Houdini And Doyle

FOX has cancelled Houdini & Doyle, a show you’re probably first hearing about right now. The co-production between the British ITV, Canadian Shaw and American FOX premiered to low ratings and only dropped further over its run, concluding on Independence Day with a 0.4 in the all-important demographic and just over 1.5 million total viewers. The show starred House, M.D.‘s Michael Weston and Episodes‘ Stephen Mangan as the titular duo.

Houdini & Doyle got picked up straight-to-series back in March. The show is a period crime drama with supernatural tendencies, and it revolves around the real-life (but exaggerated) friendship between Sherlock Holmes author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and master illusionist Harry Houdini. Together with the first female police constable (Rebecca Liddiard), they take on cases that involve vampires, ghosts, monsters and poltergeists…or are they a ruse to conceal murder?

It is currently unclear whether ITV and Shaw are considering bringing the show back for a second season.
