The ever-lasting popularity of Sherlock Holmes has contributed to hundreds of works based on the character. You can find old time radio shows, full cast dramatizations, stage and screen adaptations, readings of short stories and books; if you can think of it, it has been done. Even two episodes of Star Trek The Next Generation, the popular TV series, featured Sherlock Holmes.
If you have ever listen to audio recordings of Sherlock Holmes, or any audio book for that matter, the narrator, or what I like to call the storyteller, makes all the difference in how enjoyable the story is. Take for example narrator David Ian Davies from One Voice Recordings
. The magnitude of distinctly unique voices he performs of the characters creates a magically
ensconce and elegant listening experience. Listen to this sample from Audible.com
of "Sherlock Holmes and the Shakespeare Globe Murders" narrated by David Ian Davies: Listen
Whatever has sustained this fictional detective created by Scottish author and physician Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the enduring popularity of Sherlock Holmes will continue no doubt. Is it his savvy logical reasoning, his ability to take on almost any disguise, or his forensic science skills to solve a problematic case. Anyway for all of us Sherlockian enthusiast, it is not just another detective case to be solved, with Holmes it is an adventure.
