Trivia

Dr. Watson's revolver is a Webley Mk I, a valiant attempt by the filmmakers to give Watson a period-correct revolver. However, though the Mk I was in production at the time the story is set, 1889, it could not have been Watson's service revolver, since Watson had invalided out by 1881 and the Webley didn't enter production till six years later.

A classic gone wrong
30 December 2002 | by Lee Bowen (K.I.T.H.)See all my reviews

I was really looking forward to this. Yes another remake but it's a fabulous story and possibly the greatest detective story ever. It started off mighty fine too, Nettles was superb throughout and although the Watson seemed a little young I grew to like him. I also liked seeing Holmes get the needles out as it's a part so little told on the screen. My first misgivings were at the archaeological dig. As far as I remember in the book Grant's character was a butterfly collector. Then things started going wrong big time when there was a party at Baskerville Hall, mmm this never happened. Oh well I am all for changing stories for the better for screen but this wasn't the case in my opinion. And without giving the end away, what the hell was going on - awful ! And no phosforous (spelling?) on the dog ! Anyway a big thumbs down from me. One to watch once and once only. A superb cast, good acting on the whole and excellently filmed but ruined by a rewrite of a perfect story. Oh and why the Ivor the engine train scene with St.Paul's in the background :)
