5.0 out of 5 stars A truly great Sherlock Holmes, 5 Mar. 2013
This review is from: The Return of Sherlock Holmes: 1 (Audio CD)
This unabridged reading of The Return of Sherlock Holmes was made in 1971 - but very few of us will have heard it. The recording was made for the Royal National Institute for the Blind and for forty years was available only to registered blind and partially sighted people in the UK. In February 2011, however, Cosmic Hobo released Volume One on CD, the first of three, with liner notes by David Stuart Davies, at £19.99. The audio format enabled Peter Cushing (as it did that other wonderful Holmes, Douglas Wilmer) to display a remarkable range of voices and accents, which he rarely had the chance to use on film or television. It's been said that you really need an actor who's played Dr Watson to narrate the stories - but however he may be identified in our minds with the Detective, Peter Cushing, in sound alone, is an entirely credible Doctor. And then there are the other characters, major and minor, all depicted as believable individual human beings... Cushing does full justice to the atmosphere, the excitement, the humour and the ingenuity of these tales. What a bonus for us that the recordings should at last become available to the general public!
