Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

These three classic mysteries, masterfully narrated by inimitable Edward Hardwicke—Holmes fans will remember him for his portrayal of Dr. Watson to Jeremy Brett's Sherlock Holmes in the Granada television series—capture the spirit of Doyle's celebrated detective and pit Holmes and Watson against the criminal forces of Victorian England. In these stories—The Crooked Man, The Greek Interpreter, and The Naval Treaty—Holmes and Watson hunt down murderers, locate missing documents, assist a bewildered interpreter, and unravel a decades-old mystery that began with betrayal and romantic rivalry in India. Hardwicke is outstanding; he also brings to life a host of minor characters, both male and female, that includes Holmes's inscrutable brother, Mycroft. A true treat for mysteries lovers. (Sept.)

Conan Doyle was knighted in 1902 for his work in a South African hospital during the Boer War. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I tend to group Sherlock Holmes audio productions into three groups: (1) the full cast production with sound effects and original music (think the superlative Clive Merrison BBC recordings); (2) the Basil Rathbone / Tom Conway / Nigel Bruce (and others) radio productions, with their shorter duration and some amount of music and special effects; and (3) the single-reader sets, where one person narrates the entire story. This recording by the wonderful Edward Hardwicke is in the third group, and I must admit that when I first listened, I felt a little underwhelmed. But I must say that over time, this recording grew on me. Mr. Hardwicke uses a number of surprisingly effective voices and accents to replicate the different characters, and if there is no music or special effects, it only serves to focus the listener that much more on the wonderful Conan Doyle stories. And it is impossible not to feel a strong tug of warm emotions when listening to the actor who portrayed Dr. Watson in the Granada television series. All-in-all, I really enjoyed this set and have ordered more.

These are done very much in the traditional Holmes story mode. Nicely done. My only complaint is that the stories are quite short, so the discs did not fill up the drive we were making!
