Synopsis: A 12-year old boy shoots a prominent suffragette, claiming he is avenging his own murder.
Review: The series continues to explore the friendship between Doyle and Houdini, but also throws them a new investigation, which seems to have them pretty much baffled.
The mystery surrounding the boy and whether he has been possessed or even reincarnated. Its a mystery that seems to linger.
The investigation into the murder leads the team to another prominent suffragette who seems to have a past that she is absolutely determined to hide.
When compared to the first episode, which pretty much held my attention throughout. I found my mind wondering off on several occasioned throughout this story. Hopefully this is the one blip in the six episodes.
One thing the episode does do well is comment on the role of women in the early 20th century.
We also learn a little more about Houdini’s past, but also see how Arthur Conan Doyle coped as a single parent trying to raise a 12 year old daughter in a world where the roles of women are beginning to change in that they are beginning to see themselves as more than mothers and home makers.
The reveal of the murderer at the close of the story wasn’t really to much of a surprise. It seemed to take an age to get there.
