This podcast interview with the always erudite Stephen Fry is marvelous. Fry has had a lifelong connection to Sherlock Holmes and played Mycroft Holmes in the Guy Ritchie film Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, as well as performing the entire Holmes canon for Audible.
Last year, Audible.com (an online audiobook service from Amazon) released an audiobook of English actor Stephen Fry reading the entire Sherlock Holmes canon. I'm listening to Fry's reading of A Study in Scarlet right now, and it's really quite marvelous. Fry has been a longtime Holmes aficionado, and he brings a great deal of style (as well as a great deal of humor) to his reading of the canon. For Audible subscribers it's a reasonable price of $14.95. If you're not willing to subscribe to Audible, it will cost you a significantly less reasonable $58.99! (Or is it $82.77? The prices listed on Amazon and Audible are different.) You can hear a sample of Fry's reading on Amazon.com or on Audible.com.
