5.0 out of 5 stars A box of delights..., 2 Aug 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Complete Conan Doyle Sherlock Holmes: Every Sherlock Holmes Novel and Story by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle; Performed by a Full Cast (Audio CD)
I decided to treat myself for my birthday by purchasing this complete Holmes box set. The item arrived today and I am really pleased with it. I envisiged cd's in platic sleeves, lots of them! I couldn't have been further from the truth.
This is a well presented box set, in sturdy packaging. On the back of the box is a list of all the plays, divided into 16 parts. For example; 'The Cardboard Box' is in Part 12, His Last Bow Vol.1. Open the box (a flip over lid) and each cd case is numbered 1 to 16 along the spine with the volume it belongs to, so locating an individual episode is easy.
Each case,made from robust card, contains 4 cd's and are the size of a single case. They all have the art work on the front and fold out once to reveal a brief description of each play, opening again to present the cd's. The only quibble I can think of is that there is no cast listing for each indidual play.
The contents are as follows...

The 4 Novels...
-A Study in Scarlet
-The Sign of the Four
-The Hound of the Baskervilles
-The Valley of Fear

-The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes (12 cases)
-The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes (12 cases)
-The Return of Sherlock Holmes (12 cases)
-His Last Bow (8 cases)
-The Casebook of Sherlock Holmes (12 cases)

The price makes this a special purchase but any Sherlock Holmes fan would treasure such a wonderful adaption of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's work. Merrison and Wiliams are perfect as Holmes and Watson. Add an appearance by other great actors (Brian Blessed springs to mind), Bert Coules' dramatisation skills and this box set is pure gold! I will take year after year of pleasure listening and revisting these brilliant plays. A SOUND investment :)
