Thanks, Charles.

I really never had much interest in Sherlock Holmes. However, once again, I caught a show on XM164 and it sucked me in. I forgot the episode, but it is with Sir John Gielgud as Sherlock Holmes. Enjoyed it very much and will be sure to download a few shows.

You're quite welcome Brad, Shirley. I love the old Sherlock Holmes movies too. I can remember watching them on saturday mornings with Charlie Chan and Ma & Pa Kettle being swapped in on occasion. I also love the original stories, and have a 2 vol. copy of the Annotated Sherlock Holmes that I found some yrs back at my local used bookstore. The movies with Jeremy Brett may have stayed closer to the original stories, but Basil Rathbone is still the one I think of when I think of the character of Holmes.

That sounds to me like the Adventure of the Norwood Builder. At least that's the only OTR episode I can think of with Sir John Gielgud playing Holmes.

I like Basil Rathbone the best too. But I think Jeremy Brett really plays the part well. I've seen every one of his shows. Very good!

My all time favorite Watson is easily Nigel Bruce. He was fantastic in that role.

The Sherlock Holmes radio series that starred Sir John Gielgud and Sir Ralph Richardson produced 17 episodes, it was broadcast in England in 1954 and then syndicated here in the U.S. in 1955.All 17 episodes are available. I think the shows were well done, but I also think of Basil Rathbone when I think of Sherlock Holmes dontknow

Yep, though Sir Cedric Hardwick's son Edward did play a good Watson (opposite Jeremy Brett) I also think first of Nigel Bruce when I think of Watson, just as I think of Mary Gordon as Mrs. Hudson. And of course Lionel Atwill played a perfect villain of a Professor Moriarty.
