Starring Sir John Gielgud as Sherlock Holmes, Sir Ralph Richardson as Dr. John Watson and in ‘The Final Problem’, Orson Welles as Moriarty.

Still regarded by many as the definitive Sherlock Holmes dramatisations, these 16 episodes dramatised by John Keir Cross from the original tales by Arthur Conan Doyle were first broadcast by the BBC in 1954 and in the United States by NBC the following year. Since then we have licensed them out for broadcast for the joy of new generations of fans. Previously available as one 8CD set through Hodder Headline, we are delighted to offer these new editions ourselves, in 2 CD sets containing four episodes each.
