Publisher's Summary

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.

    "❤️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!

    "Merrison and Sachs are sublime"

    Growing up and listening to these audiobooks when I was younger, I could feel myself transported back in time and seeing Holmes and Watson hash it out and solve these perplexing crimes. Merrison actually holds the distinction of having performed every story of Holmes and Sachs (who succeeded the late Michael Williams) does not disappoint as Watson.

    These stories are part of the original canon. In addition, they draw upon references to stories that Conan Doyle wrote. All of these adoptions are expertly acted (not forced) with incredible sound effects -- making it feel like you are in the room with Holmes and Watson as they solve the case together. I highly recommend these for a long car drive. The stories are absorbing and pull you in. It's only a shame that this particular set of stories signifies the end of Merrison and Sachs taking on Doyle's famous detective. But they are worth the listen.

    "These pastices are among tbe best."

    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.
