Trivia

Holmes' use of cocaine while on a case is non-canonical - in Doyle's stories, Holmes used cocaine only he was bored due to inactivity. See more »

Goofs

A long-shot of the train supposedly traveling westwards from Paddington Station (West Central London) to Dartmoor (Devon) affords a clear view of St Paul's in the background. St Paul's is in the City of London, and is several miles eastwards of Paddington. See more »

Sir Henry Baskerville: What do you call that thing where the landowner has the right to bed the local women?
Dr. John Watson: Droit de signeur. Sadly for you, the feudal system was abolished in Devonshire some time ago.

So So
7 January 2003 | by JB-9See all my reviews

I saw this over Christmas and though I did enjoy it, I feel there were some things wrong with it. I really didn't like Watson. I felt he was a horrible cold character. It's good that they didn't make him out to be a clown but they didn't show him as the caring person he was. Holmes had no personalty in this production. The settings and locations were brillant and full of atmosphere. The hound looked like a dinosaur from Jurassic Park. I couldn't make up my mind about Miss Stapleton and Sir Henry Baskerville.Sometimes I thought Miss Stapleton was a bit modern looking for the part. I didn't like the changes in the story. Holmes taking drugs was over done. I think the Hound of the Baskervilles will need to be made again.
