This is the long anticipated English version of the long-successful German radio drama John Sinclair - Der Geisterjaeger (literally..Ghost Hunter). Unfortunately, this production completely misses the ambience, characters, and high-quality of the Original German production. I speak fluent German and American English and was appalled to hear the "high Oxford English" spoken on this track. I love British accents but THIS is so over-inflated and exaggerated it is as though it can't take itself serious - it almost sounds faked!. I mean, there ARE Brits who talk like this but not in most of the UK! Why not use voice actors with average British accents? Why does it have to be so outrageously exaggerated?
If you don't mind overinflated voice acting and you are completely unfamiliar with the original German series, perhaps this will appeal to you.
I don't understand why the music and ambience couldn't have been the same here as in the Original German. A worthy experiment - unfortunately it failed.
