    What a pleasant book/audiobook to experience. I listened to the audio version that was like listening to the Radio during its heyday. The actors superb performances show the story so vividly. The interjection of a character's dialogue with another's, interruptions in speech, is so realistic; it displays the great talent of Arthur Conan Doyle. <br/><br/>The uncanny deductive reasoning, Sherlock Holmes wraps up each case in a neat, clever, conclusion that astounds and entertains the reader. I am taken to each environment by the articulate narration which is only used to describe a change in location, a significant object, and/or buildings in a scene. The story unfolds with clarity and vision through the characters' words and voice inflections.<br/>

    A singular experience

    An outstanding, authentic and atmospheric rendition of Conan Doyle's most famous creation. The BBC production wavers little from the original and is simply wonderful. A must for anyone wanting the real thing!

    I am continuously so satisfied by these bbc audio dramas of Sherlock Holmes that I sometimes wonder if I'll ever stop listening to them. The great thing about them is that they are so layered you could listen repeatedly and find something new each time! <br/><br/>Do not waste another second in hesitation and purchase this book, you will love it.

    BRILLIANT RADIO SHERLOCK ❤️

    As I own all of these full cast Radio Sherlock Holmes; it becomes a little tedious almost wearisome to think of a fresh review for each & every one of the sets without being repetitive.

    So I say yet again that these are one of the best radio performances of our cheeky quirky exuberant intelligent Sherlock Holmes, brought to life by an excellent cast of some of the best UK actors who obviously enjoy being part of the ACD spectacular.

    I never get tired of listening to Clive & Michael as they bring to life the jovial intense Victorian sleuth who has yet to be equaled all these Centuries after. We have at all in the best possible Sherlock way.
