These BBC productions are, without a doubt, the most wonderfully realised adaptations of the Conan Doyle stories. They cannot be topped. To single out what makes them so great is a silly task. Simply listen and be magically transported to Victorian London. The voice acting is sensational. The whole series is faultlessly executed, and appears to be a labour of love by all those involved.
I grew up listening to these stories. My mother would buy these taps and play them in the car and I would listen to them on long car rides. Today, I still listen to them again and again -- and I'm very glad that Audible has them in such great condition.
The BBC did not cut corners with these productions. Professional actors on stage, screen or radio often frequent the casts. The stories are very faithful to Doyle's work. Frankly, I feel that Merrison (despite not being able to see him) is the quintessential Holmes and Williams is the perfect Watson (wise, romantic, friendly and sharp).
Like all of these productions - they are entertaining, fun and interesting to listen to. It truly feels like you are right there with Holmes and Watson in the room -- and are along for the ride. I highly recommend these stories.
