SHERLOCK HOLMES –   THE LAST ACT, by DAVID STUART DAVIES, starring ROGER LLEWELLYN  A set of two audio CD’s.  In 1916 Holmes attends the funeral of Dr Watson.  On returning to Baker Street he reflects on the old days, and realises there was much he had not revealed to his old friend and associate.  Imagining that Watson is present Holmes addresses this failing, delving deeply into the darker aspects of his own history and revealing a dark secret.  Perhaps Holmes, too, has come to the end of his time…  If I remember correctly, a few Deerstalkers saw the live show at Ludlow a couple of years ago, where we met Roger Llewellyn.
