Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s most celebrated Sherlock Holmes story gets a gloriously funny makeover.
When Sir Charles Baskerville is found dead on his estate, with a look of terror still etched on his face, and the paw prints of a gigantic hound beside his body, the great detective Sherlock Holmes is summoned from Baker Street, with Dr Watson in tow, to unravel the mysteries surrounding his death, nd investigate the ancient curse of the Hound of the Baskervilles.
