From novel to TV screen, the world of Sherlock Holmes feels really familiar, but the reality of Victorian life was often a much darker one. So what can the world of Sherlock Holmes teach us? And what – from poverty to politics, prejudice to prostitution – does it leave out? Hallie Rubenhold, author of the award-winning The Five and Shrabani Basu, creator of Victoria & Abdul and now The Mystery of the Parsee Lawyer, joins Sherlock-lover Janina Ramirez to explore the real world of Sherlock Holmes, seek out the hidden histories of Victorian and Edwardian England and reveal the powerful stories of lives still to be told.
This is a pre-recorded event which will be available from 9am on 25 September to 9pm on 31 January 2022.
