Clive Merrison stars as Holmes, with Michael Williams as Watson, in this collection from the unique, fully dramatised BBC Radio 4 canon. These 12 stories range from Holmes' very first case to the epic struggle between Holmes and Moriarty high above the Reichenbach Falls.

I've long been a fan of Clive Merrison's Sherlock Holmes. Merrison performed every story in the canon of Sherlock Holmes for the BBC, and are in my opinion unsurpassed. Up until now I've had to wait for repeats to be aired on Radio 4, so finding them on audible was amazing. I urge any serious Sherlock Holmes fan not to overlook these plays for more recent readings or TV programmes. These are classic Sherlock at its best.
