    "Best Holmes there is, bar none."

    I've long been a fan of Clive Merrison's Sherlock Holmes. Merrison performed every story in the canon of Sherlock Holmes for the BBC, and are in my opinion unsurpassed. Up until now I've had to wait for repeats to be aired on Radio 4, so finding them on audible was amazing. I urge any serious Sherlock Holmes fan not to overlook these plays for more recent readings or TV programmes. These are classic Sherlock at its best.

    "misspelling of authors name"

    The content of the book is fine if you like a bit of light fiction from time to time but i am only giving it it three stars as a result of a publishing error. I am not quite sure who is responsible for this error but the two last names of this author are run into one I.e. Conandoyle, hence this audio book is filed under C in my library catalogue and not under D with my other books by the same author. In my expanding library this mistake I a bit irksome.

    "Clive Merrison is truly the voice of Holmes"
    What about Clive Merrison and Michael Williams ’s performance did you like?

    Merrison is the perfect Sherlock Holmes, in my view. He is the voice of Holmes when I think of the character or when I read anything relating to the sleuth.


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

    You could do that, I guess, but I rather enjoy listening to the audio plays in a piecemeal fashion.
