Clive Merrison and Michael Williams star as Holmes and Watson in the fifth collection of stories from the unique fully dramatised BBC Radio 4 canon.
'The Lion's Mane': Holmes has retired to the Sussex countryside to tend bees. But old habits linger, especially when there is a case of murder waiting to be solved.
'The Veiled Lodger': Mrs Merrilow has the perfect lodger - a gentle woman who keeps to herself and has paid the rent regularly for seven years. But why won't she show her face?
'Shoscombe Old Place': The connection between a dog and its bone has never been more important than in this case which leads Holmes and Watson to a gruesome discovery in an old crypt.
'The Retired Colourman': One of the last cases recorded, the detective is in a ruminative mood as he tackles one of the most controversial cases in the canon.
