Storyline

Twenty years earlier, aged seven, young Henry Knight saw his father torn to pieces by a monstrous creature at Dewer's Hollow near their Dartmoor home. Now Henry has seen the footprints of a huge beast and suspects that the nearby Baskerville government research station is breeding mutant animals. Sherlock and John travel to the moor where local lad Fletcher organizes tourist walks cashing in on the legend of Dartmoor's spectral hound. Using false I.D. the pair infiltrate Baskerville and are challenged by secretive Major Barrymore but rescued by sympathetic Dr. Frankland, a friend to Henry. After Sherlock himself sees the monstrous creature he enlists the help of geneticist Dr. Stapleton to help him solve the mystery. Written by don @ minifie-1

Better to say the least !
9 January 2012 | by (Bangladesh) – See all my reviews

I was thoroughly disappointed to see " A Scandal in Belgravia". I did't get the intent of the story, what was the writer/director really planned to do by a disjoint and see-saw storyline and putting up some unnecessary humors/love elements. In that sense The Hounds of Baskerville is better to say the least. Though the ending seemed to be a bit poor. Nevertheless, I really enjoyed it; though the timing might have played a part; you know you are not supposed to see mysterious or horror shows in day time. I appreciate the picking up of a atypical story in compare to the previous ones. Both Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman are getting better as the episodes are progressing. Good job folks. You two get along great !
