The Holmes character was not only a favorite in the United States. It was done, and still is done, in England, by the British Broadcasting Corporation. In fact, the BBC produced a number of Holmes series.
In 1955, Holmes came to life with Sir John Gielgud as the great detective accompanied by Sir Ralph Richardson As Watson. This was followed by the Carleton Hobbs (Holmes) / Norman Shelly (Watson)version (the topic of this log). In recent years, the BBC again brought Holmes to radio with Clive Merrison as Holmes and Michael Williams as Watson.
