Funny, but it didn't seem like Doyle

I could hear John de Lancie's writing far more in this edition than I could hear Arthur Conan Doyle. The production was funny, mostly, and definitely cheesy, but unfortunately it sometimes also seemed racist. I'm not sure if that was due to how Doyle wrote it, how de Lancie wrote his adaptation, or how the narrator chose to play the part of Gomez.

I now have a decent sense of the book, but I'm going to have to listen to another edition to actually hear it in Doyle's words.
