Sherlock Holmes Strikes Back is Number One!

The Wireless Theatre Company announced via Twitter on Thursday that Sherlock Holmes Strikes Back is their highest downloaded play of 2012 so far.

Recorded in front of a live audience last August as part of the Camden Fringe, Sherlock Holmes Strikes Back is a homage to the Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce wartime adventures, as well the radio shows they performed on US radio. It sees Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson race to stop the machinations of an evil Nazi spy.

Sherlock Holmes Strikes Back was written by and starred Peter Davis and Matthew Woodcock with Laura Marshall and Panny Skrivanos. You can download it here. Whilst you’re over there, why not check out some of the other great plays available? They’ve worked with a host of amazing names, including Julian Glover, Prunella Scales and Nicholas Parsons, and new content is always being added, all of the highest quality.

Later in the year you’ll be able to hear the second series of The Spring Heel Jack saga. I was thrilled to join the cast for episode one of this and I had a great couple of days with the cast and crew.
