Though I am quite the ‘Sherlock Holmes‘ fan, I am, alas, quite ignorant as to his creator (the GREAT) Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. I did not, until today, even know he was a doctor. My loss.

Well, I happened to see this story (above) in the UK ‘Daily Mail’, which I read daily, & was both surprised & intrigued. I read most of it at once. I then, as is my wont, did some research. Wow. It is true. It is kosher & there is even a book & TV series available on ‘Amazon Prime Video‘. I sure plan to check the TV series out. It has to be good. I had to share this with you.

Australian ‘Mystery Road’ Detective Series On ‘Acorn’ Is Intriguing & Educational.

Click to access the ‘Acorn’ Webpage for this series.



Found it, like so many other gems on ‘Acorn‘, while browsing the catalog looking for good mystery/detective shows. Looked interesting and it sure has been.

We became addicted to ‘A Place To Call Home‘ on Acorn — which was Australian and set in Australia. ‘Mystery Road‘ shares that trait.

Tight, gripping, intriguing. Powerful, in-your-face characters. The mystery is set within an aboriginal community. That is the educational part. we have not had that much exposure to modern day aboriginal life and this show takes you there — in spades. Reminds me, very much, of the Navajos and life in and around my beloved Canyon de Chelly. The male detective is ‘BLACK’ — i.e., an aborigine. That gives it all a nice twist. He has a colorful past too.

We have only watched the first 4 episodes. But, they were good. I can’t wait to go back and finish the series. I think I will not be disappointed.
