Publisher's Summary

"The original and immortal stories of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle…"
Sir John Gielgud stars as Sherlock Holmes with Sir Ralph Richardson as Dr. Watson. John's brother, Val Gielgud, the celebrated mystery author and producer, directs several episodes and co-stars in one of them... as Sherlock's brother! As a finishing touch, Orson Welles plays the evil Moriarty. The shows created by this very special team are possibly the greatest Sherlock Holmes radio programs ever produced. This set features all sixteen episodes in their most complete surviving examples - taken from what currently exists of the syndication masters.
Come hear tales of mystery and murder, espionage and intrigue, revenge and resolution in the gas-lit London of Queen Victoria, hansom cabs, and one brilliant Baker Street detective.

The voice acting in these incredible stories brings me right there to 221B. I can't recommend these enough.

Excellent Classic Gielgud is Sherlock ❤️

John Gielgud projects the era perfectly & draws you into the world
of gas lights, horse drawn carriages & gentlemanly manners as he sleuths his way to the murderer.

Too many good things happen in this set to pin to one scene. They are all excellent lovely full cast dramas to enjoy over & over. I am impressed with the clear sound, absolutely no crackles etc.

I have "All" the different Sherlocks in my collection gives a nice variation to the stories as each actor brings a different style to the performance. I wish there were more Sherlocks to buy, keeps me entertained for hours & for days during these cold winters. Perfect for curling up & relax.

Prefer the BBC drama versions. Still top notch!

Any additional comments?

The only nitpicking I will do is to say that the violin that was played after each mystery annoyed me slightly, listening to it after every single mystery was a bit much, especially as there is no variation. It is monotonous and them same every time, but don't let it put you off.
The sound quality was slightly dubious, but well narrated with some good audio drama noises. A very good effort for it's time.

The king of Sherlock Holmes and what makes it so ravenously satisfying for me is listening to it from the BBC drama versions available on audible. However, this still had all the makings of a fantastic listening experience and I enjoyed it very much.
