Richard IV

Richard IV is an actor, swordsman and an expert on early detective fiction. His velvety voice and perfect timing make for some awfully handsome listening on his Sherlock Holmes walk! Let alone the rest of his repertory. No surprise to learn that he’s narrated numerous documentaries and audiobooks.
