Would you consider the audio edition of Sherlock Holmes - Holmes and the Ripper to be better than the print version?
Haven't seen the print version
What did you like best about this story?
It's quick paced and logical and seems a reasonable explanation to the Ripper mystery
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I was a little irritated by the revelation of Holmes' past, but I got over it.
Any additional comments?
Without giving too much away, Big Finish's Holmes & the Ripper is an entertaining audio drama that appears to be based on the Christopher Plummer movie Murder by Decree as well as the books, The Ripper File by Elwyn Jones and John Lloyd and Jack the Ripper: The Final Solution by Stephen Knight. I always thought that the Ripper solution made sense in that material and it's still as compelling.
If I have any negative comments it's that the special effects are sometimes muddled. It is hard to tell what is happening when there's sounds of scuffles, footsteps, etc. And the background music, at times, overpowers the foreground action.
But that's only a minor quibble. This audio drama is perfect for a long commute or a quiet evening with headphones.
Nicholas Briggs makes a wonderful Holmes. Richard Earl plays Watson as a hearty companion and adds some comic relief (though not as much as Nigel Bruce did).

the story being about ripper wasn't bad in itself. but the actions and personality of Watson was annoying. his jealousy and seemingly greed and. temper was distracting as was Sherlock's romance. Acting was fine
