''The New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes'' was a long-running radio series that [[SpingOff spun off]] from 20th Century Fox's very successful duloagy of Sherlock Holmes movies -- ''Film/TheHoundOfTheBaskervilles'' and ''Film/TheAdventuresOfSherlockHolmes1939'' starring Creator/BasilRathbone as Sherlock Holmes and Nigel Bruce as Dr. Watson. Fox had planned to do more films but didn't because of a dispute with the Doyle Estate, which didn't hinder this radio drama. [[Film/TheBakerStreetDozen When Universal picked up the rights]], the radio show still kept going -- and was still kept firmly in the Victorian Era. It aired on the Blue Network and then on Mutual.

The show had a standard format, Dr. Watson is living retired in California would regale the host with a story of his adventures with Holmes. Despite the title, the show was a mixture of Conan Doyle's stories with new pastiches, including a six part adaption of "The Hound of the Baskervilles" which sadly of only one installment survives.

Rathbone left the radio and film series in 1946 due to being fears of being typed-cast and wanting to move on. Tom Conway ([[Creator/GeorgeSanders George Sanders']] brother) was tapped to replace him, and Nigel Bruce was promoted to top billing. Despite his attempts to emulate Rathbone, Conway wasn't very popular with audience and after completing one season he left and so did Bruce, who were replaced by other actors for the rest of the show's run

* CompressedAdaptation: The version of "The Speckled Band" is essentially Conan Doyle's stage play minus the first act, and the subsequent action heavily compressed to fit the time slot.
