"Out of order stories, but a good listen"
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 which 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.
"These pastices are among tbe best."
Sherlock Holmes había dado ya muestras de su genio en Estudio en Escarlata y en El signo de los cuatro, pero los lectores no se dieron cuenta de su genialidad. Entonces a Conan Doyle se le ocurrió la brillante idea de pasear al detective por una serie de relatos cortos. Empezó publicándolos en la revista Strand en julio de 1891. En octubre, cuando sólo se habían publicado tres historias, los editores le imploraban más aventuras de Holmes, el público agotaba las ediciones y Doyle subía sus tarifas.
Sir John Gielgud stars as Sherlock Holmes with Sir Ralph Richardson as Dr. Watson. John's brother, Val Gielgud, the celebrated mystery author and producer, directs several episodes and co-stars in one of them... as Sherlock's brother! As a finishing touch, Orson Welles plays the evil Moriarty. The shows created by this very special team are possibly the greatest Sherlock Holmes radio programs ever produced. This set features all sixteen episodes in their most complete surviving examples - taken from what currently exists of the syndication masters.
Sherlock Holmes, a mas de un siglo de sus primeras apariciones, sigue siendo uno de los mas populares detectives de toda la literatura. Su metodo de deduccion, su sistema de eliminar todo lo imposible para que lo que quede sea lo cierto y su personalidad han logrado que muchos consideren a ese personaje como si fuera real.
Time is running out! When the Cheshire Cat, the White Rabbit, and The Mad Hatter turn up at 221-B Baker Street to enlist the help of Sherlock Holmes in locating Alice, who is missing from Wonderland, and Lewis Carroll himself, who is also nowhere to be found, there begins an adventure more stranger and curious than anything Sherlock has ever encountered.
When a rare and lustrous pearl is discovered in Highgate Cemetery, it's the beginning of one of the most sinister cases Holmes and Watson have ever faced. And one with profoundly personal ramifications for the good doctor.
For many longtime fans, Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce will always personify Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson, but it may come as a surprise to even the most devoted Baker Street enthusiast to discover that for one radio season the world's greatest consulting detective was portrayed by actor Tom Cornway, best remembered for playing The Falcon in a series of 1940s films.
In this collection are four of the finest cases of Mr. Sherlock Holmes, narrated by his faithful friend and admirer Dr. Watson. What was the horror of the speckled band or the secret behind the curious legacy for men of red hair? These and other puzzles are solved by this bloodhound of a genius.
"These are the best Holmes recordings!"
