UK audio producer Big Finish is releasing a range of Sherlock Holmes audio drama, one a month, in November 2009, December 2009 and January 2010. The first two programmes feature Roger Llewellyn as Holmes and are based on the one-man plays written by Sherlockian David Stuart Davies. Llewellyn has been touring the UK with both plays, on and off, for a few years now, so these recordings will be welcome for those who have not been able to see them. The first to be released in November is SHERLOCK HOLMES: THE LAST ACT followed by SHERLOCK HOLMES: THE DEATH AND LIFE in December. Following on in January is SHERLOCK HOLMES: HOLMES AND THE RIPPER written by The Avengers scribe, the legendary Brian Clemens. This programme features Nicholas Briggs (the voice of the Daleks in Doctor Who) as Holmes, Richard Earl as Watson and India Fisher (Charley Pollard in the Big Finish Doctor Who audio series) as Katherine Mead.
The programmes are currently available for pre-order on CD at the Big Finish site.
