Welcome to Episode 10. This time, we travel back to the 1890s to discuss Conan Doyle's short story 'A Straggler of '15' and its stage play version which came to be known simply as 'Waterloo' (first performed 1894). Plus we cover a cast of luminaries of the Victorian stage, including Henry Irving, Bram Stoker and George Bernard Shaw.
