Trivia

When Douglas Wilmer declined to star in the second series, the BBC asked John Neville to reprise his leading rôle from A Study in Terror (1965), with the same result. Next (and final) choice Peter Cushing had played the part in The Hound of the Baskervilles (1959) for Hammer, and would later reprise it in Sherlock Holmes and the Masks of Death (1984). See more »

Well made and well worth watching
28 March 2004 | by (Derby, UK) – See all my reviews

The 2 part episode Hound of the Baskervilles from the BBC TV series originally shown on 07/14.07.68 is out on DVD and video, and upon watching proves to me my memory isn't failing ... yet. Although, I wouldn't have guessed it was in colour and is still as bright as a new penny, both in texture and production values (bearing in mind the financial pressures always on the BBC). Peter Cushing and Nigel Stock play their parts of Holmes and Watson in a convincing way, although Cushing reportedly didn't enjoy the experience of little rehearsal time available.

The story should be familiar to most but this time it's closer to the book than the other film versions I've seen. Some 1960's stagey BBC acting from time to time and no money available for certain shots so a few ho hum short cuts to be sure, but still resulting a fine and satisfying TV programme. My daughter wasn't keen on the sudden ending but - they were Arty back then!

Thank the Heavens they didn't wipe it!
