First Aired: January 19, 2003
Richard Roxburgh trades Sherlock Holmes' traditional deerstalker for a top hat as he stalks a Devonshire moor in “The Hound of the Baskervilles,” Arthur Conan Doyle's 1901 who(or what)dunit. If it's a what, it's the deadly ghost of the hound that killed Sir Hugo Baskerville in the 17th century. And as this mystery opens, Sir Hugo's descendant, Charles, is literally scared to death by the sight of it. Charles' heir, Sir Henry (Matt Day), doesn't know what to think as he arrives at Baskerville Hall. But Holmes suspects that the spectral hound isn't all that's lurking on the moor. Watson: Ian Hart.
