In 1878, Arthur Conan Doyle (Laing) is a medical student at Edinburgh University. He is mentored by the gurff and brilliant, if unconventional, Dr. Joseph Bell (Richardson), who is a pioneer in the field of forensic science. Arthur is soon assisting Dr. Bell, who is helping the local police investigate the brutal murders of several young women. The case may also take a personal turn for Arthur when it appears his classmate and friend Elspeth (Wells) is a target. Well-done if sometimes gruesome; based in part on the letters and writings of Bell.
