Throughout the early 1940's on American Radio,
Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce performed
as Holmes and Watson, respectively, in
several series of canonical and original
Sherlock Holmes stories. When Rathbone
finally departed the role before the 1947
season, Tom Conway played Sherlock Holmes
opposite Nigel Bruce for one season. After a
change of networks, there were two more pairings:
John Stanley as Holmes and Alfred Shirley as Watson
in 1947-1948 and John Stanley and Ian Martin in 1948-1949.
The stories were written by Edith Meiser, a
self-confessed Holmes addict. At first she used Arthur Conan Doyles' original stories
, but, after
the series outlived the original material,
she created her own new stories. These were so
well written that she was warmly praised by
Arthur Conan Doyle's widow and son.
