"Sir Arthur Conan Doyle" was a BBC TV series of 13 episodes based on non-sherlockian short stories by Arthur Conan Doyle. The 50-minutes episodes were written by John Hawkesworth (the future writer of the Jeremy Brett series between 1984-1994 for Granada TV). Also known under the title "The Short Stories of Conan Doyle" or "Conan Doyle".

The episodes varied from horror, medical to boxing stories. A connecting thread ran through the series in the form of three university students around whom each of the stories was centered : Philip Hardacre [1] (Michael Latimer), Tom Crabbe [2] (Keith Buckley) and Monkhouse Lee [3] (Christopher Matthews). Series producer was Harry Moore, the concept being created by John Hawkesworth.
