    This hugely engaging story of murder, superstition, religious politics and drama in a medieval monastery was one of the most striking novels to appear in the 1980s. The Name of the Rose is a thrilling story enriched with period detail and laced with tongue-in-cheek allusions to fictional characters, the most striking of which is the Franciscan friar William of Baskerville, who displays many characteristics of Sherlock Holmes. Although he looks at the past through a postmodern lens, Eco catapults his readers into the dark medieval world as Brother William tries to discover why people are dying inexplicably and nastily in the monastery. There is something not altogether right within the library that is the pride of the establishment...The old man Adso, who was an impressionable novice at the time, tells the story.

    Four brand new stories featuring the investigators of infernal incidents, in one box set. 12.1: Picture This (by Justin Richards). An art gallery is robbed, and the curator killed. That might not seem of interest to Jago and Litefoot. But this is the fabled Scarlet Gallery - where the paintings are said to be haunted. And the curator has been drained of blood, as if killed by a vampire. Bizarrely, the only painting that has been stolen is in itself quite unremarkable compared with the others in the gallery. But even so, Jago and Litefoot soon find themselves caught up in events that could end in their deaths - or worse...12.2: The Flickermen (by Paul Morris & Simon Barnard). Jago is rather scathing of the new art of cinematography. Even so, he accompanies Litefoot to see a demonstration at a fairground. But this is no ordinary film. Can creatures live inside the film - or even escape from it? Ellie recalls childhood stories about the 'Flickermen', and elsewhere people start to flicker in and out of existence. By the end of their adventure, Jago and Litefoot will themselves be film stars. But what they see when the film of them is shown will give them both pause for thought...1 2.3: School of Blood (by Paul Morris). Acting on a tip off about the possible source of the vampiric murders that are now plaguing London, Jago and Litefoot investigate a girls' school. Due to a misunderstanding, Litefoot finds himself offered a job at the school, while Jago keeps watch on Ellie who they both think is behaving oddly. But before long, they both discover that all is not as it should be at the school. Can Jago and Litefoot track down the vampire before it claims more innocent victims? 12.4: Warm Blood (by Justin Richards). Ellie tells Jago and Litefoot that she has been in contact with a group of vampires and can lead the investigators to them. But can they trust her? With more victims turning up, Jago, Litefoot and Ellie make their way to a house that is supposed to be haunted, and which could be the vampires' base of operations. But what they find there will surprise and horrify Jago and Litefoot. Can they survive their encounter with the vampires when the Old One has decided that they must die? This is the twelfth of an incredibly popular audio spin-off series of two Doctor Who characters first encountered in hit story The Talons of Weng-Chiang in 1977.The characters were created by Robert Holmes, widely regarded as the best writer to work on the series.

    Four brand new stories featuring the investigators of infernal incidents, in one box set. Someone from the future has arrived in Victorian London on the trail of a renegade...but that trail leads them to Henry Gordon Jago and Professor Litefoot. So begins an adventure that will propel the Infernal Investigators into unknown territory, and an encounter with two people they should avoid at all costs. Themselves. Four more cases for the Infernal Investigators: 13.1: The Stuff of Nightmares by Paul Morris. Litefoot and Jago are both suffering from strange waking nightmares. They resort to hypnotherapy to try to diagnose the problem. But meanwhile a Time Agent is looking for them - as a way of tracking down the notorious criminal Magnus Greel. Before they know what is happening, our heroes find themselves trapped in a dystopian future where nothing makes sense any more. 13.2: Chapel of Night by Jonathan Barnes. Trapped in a parallel world, Jago and Litefoot are enlisted to help Inspector Quick investigate the mysterious Chapel of Night run by Mrs Bartholomew. Needless to say, there is more to the chapel - and Mrs Bartholomew - than there initially seems. Soon our heroes are caught up in another horrifying and dangerous adventure. But more to the point, can they ever get back to their own world again? 13.3: How The Other Half Lives by Matthew Sweet. Perhaps inevitably, Jago and Litefoot meet their counterparts in the world where they now find themselves. The Litefoot in this world still owns Greel's time cabinet, while Jago is also married to Xiu Xiu, a bar maid. But Greel's cabinet is not the only thing to survive from his time in this world - there is also a giant rat on the loose in the sewers beneath London. 13.4: Too Much Reality by Justin Richards. Jago and Litefoot meet their equivalent infernal investigators in this world - Aubrey and Betterman. Together they investigate sightings of a strange 'demon' and bodies that mysteriously fade away. Before long they discover a crashed spaceship, and find out the truth behind Mrs Bartholomew and the Chapel of Night. But even with this mystery solved, will they be able to get home again? This is the thirteenth of an incredibly popular audio spin-off series of two Doctor Who characters first encountered in hit story The Talons of Weng-Chiang in 1977.

