Doctor Who meets Sherlock Holmes
on 12 March 2017
Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson investigate the theft of books at the library of the church of St John the Beheaded, and run into the mysterious Doctor and end up in an intergalactic adventure saving the world. Based on the 1994 Doctor Who: New Adventures novel, this is a fun adaptation and team up of 2 of Britain's greatest fictional heroes. It feels like a Sherlock Holmes story, with Nicholas Briggs it seems doing his best Jeremy Brett impression as Holmes and having fun doing it with Sylvester McCoy as good as ever as the 7th Doctor with Sophie Aldred as Ace and Lisa Bowerman as Bernice Summerfield, a companion never seen on TV created just for the New Adventures novels and is now on audio too. A very enjoyable 4 parter with plenty of Holmes references and narrated by Watson feeling like a TV episode. Fun for both Doctor Who and Sherlock Holmes fans alike and faithful to what I remember anyway of the original novel.
