Storyline

In 1906 Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, mourning the death of his wife, is suffering from writer's block caused by his depression. Then his secretary Woodie shows him a letter from George Edalji, a young Parsee solicitor recently released from prison for crimes of which he claims innocence, maiming livestock and sending poison pen letters, asking Sir Arthur help him clear his name. Arthur meets him and, noticing he is very short-sighted, instantly believes him to be innocent. Against the advice of the judge who sentenced George Arthur travels to Great Wyrley, scene of the crimes and meets George's family. He learns that they have suffered past persecution and George's vicar father Sharpurji received hate mail. Whilst dining with them Arthur is aware of an eaves dropper and gives pursuit, coming across a bizarre shrine. Written by don @ minifie-1
