The hit BBC series Sherlock offers a fresh, contemporary take on the original Sir Arthur Conan Doyle stories, and has helped introduce a whole new generation of fans to the legendary detective. In this TV tie-in edition of the classic novel, first published in The Strand in 1901, Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson are called to the haunting and beautiful moors of Dartmoor and the home of the Baskerville family, who seem to have fallen victim to a family curse. A terrifying spectre in the shape of a great hound was once said to have hunted an ancestor across the moors and the recent, mysterious death of Sir Charles Baskerville suggests that the hound has returned. But is this really a supernatural curse or is a much more dastardly and earthly plot a foot? Sherlock and Dr Watson must solve the riddle of the hound before another murder is committed.

The rich landowner Sir Charles Baskerville is found dead in the park of his manor surrounded by the grim moor of Dartmoor, in the county of Devon. His death seems to have been caused by a heart attack, but the victim's best friend, Dr. Mortimer, is convinced that the strike was due to a supernatural creature, which haunts the moor in the shape of an enormous hound, with blazing eyes and jaws. In order to protect Baskerville's heir, Sir Henry, who's arriving to London from Canada, Dr. Mortimer asks for Sherlock Holmes' help, telling him also of the so-called Baskervilles' curse, according to which a monstrous hound has been haunting and killing the family males for centuries, in revenge for the misdeeds of one Sir Hugo Baskerville, who lived at the time of Oliver Cromwell.

The Hound of the Baskervilles is the third of the crime novels written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle featuring the detective Sherlock Holmes. Dr. James Mortimer asks Sherlock Holmes for advice following the death of his friend, Sir Charles Baskerville. Sir Charles was found dead on the grounds of his Devonshire estate, Baskerville Hall. Mortimer now fears for Sir Charles's nephew and sole heir, Sir Henry Baskerville, who is the new master of Baskerville Hall. The death was attributed to a heart attack, but Mortimer is suspicious, because Sir Charles died with an expression of horror on his face, and Mortimer noticed "the footprints of a gigantic hound" about 50 yards from where Sir Charles lay dead. The Baskerville family has supposedly been under a curse since the era of the English Civil War when ancestor Hugo Baskerville allegedly offered his soul to the devil for help in abducting a woman and was reportedly killed by a giant spectral hound. Sir Charles believed in the curse and was apparently fleeing from something in fright when he died.The primary mystery involves the death of Sir Charles Baskerville at his estate in the beautiful countryside of Devon, but interestingly, the author also includes a number of mini-mysteries which I found engaging and helped keep my interest throughout. In fact, the story commenced with a mini-mystery involving the identity of the owner of a walking cane left in Holmes' office. Dr Watson produced a very sound analysis of what type of person the owner might be by observing such things as wear and tear and bite marks on the cane itself. However, after Watson's seemingly brilliant observations - Holmes then proceeded to critically tear apart Watson's assumptions and arguments, piece by piece, until the poor man's position was totally and irrevocably obliterated. This seems to be a bit of a theme - if I was Dr Watson, not sure I'd hang around with a bloke like Sherlock. Yet, despite this condescending treatment, Dr Watson seems to have almost a sycophantic relationship with Sherlock. It must be said though, Sherlock Holmes is a very impressive character. His lines of reasoning and modus operandi are always logical and altogether brilliant. To me, his powers of deduction always seemed to be sensible, he used very linear arguments and despite the red herrings lying about the place - he made complete sense. The narration by Dr Watson is a great tool used by the author to not only explain what was going on but to re-empathise parts of the narrative that may be a bit too complex (for my addled brain anyway), but he also used instruments such as Dr Watson's written reports to Holmes, to further cement the plot into the readers mind.

The Hound of the BaskervillesSherlock HolmesThe Hound of the Baskervilles by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was originally serialized in The Strand Magazine from August 1901 to April 1902.In 1893 Sherlock Holmes met his death at Reichenbach Falls in The Adventure of the Final Problem. His fans had to wait until 1901 to once again enjoy a novel featuring the great detective.In March of 1901 Conan Doyle vacationed in Norfolk with his friend Bertram Fletcher Robinson. While the men played golf and relaxed they spoke of many things. Robinson told Conan Doyle about growing up in Devon and the local legends. Conan Doyle was especially interested in the tales of ghostly hounds that roamed Dartmoor.Conan Doyle knew that the ghostly hound would make a good starting point for a novel. However he needed a strong central character. He decided that it made no sense to create a new character when he already had one in Sherlock Holmes. While he wasn't ready to bring Holmes back to life, Conan Doyle decided that he would write a novel that happened in an earlier time period. A time period before the incident at Reichenbach Falls. The knowledge that the public would go wild over another Sherlock Holmes novel must have also helped Conan Doyle in his decision.Later that month Robinson took Conan Doyle on a tour of Dartmoor. They visited Brook Manor, Grimspound, Child's Tomb and Fox Tor Mires.
