A gripping collection of fifteen BBC Radio full-cast dramas written by Bert Coules, inspired by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's original stories.

In the fifty-six short stories and four novels Arthur Conan Doyle wrote about his great detective, how many times did Dr John Watson tantalise us with references to cases which were never written about in full? These original adventures flesh out those unrecorded cases to wonderful effect.

Clive Merrison plays the great sleuth hiimself, with Andrew Sachs in the role of Doctor Watson. The star casts include Tom Baker, Jane Asher, Tim West, Toyah Willcox, Lindsay Duncan and Mark Gatiss.

The stories in this collection are:

The Madness of Colonel Warburton
The Star of the Adelphi
The Saviour of Cripplegate Square
The Singular Inheritance of Miss Gloria Watson
The Abergavenny Murder
The Shameful Betrayal of Miss Emily Smith
The Tragedy of Hanbury Street
The Determined Client
The Striking Success of Miss Franny Blossom
Thirteen Watches
Peculiar Persecution of Mr John Vincent Harden
The Ferrers Documents
The Remarkable Performance of Mr Frederick Merridew
The Eyes of Horus
The Marlbourne Point Mystery

'A joy from beginning to end ... ingenious extensions of the Conan Doyle originals' - Daily Telegraph
