Live from BSI Weekend! BSBs Curly, Lyndsay, and Maria got to sit down and chat with Bert Coules, head writer and creator of the BBC Sherlock Holmes radio series starring Clive Merrison and Michael Williams. This radio adaptation of the canon was the first to present all 60 stories (plus more!), and for many is the truest “Victorian” adaptation.

We learn how the series came to be, how it kept expanding, and some fun tales from the recording studio.
