Publisher's Summary

In the 56 short stories and four novels Arthur Conan Doyle wrote about his great detective, there are many passing references to successful cases that are never actually written about. These four stories, written by the main dramatist on the complete BBC Radio 4 Sherlock Holmes canon, imaginatively flesh out the cases behind those references, to wonderful effect. As in the complete dramatised canon, Clive Merrison plays the great sleuth, with the role of Doctor Watson played by Andrew Sachs. The cast includes Tom Baker, Eleanor Bron, Jane Asher, Tim West, and Toyah Willcox. This volume includes:
The Madness of Colonel Warburton

The Star of the Adelphi

The Saviour of Cripplegate Square

The Singular Inheritance of Miss Gloria Watson

Clever plotlines in the spirit of the original

These new Sherlock Holmes certainly capture the spirit of the original stories and are beautifully written. There are four dramatised episodes each very well acted and thoroughly enjoyable

This is an unusual set of Conan Doyal stories. But by the time the late actor Michael Williams who portrayed a brilliant Dr Watson in this long series had suddenly died. With an emergency take over by the most unsuitable Andrew Sachs who plays Watson with anger which is not how Dr Watson is. But if you can rise above this Clive Morrison is the Star and carries off these stories with aplomb. It has taken me quite sometime to appreciate Andrew Sachs. I received several emails from Burt Coules the writer and he explained the BBC did not have the time to find any one more suitable that Andrew was the only one they could find. He also informed me that BBC has no more Sherlock Holmes planned for the future there will be no more Sherlock Holmes
