Clive Merrison and Michael Williams star as Holmes and Watson in the fifth collection of stories from the unique fully dramatised BBC Radio 4 canon.
'The Lion's Mane': Holmes has retired to the Sussex countryside to tend bees. But old habits linger, especially when there is a case of murder waiting to be solved.
'The Veiled Lodger': Mrs Merrilow has the perfect lodger - a gentle woman who keeps to herself and has paid the rent regularly for seven years. But why won't she show her face?
'Shoscombe Old Place': The connection between a dog and its bone has never been more important than in this case which leads Holmes and Watson to a gruesome discovery in an old crypt.
'The Retired Colourman': One of the last cases recorded, the detective is in a ruminative mood as he tackles one of the most controversial cases in the canon.

Dramatised Holmes - gripping, yet great fun to fol
I listen to this one over, and, over again. I would place this in my top 5 books.
39 Steps with Robert Powell - a superb narrator, I have a number of his narration so. This is a stunning story with mystery, great descriptions of the scenery, and Powell makes it sound like a group of actors are playing the parts.
The scenes at the beginning o f each Sherlock Holmes are best, they lead you into the story in many different ways, always surprising yet familiar.
Holme's vulnerability and frustration. There is usually at least one moment in each story.
I have been listening to talking books since the early 80's, usually on cassette. Audible transformed this listing into something that was easy to access, usually of a very high quality, and with an excellent catalogue. Thank you Audible.

It is a full BBC dramatisation
Unfortunately, the voices of Holmes and Watson were too close, audibly, for easy distinction. This is the only flaw in what is otherwise a superb broadcast.
