from THE RETURN OF SHERLOCK HOLMES By ARTHUR CONAN DOYLE
David Timson's reading of the Sherlock Holmes stories must surely be the definitive audio performance featuring this timeless character. Resurrected after his apparent death three years earlier, the older and wiser Holmes of these stories shows a willingness to let his conscience prevail over the letter of the law. Timson's range is remarkable--he gives perfectly tuned accents to characters not only from all of Britain but also from South Africa, Australia, and the United States. By the end, you'll forever associate Holmes and Watson with Timson's voices. As well as being a marvelous narrator of these stories, his own liner notes reveal him as something of a Sherlockian.
