Series / Murder Rooms

Murder Rooms: The Dark Beginnings of Sherlock Holmes note  has the premise that Arthur Conan Doyle (Robin Laing in the Pilot Movie and Charles Edwards in the series) based his character of Sherlock Holmes on surgeon Dr. Joseph Bell (Ian Richardson) with whom he used to solve murders. Bell did in fact exist, and it is said some of Holmes' personality traits and observational methods were based on him, but Doyle and Bell certainly did not solve murders together. The series only has five episodes and some speculate it was Screwed by the Network after someone from the BBC remarked it was "too successful for the wrong department".
