I feel that she will be sitting on my shoulders at every moment urging me on to share her passion for knowledge, travel, archeology, and of course – mystery."


Jonathan Ford, Managing Director of Abacus Media Rights added: "This series invites the viewer to travel with David on a fascinating journey to discover more about one of the world’s literary enigmas...

There is no better person to embark on this pilgrimage to the author. This will be a sumptuous series, premium in its content and look, with huge international appeal."
