I was reccomended to listen to this performance by fellow Sherlockians -- They said that Mr Davies of One Voice Recordings could almost achieve the impossible by creating full cast theatre with his own voice --- You will be amazed and stunned as well as I was after you hear this incredible work...Was this review helpful?

The Hound of the Baskerville is brilliant, Mr Davies has mastered the Voices, the mood, the story and this is true interperation of the Sir Arthur Conan Doyle 'Sherlock Holmes' I have collected 30 years of every audio tape and current CD's and to include movies of Sherlock Holmes. This CD is incredible. One must listen to understand, I have now collected other CD's of Mr. Davies and they are something to listen to over and over. If Arthur Conan Dolye was alive, he would listen and be proud of his work, spoken by Mr. Davies. If you are interested in Sherlock Holmes stories, you owe it to yourself and buy this incredible CD. I encourage Mr, Davies to continue his work, for this is a needed product. I will buy everything he produces.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Although without enhancement through music or sound effects, to refer to David's Hound Of The Baskerville's producution as simply dramatic readings is a major understatement, as he brings a wonderful range of distinctly unique voices into play as he essays each of the characters creating a marvelously layered and rich listening experience that showcases Arthur Conan Doyle's masterful use of language. The Reliable mainstay and backbone to his Sherlockian recordings is his great approach to Watson. Here we have a warm, slightly older Watson with a hint of gruffness to his voice, that to my imagination conjures up a restrained Nigel Bruce-type voice without any hint of the bumbling simpleton of the films. The old campaigner,concerned medico, reliable friend and consummate story-teller are all present in this audio Watson. As with the casting of Bruce opposite Rathbone in the Fox and Universal films, the reason for the Bruce type voice is the same, to create sharp contrast to Holmes. Davies Holmes is a model of Canonical fidelity.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
