Sherlock Holmes is an audio series released by Big Finish Productions based on the original works of Arthur Conan Doyle, starring Nicholas Briggs as Sherlock Holmes and Richard Earl as John Watson.

The line began with dramatizations of David Stuart Davies' two Sherlock Holmes plays with actor Roger Llewellyn reprising his role as an older Sherlock Holmes from the two plays, Big Finish would later produce a long running series with Nicholas Briggs taking over as Holmes and and Richard Earl as Doctor John Watson from then onwards. The series mostly consists of original stories by Big Finish creative team along with some adaptations of the Canon and pastiches.

The characters from the series would crossover with other Big Finish series, including the audio production company's main line based on BBC's science fiction franchise, Doctor Who.

The 2021 release, Sherlock Holmes – The Seamstress of Peckham Rye won ‘Best Audio Drama’ at the 2022 Audie Awards.[1]
