Publisher's Summary

Clive Merrison and Michael Williams star as Holmes and Watson in the fifth collection of stories from the unique fully dramatised BBC Radio 4 canon.
'The Lion's Mane': Holmes has retired to the Sussex countryside to tend bees. But old habits linger, especially when there is a case of murder waiting to be solved.
'The Veiled Lodger': Mrs Merrilow has the perfect lodger - a gentle woman who keeps to herself and has paid the rent regularly for seven years. But why won't she show her face?
'Shoscombe Old Place': The connection between a dog and its bone has never been more important than in this case which leads Holmes and Watson to a gruesome discovery in an old crypt.
'The Retired Colourman': One of the last cases recorded, the detective is in a ruminative mood as he tackles one of the most controversial cases in the canon.

Dramatised Holmes - gripping, yet great fun to fol

Where does The Casebook of Sherlock Holmes rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I listen to this one over, and, over again. I would place this in my top 5 books.

What other book might you compare The Casebook of Sherlock Holmes to, and why?

39 Steps with Robert Powell - a superb narrator, I have a number of his narration so. This is a stunning story with mystery, great descriptions of the scenery, and Powell makes it sound like a group of actors are playing the parts.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

The scenes at the beginning o f each Sherlock Holmes are best, they lead you into the story in many different ways, always surprising yet familiar.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Holme's vulnerability and frustration. There is usually at least one moment in each story.

Any additional comments?

I have been listening to talking books since the early 80's, usually on cassette. Audible transformed this listing into something that was easy to access, usually of a very high quality, and with an excellent catalogue. Thank you Audible.

Voice clash

What made the experience of listening to The Casebook of Sherlock Holmes the most enjoyable?

It is a full BBC dramatisation

Any additional comments?

Unfortunately, the voices of Holmes and Watson were too close, audibly, for easy distinction. This is the only flaw in what is otherwise a superb broadcast.
