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

I am one of the biggest Holmes fans of this century and I can assure anyone looking at this audio book that its well worth the money. I listen to them at work and even though I'm working in my mind I'm in Victorian London, following the master detective and his companion Dr Watson through the streets of White-chapel and Batter-sea. The ambiance is very well done, and while the stories differ ever so slightly from the originals they are in my opinion done in such a way that they do not detract from the story. Well done BBC!!
The stories, of course, or wonderfully suspenseful. If only Sir Arthur Conan Doyle could have known how beloved his detective would be when he first set pen to paper.
Life, ambiance, music, drama...
