Houdini Doyle poster

Houdini & Doyle's New Poster Turns the Crime Genre on Its Head

Fox’s new event series Houdini & Doyle may not be set in the 1970s, but its new poster nevetheless recalls the lyrics a certain Diana Ross disco classic: Upside down you’re turnin’ me.

Indeed, the kicky key art finds master magician Harry Houdini (House‘s Michael Weston) shackled and hanging from the ceiling, as Sherlock Holmes author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (Episodes’ Stephen Mangan) strikes a decidedly more earthbound pose.

The series follows the pair (who were real-life buddies) as they assist Scotland Yard detectives in solving inexplicable and possibly supernatural cases.

Houdini & Doyle premieres May 2 at 9/8c.

    another bomb for FOX

      The trailer looks great but it will definitely be a fail on Fox. This should have been on one of the BBCs!

      Everybody said that about Wayward Pines too…

      It’s a cheap co-production so the bar is probably pretty low for renewal. Show looks awesome though.

    That’s a modern building in the background. Obviously playing fast and loose with historical facts. Or Fox don’t care whether they get things right or not.

      That’s the British house of parliament Originally built in 1097, with the tower added in the 1300s, The current Gothic version was built in the 1854, before either Houdini or Doyle were born! However way you cut it, definitely not a ‘modern’ building!
