Watson is especially important in the Big Finish productions, as his narration underpins the story to a greater extent than I can recall in any other such audio drama, and Richard Earl is fully equal to the task. This production of The Hound is nail-bitingly exciting, as it should be..." - The Sherlock Holmes Journal

"If you are looking for an adaptation to enhance your enjoyment of the original Sherlock Holmes story, or perhaps just a well-made, mystery audio drama, you will certainly want to pick up a copy of The Hound of the Baskervilles!" - Audio Theatre Central
