In the great tradition of Sherlock Holmes, there’s a mystery that needs solving and Holmes is the only man up to the challenge. In The Hound of the Baskervilles, that mystery centers on a devilish ghost-hound that seems intent on picking off the Baskerville family—heir by unlucky heir. But ghosts aren’t real … are they? And there must be some logical explanation for what’s going on… shouldn’t there be? You’ll be sleeping with the lights on until Holmes figures this one out. Unless, of course, the hound gets him first…
… Some of the bogs on Dartmoor have achieved notoriety. Fox Tor Mire was supposedly the inspiration for Great Grimpen Mire in Conan Doyle’s novel The Hound of the Baskervilles, although there is a waymarked footpath across it.
Stephan Bessant, whose credits include The Hound of the Baskervilles, said: “It’s so exciting. When I first heard about it I really, really wanted to audition for it, to be seen for it. I contacted James, I knew James from another shoot I had done earlier in the year and I said please, please see me for this.”
