Houdini & Doyle, Season One: Episodes 1 – 4 (2016)

Houdini and Doyle, Season One – An Entertaining Period Drama About Sleuths

It’s been interesting to watch as network television joins the period drama bandwagon. One of those networks is Fox. With their summertime new series, Houdini and Doyle, Fox attempted to pull some Sherlock fans (though the ratings haven’t been great). This period drama is set in the early 1900s, and the script reads like a mash-up of established cozy mystery series.

    I do like all those things and hadn't heard of this one, but we haven't been watching a whole lot of tv. I'll have to catch this one and see what I think. :)

      Hope you enjoy, Tressa! It's lots of fun, and the camaraderie between the leads is what makes it so addicting.

    I've been curious about this show, I'm glad to know you liked it! Or at least the first few episodes anyway. I'll have to see about watching it sometime.

      You will indeed, Kara. It's lots of fun and if you don't mind the angle it has about magic, it's lots of fun. :)
