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

I own all of these full casts & this is one of my favourites and as usual Clive is brilliant as the radio Sherlock with his wit & intense vigour that makes Holmes what we love, which I have had to repeat for each and every set in this massive collection.

Unfortunately As Michael Williams suddenly passed away during the making of these shows, his quick replacement Dr Watson is not up to standard but is passable under the circumstances as the BBC had no choice but to fill the part a.s.a.p. within hours.

This set of 4 are not the popular usual stories we see on TV. If it was not for this collection I would never have heard them which would be sad as I actually like them all, with three of them being my favourites. I regularly listen to this massive collection which I treasure and so glad we have them from for they are quite difficult to get hold of otherwise and having being in touch with Bert Coules, I know the BBC have no intentions for further productions.
