and Doyle series

The pairing of these two characters is a great concept. If this is executed well, I think it can be a success. Haven't seen any good shows about Houdini yet though. Still, a very intriguing concept.

Re: Houdini and Doyle series

A perfect pairing as they were best friends in real life.
Want to see this!
