221 BBC - Writing for the World's Only Complete Dramatised Canon and Beyond
(with Some Observations upon Previous Radio Appearances of Mr. Sherlock Holmes & Dr. John Watson)
by Bert Coules

It had never been done before and hasn't since: every canonical tale of The Great Detective (plus several new ones) fully dramatised with the same actor as Sherlock Holmes. Only the BBC radio series starring Clive Merrison accomplished this unique feat.

Here, for the first time, is the complete account of this monumental series, from its development through to the very last installment of The Further Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. And who better to take you on this journey than series originator and head writer Bert Coules? Based on his original 76-page booklet, this revised and massively expanded edition provides a unique behind the scenes look into the making of these landmark dramas, and includes the complete script of the Further Adventures episode The Abergavenny Murder.

In addition to writing the BBC Sherlock Holmes series, Bert Coules has adapted works for radio by Ellis Peters, Ian Rankin, Isaac Asimov and many others. He is an avowed Arthur Conan Doyle and Doctor Who fan.
