As literary trivia fans will know, Charles Dickens’s final – and unfinished novel – was The Mystery of Edwin Drood.

Its intriguing narrative was cut short by the death of the great author in 1870. The unsolved mystery is now being marked with a new exhibition at the Charles Dickens Museum, in Doughty Street, until 22 November. It follows the recent BBC adaptation starring Matthew Rhys (pictured). The literary exhibition allows visitors to investigate the story's crime scenes, search for murder clues and see the table on which the novel was penned, along with clips from theatrical adaptations. And there are plenty of theories on ‘whodunit’ too.
