Dr. Thorndyke is an early proponent of forensic investigation; and there is the blind gumshoe Mac Carrados; and gentleman thief Simon Carne; and Mr. Carnacki who is a detective of the occult. These men pit their wits against the best that London's underworld has to offer. Victorian London was a boon for crooks and a bane to Scotland Yard, whose job it was to keep the city safe from criminals.

Although a bit 'theatrical' these 13 episodes open up a fascinating world of Victorian detectives of every ilk. The period recreation is well done, the acting excellent, and the various detectives, from stalwart to cad, from mundane to occult are quite interesting. It's a fine addition to the mystery genre and to Victoriana.
