I'm liking it so far. I think it does a great job of portraying Arthur Conan Doyle realistically, even going so far as to point out that he was growing tired of writing Sherlock Homes at the point this story takes place.

Allegedly, it's based on true events. That only means the writers based the story on historical documents, so I'm still a bit wary of how many creative liberties they take with history, especially as Doyle begins referring to himself as a consulting detective later in the first episode.

I wonder if they'll ever touch on his earlier encounter with Doctor Joseph Bell, the real life inspiration for Sherlock Homes.
