A really first class Holmesian pastiche performed to an excellent standard. Great writing by McGregor, great acting by Davies. One of my favourites so far.

Ruined by narrator

What could Rafe McGregor have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Rushed sentences one into another, awful characterisation, read without any real feeling. Could not finish what might have been an interesting story.
