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

Thank you Mr. Sherlock Holmes(Benedict)...you just made my year.....
9 January 2012 | by (Kolkata, India) – See all my reviews

The Hounds of Baskerville-the name itself is enough to percuss a cold flutter down the spine as Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss returns with frightening, impressive, imposing, stupefying, astonishing, breathtaking, confounding and all-heads-bowing chirography of feasibly and arguably the best detective sleuth of all time. Portrayed a high- tech gizmo whizz-bang adventure, Benedict Cumberbatch emancipated his best so far. The script, which according to me is better than the original novel, presents us with enough astoundments, astonishments, unpredictable, abhorrent, frightful, heart-racing moments and mind shattering sequences that has left me with a bad hangover. Cleverly maneuvered in an extraordinarily fanatical and fervent way as Sherlock Holmes dashes through the dark side of the Moore with fear thumping through his heart and nerves..hats off to the creators and a big THANK YOU to them to present us with such a script and such blazingly plotted sequences.....the ending had an intense anxiety, apprehension and titillation in itself making us only wonder that the season finale is going to be even more destructive and mortiferous than all the previous ones.........
