  • Overview

    Based on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s The Hound of Baskervilles, Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson must confront the moors of Devonshire to solve the mysterious death of Sir Charles Baskerville and protect the next heir to the fortune, Sir Henry.

    The Devonshire legend preaches that the Baskerville family is cursed by a supernatural hound but Holmes and Watson meet suspicious locals in the case ranging from an escaped convict to friendly neighbors, leaving them to deduce if such a beast as the hound is culpable for this murder.
