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

Disappointing!
11 January 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Let me begin by stating that I am a huge fan of both the Sherlock TV series as well as the Robert Downey movies. The first episode of the series was action packed, great suspense and AMAZING music effects, particularly in the cellphone unlocking scene, but "The Hounds of Baskerville" was a big let down, to say the least.

Without going into spoilers, let me inform you beforehand that this episode is completely different from Doyle's masterpiece. Different motives, different settings, even the protagonist's name has been changed. Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss did a good job with the modern day version, but made it over the top. Also, Cumberbatch's great punchlines didn't pack quite a punch, and some of the scenes were outright unrealistic. The story was pretty bland as well, and coincidences were more. Plus, the recurring gay references have started to get on my nerves by now.

Just hope that the duo comes back with all guns blazing in the final episode of the second season, because I, for one, am greatly looking forward to it
