The case of “The Speckled Band” is a dark and dangerous business – a tale of madness, violence and gothic suspense. Dr Grimesby Roylott (wonderful name!) is one of the classic villains, and the story has consistently ranked among the all-time favourites since it was first published in The Strand Magazine in 1891.
JIM CROZIER and DAVE HAWKES played Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson. The story was dramatised by CHRIS DRAKE and directed by ROGER JOHNSON.
