We're fairly comfortable in taking Dr. Watson at his word. That is, we trust that what Watson tells us is the true eyewitness account of his time with Sherlock Holmes.
But what if that wasn't the case? What if Watson's writings were actually a set of highly polished tales that masked the true drama behind the scenes at 221B Baker Street?
That's the premise of The True Adventures of Sherlock Holmes by Terence Faherty, BSI ("Sir Charles Baskerville") from Wessex Press. Terence joined us to talk about the art of writing, how he approaches mysteries, and how P.G. Wodehouse was one of the inspirations behind his book.
We also have another installment of "As We Go to Press" with Mattias Boström, co-editor of the Sherlock Holmes and Conan Doyle in the Newspapers series. Try your hand at the latest Canonical Couplet quiz, see if you can figure out the story we're referring to, and you might win a prize.
