Sir Arthur Conan Doyle is known as an admired and popular writer throughout the world. He was a trained doctor and in his spare time a keen sportsman. Drawing on his medical experiences, he created the legendary Sherlock Holmes, although many suspect that Holmes’ sidekick Dr Watson is semi-autobiographical in nature.
It’s the details that make any Sherlock Holmes story special, and with these new audiobooks on CD and MP3, the listener gets to uncover the subtle nuances of four thrilling stories. 'The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes: Volume 3' brings four of Doyles stories to vivid life, based around the adventures of Holmes and Dr. Watson that are packed full of little details. In 'The Greek Interpreter' we are introduced to Sherlock's lacklustre brother, Mycroft. 'The Naval treaty' sends Sherlock into an investigation requested by an old school friend, Percy Phelps. The Prime Minister calls upon the famous detective for his services in 'The Second Stain' and we meet Holmes’s enemy Professor Moriarty in 'The Final Problem'. All of the stories are compelling and packed with the brilliance of a Sherlock Holmes crime narrative. Listen intently as the plots unfold and as villains are brought to justice.
Inclusion of 'The Second Stain' in this volume is due to time restraints placed upon audio books.
In this BBC drama adaptation Holmes is played by Welsh actor Clive Merrison and his sidekick Watson is narrated by English actor Michael Williams.
