Aurelia C. Scott
AudioFile, October 2005

This is a perfect audiobook for fans of British drama who also love the classic British investigator. David Timson embodies Holmes in a style that takes him to the top but never over. His Watson is equally correct—sturdy and rather protective of Holmes. But Timson's skills really shine in the secondary characters—the loathsome stepfather in "The Speckled Band," the conspirators in "The Red-Headed League." They're perfect character-actor interpretations. His interpretation of the narrative sections, read in Watson's voice, revels in the drama without overplaying it. As always with Naxos AudioBooks, a fine selection of classical pieces introduces and ends the stories.
