New Big Finish Sherlock Holmes Audios Coming Soon

Big Finish have announced a big discount on the second series of Sherlock Holmes due out in October 2011, buy you must buy by June 30th to take advantage of the deal. The prices are just £40 for a four double disc set and £35 for a digital download direct to your computer.

Nicholas Briggs and Richard Earl return as Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson, and Big Finish have released some details about the adventures themselves, with The Hound of the Baskervilles among the titles this time around:

2.1: The Final Problem/The Empty House
The Final Problem and The Empty House deal with the ‘death’ and resurrection of Holmes,” Nick explains. “The former is also notable because it’s the first story to feature his arch nemesis, Professor Moriarty!”

2.2: The Reification of Hans Gerber
The Reification of Hans Gerber is an entirely new Holmes story by novelist George Mann,” reveals Briggs. “There’s a cunning identity crisis element to this plot.”

2.3 The Hound of the Baskervilles
The Hound of the Baskervilles is the one everyone knows about, which is odd, since it is quite atypical, not featuring Holmes for a large section of the story,” says Briggs. “But the odd thing is that it’s never really been very faithfully adapted. It is a fantastic, haunting story, and our aim is to be as faithful to the terrifying original as possible.”

2.4: The Tangled Skein
The Tangled Skein is by renowned Holmes expert and crime novelist David Stuart Davies. It serves as both a strange, unexpected sequel to The Hound of the Baskervilles and strays more into supernatural territory than is traditional for Holmes.”
