Audible Editor Reviews

Sir Alec Guinness once famously likened legendary Shakespearean actor John Gielgud's voice to "a silver trumpet muffled in silk", and this second volume of 1950s BBC radio broadcasts of classic Sherlock Holmes stories puts Gielgud's talents on full display.
From "The Adventure of the Second Stain" to "The Adventure of the Norwood Builder", Gielgud, as Holmes, and Ralph Richardson, as Dr. Watson, turn in unparalleled performances of these iconic literary figures in this collection of classic dramatizations, which are beautifully accompanied by Sidney Torch's elegant violin score.
