The Man with the Watches and The Lost Special
The Man with the Watches and The Lost Special FIVE YEARS AFTER the supposed death of Sherlock Holmes at the hands of his arch-enemy Professor Moriarty, The Strand Magazine published two apparently unrelated mystery stories, each quoting an un-named criminal investigator. Devotees have long debated the identity of this person: was he Sherlock Holmes or not? In these ingenious new plays, M J ELLIOTT assumes that Holmes and Watson did investigate the mysterious murder on the Rugby express and the baffling disappearance of a special train.JIM CROZIER and DAVE HAWKES return as Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson, with VINCE WEBB, JESSE POWIS, DEAN HEMPSTEAD, LINDSAY LLOYD, KATHERINE TOKLEY, JAMES CROOK and BRIAN ADRIAN. The plays were written by M J Elliott, directed by Roger Johnson and produced by Dennis Rookard for Hosiprog Productions. The scripts are copyright 2009 by M J Elliott. The recorded production is copyright 2009 by the Old Court Radio Theatre Company.
