Barry Cryer's unique brand of silliness sees Sherlock Holmes's landlady take centre stage in Mrs Hudson's Radio Show, a comedy double-bill written with his son Bob and recorded in front of an audience.

A talkative offspring of the book Mrs Hudson's Diaries, there are plenty of ?reworks, as well as Music Hall sing-alongs, in this humorous and alternative take on Mrs Hudson's life below stairs in Baker Street. If nothing else, it proves that behind every great man there is an even greater woman - demanding rent.

Mrs Hudson encounters everything from crooked magicians and Music Hall divas to stolen gem stones and dodgy clairvoyants. Holmes and Watson are never far away, of course. So pull up a chair, make yourself at home, but don't forget to wipe your feet!
