Synopsis

Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson return for four more adventures. On a cold, wet, unforgiving day in the November of 1921, London is under attack. Drawn from retirement to combat the menace, Sherlock Holmes and John Watson are forced, without warning, to confront old enemies and new threats - and an evil which has been waiting for decades to exact its revenge. Part 1: The Prophet in the Rain. It begins with the sound of rain upon the windowpane, with a woman who claims to speak to the dead, with an enemy stepping out into the storm and with the unfolding of a savage and merciless scheme to bring London to its knees. Only our elderly detective, Mr Sherlock Holmes, seems to sense upon the wind the scent of approaching disaster. Part 2: The Body in the Garret. The attack upon the city is escalating. The death toll is rising. And the agents of the Society are everywhere, even in the unlikeliest of places. Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson - outflanked by events and outfoxed by their opponents - are forced to confront the limitations of their abilities in this strange new era as, all around them, the fire continues to spread. Part 3: The Beast in the Darkness.

With Dr Watson held captive by the enemy, a badly wounded Holmes races against the clock to confront the mastermind behind the brutal tragedies of the day. But will the Council of Priam help or hinder him in his attempt to stem the rising tide of madness? Part 4: The Shadow in the Water. At last all of the players are brought together for a final confrontation. The warrior. The psychic. The detective. The doctor. And something else - something which has, for decades, been waiting in the darkness and biding its time, waiting for Sherlock Holmes' last stand. This is the latest in a Big Finish series going back to 2010 when Nicholas Briggs - the voice of the Daleks, Cybermen and other monsters in Doctor Who - played Sherlock Holmes for the first time on audio. The four stories tell an epic tale of Holmes confronting a terrible threat to the world. Author Jonathan Barnes is not only a literary reviewer writing for The Times Literary Supplement, but also a novelist (The Somnambulist, The Men). He's been writing Holmes for Big Finish since 2012's The Adventure of the Perfidious Mariner.
