Don't Adapt Arthur Conan Doyle
I didn't pay enough attention to the details of the description but, when I first listened, realized this wasn't the original. One of the most enjoyable aspects of reading Sherlock Holmes is the prose, including quirky names and details. For example, in "The Speckled Band", the cheetah and the ape, running loose on the estate.
Little of this is present in this adaptation. Perhaps this retelling is o.k. for a child first hearing the Sherlock Holmes short stories but for those of us who love these stories and were looking for a good performance of the classic, it leaves something the be desired.
