Taken together, Charles Dickens, Wilkie Collins and Sherlock Holmes’ creator, Arthur Conan Doyle, represent almost 150 years of Victorian and Edwardian fiction, including mysteries, the supernatural and the macabre. Examine the three writers as a continuum and their influence on each other and on some modern mystery writers. Look at some travel destinations for the trio and, for Collins and Doyle, their Celtic heritage.
