Critic Reviews

"The cast is perfection: just to listen to John Gielgudwould be pleasure enough, but each cast member is terrific." ( AudioFile)
"It will come as no surprise that Gielgud and Richardson, as Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson, are as perfect a pairing as are the fictional detective team." ( Publishers Weekly)

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle would be proud

Never mind the garbage pumped out by Hollywood with Basil Rathbone and the like! Aside from the BBC-Granada TV versions this is the best rendition of ole' Sherlock around!

Classic Holmes

What great fun for a Sherlock Holmes fan! 12 fully dramatized stories done for the BBC starring Sir John Geilgud as Holmes and Sir Ralph Richardson as Watson. Even Orson Welles starred as Moriarty. I enjoyed every minute of it. Done in the classic radio play style with music and sound effects.
