Sherlock Audiobooks Read By Benedict Cumberbatch
Sherlock BBC took the UK - and parts of the rest of the world - by storm on on the 25th of July, 2010 with its contemporary take on the iconic detective and his brilliant mind. Imaginations have been seized and lit afire, and it's going to be a long, difficult wait till the next series is released.
Therefore, in the interim, we appeal to the BBC to release an audiobook reading (or two) of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's stories. But narrated by not just anyone - by the actor behind Sherlock himself, Benedict Cumberbatch. Described by Caitlin Moran as possessing a voice "like a jaguar hiding in a cello", there is little doubt that he would do great justice to the original stories, and that such a release would be enthusiastically welcomed by Sherlock fans.
While we understand that Benedict Cumberbatch is a terribly busy actor (thank goodness!), we feel that it would be timely for the Sherlock Holmes and the BBC to make this happen.
In short: Dear BBC Audiobooks, there are many, many fans who would love an audiobook recording of the original stories read by Sherlock himself. We really would.
