5 of 5 Excellent series across the board. December 9, 2018
Reviewer: WAYNE KOZAK from Linden, NJ United States  
I like this series across the board. No matter if Rathbone or Conway played Holmes. I do prefer Rathbone but Conway did an excellent job. He did slip into the role easily. He made the role his own after awhile. I did like Bruce as Watson. He was always there when Holmes needed him. I wish there more episodes.

5 of 5 The British tradition continues.......... September 19, 2016
Reviewer: Richard McLeod from RIVERSIDE, CA United States  
Tom Conway had some very big shoes to fill in taking the role of Sherlock Holmes, as it was so ingrained in the minds of the Radio audience with the voice of Basil Rathbone.  Nigel Bruce complements the change-over and helps out with the transition.  Tom Conway was a very good Actor we lost way too soon.

The Radio Archives staff have done an exceptional job in finding and restoring these long forgotten episode in sparkling audio and tonal quality.  I am sure they sound today as good as when initially broadcast if not better.

The case comes in a heavy duty plastic box, with separate inner sleeves for added protection of the CD's in the regular speed and not the inferior MP3 CD's.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED and especially so for devotees of Sherlock Holmes.

4 of 5 Conway on the case March 14, 2016
Reviewer: John Mooney from Richmond, VA United States  
As others have pointed out, Basil Rathbone was a tough act to follow but Tom Conway rises to the occasion as Sherlock Holmes. This blend of Conan Doyle adaptations and original mysteries makes for great listening, and Nigel Bruce is wonderful as always as Dr. Watson.

4 of 5 A Little Dubious February 24, 2013
Reviewer: Alec Wayne  
As a long-time fan of the Rathbone/Bruce Sherlock Holmes films, I was a little dubious that Tom Conway could pull off the role as well as Basil Rathbone. Tom Conway - 'The Falcon' - as the World's Greatest Consulting Detective? Tturns out, he's actually pretty good -- not as good as his predecessor, of course, but very credible. Thank you, Radio Archives, for introducing me to these rare and unknown shows! Let's have more Sherlock Holmes soon, OK?

4 of 5 Entertaining September 14, 2011
Reviewer: Book Purring from CO  

The dramatization is spot on and comes alive in pretty much every story or setting the main characters are placed in. I personally liked how I could listen to the "boat" in The Adventure of the Original Hamlet. The narrators are easy to understand and have a good pace. Unfortunately, the commercials for hair tonic are still part of the audio. But if they really bother you, it is easy to FF.

There is an interesting mix of stories in this audiobook. In some stories I was bothered that Dr. Watson is mostly the comical relief, but in others  you actually see Dr. Watson contributing to solve the case. As well there are a couple of predictable stories and there are also a couple of stunners like The Adventure of the Half-Eaten Apple, the Coptic Compass and the Unclothed Corpse. What I enjoyed the most about these stories, is that if you pay close attention you can always find allusions to the original Sherlock Holmes stories, and that is always fun for fans of the detective.
