Audience Reviews for Sherlock Holmes: The Hound of the Baskervilles

½

What I like most about this version of The Hound of the Baskervilles is that it is very much a British 'made for TV' version of the time. It's the sort of thing I grew up on. It's not got a huge budget (although it probably wasn't bad) so the performance is everything. With a fantastic cast such as Denholm Elliott, Ian Richardson, Brian Blessed and Ronald Lacey though you can't go wrong.

An honest retelling of this story which has been filmed many times and certainly one that Arthur Conan Doyle may have approved of. Unfortunately Ian Richardson, for all his acting talents, is woefully miscast as the great detective.
