Book Description

5 May 2003 BBC Radio Collection
The story in which Conan Doyle first unleashed the most famous partnership in the history of criminal detection. An unmarked corpse, a wedding ring and a mysterious message scrawled in blood are Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson's only clues as they follow the trail of a man driven to fulfil a terrible oath he swore more than twenty years before. Clive Merrison stars as Holmes with Michael Williams as Watson in this adventure, part of the unique fully dramatised BBC canon of Conan Doyle's short stories and novels featuring the world-famous sleuth.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Refreshing Change 21 Jun 2003
By Taogan
Format:Audio CD
As a lifelong Sherlock Holmes fan I was delighted to experience an intelligent, brave and humane Dr Watson (Michael Williams)who "argues" with Holmes, showing himself to be a worthy companion and not just a sychophantic "yes man" AND a Sherlock Holmes (Clive Merrison) with all of the well known peccadilloes but also a sense of humour,humanity and human frailty. The pace of the story never falters and this production of the first Sherlock Holmes adventure kept my attention from beginning to end. It is a superb introduction to new fans and should not disappoint long term Sherlock Holmes "die-hards" like myself.It certainly left me determined to accumulate the full set of these BBC Radio dramatisations of the complete Sherlock Holmes stories.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent as usual 17 Jun 2008
By Graham R. Hill VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Merrison and Williams do justice to Conan Doyle's story of how Holmes and Watson met and together investigated the mysterious death of a man found in a pool of blood, but with no wound on his body.

Conan Doyle doesn't portray Mormons in a very flattering light, but one must remember that his audience (at least those in the UK) had almost certainly never met one and he could therefore get away with sensationalism if he felt it aided his plot.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best reading ever! 21 May 2014
Format:Audio Download
There seems to be confusion here, as the two reviews I read were reviewing the Clive Merrison and Michael Williams dramatisations. This book is narrated by Derek Jacobi. It is not often that I review a product when I haven't yet listened to all of it, but this book is definitely an exception. Derek Jacobi reads it so excellently that I immediately gave five stars. There is not one thing wrong about it. As you sit back and allow Watson to tell you the story of how he and Holmes met up, decided to reside together and, after his vainly trying to discover Holmes' calling , he is at last enlightened and immediately afterwards, is invited to accompany the consulting detective on their first case together, you feel as if you were part of the drama. Gregson and Lestrade are dealt with by Jacobi with that authoritive air you'd expect them to have and as they sneer at one another's efforts, you just have to smile yourself, because you knoww they're being too precipitive and Holmes will get it right in the end. If you haven't yet bought this book, what are you waiting for?
