Certain events which had an impact on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, while he was still a medical student under the supervision of Dr. Bell, his teacher and mentor, on whom the character of Sherlock Holmes is partly drawn from.
After an encounter with a demon, a sceptical nurse and ex-scientist named Jude meets the depressed and mysterious John Strange. Strange was once a priest, but now searches for demons hiding in the world. Standing in his way is Cannon Black, a shifty character with unknown motives. With Jude's knowledge and her newly found connections to this dark world, Strange may finally be able to accomplish some of the good he set out to do.Written by
The best thing I've seen in a while. It's eerie and addictive.
I am admittedly a BBC-ophile, and sci fi is a not-so guilty pleasure, but nonetheless very choosy. This show is excellent. The production looks great and the characters are lovable; save the villains. It's as good as any other long running well acclaimed series, and like the X-files clearly takes it's lead from the old Nightstalker series, with perhaps a little Dr. Who thrown in for good measure. I always hate to see Networks scrambling to imitate forerunning shows, while researchers sit mystified by demonhunting focus groups. Likewise, American versions of well done BBC productions always fall flat or stale (Cracker). This series was emulation worthy. I'm sorry to see it's two years to late to keep it on the tele. While Fox and WB fought over Buffy, sadly this show went unnoticed by Americans viewers. Hope we see Richard Coyle again soon.
