Goofs

When Sir Henry reads the anonymous letter in the hotel, we can see faintly through it from behind, and the type appears to be bold, approximately 18-point, and probably capital letters. However, when Holmes reads the article in The Times from which it is taken, he refers to it as "10-point". See more »

Standard TV fare, but not by the usual standards
6 November 2000 | by (In shame (2005 update)) – See all my reviews

The Canadian TV film 'Hound of the Baskervilles' is by no means all that great of a movie. It is pretty much on par with most other TV movies, but for different reasons. Usually the way to tell a movie made for television apart from those that received theatrical releases lies with the production values. Not so in this case. The production values, especially the atmospheric direction and good performances by Jason London, Matt Frewer and Kenneth Welsh warrant a viewing all on their own, the problems here are with the weak script. It allows little character development and the pacing is all wrong. It doesn't get around to the action until the end, and by then a good portion of the audience would have lost interest in the movie.

Good photography, good music, good acting, bad script. Not a great film, but it's worth watching once, especially if you're a fan of the character of Sherlock Holmes, or any of the actors
