    "My definitive Radio Holmes"

    Many moons ago I used to own all of these Carleton Hobbs/Norman Shelley performances as Holmes & Watson on audiotape, so it was lovely finding at least some of them here on Audible. Despite being recorded in the 50s and 60s the sound quality is good enough. Hobbs and Shelley work very well together as the detecting duo, with a fine balance between their voices, one acerbic and quick, the other bluff and hearty. I adored the way they had Dr Watson open every episode with a gurumphing cough, before launching into the story. Two faults mark this set down from a 5-star listen. Firstly, the choice of stories includes several of his darker tales (The Cardboard Box, The Crooked Man etc), so it's not always a light listen. And secondly, there's a rather unnecessary and slightly pointless introduction to each story by the ex-editor of a Holmes publication. Having listened to these once, it would have been nice to be able to edit those bits out!
