Created by Charles Finch
London in the 1870s. Gas lights. Hansom cabs. Gentlemen's clubs. Fog. And murder.
When the going gets tough, who ya gonna call?
Evidently CHARLES LENOX, a Victorian sleuth, a graduate of Oxford, and a gentleman through and through; a former explorer and Member of Parliament, and currently part of a thriving detective agency.
The inspiration is obviously Doyle, but this is Holmes gone upscale. Critics have praised the author's literate wit and elegance, as well as his detailed historical research, lauding him for bringing Jane Austen, P.G. Wodehouse and Charles Dickens into the mix.
It sounds like an Anglophile wet dream. I'm surprised it isn't already a show on PBS.
