sherlockpackshots-2The Hound of the Baskervilles 

Ian Richardson is wittily sardonic here as Sherlock Holmes, in Douglas Hickox’ 1983 vibrant screen adaptation of the fateful folkloric story which tells of a demonic dog threatening the life of the latest heir Sir Henry Baskerville. He joins Donald Churchill’s Dr Watson to investigate the infamous curse on the Baskerville Family, filmed here by Oscar winning DoP Ronnie Taylor from a screenplay by Charles Pogue (who also scripted Dragonheart and The Fly). There are standouts from Denholm Elliott as Dr Mortimer and Eleanor Bron as Mrs Barrymore. MT

Special Features:
Audio Commentary by Sherlock Holmes expert David Stuart Davies
Newly-commissioned sleeve art from legendary Graham Humphreys
