In 1998 BBC Radio finished its dramatization of the entire Sherlock Holmes canon, becoming the first production company to do so. The four novels are separate, while the stories are grouped under titles that match the original book publications. The cassettes feature excellent performances by Clive Merrison as Holmes, Michael Williams as Watson, and a well-chosen cast; accurate, unobtrusive sound effects; and moody ambience enhanced by soulful violin music. Aficionados of Basil Rathbone's Holmes will find Merrison more irritable, but just as sharp, incisive and effective. D.W. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 00]
