THE BOOK OF THE SERIES
The most engaging and informative non-fiction Sherlock Holmes book I've read in many long years. Charles Prepolec, writer, editor, Sherlockian commentator.
221 BBC is a detailed but informal look behind the scenes of the complete Sherlock Holmes project, both the Conan Doyle dramatisations and the four follow-up series of Further Adventures.
Originally released as a slim monograph, this 2014 revised edition is completely updated, expanded to nearly 300 pages and has a new foreword by Clive Merrison, the actor who starred as Holmes in every episode.
Published in the USA by leading Sherlockian specialists Gasogene Books and lavishly illustrated, the book includes many script extracts (including some from unproduced programmes), full cast and crew credits and the complete script of the acclaimed Further Adventures episode The Abergavenny Murder.
221 BBC is available now from the Gasogene Books website or direct from Bert Coules.
