Anachronisms 

This adaptation makes the usual error of giving Watson a Webley Mk VI .455 service revolver. Though it has the "look" of a 19th century revolver, it was not fielded by the British Army until 1915, almost thirty years after the story is set.

Continuity 

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.

Anachronisms 

In this version of THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES, Selden's braincase is held together with stitches because he has undergone a lobotomy. But that operation was not invented until the 1950s.
