Definitive

To say these adaptations are the best still feels like an understatement. This quality could never be bettered. Monumental.

Only let down by the recording.

What did you like most about The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes?

One of the best drama audio versions of Holmes.

Any additional comments?

The audio book does not have separate starts and ends to each story only one long continuation.
Would be better to be able to find the start of one of the stories.

The Definitive Holmes

Without question, the greatest and most faithful adaptation of Holmes in any medium. Merrison and Williams capture Holmes and Watson like no other duo before or since. They are truly a joy to listen to and the dramatization are enticing from start to finish.
