The first and the best

Loved this collection Holmes and Watson played to perfection.
Rathbone is the best ever Holmes.
Stories maybe a bit better but they are of a time
Reminds you of Saturday mornings watching BBC two and black and white films
You feel the chemistry between the two actors friends both in portrayal and in real life.
Also have the discs with the adverts for Petri wine and war bonds.
These are also worth listening to for there nostalgia.
If you enjoy these you can a!so get the collection of films on Amazon(which I did and loved but that's a different review).

Still great

I love these radio plays. Of course I know a lot of the stories, but the format here is new, the voices are great and I could easily have listened to a dozen more. Very relaxing listening to accompany my day.

Missing Track?

Overall, it's a great collection of stories in the Arthur Conan Doyle style masterfully delivered by a great cast. However, it seems track 15 and 16 are the same story.
