Wonderful stories

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle would have been proud. Sadly, I can't say the same for his estate since they did not receive the royalties they would have otherwise. Bravo for the new writers creativity!

Absolutely marvellous

I used to own this collection on cassette years ago, I'm so pleased to have rediscovered them. Superb performances, so very enjoyable. A little concise if you're used to listening to the 'full ' versions but I defy anyone not to find them extremely satisfying listening.

Great stories and performance.

Brilliant performances by Sir John Gielgud as Sherlock Holmes and Sir Ralph Richardson as Doctor Watson. Orson Welles is a brilliant Professor Moriarty.

Well done!

An excellent adaptation and dramatisation of some classic detective tales. Orson Welles does an excellent representation of Prof Moriarty.

Classic Holmes and Watson.

Possibly the best Holmes and Watson to many.
Yes cumberbatch and others are more up to date but this is how Doyle meant the stories to be told.
And radford is the best Holmes of all time.
