Arthur Conan Doyle's fictional detective is one of the most enduringly popular sleuths of all time. It is with great pride that the "BBC Radio Collection" has been able to publish, for what we believe to be the first time on audio, all the Arthur Conan Doyle stories and novels featuring Holmes and Watson. Our eighteen-volume series has the consistency of the same team of directors, producers, dramatisers and leading actors - Clive Merrison as Holmes and Michael Williams as Watson. Acclaim for the series has been widespread: "A remarkable undertaking - the dramatisation of all 56 Sherlock Holmes short stories. Applauding them, and particularly Clive Merrison's Holmes, made my hands sore." - Peter Davalle, "The Times". This box set, containing all eighteen volumes, is a highly collectable item for the many devotees of Sherlock Holmes.
