Trivia

Out for a walk, characters hear, then see, a dark-coated canine atop the ridge of a hill and someone comments that it looks like a wolf. That's problematic because by the turn of the 16th century, wolves were extinct in England and Wales. However, they held for longer in other parts of the British realm. In Scotland, wolves survived almost 200 years more, despite regular wolf hunts organized by nobility and decrees by Scottish kings for their destruction. Wolves held on in Ireland until the middle of the 18th century. By 1760, the English wolf in the British Isles was completely extirpated. See more »

Goofs

When Sir Henry reads the anonymous letter in the hotel, we can see faintly through it from behind, and the type appears to be bold, approximately 18-point, and probably capital letters. However, when Holmes reads the article in The Times from which it is taken, he refers to it as "10-point". See more »

Standard TV fare, but not by the usual standards
6 November 2000 | by millennia-2See all my reviews

The Canadian TV film 'Hound of the Baskervilles' is by no means all that great of a movie. It is pretty much on par with most other TV movies, but for different reasons. Usually the way to tell a movie made for television apart from those that received theatrical releases lies with the production values. Not so in this case. The production values, especially the atmospheric direction and good performances by Jason London, Matt Frewer and Kenneth Welsh warrant a viewing all on their own, the problems here are with the weak script. It allows little character development and the pacing is all wrong. It doesn't get around to the action until the end, and by then a good portion of the audience would have lost interest in the movie.

Good photography, good music, good acting, bad script. Not a great film, but it's worth watching once, especially if you're a fan of the character of Sherlock Holmes, or any of the actors
