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

Goofs

When Sherlock is looking for his secret supply of cigarettes, he points his harpoon at Mrs Hudson and does his 'detective analysis' on her. After he identifies the perfume she is wearing, he stops pointing his harpoon at her, however when the camera is facing back at her, the tip of the harpoon is seen pointed at her again even though Sherlock is holding it upright.

Quotes

Dr. John Watson: Okay, what about his father? He wasn't one of your patients. Wasn't he some sort of conspiracy nutter - theorist?
Dr. Mortimer: You're only a nutter if you're wrong.
Dr. John Watson: Mm. And was he wrong?
Dr. Mortimer: I should think so.

Wonderful
9 January 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

The first season tapered off after a great beginning. Any doubts about this season disappointing after the superb Scandal in Belgravia is dispelled with an even better Hound of Baskerville. Holmes and Watson go out in search of a mysterious animal which has tormented a man since his childhood. Like all episodes in this franchise, there is plenty of humour, suspense and intelligence, but this one also manages to be a little scary. It is indeed great to see two wonderful stories this season, which leads us to the final one, where Holmes battles the original you-know-who. How exciting is it for Sherlock Holmes fans to get a fun movie and this series almost back-to-back. Great stuff.
