The Library of St. John the Beheaded contains the most dangerous books in all creation, so when some of them are stolen who else should the Vatican call but Sherlock Holmes?

Immediately, one of the possible suspects seems more suspicious than others. He has no traceable background, refuses to give straight answers and hides behind a pseudonym. However, Holmes and his loyal friend Watson soon realise this suspect is also their greatest hope: war is brewing and an Old God is rising, to save humanity they need The Doctor as much as he needs them.

Based on the original 1994 New Adventures novel by Andy Lane.


Recorded on: 5 and 15-16 June 2015
Recorded at: Moat Studios


Scott Handcock, again, directs a complex, huge scale story with a light touch that gives his excellent cast room to breathe and, again, it pays off massively.

Sci-Fi Bulletin

I truly believe Nicholas Briggs to be one of, if not the, definitive Sherlock Holmes... when teamed with Sylvester McCoy’s Seventh Doctor, as he is here, he raises his game to become part of one of the most formidable double acts it’s been my pleasure to hear... The writing is fantastic, the story incredible and the cast superb.

Mass Movement's a belter, an ornate tale of worlds colliding... Briggs' Holmes is a solid, dignified performance of the old school.
