Five Meet to Make Up Myths

Gyles Brandreth explores the creative connections between five Victorian authors. Oscar Wilde, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Robert Louis Stevenson, JM Barrie and Bram Stoker all knew each other and used to frequent many of the same venues in London in the 1880s and 90s. Gyles Brandreth enlists the help of Freudian psychotherapist Brett Kahr and others to find out why their fictional creations remain compelling to this day.
