New Houdini & Doyle cast photos

Along with yesterday's trailer, FOX has released new photos of Houdini & Doyle stars Michael Weston, Stephen Mangan, and Rebecca Liddiard. The new photo of Weston has him looking his most Houdini-like yet. Click the images to enlarge.

Michael Weston as Harry Houdini.

Stephen Mangan as Arthur Conan Doyle.

Rebecca Liddiard as Constable Adelaide Stratton.

Houdini & Doyle will air on FOX in the U.S. in Spring 2016. It will also air on ITV Encore in the UK and Global TV in Canada.

  1. Doesn't this remind you of Ripper Street? I mean, I'm excited for this series, but I can't help but smile at how colourful and exaggerated all their clothes are!

    Fantastic new photos though! :)

    1. I haven't seen Ripper Street but, yeah, it's very much in the vein of high quality British television, which is great. It does look good.

  2. These actors are young compared to the real ages of HH and Doyle, who were middle-aged by the time they met. I suppose that middle aged actors would not have been marketable to the younger crowd watching this show.

    1. This is set in 1901. so their ages are correct for that time. But, yes, HH and Doyle didn't meet until 1920 when they were both middle aged.
