About the Author

Victor L. Whitechurch was a British author born in 1868. He became first a curate and then, in 1904, vicar of St Michael’s church in Blewbury, Berkshire. In his later career he was Chaplain to the Bishop of Oxford and, from 1918, Rural Dean of Aylesbury. His first novel, The Course of Justice, was published in 1903, and a prolific writing career followed.

Whitechurch’s detective Thorpe Hazell was a vegetarian railway detective, written as an antidote to Sherlock Holmes. Stories featuring Hazell were featured in Strand Magazine, Railway Magazine and Pearson’s and Harmsworth’s magazines.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cumbmerbatche's Versatile Voices! 7 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase
Delightfully narrated by Benedict Cumberbatch....in one perhaps 10 minute (or less) tale, he gives us 14 different voices/accents (counting his own), and I got such a kick out of each new one that I heard.....Ben could narrate the phone book and make me smile!

I rated this a 3 star because the stories weren't that great. But, seriously Benedict could read the phone book and I would still buy it. He, of course, did a 5 star job using many of his fantastic character voices so who really cares what he's reading?
