Publisher's Summary

The Final Problem by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Adapted by Nicholas Briggs.
Sherlock Holmes visits his good friend, Dr. John Watson...but Holmes is not his usual composed and supremely confident self. He is a hunted man.
Having unearthed the criminal mastermind behind the greatest crimes in the land, Holmes has found himself a fugitive. But the great detective already has a plan in motion. It will not be long before his arch foe, Professor Moriarty, is in custody. If only Holmes and Watson can manage to stay alive in the meantime.
The Empty House by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Adapted by Nicholas Briggs.
Still lamenting the death of his valued friend and colleague, Sherlock Holmes, Dr. Watson finds himself intrigued by a murder case. But as he begins his investigations, a strange old man enters his consulting room.
Could it be that Sherlock Holmes is back from the dead and, even now, working to solve a murder? The game is once again afoot!


What the Critics Say

"The real revelation is Nicholas Briggs's performance as Holmes. Confident and assured, yet understated, and shot through with just the right amount of emotion, bravado and eccentricity, Briggs has delivered one of the definitive portrayals of the character...along with Rathbone, Brett and Lewellyn." (Mass Movement Magazine)
"Briggs, who had played Holmes on stage with style and authority, takes the lead in the rest of the Big Finish productions, with Richard Earl as his stalwart Watson." (The Sherlock Holmes Miscellany by Roger Johnson and Jean Upton)
"Richard Earl is masterful as Watson, carrying the burden of the story. He sounds a youngish and bright version of Holmes’s friend and has a wonderful way of subtly bringing the action to life. Nick Briggs is a fine Holmes, enigmatic and dramatic by turns.... If you like your dramatised Holmes unadulterated, strong on atmosphere and rich in detail, this is the CD for you." (The Sherlock Holmes Journal)
