Cast

Fictions

While the source book itself is not intended to be strictly historically accurate, the TV series contains additional inventions, such as the murder of a blacksmith and the death of a dog walker at the fictional Rugely Falls. Conan Doyle's chief suspect Royden Sharp is included in the story, but his suicide is invented to provide a tidy conclusion to the drama.

Production

The production filmed sections of episodes two and three in Kent. The Chatham Historic Dockyard was used to film London street scenes, including the outside of the Metropolitan Police station, George Edalji's lodgings and the night sequence in which Sir Arthur secretly follows George Edalji.[2]
