The big box set release for this month is The Ordeals of Sherlock Holmes: four stories told from four different periods in the life of the great detective, starring Nicholas Briggs and Richard Earl. Writer Jonathan Barnes explains how he approached the task and why he can never leave Holmes behind.

Dorian's back for a Christmas tale: The Mayfair Monster. Co-writers Jolyon Westhorpe and Alexander Vlahos (aka Dorian Gray himself) reveal where they got their ideas from.
