‘Briggs is indisputably brilliant’ Fiona Stanley NG Magazine.
Sherlock Holmes is without doubt one of the most famous figures in the history of mystery fiction.
Conan Doyle's beloved sleuth is back in brand new adventures and adaptations brought to life by Big Finish.
Join Nicholas Briggs as Holmes and Richard Earl as Watson as they go head to head with new and old villains alike and once again solve the unsolvable!
'The latest big player in the game is production company Big Finish, which made its name with books and audio plays based on Doctor Who. In 2009 the company released recordings of Sherlock Holmes - The Last Act and Sherlock Holmes - The Death and Life, the two one-man plays written by David Stuart Davies for the actor Roger Llewellyn. Thanks to Llewellyn's superb performances, Davies's inspired scripts, and to the careful supervision of Nicholas Briggs, these are productions to treasure. Briggs, who had played Holmes on stage with style and authority, takes the lead in the rest of the Big Finish productions, with Richard Earl as his stalwart Watson. Beginning with Brian Clemens's sensational play Holmes and the Ripper, they alternate Conan Doyle's original stories with tales by other writers, in a series of richly atmospheric and exciting dramas that shows no sign of flagging.'
