Thanks, eleoraf; at the moment, all of Watson's parts are taken, assigned to wiltedscribe.

I'm sure that there'll be another Sherlock collection, as he's so popular.

I'll bear you in mind in case Watson is released.

Hello Folks,

Just wanted to give you a little background - as I have decided to entirely give up on Librivox.

When I launched this project in September 2019, I honestly didn't realise that it would be so difficult.

It all started with 'The Dying Detective' in Todd's Dramatic read post. (Remember that Peter?)

Anyways - I got in touch with Beth after that, to enquire if she planned to do any more Holmes stories.
(I had no idea at that time just how unwell she was... :| )

Anyways, she told me that she and a lady friend had already read most of the Sherlock Holmes catalogue.
(I think that Beth read Watson.)

However, she did mention 2 stories that were yet to be recorded, so I enthusiastically volunteered to participate, should she ever decide to go forward with them...

Imagine my surprise when I recieved the first seven scripts the next day, closely followed by the remaining five...

So - I did my best. I honestly didn't have the faintest idea what I was doing! I just couldn't wrap my head
round the Magic Window - and I was pretty nervous about my recordings anyway.

However, Beth had a whole bunch of projects underway already, so she didn't want this one in her name,
so I did as she requested. However, I would like to state for the record that this was - and always will be - Beth's

I sincerely hope that it may be finished some day.
I have absolutely nothing in this world but time - so I believe I should invest it wisely...

Have no fear, everyone: I'll begin sending Watson files by the weekend. We're almost there. :thumbs:

I, for one, am not worried, Tomas. I have worked on projects (and am working on projects) which have taken much longer. :D
