FIVE YEARS AFTER the supposed death of Sherlock Holmes at the hands of his arch-enemy Professor Moriarty, The Strand Magazine published two apparently unrelated mystery stories, each quoting an un-named criminal investigator. Devotees have long debated the identity of this person: was he Sherlock Holmes or not? In this ingenious new play, M J ELLIOTT assumes that Holmes and Watson did investigate the baffling disappearance of a special train.
This story also comes from The Case Book of Sherlock Holmes. In The Veiled Lodger Homes and Watson are listeners with us to the story of a past crime – but what a story it is! Devotees will recognise elements from Conan Doyle’s apocryphal tale ‘The Field Bazaar’.
Before BBC Radio 4’s dramatisation of the complete Sherlock Holmes Canon, THE YELLOW FACE had never been adapted for radio. Until now! Now this most elusive adventure is available in a witty and exciting new dramatisation by M J ELLIOTT.
THE THREE STUDENTS was broadcast in the early 1950s on the Light Programme, in Children’s Hour, but no recordings exist. And that’s all. Until now! Now this most elusive adventure is available in a witty and exciting new dramatisation by M J ELLIOTT.
From the first volume of Dr Watson’s chronicles, The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, The Beryl Coronet takes Holmes and Watson into a world of high society and high finance. Not for the first time, or the last, they must deal with the indiscretions of a truly illustrious client.
