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.

12 of Conan-Doyle's most popular Sherlock Holmes short strories, dramatized, w/Sir John Gielgud as Sherlock. Orson Wells makes an appearance in "The Final Problem" episode, as Professory Moriarty. These episodes were originally broadcast as 1/2 hour radio plays; the content stays true to the original stories, but is somewhat abridged, for length. And therefore, while this 6 CD set is entertaining for a listen, many subtle story points are deleted, making these plays not as good as the original stories. The stories are better in the original unabridged form, and are available that way in a separate title in audio CD format elsewhere in the SC library catalog.
