Movie Info

Former Max Headroom star Matt Frewer made his first appearance as master detective Sherlock Holmes in this well-appointed adaptation of Arthur Conan Doyle's The Hound of the Baskervilles. On this occasion, Holmes and his chronicler Dr. John Watson (Kenneth Walsh) set about to protect young Sir Henry Baskerville (Jason London) from falling victim to what seems to be an old and inexorable family curse. Eventually the two sleuths converge upon Baskerville Hall, near the dreaded Grimpen Mire, where a huge and voracious hound threatens the wellbeing of all concerned. But who is really behind the sinister plot against Sir Henry -- and is anyone involved in the case truly whom he or she claims to be? Largely filmed on-location at Montacute House in Somerset, England, The Hound of the Baskervilles made its American TV bow over the Odyssey cable network on October 21, 2000, and seven days later debuted in Canada courtesy of CTV.

    A good television movie adaptation on a classic Sherlock Holmes story. Matt Frewer does a good job as Sherlock Holmes and Kenneth Welsh as well in his role as Watson. I still think Jeremy Brett gives the best performance as Holmes but Matt Frewer is a skilled actor and still pulls it off. I enjoyed this film. But the original book is much better. But worth a watch for Sherlock Holmes fans.

    A pretty neat telling of the story, good acting, but I felt the way it was paced left much to be desired.
