Could have been better

I was disappointed in this as the production values are quite poor. The episodes are in no order what so ever so the actors chop and change , the references to the next episode at the end of each make no sense and the sound isn't brilliant- I know they are old recordings but some episodes are unlistenable to through headphones. Some of the same episodes are available on Murder By Moonlight where the quality is better so I'd suggest you download that instead.

It's a shame as the stories and actors are great just let down by the reproduction efforts at PDQ.

Period piece

Don't expect award winning radio, but this does have some charm. I wish they had arranged them in some order, even if episodes have been lost. Nigel Bruce's avuncular Watson amuses; doctors must have been less academic in those days (London graduates at least!). Rathbone is of course one of the classic Holmes actors, and the other 2 don't cut it so well. It's not Radio 4, either, so ads almost exceed story. (Thank God for the BBC!) You'll know all about "Petri wine" - strange to hear of such luxury in USA when wartime Europe was on rations, at best - but at least it becomes the subject of gentle banter between presenter and Bruce. (The recurring naughty puppies help, too, but it's so strange to hear such open encouragement of smoking, drinking and eating to our 21st century ears.). Some of the stories are based on Doyle but most not, and many don't really hold together, if you think about them too much, but are ingenious and entertaining if you accept them as intended - a lot worse turns up on modern TV! There's also a Public Service Announcement function sometimes, encouraging buying Victory Bonds, supporting troops overseas and returning veterans, fundraising research into polio. I liked that little bit of social history, just wish it was in order.

Old Radio at it's best

If you could sum up The New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes: 60-Episode Set in three words, what would they be?

The characters of Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson are played brilliantly by Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce. If you don't like old radio and Sherlock Holmes, this may not appeal to you.It is a walk back to another era with some frankly loveable actors who never fail to entertain.

What did you like best about this story?

Nigel Bruce and Basil Rathbone as actors and the introduction given each week by Dr Watson and Harry Bartel.

Which scene was your favorite?

All

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, it is designed to listen to an episode at a time.

Any additional comments?

Come on Watson, the game's afoot...............

Out of order stories, but a good listen

For what ever reason, the stories aren't in the order that they were recorded in, so it is a little confusing when they hint at the next episode that either already happened, or is so far down the line you'd forget. Other than that it's a good listen, The advertisement can be a little annoying at first, but there is a certain charm to the way that they did these advertisements back in the day that you just don't see anymore.
