The famous Sherlock Holmes detective stories appeared on radio for more than 25 years, with a long list of performers playing the parts of Holmes and Dr Watson. The stories were written by Edith Meiser, a self-confessed Holmes addict. At first she used Arthur Conan Doyles’ original stories, but, after the series outlived the original material, she created her own new stories. These were so well written that she was warmly praised by Arthur Conan Doyle’s widow and son.
