Sherlock Holmes returns to Big Finish! Nicholas Briggs plays the famous detective with Richard Earl as Dr John Watson, in two new adventures by writer Jonathan Barnes. The game is afoot!
Sherlock Holmes – The Master of Blackstone Grange is out on CD and download today.
The arrival at Baker Street of a client who, unusually, seeks advice from both men brings to their attention the existence of an isolated manor house in the east of England known as Blackstone Grange. The place, for so long the locus of wild rumours of witchcraft and sorcery, has acquired a very modern new master – a charismatic socialite named ‘Honest’ Jim Sheedy, a man of boundless ambition whose influence over British society appears, inexplicably, to be growing.
The detective learns that Colonel Sebastian Moran, released early from prison, travels to meet with Sheedy on the very day of his freedom. But curiosity curdles into obsession when Mycroft warns his brother, in the strictest possible terms, against investigating any further.
Nicholas Briggs told us more in this month’s Vortex magazine: “The Master of Blackstone Grange is very much in the classic Holmes mould. There’s a link with The Adventure of the Fleet Street Transparency which was released on download in December. Jonathan is always working in all sorts of connecting themes between stories – he’s kind of got a masterplan going on!” Read more in Vortex for free here -> https://www.bigfinish.com/vortex
London at night.
Westminster, at the end of the age of empire. And here, two days before Christmas… an extraordinary mystery is about to unfold…
Footprints in the snow, an unfathomable assault in a Turkish bath… Watson is baffled, but Holmes has a growing suspicion that a seemingly fantastical encounter will become a reality.
The Master of Blackstone Grange (including The Adventure of the Fleet Street Transparency) is out now at £23 on CD or £20 on download. Don’t forget that all CD purchases unlock a download option from the website and in the Big Finish app.
