Audible Editor Reviews

Sir Alec Guinness once famously likened legendary Shakespearean actor John Gielgud's voice to "a silver trumpet muffled in silk", and this second volume of 1950s BBC radio broadcasts of classic Sherlock Holmes stories puts Gielgud's talents on full display.

From "The Adventure of the Second Stain" to "The Adventure of the Norwood Builder", Gielgud, as Holmes, and Ralph Richardson, as Dr. Watson, turn in unparalleled performances of these iconic literary figures in this collection of classic dramatizations, which are beautifully accompanied by Sidney Torch's elegant violin score.

Publisher's Summary

The second volume of classic Sherlock Holmes stories on audio, brilliantly performed by John Gielgud and Ralph Richardson.

"The Mystery of the Second Stain": Holmes scores a diplomatic coup when he stops a certain letter from falling into the wrong hands.

"The Traitor": Holmes' brother enlists the help of the sleuth over some missing government documents.

"Rare Disease": Holmes plays possum and traps a conniving doctor into confessing what he thought was a perfect crime.

"The Norwood Builder": After inheriting some money, a young solicitor is accused of his benefactor's murder.

    "Absolutely Excellent John Gielgud"

    These are excellent Sherlocks with the great legendary Sir John Gielgud in the lead role. Once again he takes you into the world of Victorian era as Holmes & Watson sleuth their way to the murderer.

    Gielgud is perfect for this period style, made around the 1980's. An all professional cast with excellent soundtrack of Horse drawn carriages, paper boys & traders selling their wares add to the atmosphere of old times. All four plays are absolutely absorbing & true to their maker.

    I like all the audio full cast Sherlock Holmes so much that I have bought every single one to add to my collection. I enjoy the difference each actor, Sir John against Clive Merrison brings to these works making these a delight to play over & over when the Sherlock bug gets you.
