What the Critics Say

"The cast is perfection: just to listen to John Gielgudwould be pleasure enough, but each cast member is terrific." (AudioFile)
"It will come as no surprise that Gielgud and Richardson, as Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson, are as perfect a pairing as are the fictional detective team." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Very entertaining. A lovely listen."

    This was a wonderful performance by some legendary actors from a time long gone, sadly.
    Timeless and very entertaining.

    I love the Sherlock Holmes series. The stories are well acted and the plots are to die for, no pun intended!

    "wonderfully told stories"
    What made the experience of listening to Sherlock Holmes the most enjoyable?

    The music, the plots, the story telling. It was all superb. I love the way John Gielgud plays the part of Sherlock Holmes. On audio no one ( except maybe Basil Rathbone ) could have played the role better.
