Clive Merrison and Andrew Sachs star in three brand new BBC Radio 4 full-cast adventures. How many times did Dr John Watson tantalise us with a passing reference to a mystery that his creator, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, never wrote about in full? In these full-cast original adventures, Bert Coules, the chief dramatist of BBC Radio 4’s celebrated complete Sherlock Holmes canon, has imaginatively fleshed out three such unrecorded cases.
'The Remarkable Performance of Mr Frederick Merridew': A night at the music hall ends in tragedy. Is it possible that Sherlock Holmes has finally met his match?
'The Eyes of Horus': How could a priceless Egyptian artefact vanish from a locked casket in a locked safety-deposit box in a locked vault in a locked bank?
'The Marlbourne Point Mystery': In the bleak beauty of an isolated coastal headland, Holmes and Watson discover death, treachery, betrayal, and a remarkable recluse with an extraordinary friend. Then the enigmatic Mycroft Holmes astonishes his brother as the shocking truth behind the mystery of the politician, the lighthouse and the trained cormorant is finally revealed.

These pastices and original versions with Merrison and Williams performed by BBC radio dramas are among the best. Well written, acted and folio work second to none.
This is another excellent Sherlock Holmes audio book. I would definitely recommend this for all Sherlock Holmes fans.
"could be conan doyle"
excellent audio. Really enjoyed it
Every bit as good as the original stories. I just wish there were more of them!
"❤️Author Inspired Sherlock-Very Good"
Inspired by Conan Doyle, these are still very good Sherlocks well performed by the brilliant Clive & Andrew Sachs & full casts. A pleasure to add these to my Conan Doyle Sherlock Holmes Collection. A treasure.
"Expensive but Good"
Good stories, well acted and narrated, however not worth £9 for 150 minutes. Admittedly I should have looked at the duration!
