Interview with Sherlock Holmes & Dr Watson: The AI-Generated Radio Drama Gone Wrong

Prodcued by Craig Norris

Prepare for a hilarious and insightful conversation with Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson, as they join the hosts of Media Mothership, Dr Craig & Lord Taylor, for an exclusive interview. They share their honest opinions and reactions to the disastrous radio drama that was created by artificial intelligence, and reveal how they cope with the nonsense and absurdity of their AI-generated story.


[Sound of radio jingle]

Craig: Welcome back to Media Mothership, where we explore the wonders of artificial intelligence and how it can create new stories for our entertainment. Today, we have a very special treat for you: we have invited none other than the world's greatest detective, Sherlock Holmes, and his loyal friend and biographer, Dr. John Watson, to join us in our studio. Welcome, gentlemen!

Holmes: Thank you, Craig. It's a pleasure to be here.

Watson: Yes, thank you for having us.

Taylor: We are delighted to have you here. We are big fans of your adventures, which have been immortalized in books, movies, TV shows, and of course, radio dramas.

Holmes: Indeed. I understand that you have been using a new technology to create some of these radio dramas.

Craig: That's right. We have been using an AI program that can generate scripts based on your original stories. The results are quite amusing, if not always accurate.

Watson: Really? How does it work?

Taylor: Well, we feed the AI some keywords or a summary of a plot, and it produces a script for us. Then we perform it live on air with some sound effects and music.

Holmes: Fascinating. And what kind of stories does it come up with?

Craig: Well, they are usually very absurd and nonsensical. For example, we recently did one where you and Watson had to solve the mystery of a subsiding scuffle.

Watson: A subsiding scuffle?

Taylor: Yes. Apparently, someone was trying to steal a priceless painting from an art gallery, but they were interrupted by a scuffle that broke out among the guests. However, the scuffle soon subsided, leaving no trace of the culprit or the painting.

Holmes: And how did we solve it?

Craig: Well, you deduced that the painting was hidden inside a cake that was served at the gallery. You then cut the cake open and revealed the painting.

Watson: That's ridiculous!

Holmes: Indeed. It sounds like a case for Inspector Lestrade, not for me.

Taylor: Well, that's the beauty of AI. It can create stories that no human would ever think of.

Holmes: Or want to think of.

Watson: Quite so.

Craig: Well, we have another script for you today, if you are willing to give it a try.

Holmes: Why not? I'm always up for a challenge.

Watson: Me too.

Taylor: Great! The script is based on this summary: Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson investigate a series of murders committed by a mysterious figure known as The Hound of the Baskervilles.

Holmes: Ah, yes. One of our most famous cases.

Watson: Indeed.

Craig: Well, let's see what the AI has done with it. Here are your scripts. Are you ready?

Holmes: Ready as ever.

Watson: Let's do this.

Craig: All right then. Let's begin!

[Sound of dramatic music]

Narrator: The Hound of the Baskervilles. A new radio drama by AI.

[Sound of howling]

Narrator: On a dark and stormy night in Dartmoor, Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson arrive at Baskerville Hall, where they are greeted by Sir Henry Baskerville, the last surviving member of an ancient family that is cursed by a demonic hound.
