Publisher's Summary

A gripping collection of 15 BBC Radio full-cast dramas written by Bert Coules, inspired by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's original stories.

In the 56 short stories and four novels Arthur Conan Doyle wrote about his great detective, how many times did Dr John Watson tantalise us with references to cases which were never written about in full? These original adventures flesh out those unrecorded cases to wonderful effect. 

Clive Merrison plays the great sleuth himself, with Andrew Sachs in the role of Doctor Watson. The star casts include Tom Baker, Jane Asher, Tim West, Toyah Willcox, Lindsay Duncan and Mark Gatiss.

The stories in this collection are:

'The Madness of Colonel Warburton'
'The Star of the Adelphi'
'The Saviour of Cripplegate Square'
'The Singular Inheritance of Miss Gloria Watson'
'The Abergavenny Murder'
'The Shameful Betrayal of Miss Emily Smith'
'The Tragedy of Hanbury Street'
'The Determined Client'
'The Striking Success of Miss Franny Blossom'
'Thirteen Watches'
'Peculiar Persecution of Mr John Vincent Harden'
'The Ferrers Documents'
'The Remarkable Performance of Mr Frederick Merridew'
'The Eyes of Horus'
'The Marlbourne Point Mystery'

Be aware of incorrect order of stories

Although I enjoyed this book in general, and I think Bert Coules did a good job overall, the perpetrators of the crimes became predictable. I enjoyed his portrayal of the relationship between Holmes and Watson, which reflects slightly more favorably on Watson than Conan Doyle’s version. Sadly, the stories seem to have been put together in the wrong order, part 2 of the Malbern murders appearing before part 1. Unless the producers have done this on purpose for some unfathomable reason that I cannot possibly guess at.

The Further Adventures of Sherlock Holmes.

Highly recommend! Just like Sherlock on old radio shows or perhaps Rathbone or Brett. Beware Chapter 13 is part two to Chapter 16. Caution scene change without much notice. Excellent story lines one may not have published in the Strand.

Audio really bad,

Even with a powerful external speaker could not hear the narrators, had to put my iPad, 2inches from my ear. I think the stories might have been ok. Save your money until they re-record this one.

One of the best radio programs out there

I love how it sounds like a typical day in the life of....
Just conversations, walking, murder, eating. Etc.
It's the closet to, that I can get, to the "real life" of Holmes and Watson. Plus it has Tom Baker for anyone a fan of the Doctor.
Of course Jeremy Brett will always be my Sherlock Holmes for my visual and for my Holmes all together. But for listening, it's Clive.

Some people get it

Some people get it, some people understand. Through their love of the original work they have been able to gleam and grasp a deep understanding of Sherlock Holmes and all the characters who live in and revolve around 221 Baker Street, along with Lyndsey Faye and Loren D. Estleman , Bert Coules is one of the best Sherlock pastiche writers out there. The voices are authentic, the atmosphere is foggy, the stories can be dark but smart , the banter is great , Dr. Watson is capable and as loyal as every and Sherlock is of course his normal manic, brooding, clever self. Clive Merrison and Andrew Sachs are fantastic along side the other actors and the BBC sound production. For me the success of any work is founded heavily on "re-watchability", and it is safe to say I will defiantly be re-listening to these productions many times.

A Very Worthy Sherlock

I would recommend this audiobook to fans of Sherlock. Better than anyone else I have read so far, at bringing Conan Doyle’s character to life once more. Not quite Conan Doyle’s depth, but very enjoyable nonetheless.

Brilliant new adventures written and performed with finesse and spirit!

Just enough left to the imagination to encourage a close listen, these new stories woven from the scant threads Conan Doyle drop-stitched throughout his famous tales, will enthrall the most hardcore Sherlock Holmes aficionado. The performances are intelligent, rich and impassioned with all the twists, turns, and emotional depth of the classics. The two-parter entitled, 'The Marlbourne Point Mystery' takes up the mantle of Conan Doyle’s famous stories and provides Clive Morrison and Andrew Sachs ample space to breathe fresh new life into Holmes and Watson, which the actors do masterfully well. The production team created a beautiful, dynamic setting for each new adventure,and despite a few moments in different stories where the verisimilitude of both production and performance necessitated a bit more amplification, the spell was never broken for this loyal reader/listener.

Excellent stories. 5 Star, except poor recordings.

Bert Coules comes very, very close to writing in the voice we've come to associate with Sir ACD/John Watson. Especially through Hollywood. I thoroughly enjoyed each story; they sound extremely close to Canon, and, indeed, fit quite well in Doyle's deliberate gaps! My biggest problem with these recordings is that the sound is very inconsistent and there are many, many times when I had to rewind, and turn the volume up to MAX to hear a bit of dialogue, then immediately stop & turn it on way down for the rest of the conversation. The 'acting' is very good, butI know I missed as much as 5-10% of each story because of lousy sound, & it became very frustrating. Studio recordings with multiple cast members don't have to be this poor, and it does deep injustice to the excellent writing and reading-acting
