ARTHUR & GEORGE ITV, 9pm Think of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and the name Sherlock Holmes will no doubt spring to mind. Conan Doyle created the great detective, but led an exciting and intriguing life in his own right - and this three-part drama, based on a Julian Barnes novel, focuses on one aspect of it. It's 1903 and, while mourning the death of his wife Louisa, Arthur finds something to distract him - the case of vicar's son George Edalji, a solicitor imprisoned for allegedly mutilating animals and sending a series of threatening letters. Conan Doyle joins forces with his trusted manservant to clear George's name. Martin Clunes stars as the author, with Arsher Ali.
