This is an excellent series from the BBC. It is extremely well dramatised and the voices of Holmes and Watson are excellent. Listeners of Radio 4 will have heard Clive Merrison as Holmes before, and as ever he is excellent.
I would recommend all of these BBC versions of Sherlock Holmes. They are well thought out and completely in keeping with Conan Doyles ideas and style.
It is a clever idea to take stories that are mentioned in the original books and actually tell the whole tale. I think Conan Doyle would approve of the class and cleverness of these new stories.
An excellent buy I would wholeheartedly recommend this audio book and its 2 predecessors. (I would also recommend the complete box set of the original stories dramatised by the BBC and starring Clive Merrison and the late Michael Williams. Coules also dramatised them. Expensive but you will only buy them once in a lifetime!!!!)
