    "Abominable accents too distracting"

    I have listened to other Colonial Radio Theater performances, including the Perry Mason series, which I enjoyed. But I had hard time following the plots here because the horrible, horrible British accents were too distracting. My advice: sample the audio before you purchase.

    "Neophyte Ghost Hunters start here!"
    What did you love best about Jarrem Lee - Ghost Hunter - The Tollington Hall Case, The Ancient Burial Barrow, Lord Wentworth's Statue and Professor Taylor's Final Experiment?

    Tollington Hall case sets the scene for the rest of the series, introducing characters, methods, and menaces. Brilliant! Ancient Burial Barrow is my favorite. Nothing in the episode is ever scene by Lee and Bennett, only experienced. This is the most subtle way to frighten. Lord Wentworth's statue is pure occult detective at the turn of the century. The episode is delightfully filled with occult references. The final episode is Professor Taylor's Final Experiment. It's a combo of science and occult both H.G. Wells, Thomas Edison, and Jules Verne would've loved. Volume 1 stands alone.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Having listened to a lot of old time radio, I expected to know all the answers and what CRT pulled off with Jarrem Lee had me ready to buy the next volume!


    Have you listened to any of Jerry Robbins and The Colonial Radio Players ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Dandelion Wine, Something Wicked, Captain Blood, Ticonderoga, Jeeves & Wooster. Jarrem Lee establishes the line for Jerry Robbins and CRT in their occult detective shows.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yup; and again.

    "Brilliant!... except for one thing."
    Where does Jarrem Lee - Ghost Hunter - The Tollington Hall Case, The Ancient Burial Barrow, Lord Wentworth's Statue and Professor Taylor's Final Experiment rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I highly enjoyed the dramatic retelling in the old radio play style.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Jarrem Lee - Ghost Hunter - The Tollington Hall Case, The Ancient Burial Barrow, Lord Wentworth's Statue and Professor Taylor's Final Experiment?

    The chilling moments as the investigators realised the truth about Lord Wentworth's infatuation with his new acquisition.


    Did Jerry Robbins and The Colonial Radio Players do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Yes, it was excellent. The character acting and writing easily rendered each character distinguishable from the rest.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I did listen to this in one sitting.


    Any additional comments?

    The performances were largely good, very professional - but the lead male playing the young chemist sidekick of Jarrem Lee was a let down. A highly mobile accent and awkward delivery detracted from the overall high quality of the performance. I will still be looking out for more of these shows, but I sincerely hope that experience improves his performance.
