In the fifty-six short stories and four novels Arthur Conan Doyle wrote about his great detective, there are many passing references to successful cases that are never actually written about. These four stories, written by the main dramatist on the complete BBC Radio 4 Sherlock Holmes canon, imaginatively flesh out the cases behind those references to wonderful effect. As in the complete dramatised canon, Clive Merrison plays the great sleuth. Andrew Sachs plays the role of Doctor Watson, while the star cast includes Tom Baker, Eleanor Bron, Jane Asher, Tim West and Toyah Willcox. The stories are: 'The Madness of Colonel Warburton'; 'The Star of the Adelphi'; 'The Saviour of Cripplegate Square' and 'The Singular Inheritance of Miss Gloria Watson'. 4 CDs. 2 hrs 55 mins.
