A middling Holmes pastiche

The stories herein are just that, stories. There is little in the way of mystery and our protagonists feel as though they're just along for the ride.

No one talks like that.

What would have made The Papers of Sherlock Holmes: Volume 1 better?

The volume was fine.


Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

The stories were quite good.


What didn’t you like about Simon Shepherd’s performance?

His voicing of Sherlock was stilted, halting and sounded like a poor imitation of William Shatner. No one speaks like that normally and it was grating on the ears.


You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

The stories/cases were good.


Any additional comments?

What a shame that the voice portrayal of the main character spoiled the whole experience. Very disappointing.
