Nick Briggs Plays Holmes for Big Finish
Nick Briggs Plays Holmes for Big Finish

Cannot avoid this one. Sherlock Holmes is now everwhere thanks to Guy Ritchie’s movie with Robert Downy Jnr and Jude Law as Sherlock and Watson.
But you may have missed the Big Finish efforts for the greatest detective ever.
The Big Finish Sherlock Holmes effort covers 4 audio plays Starring Roger Llewellyn in two (Sherlock Holmes: The Last Act and Death and Life of Sherlock Holmes) with Big Finish regular and genuine Dalek Nicholas Briggs in the third drama that covers one of the biggest Holmes fan boy concepts Holmes and The Ripper .

Holmes vs Jack The Ripper is the theme that drives a point and click game that I have just bought for the PC called Sherlock Holmes Vs Jack The Ripper (no suprise there then). Being a big fan of point and click computer games I also have another Jack the Ripper murder mystery game. Amazing to think that themes set out in both real life and fiction over 100 years ago are still so popular.

I have said it before and I will again – the best TV Holmes is definitly Jeremy Brett, you can keep your Basil Rathbones and your Tom Bakers.
