How could you go wrong with a cast like this? A beautifully realized production of the timeless classics of Sherlock Holmes is done as radio theater. With only the necessary addition of conversation to bridge the action between dialogues these 12 stories remain very faithful to the originals. The violin music, meant to be Holmes himself, I daresay, between each story does get a bit tiresome as it was meant to be coming out of radio speakers and not headphones. The cast is perfection; just to listen to John Gielgud would be pleasure enough, but each cast member is terrific. One other nice feature is the length of each story being one side per tape, which makes it easy to plan listening time. D.G. © AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 02]
