Trivia

Tom Baker said of the titular hound: "He didn't want to harm Nicholas Woodeson, who was playing Sir Henry Baskerville. In fact, the bloody dog had fallen in love with Nicholas. Someone had the notion of hiding sausages under the lapels of Nic's dinner jacket, but it was of no use: The dog actually appeared to be blowing kisses at Nic. And then, a member of the camera crew suggested that, 'why didn't we throw Nic at the dog, and then run the film backwards?' Nic Wilson was not amused, but I was. I laughed so much, I hoped that the joke was what I'd been waiting for all these years before I died". See more »

Even worked as a radio serial.

My family watched this when it was broadcast by the ABC in Australia and we were enjoying it very much. We were disappointed that we would miss the last instalment as we were going away to stay in a caravan without TV.

Fortunately I'd learnt that a mono FM radio could receive the sound of the ABC TV signal. We tuned in and sat in the caravan mesmerised, like a family in the 1940's listening to a radio drama.

Because we had seen the earlier episodes on TV we could easily imagine the characters and locations, thereby truly experiencing 'theatre of the mind'. It was very special.
