Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John H. Watson are drawn into one of the darkest plots ever to shake the foundations of England. There are freemasons, conspiracies and plots at the highest level of the establishment. But for Holmes, there is a uniquely personal element to this new and terrifying case.... This full-cast audio drama is brought to life with eerily engrossing sound design and a brand new, cinematic music score. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Nicholas Briggs, Richard Earl, India Fisher.

On July 29, 1981, millions across the world tuned in to watch one of the most televised events of the 20th century - the fairy-tale wedding of Charles, prince of Wales, and Lady Diana, which featured the inimitable splendor the British are famous for and one of the most glamourous women of the 20th century. Thirty years later another royal wedding drew inevitable comparisons to the wedding of Diana and Charles. On April 29, 2011, it was the marriage of their first child, Prince William of Wales, second in line to the throne, that had hundreds of millions of people (and possibly over a billion) tuning in to watch. The royal wedding sparked renewed interest in the prince and Kate Middleton, his beautiful new wife. From his earliest years, Prince William has been a photographer´s dream come true in the same way his mother had been. While he is not necessarily known for his mother´s media savvy, he is well liked by the media, and he is able, consciously or incidentally, to capitalize on this advantage. At the same time, from polo to charities, William is thoroughly his father Charles´ son as a Windsor prince. Not only was William an attractive youngster, with his mother´s piercing blue eyes and blond hair, attributes that he retained as he matured; Prince William also retained a touch that was both regal and common and modest. The combination has been regarded by reporter after reporter as ´´dynamite´´, indicating it has had a powerful effect on William being cemented as both a king and a man in the public firmament, and it is impressive for a 30-year-old whose full title is His Royal Highness Prince William Arthur Philip Louis, Duke of Cambridge, Earl of Strathearn, Baron Carrickfergus, Royal Knight Companion of the Most Noble Order of the Garter, Knight of the Most Ancient and Most Noble Order of the Thistle. 1.
