    The world-famous sleuth is back in this astounding 60-episode collection (many previously believed to have been lost) direct from the original radio broadcasts. Featuring Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce, this collection contains nearly 30 hours of Old Time Radio broadcasting at its best. Digitally remastered from the original broadcast recordings, this amazing set is a true collector's item for Sherlock Holmes fans everywhere!

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    If the commercials were heard once, it might be fine. But why they must interrupt every performance to advertise deceased products is beyond me. Personally, I stopped listening to the stories, which I rather enjoyed. (I think the actors are excellent.)


    Would you recommend The New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes: 60-Episode Set to your friends? Why or why not?

    No, I would not recommend this because of all the old commercials interrupting each and every program.


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

    He's a brilliant actor with an incredible voice!


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    If the commercials were cut out, they'd be good listening.
