What to expect

Clive Merrison stars as the enduringly popular sleuth with Michael Williams as Watson in this collection of stories from the unique, fully dramatised BBC Radio 4 canon. In these eight intriguing tales, Holmes and Watson solve cases that range from the suspicious to the downright strange. They encounter mysteries as diverse as vanishing staff, secret plans and eccentric lodgers as Holmes is struck down by a rare tropical disease and, later, lured away from retirement to help his country on the eve of war. The dramatised stories are “Wisteria Lodge”, “The Cardboard Box”, “The Red Circle”, “The Bruce Partington Plans”, “The Dying Detective”, “The Disappearance of Lady Frances Carfax”, “The Devil’s Foot” and “His Last Bow”. Gripping, suspenseful and hugely entertaining, these acclaimed dramatisations bring the world of Holmes and Watson to life, and are guaranteed to appeal to any fan of the great detective.
