Sherlock’s Secretary explores the extraordinary true-life story of the bank employees who managed the mail sent to Sherlock Holmes, and whose contents have yet to be revealed and crimes solved.
Ever since his invention by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle in 1887, fans – believing Sherlock Holmes to be fact rather than fiction – had been writing to the great detective for assistance and advice. However, when Doyle first penned Holmes there was no such place as 221b Baker Street. That was until British bank Abbey National opened its Baker Street headquarters in the 1930s. Unbeknownst to the building society, this finally enabled the letters to be delivered, letters that needed a response. Enter the Sherlock Secretaries.
Part of the Aurra Studios True Crime network, Sherlock’s Secretary will harness the skills of the fabled Sherlock Holmes to investigate some of the most intriguing and fantastical true crimes from both past and present.
Sherlock’s Secretary is also in development for TV.
