Publisher's Summary

Helen Stoner consults Sherlock Holmes about the death of her twin sister, Julia, who died before her wedding, crying that: it was the Speckled Band!

Holmes must investigate their mother's estate and the unpleasant Dr. Roylott, Helen's stepfather, who allows gypsies to camp on his estate and has both a cheetah and a baboon running amok in the grounds. But can Helen be believed? Is Dr Roycroft as bad as he seems? And can the specked handkerchiefs worn about the necks of the gypsies really be a coincidence?

This full-cast audio drama is brought to life with eerily engrossing sound design and a brand new, cinematic music score.

What the Critics Say

"The real revelation is Nicholas Briggs's performance as Holmes. Confident and assured, yet understated, and shot through with just the right amount of emotion, bravado and eccentricity, Briggs has delivered one of the definitive portrayals of the character...along with Rathbone, Brett and Lewellyn." (Mass Movement Magazine)

"Briggs, who had played Holmes on stage with style and authority, takes the lead in the rest of the Big Finish productions, with Richard Earl as his stalwart Watson." (The Sherlock Holmes Miscellany, by Roger Johnson and Jean Upton)

    "MORE TALK THAN DRAMA"

    This is a well made professional production taking you into the depts of a Sherlock story. Good actors bring their parts alive & all is entertaining.

    However; for me it is all rather spoiled with too much emphasis on narrated
    discussion rather than relying on full plain drama.
