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

Did You Know?
Sherlock's tobacco craze and impulsive announcement that he is "going to Dartmoor" is straight from the opening of the Holmes short story, "Silver Blaze" See more
Right after Watson says "Did you see it? You must have," at the lab, the camera tilts up and the studio where the lab was built becomes visible above the lab's "ceiling." See more
So we know that Dr. Stapleton performs secret genetic experiments on animals. The question is, has she been working on something deadlier than a rabbit?
Dr. John Watson
To be fair, that is quite a wide field.
