Performer David Timson is the ultimate Watson. He narrates The Adventure of the Final Problem with warmth and intelligence. His perfectly suited highbrow British accent and deliberate pacing make it near impossible to press pause. Besides, at 50 minutes, this action-packed tale flies by. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle himself ranks this short treasure fourth on his list of best Sherlock Holmes stories. Notably, Holmes' greatest foe, Professor James Moriarty, makes his first appearance here. Holmesian fans would be remiss to skip this installation.
This is a story from The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes VI collection.
In "The Final Problem", perhaps the greatest of the short stories of Sherlock Holmes, the English detective encounters his most formidable rival, Professor Moriarty. 'The Napoleon of Crime' is how Holmes describes his adversary to his faithful companion, Dr Watson, as they move to the ultimate confrontation at the Reichenbach Falls.
