Meet the Detectives

It's been a while, but I'm returning to London again - albeit the London of the late 19th Century.  Not since my epic journey through the canon of Sherlock Holmes have I attempted to unlock the past in such a way.  Last year I started recording some of the overlooked stories of detective fiction that had slipped through the cracks a bit.  I've read the complete Martin Hewitt, Investigator live last year online, and two of these are archived below.  For this show I'm doing two stories, one Martin Hewitt and one Horace Dorrington - which stories will be announced next month.  All the details are below - perhaps I'll see you there!

Milk Bottle Productions Presents
The Detectives of Arthur Morrison
Readings of Detective Mysteries from Martin Hewitt, Investigator & The Dorrington Deed-Box
Performed by award-winning storyteller Robert Crighton

Two classic stories by local author Arthur Morrison are brought to life in a live reading, from the producers of the acclaimed Complete Sherlock Holmes. Martin Hewitt was created as the antithesis to the famous Mr Holmes, an undemonstrative and jovial man whose detective practice is much more user friendly. Mr Dorrington couldn’t be more different – a hustler, con man and thief, he uses his detective skills to make as much money as possible and frequently at the expense of his ‘clients’. Two detectives, two completely different characters, one brilliant author.
