Intro to Sherlock

I'm a great detective fan and love Basil Rathbone films. I enjoyed the fact this was Sherlock and Dr Watson's first meeting if not a little thin in concept. An easy listen story, the usual deductions - my only comment would be the maniacal Sherlock laughter - odd to say the least...?
