The characters of Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson are played brilliantly by Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce. If you don't like old radio and Sherlock Holmes, this may not appeal to you.It is a walk back to another era with some frankly loveable actors who never fail to entertain.
Nigel Bruce and Basil Rathbone as actors and the introduction given each week by Dr Watson and Harry Bartel.
No, it is designed to listen to an episode at a time.
Come on Watson, the game's afoot...............
These are wonderfully voiced radio plays of some of the original Sherlock Holmes stories - they are old (from the 1950s), so the quality of the recording is not up to the stereo, multi-track standards of some, but the quality of the actors make up for any such issues. It's obvious that the stories are episodes of a radio series, since they each start and end with theme music and a voice over. I like the episodic nature of these stories - I can listen to one or two of them in between longer audiobooks to kind of take a mental break before moving from one book to another. The stories are good fun, and the narration is wonderful.
