Mark Gatiss (Sherlock, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones) reads chilling tales by the unsung master of the classic ghost story: E. F. Benson. There's nothing sinister about a London bus. Nothing supernatural could occur on a busy train platform. There's nothing terrifying about a little caterpillar. And a telephone, what could be scary about that? Don't be frightened of the dark corners of your room. Don't be alarmed by a sudden inexplicable chill.
"Gatiss and Benson, a superb combination"
The hit BBC series Sherlock has introduced a whole new generation of fans to Arthur Conan Doyle's legendary detective. In this unique collection, Sherlock co-creators Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss have selected their all-time favorite Sherlock Holmes adventures, providing listeners a curated masterclass in crime fiction. Each of these 19 tales, from Sherlock's first appearance in A Study in Scarlet to the late classic The Dying Detective, is a potent mix of murder, suspense, cryptic clues, red herrings, and revenge.
The year is 2099 and Professor Nebulous (Mark Gatiss, League of Gentlemen) is the director of eco-troubleshooting organisation K.E.N.T. - the Key Environmental Nonjudgemental Taskforce. But it's so under-funded it subsidises its work by running a launderette. And the twintub's malfunctioned. In a post-apocalyptic England, cattle-clasm has wiped out the majority of the livestock, there are new months such as Octember and Janril, and climate change has formed a drizzly new season called Hamble.
