I did not like the Holmes episodes of CBSRMT. I've never been a Sherlock Holmes fan. I didn't care for Kevin McCarthey's work either. I was disappointed in this episode when I listened to it. I love haunted house stories and especially enjoy haunted castle stories. When I found out that this was a pseudo-Holmes story, it left me flat. Oddly enough, I enjoyed Doyle's non-Holmes story.

This would not be a favorite episode for me either. I was never a Holmes fan in anyway.. however I like the other poster I had to listen a couple times to try and gather the twists and turns or maybe I am just not getting it all ?  I get that the Gillette guy died years before and all that but still did not get the point at the end of going the other way out? Anyways Thanks for the download and the comments...

Bah, it ain't that bad. I haven't heard it in a while. Another one I need to listen too.

I can take or leave this one. Not a big on the Holmes genre on CBSRMT. I would, however like to go tour that castle, as EG Marshall suggests. It sounds really interesting.


Nightmare at Gillette Castle isn't scary but I always enjoy listening to it!


All this story is missing is the T.A.R.D.I.S. ...

"Nightmare In Gillette Castle" had intrigue, suspense, unpredictability, and mystery to the tale from July 14, 1980. Identifying illusion from reality would not be forthright under some situations. A couple that had spent the night at a castle was in for some surprises in the story. Adventurous And Bold!! The Late Kevin McCarthy did a sensible job in playing his role.

The plot jumped around, but never gets resolved. Were they ghosts? Was it staged? Was it worth the 48 minutes of my life listening to it? The world may never know the answer to any of these questions. lol
