Additionally, the cast and crew performed their version of the entire Holmes Canon between 2005 and 2016, featuring the same actors as Holmes and Watson, (John Patrick Lowrie and Lawrence Albert, respectively,) as well as having every script adapted by the same author, M.J. Elliott – something that has never been done before. Astonishingly, this great number of episodes were written by a relatively small group of dramatists.
Imagination Theatre’s departure from the airwaves in 2017 left a great void, both in terms of those seeking “movies for your mind”, but also those wanting new quality stories about the true Sherlock Holmes, set in the correct time period, and featuring tales that truthfully represented Holmes and Watson.
This book serves both to honor Jim French and his lifetime of achievements, and also Mr. Sherlock Holmes, along with the dramatists, cast, and crew who brought the new adventures to life. Inside this volume, you will find scripts from the authors who wrote about Holmes for Imagination Theatre, representing some of the finest Holmesian storytelling to be found, and honoring the man described by Watson as “the best and wisest . . . whom I have ever known.”
All royalties from this collection are being donated by the writers for the benefit of the preservation of Undershaw, one of the former homes of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
