ITV have released the first look at their new supernatural drama Houdini & Doyle.
Set in London in 1901, the show stars Stephen Mangan (Episodes, Green Wing) as Sherlock Holmes creator Arthur Conan Doyle and Michael Weston (House M.D., The Dukes of Hazard) as illusionist Harry Houdini.
The quick-witted duo team up to solve mysteries that the Metropolitan police cannot crack.
Despite being the creator of the world's greatest detective, Arthur Conan Doyle is well known for his belief in the paranormal.
Born in poverty before rising to become the highest paid performer in the world, Harry Houdini was a pragmatist, believing in only what he could see, touch and experience himself.
It is this unlikely collision of minds that leads to their great partnership and to their petty rivalry.
Based on an incredible true story, Houdini & Doyle will air on ITV Encore in 2016.
