Gโ€™day you lovely listeners. Iโ€™ve been getting some requests from listeners for Sherlock Holmes OTRโ€™s recently. And this particular OTR, launched in 1939 to 1940 starred Basil Rathbone as Sherlock Holmes and Nigel Bruce as Dr Watson.
Basil Rathbone, besides having a delicious first name and an ass kicking last name, was made most famous by his role as Sherlock Holmes โ€“ he was iconic as this character, bringing to life what every reader had in mind when they thought of Sherlock โ€“ regal, perhaps a little arrogant, and all around intellectual laser pointer for solving mysteryโ€™s.
And his partner in crime โ€“ solving, Nigel Bruce as Dr Watson, brought in a swagger, a coolness, mixed with a pinch of silliness, buffoonery, and rather charming attitude towards Sherlocks endeavours. Rathbone spoke fondly of Bruce, saying,โ€ [Bruce had an] avuncular presence, providing the perfect counterbalance to Rathbone’s briskly omniscient sleuthโ€, and as the show ended would go on to say โ€œ “after Bruce, it would be a near-unthinkable heresy to show Holmes without him”.
Folks I hope you enjoy todayโ€™s episode, there are a couple of blips, but Iโ€™ve hand-crafted this particular episode to launch the Sherlock Holmes OTR Remastered series on itโ€™s best foot, and I hope you love it. Enjoy.
