Elizabeth's greatest hits:
  • Dragnet: Old Time Radio - 380 Episodes

    "The Grandfather of Law and Order"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Dragnet: Old Time Radio - 380 Episodes the most enjoyable?

    The entire experience of a radio show, combined with the culture of the 40s and 50s is absolutely fantastic (although there I times when I keep thinking how much faster cases could have been solved with DNA evidence and other modern forensics!).


    What did you like best about this story?

    Dragnet is the grandfather of ever cop show that has ever been on tv - to say it is a classic is an understatement.


    Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I watched Dragnet on tv ages ago, and while the tv show was good fun, all the sound effects and 'atmosphere' of a radio show make the radio show superior.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I like the tribute at the end of each episode to a fallen police officer - officers that were killed in the line of duty 50+ years ago are memorialized again.


    Any additional comments?

    There is a fair amount of variability in sound/audio quality (which is why I only gave the performance 4 stars - the actual performance is great, but the occasional audio issues made me downgrade it), but it generally doesn't take away from the listening experience.

  • "A Short, Fun and Fast-Paced Listen"

    2 of 2 helpful votes

    I really liked McDermid's female PI, Kate Brannigan, in the two earlier novels I have read, and I totally enjoyed this BBC dramatization.

    The narrator does a great job as Kate, who is a spunky and creative detective with fighting skills and connections to the less-savory characters of society. The characters are not really deeply developed, as this is a Kate and Plot driven plot - but it's a good, light listen for sure, has some fun twists, and excitement thrown in, too.

    If you are not familiar with dramatized audio books - please note: this is not a full reading of the actual book, but rather, the book has been adapted into a script that is performed by various actors. Kind of like watching TV, but no need for visuals. Hence, dramatized books are quite a bit shorter than an actual audio book. Personally, I really enjoy a good dramatized book - often for lulling me to sleep at night instead of dumb TV shows; sometimes they are perfect for a shortish drive; other times they just fill a blank space while I'm cooking or whatever. In any case, all the BBC productions I've listened to are extremely well-done, and this one is no different.
