Publisher's Summary

Blackstone Audiobooks is pleased to present the first audio recordings ever of the only two Holmes plays written by his creator, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. This new, specially commissioned production of the Hollywood Theater of the Ear stars Audie Award-winning readers Martin Jarvis (as Sherlock Holmes) and Kristoffer Tabori (as Dr. Watson).In Sherlock Holmes, the Napoleon of crime, Professor Moriarity, plots with would-be blackmailers to have Holmes killed. And the normally love-proof Holmes falls for an exceptional woman.What is the secret of the shocking death of poor Enid's sister, whose dying words were, "the speckled band?" Only Holmes can find the answer and save a helpless girl from certain death in The Speckled Band.When Holmes retired, it created a financial crisis for his friend Watson, who owes money to mobsters who want either their cash or his blood. The surprising upshot is: Ghastly Double Murder in Famed Detective's Flat, a one-act comedy by producer-director Yuri Rasovsky, here receiving its audiobook premiere.

Not bad but not Sherlock

I have all the audible Sherlock Holmes full casts but this one is not for me. I listen to this only when I am in the mood for a change.

The actors are professional as you would expect from the great Martin Jarvis with good soundtrack.

These are excellent for what they are, just not for me. I prefer Clive Merrison & Sir John Gielgud who's performances are brilliant & actually take you back into the Victorian era. These however, do not.
