For Sale: Sherlock Holmes: A Baker Street Dozen Radio Shows

It’s elementary that any Conan Doyle fan will want this splendid set of Sherlock Holmes mysteries―twelve timeless classics performed as radio theater, linked by violin music interludes.

The great Sir John Gielgud stars as the sleuth of Baker Street, with Ralph Richardson as his venerable companion, Dr. Watson, and Orson Welles as the nefarious Professor Moriarty. With three giants of the theater in such colorful roles, it’s no mystery why this collection is so popular.

Includes: “The Blue Carbuncle”“A Case of Identity”“Charles August Milverton”“The Dying Detective”“The Final Problem”“The Golden Pince-Nez”“The Norwood Builder”“A Scandal in Bohemia”“The Second Stain”“The Six Napoleons”“The Solitary Cyclist”“The Speckled Band”

Very nice stories when I drive long distance

I have some of the stories narrated by other actors but Sir John Gielgud et al happen to be my favorites Sherlock Holms and Professor Moriarty. Very nice stories when I drive long distance.

As I have noted elsewhere, I use books on CD as a travel companion on long motor trips. My only disappointment in this series is that I would have liked it to be more chronological in feel. The stories seemed to jump around in Holmes' career and that made it harder to follow. Overall it was a solid addition to my growing library.

I'm so glad I found this

I'm so glad I found this. I had the box cassette set as a kid that my Grandma bought me but lost it long ago. This is like having it back again for her & I to listen to together.

Fantastic

These great recordings were made for the BBC in 1954 and were first aired in the UK that year and in the US in early 1955. The casting is perfect John Gielgud as Holmes and Ralph Richardson as Watson could not be beaten for a radio broadcast, and this probably still holds true to this day 53 years later. Although I think Jeremy Brett would push Gielgud close even without the visual aspect.

Excellent production!!

Holmes stories to hear again

 on November 4, 2016
By Sam's girl
Famous voices for the well known characters. Good quality speaking and sounds - except for the squeaky violin strings that irritate quickly.

Very enjoyable!

My husband and I travel frequently between California and Nevada. After many trips, the ride has become tedious. We have started listening to audio books to pass the time. This collection of stories (probably old radio broadcasts) kept us entertained the entire trip and, in fact, we enjoyed it enough to listen to them all again on the return trip!
