Clive Merrison and Andrew Sachs star in eight original BBC Radio full-cast adventures for Holmes and Watson. How many times did Dr. John Watson tantalize us with passing references to a mystery thathis creator, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, never wrote about in full?

The Star of the Adelphi A case full of deceit, delusion, and theatrical pretence. The Savior of Cripplegate Square Holmes recounts one of his most chilling cases. The Singular Inheritance of Miss Gloria Wilson: A thirty year-old mystery is revisited. The Abergavenny Murder An astonishing fate awaits a visitor to Baker Street. The Shameful Betrayal of Miss Emily Smith A snow-bound mystery for Holmes. The Tragedy of Hanbury Street A complex tale of good deeds and deceit in the slums of London. The Determined Client A family feud ends in bloodshed. Also included is a bonus interview with Bert Coules, the chief dramatist of BBC Radio's celebrated Sherlock Holmes canon.
