Its a bit of Christmas fun, so one cannot complain about the small plot.

It does serve as a nice sequel to the Invisible Man as well and Blake Ritson's reprisal of his role sits very nicely.

Briggs and Earl deliver another great performance as the lead characters and it really helps that there are very few other characters. Leighton Pugh has a few roles that he has fun with, including an Impressario that reminds one a little too much of a Mr Jago.

I adored this Christmas title.

A wonderful reintroduction to the worlds of Sherlock Holmes. It’s a gentle, family oriented story. It’s warm hearted and a truly delightful tale.

Personally I don’t like providing a plot summary as part of these reviews, as you’ve always got BigFinish or critic reviews for this. Instead I prefer to provide you with what I’m looking for from listener reviews “impression, emotional response and enjoyment index”. I want to hear how listeners experienced the story, it’s flavour and your overall impression.

And for me, quite simply I adored this adventure, I thought it was perfect as a Christmas tale for the whole family and it left me wanting more @BigFinish Sherlock Holmes dramas - immensely.

So I’m pretty sure that leaves you with a very clear impression of how much I enjoyed this story and why. And if your after similar experiences- then you can’t go wrong with this wonderful Christmas, family, Sherlock play!

Sherlock Holmes gets a mystery at Christmastime of a columnist who complains about his columns being edited before they appear in the paper. He doesn't want to take the case at first but relents out of curiosity when a thug is hired to threaten him into doing it.

This is not a great Holmes story nor does it offer a great solution. What does make it worth listening to is the absolute authenticity of the script. There are moments that feel positively like it's out of canon. There are, of course, moments that take you out of that (such as Holmes and Watson passing judgment on their client's political views) but it maintains authenticity far more often than not. Briggs and Earl are great as Holmes and Watson, and there's a very pleasant surprise that does make this worth listening to. The sound design and music are also very good. Overall, I found it to be a nice Christmas treat.
