Harry Houdini and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle team up with Scotland Yard to solve supernatural crimes.
Small-town Ontario. A minister wakes to find everyone in his village dead, without the slightest sign of violence. Was this retribution for past acts of evil, as the local natives believe? And if not, how else to explain why the man of God was the only one spared?
Our trio travels to Canada to investigate a homicidal poltergeist, where they are joined by other paranormal experts, including Thomas Edison, who unveils his latest invention -- the Necrophone -- a device that can purportedly communicate with the dead.
I am really enjoying this show. The juxtaposition of Doyle, author of the most logical detective ever, also being engrossed with the supernatural, against Houdini, the master of mystical illusion, defending the pragmatic and logical, is a masterful pairing. Adding in Constable Stratton and the dismal past of London, which lends itself to sinister acts and darker explanations, comes to equal fantastic TV.
