Nice homage to the Baskerville Legend

I must admit this is the first time I have listened to any entry in the Sherlock Holmes/ Lucy James series. Being a conservative traditionalist regarding all things Sherlock, the thought of the great detective not only having a daughter but also sharing his life's work with, was not a pleasant one to me. However, the allure of Baskerville Hall at Christmas was too great to ignore, so I plunged in.

The storyline was rather thin, but it did give the authors a framework on which to re-introduce some of the characters made famous in the original "Hound." At any rate it was interesting to find out how Dr. Mortimer, Laura Lyons and Sir Henry have fared.

I was disappointed that the expected Victorian country Christmas, in an ancient manor house, as promised by the book's title, was more or less glossed over as an afterthought. Sadly, It was an opportunity lost.

The narration was good, with Simon Prebble displaying his usual top-shelf work. Wendy Tremont King was good, but not extra-ordinary.

A narrator who can't manage an English accent???

Fairly interesting plot, though no stunner. Simon Prebble was excellent, as always, but Wendy King was abysmal. Couldn't pull off an English accent if her life depended on it. Can't imagine who thought she'd be a good fit for this thoroughly English tale, regardless of the inclusion of an American character or two.
