Audible Editor Reviews

In Sherlock Holmes and the Copycat Murders, grandfatherly British narrator David Ian Davies ably performs the role of the iconic fictional detective and his famous partner, Dr. Watson, and deftly transports the listener back in time to the foggy streets of turn-of-the-century London. There, a series of gruesome murders with a similar modus operandi all attempt to frame none other than Holmes himself!

It is yet another riddle-wrapped-within-an-enigma case for our Sherlock to somehow crack and solve. But this time, it’s personal.

"The most incredible one-person audio you have heard. Has to be heard to be believed. David Ian Davies creates theatre in a book." (Charles Prepolec, one of the most respected Sherlockians)

    "Too Obvious"
    What did you like best about Sherlock Holmes and the Copycat Murders? What did you like least?

    I the narrator voices I found quite polished. While not English myself I have both English family and friends who are Londoners and thought the accents were fine. His skills were the most impressive part of the show.


    The story foreshadowing was so heavy handed even the good inspector would have know what was going on from the first 10 mins much less Mycroft or Watson.



    Has Sherlock Holmes and the Copycat Murders turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Not at all into every life etc....


    Which scene was your favorite?

    No scene but the voices of Sherlock (think Peter Cushing) and Watson were very good if not expected.


    Could you see Sherlock Holmes and the Copycat Murders being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Not without complete rewrite.

    "C+ Version of Sherlock"

    Not my #1 choice mostly due to the horrible accents, but better than some of the others.

    "Interesting story but Poor production"

    The story itself was an interesting concept which was spoilt by poor production. The narration at times seemed unbelievable fast, barely pausing between sentences or chapters. There were also several instances of cringe worthy "effects" or simulated laughter which were in themselves just amusing. My main bug bear with this audiobook was the random pauses of 3 or 4 seconds that seemed to occur during the dialog.

    If available as a book buy that instead of this audiobook.
