A fine collection of stories from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's majestic, and somewhat slightly dis-functional, detective Sherlock Holmes. This was his second collection of short stories for The Strand magazine. Clive Merrison plays Holmes and Michael williams takes on the persona of Dr. Watson.
BBC dramas are usually to a high standard and these are no exception. Infact, these are EXCEPTIONALLY good and a must have for any Holmes fan. Clive Merrison is a brilliant Sherlock and Williams superb as Watson. If Jeremy Brett and Edward Hardwicke are forever burned into our minds as this famous pair, then Merrison and Williams are the audio equivalent.
My personal favourite of these 4 stories is 'The Stockbroker's Clerk'. Each play is about 45 mins long and enjoyable from first to last. Sherlock Holmes' fans MUST add these to their collection!
The 4 stories are...
The Yellow Face
The Stockbroker's Clerk
The 'Gloria Scott'
