Customer Review

5.0 out of 5 stars Dogged by evil, 24 Oct. 2012
By 
This review is from: The Hound of the Baskervilles (Sherlock Holmes) (Audio CD)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
With Guy Ritchie reinventing Holmes as an action hero, and the new "Elementary" tv series that has a US Holmes and a female Watson, not to forget the new BBC tv updating to contemporary London, it's good to return to the original.
And this is a superb reading of one of his most well loved tales, a novel as opposed to short story. Derek Jacobi gives each of the characters nuance and distinction, whilst maintaining a distinctive, clear reading. He allows the story to speak for itself. His Holmes has energy and gravitas, his Watson is keen minded and determined, no bungler he. The place of Dartmoor is one of the tales' strongest characters, an expansive brooding desolation, full of prehistory and deadly traps (the `Grimpen mire'). It's a place of stone huts, ancestral homes, escaped convicts, caves, abandoned mines... and of course demon dogs!
A highly recommended listen.
