Trivia

In the Railway scene the "GWR" No.5 is actually former Lambton Collieries No.5, an 0-6-2 Tank Loco Built by Robert Stephenson & Co. Ltd at Darlington (Works No.3377 of 1909). The Lambton Hetton & Joicey Colliery system was part of the large colliery systems in the North East of England, a system so large it even ran its own passenger service. See more »

Goofs

When the hound attacks Selden, during the struggle there are scenes in which the victim changes from Selden to Sir Henry Baskerville. Seldon's head is shaved, while in parts of this scene, the victim obviously has a full head of hair. See more »

Very good !!
23 December 2003 | by (Toronto, CANADA) – See all my reviews

"The Hound of the Baskervilles' has always been my favourite Sherlock Holmes adventures. I have seen at least three movies (this one, one with Basil Rathbone as Holmes and one with Peter Cushing as the great detective) I must admit that this is the best. None of them were based exactly on the book. The only thing I can suggest is that since this is a TV series, it could be made a bit longer with more than one episode.
