Arthur Who Wrote Sherlock: The True Story of Arthur Conan Doyle (2023)
How is a writer made? How is a legend created? After a troubled childhood, Arthur's only comfort is using his extraordinary imagination to write fantastic stories. He creates Sherlock Holmes, a genius detective. At first his stories are rejected, but Arthur is persistent and eventually the public take notice. It isn't long until Sherlock Holmes makes Arthur one of the most famous authors in the world - but what happens when Arthur tries to kill off his hero?
