Narrator a Little Over the Top

The narrator was overly dramatic to the point of being almost funny at times. He reads Dr Watson as a blustery old man. A young woman who is a friend of both Dr and Mrs Watson sounds like Eleanor Roosevelt. The story is interesting and I rather enjoyed it which somewhat compensated.
