oh, Big Finish also does Highlander
For all Sherlock Holmes fans, a shout-out for Big Finish
The point Jason’s making, that we’re known for science fiction - it’s quite difficult to get people who aren’t into scifi and Doctor Who and stuff to come to our website. Loads of people visit us, we know that, but they’re people who are interested in Doctor Who. So for example, we’ve done Sherlock Holmes and we’re gonna to do some more Sherlock Holmes, but it’s not been a run-away success. It’s been just about good enough, well-received enough for us to do another series. But really I think what we’re selling to, who we’re selling to is Doctor Who fans who also like Sherlock Holmes and we’re not finding the Sherlock Holmes fans because they won’t naturally come to Big Finish.

I just wanted to post this and tag it so anyone searching for Sherlock Holmes might be alerted to the full-cast audio plays that Big Finish produces. Their audios do NOT star Benedict Cumberbatch, FYI, but are cast with a talented pool of people. Big Finish produces quality.
