Over a period of nine years, the BBC adapted and recorded the complete Sherlock Holmes Canon for radio. The series is heralded as the pinnacle of Sherlock Holmes radio adaptations.
The New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes is a series of radio plays, recorded throughout the period surrounding the Second World War. The series blended new cases with canon, often seamlessly. Audiences were already familiar with Rathbone and Bruce and so it was only natural that the pair should carry their roles onto the radio.
In association with BBC7, BBC Cult presents five new (and unique) cases, read by Hannah Gordon and Andrew Sachs.
Banking on the success of the BBC’s Complete Sherlock Holmes, Bert Coules was once again commissioned to bring the magic of Sherlock Holmes to the radio.
