The new Sherlock Holmes series on Netflix, "The Irregulars", features the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn within the plot line.

I've received a few messages about it.
The Golden Dawn was not a Masonic organization, but it was founded by three Freemasons. Those men also had leadership roles in the Societas Rosicruciana in Anglia (S.R.I.A.). The Golden Dawn itself was short-lived. Founded in 1887, it had splintered and dissolved by 1903.
For those that are interested, this is the book to get. Be forewarned, it is definitely not an easy, casual read. However, if you make it through to the end, you'll be well-versed in Hermetic Qabalah and a number of other things.
Sherlock Holmes has encountered Freemasonry directly (I'm thinking of "Murder by Decree"). But, it is interesting to see this different, supernatural twist with the Golden Dawn in "The Irregulars."



"First published in 1937, Israel Regardie's The Golden Dawn has become the most influential modern handbook of magical theory and practice. In this new, definitive edition, noted scholar John Michael Greer has taken this essential resource back to its original, authentic form. With added illustrations, a twenty-page color insert, additional original material, and refreshed design and typography, this powerful work returns to its true stature as a modern masterpiece.
An essential textbook for students of the occult, The Golden Dawn includes occult symbolism and Qabalistic philosophy, training methods for developing magical and clairvoyant powers, rituals that summon and banish spiritual potencies, secrets of making and consecrating magical tools, and much more."
