Description

"There's a scarlet thread of murder running through the colourless skein of life, and our duty is to unravel it, and isolate it, and expose every inch of it."

From the moment Dr. John Watson takes lodgings in Baker Street with the consulting detective Sherlock Holmes, he becomes intimately acquainted with the bloody violence and frightening ingenuity of the criminal mind.

In A Study in Scarlet, Holmes and Watson's first mystery, the pair are summoned to a south London house where they find a dead man whose face is a twisted mask of horror. The body is unmarked by violence, but on the wall a mysterious word has been written in blood.

The police are baffled by the crime and its circumstances. But when Sherlock Holmes applies his brilliantly logical mind to the problem, he uncovers a tragic tale of love and deadly revenge.

"There's a scarlet thread of murder running through the colourless skein of life, and our duty is to unravel it, and isolate it, and expose every inch of it."

From the moment Dr. John Watson takes lodgings in Baker Street with the consulting detective Sherlock Holmes, he becomes intimately acquainted with the bloody violence and frightening ingenuity of the criminal mind.

In A Study in Scarlet, Holmes and Watson's first mystery, the pair are summoned to a south London house where they find a dead man whose face is a twisted mask of horror. The body is unmarked by violence, but on the wall a mysterious word has been written in blood.

The police are baffled by the crime and its circumstances. But when Sherlock Holmes applies his brilliantly logical mind to the problem, he uncovers a tragic tale of love and deadly revenge.

      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: There's a murder and a message scrawled in blood, but the game afoot in this drama based on the first Sherlock Holmes story is most of all John Watson's study of the famous consulting detective. Dr. Watson moves into the lodgings at 221B Baker Street and becomes fascinated with his new roommate, a skilled boxer and fencer known for mysterious experiments and a remarkable base of knowledge. Clive Merrison gives Sherlock Holmes a maniacal laugh and a moody temperament that would seem incompatible with Michael Williams's calm, reserved Watson. First aired in 1989, this adventure kicked off a BBC Radio series. The emphasis on the interplay between the two characters makes this production sharp and entertaining. J.A.S.
