Recognised as the ultimate dramatisation of Conan Doyle's famous stories, these recordings have been acclaimed since their reissue by Hodder Headline Audiobooks in 1994. They have been carefully remastered so that the sound is as good as possible without destroying the unique ambience of the original performances. Side One; The Final Problem; Orson Welles makes a guest appearance in the role of the master criminal, Professor Moriarty, in his final meeting with arch-enemy Sherlock Holmes. Side Two; The Empty House; The proverb 'Dead men tell no tales' is proved untrue when Holmes returns to mete out justice to the last of the Moriarty gang. Side Three; The Blue Carbuncle; Sherlock Holmes' Christmas celebration is interrupted by a goose. A goose that swallowed the precious 'blue carbuncle' jewel.
