A classic rendition of the famous stories

Narrator Simon Prebble captures the spirit of Victorian Britain in this audio version of Conan Doyle's classic tales. The cadence of his voice adds to the suspension in the various stories, and adds a real depth to the twists when they inevitably appear during the final chapters. Much recommended for listening in bite sized chunks, such as short commutes.

Simon Prebble is the best Sherlock Holmes Narrator

Sorry Derek Jacobi, but Simon Prebble's Holmes and Watson voices are far superior - he is excellent
