This new entry in a series prepared for BBC is a full-cast dramatization with background music and sound effects. Four of Doyle’s original stories are presented: “The Adventure of the Engineer’s Thumb,” “The Adventure of the Copper Beeches,” “ The Adventure of the Noble Bachelor,” and “The Adventure of the Beryl Coronet.” Each actor is believable and effective. The violin music that punctuates the text is wonderfully evocative of London’s Victorian era. The subdued sound effects are also effective. D.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 98]
