Critic reviews

"The cast is perfection: just to listen to John Gielgudwould be pleasure enough, but each cast member is terrific." ( AudioFile)
"It will come as no surprise that Gielgud and Richardson, as Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson, are as perfect a pairing as are the fictional detective team." ( Publishers Weekly)