With missing persons, dead bodies and a Satanist cult to deal with, both Litefoot and Jago need help. Professor Litefoot finds himself working with Jean Bazemore, an old archaeologist friend. Jago, however, finds he is assisted by someone he never even knew existed - his own son. Or is he? Can Jago be sure of anything? But there is more to events than the detectives know. An alien menace is stirring underground. Once again, Jago and Litefoot find themselves fighting for their lives...2. MAURICE by Matthew Sweet. As he tightens his grip on Inspector Quick, the Master becomes interested in the young composer Maurice Ravel. For his part, Ravel befriends Professor Litefoot. But is anyone truly who they seem or able to control their own destiny and actions? When Litefoot goes missing, it's up to Jago to investigate. But the Professor finds himself in a nightmare landscape where reality and fiction seem to have merged. Will he ever manage to escape? And if the real Maurice Ravel is trapped with Litefoot, who exactly is walking the streets of London? 3. THE WOMAN IN WHITE by Simon Barnard and Paul Morris. The great actor Henry Irving is not as great as he once was. In fact, he's awful - a shadow of his former self. Worried that something may be terribly wrong, Irving's assistant Bram Stoker enlists the help of an old friend - Henry Gordon Jago. With Irving's state deteriorating, Professor Litefoot also faces a challenge. He performs an autopsy on a man who has had all his bodily fluids drained from him. Can the detectives discover the connection between the great actor and the mysterious dehydrated corpse? And how does it relate to the Woman in White who supposedly haunts Irving's theatre? 4. MASTERPIECE by Justin Richards. The Master's plan is nearing completion - and he is sure that Jago and Litefoot will help him bring it to fruition. With Inspector Quick increasingly under the Master's influence, the Infernal Investigators find themselves tired and fatigued, as if their very life force is being drained away...With the help of Ellie together with stage hypnotist Madame Sosostris and her assistant Mr Nocturne, Jago and Litefoot finally track down the Master.

When tragedy strikes on what should have been the happiest day of David Keel's life, he is drawn into London's seedy underworld of drug smuggling. His only hope may be a mysterious gentleman who appears to know more than he says...2. Brought to Book. Still on the trail of the men who wrecked his life, Dr Keel gets to know his new associate, John Steed, rather better as they infiltrate warring gangs running amok in the betting community. Has Dr Keel gambled on the wrong side? 3. Square Root of Evil. Following the death of a colleague, Steed goes undercover amongst a group of forgers. As the stakes get higher, his risk of discovery increases and Dr Keel may be his only chance to escape alive. Could Steed be dooming them both? 4. One For The Mortuary. It should have been an easy day for David Keel. A short flight and a conference to attend. But John Steed's arrival disrupts everything, as usual. Without even knowing, he finds himself at the centre of an intricate web of laundry, taxidermy and murder.

    Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson return for four more adventures. On a cold, wet, unforgiving day in the November of 1921, London is under attack. Drawn from retirement to combat the menace, Sherlock Holmes and John Watson are forced, without warning, to confront old enemies and new threats - and an evil which has been waiting for decades to exact its revenge. Part 1: The Prophet in the Rain. It begins with the sound of rain upon the windowpane, with a woman who claims to speak to the dead, with an enemy stepping out into the storm and with the unfolding of a savage and merciless scheme to bring London to its knees. Only our elderly detective, Mr Sherlock Holmes, seems to sense upon the wind the scent of approaching disaster. Part 2: The Body in the Garret. The attack upon the city is escalating. The death toll is rising. And the agents of the Society are everywhere, even in the unlikeliest of places. Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson - outflanked by events and outfoxed by their opponents - are forced to confront the limitations of their abilities in this strange new era as, all around them, the fire continues to spread. Part 3: The Beast in the Darkness. With Dr Watson held captive by the enemy, a badly wounded Holmes races against the clock to confront the mastermind behind the brutal tragedies of the day. But will the Council of Priam help or hinder him in his attempt to stem the rising tide of madness? Part 4: The Shadow in the Water. At last all of the players are brought together for a final confrontation. The warrior. The psychic. The detective. The doctor. And something else - something which has, for decades, been waiting in the darkness and biding its time, waiting for Sherlock Holmes' last stand. This is the latest in a Big Finish series going back to 2010 when Nicholas Briggs - the voice of the Daleks, Cybermen and other monsters in Doctor Who - played Sherlock Holmes for the first time on audio. The four stories tell an epic tale of Holmes confronting a terrible threat to the world. Author Jonathan Barnes is not only a literary reviewer writing for The Times Literary Supplement, but also a novelist (The Somnambulist, The Men). He's been writing Holmes for Big Finish since 2012's The Adventure of the Perfidious Mariner.
