    "Out of order stories, but a good listen"

    For what ever reason, the stories aren't in the order that they were recorded in, so it is a little confusing when they hint at the next episode that either already happened, or is so far down the line you'd forget. Other than that it's a good listen, The advertisement can be a little annoying at first, but there is a certain charm to the way that they did these advertisements back in the day that you just don't see anymore.

    Story
    "Old Radio at it's best"
    If you could sum up The New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes: 60-Episode Set in three words, what would they be?

    The characters of Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson are played brilliantly by Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce. If you don't like old radio and Sherlock Holmes, this may not appeal to you.It is a walk back to another era with some frankly loveable actors who never fail to entertain.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Nigel Bruce and Basil Rathbone as actors and the introduction given each week by Dr Watson and Harry Bartel.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    All


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

    No, it is designed to listen to an episode at a time.


    Any additional comments?

    Come on Watson, the game's afoot...............

    Story
    "DO WE NEED THIS MUCH NOSTALGIA?"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    If the commercials were heard once, it might be fine. But why they must interrupt every performance to advertise deceased products is beyond me. Personally, I stopped listening to the stories, which I rather enjoyed. (I think the actors are excellent.)


    Would you recommend The New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes: 60-Episode Set to your friends? Why or why not?

    No, I would not recommend this because of all the old commercials interrupting each and every program.


    Have you listened to any of Basil Rathbone’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    He's a brilliant actor with an incredible voice!


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    If the commercials were cut out, they'd be good listening.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    No one I can think of.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes: 60-Episode Set?

    The utter disappointment of the quality of the recordings.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Basil Rathbone?

    This does not apply to my issue with the stories.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment.


    Any additional comments?

    The recordings were scratchy, the commercials ( a VERY important part of the experience) were cut short in what I assume was an effort to save space and time. I have some of these stories on tape and the quality is outstanding. I would absolutely NOT recommend this set to anyone as an audio book.

    Story
    "Intolerable due to alcohol Advertising"

    My quest for Nostalgia couldn't help save this. The 60 second long adds for West coast Wine from the middle of last century were appalling. The genius of Conan Doyle's stories was unable to help the awful presentation. Lucky it only went to air once a week - any more often would have had the audience deserting radio for marathon running.

    "Could have been better"

    I was disappointed in this as the production values are quite poor. The episodes are in no order what so ever so the actors chop and change , the references to the next episode at the end of each make no sense and the sound isn't brilliant- I know they are old recordings but some episodes are unlistenable to through headphones. Some of the same episodes are available on Murder By Moonlight where the quality is better so I'd suggest you download that instead.

    It's a shame as the stories and actors are great just let down by the reproduction efforts at PDQ.
