Description-

    The great Sir John Gielgud stars as the sleuth of Baker Street, with Ralph Richardson as his venerable companion, Dr. Watson, and Orson Welles as the nefariousProfessor Moriarty. With three giants of the theater in such colorful roles, it’s no mystery why this collectionwas so popular on cassette.

    “The Blue Carbuncle”

    “A Case of Identity”

    “Charles August Milverton”

    “The Dying Detective”

    “The Final Problem”

    “The Golden Pince-Nez”

    “The Norwood Builder”

    “A Scandal in Bohemia”

    “The Second Stain”

    “The Six Napoleons”

    “The Solitary Cyclist”

    “The Speckled Band”

About the Author-
  • SIR ARTHUR CONAN DOYLE was born in Edinburgh in 1859. Hoping to augment his income as an eye specialist, he wrote his first story feature the detective Sherlock Holmes. Fifty-nine more adventures followed. Once, wearying of Holmes, his creator killed him off, but was forced by popular demand to resurrect him. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle died in Sussex in 1930.

Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine How could you go wrong with a cast like this? A beautifully realized production of the timeless classics of Sherlock Holmes is done as radio theater. With only the necessary addition of conversation to bridge the action between dialogues these 12 stories remain very faithful to the originals. The violin music, meant to be Holmes himself, I daresay, between each story does get a bit tiresome as it was meant to be coming out of radio speakers and not headphones. The cast is perfection; just to listen to John Gielgud would be pleasure enough, but each cast member is terrific. One other nice feature is the length of each story being one side per tape, which makes it easy to plan listening time. D.G. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine
  • --Publishers Weekly

    "It will come as no surprise that Gielgud and Richardson, as Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson, are as perfect a pairing as are the fictional detective team."

  • --AudioFile

    “The cast is perfection: just to listen to John Gielgudwould be pleasure enough, but each cast member is terrific.”
