Good Amateur Vaudeville
Modern writing with a hint of the true Sherlock amongst it. Very different to usual recordings in that this is narrated throughout like a vaudeville production. I like these recordings and have bought he whole collection simply because of the connection to Sherlock of which I have an avid interest and collect everything recorded relating to this enigmatic character. Most Audible Full Cast Sherlocks are in my collection. This gives me an enjoyable varied collection and no two productions are the same.
These will not appeal to all Sherlock fans: personnel choice. The acting is not first rate. I found the actors still played as if they were performing an amateur production at Uni as part of their exam. Acting skills need to be much polished - very stilted and over react at times. Voice production varies from ok to totally of score. These productions need Professional actors (they probably are but they are not good).
For me, I listen and enjoy with the view that I am listening to the latest amateur dramatics giving their all on a first night. Different and I do not have any high expectations but take these plays and enjoy for what they are. I always have my other full casts.
