A terrified client claims his father was killed by a monstrous creature stalking the wilds of Dartmoor, so Holmes and Watson head to the countryside to investigate.

But what seemed like mere fantasy back in Baker Street proves a very different prospect when the duo look into an ultra-secret army base at the edge of the moor. Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman star in this adaptation of Conan Doyle’s most famous Sherlock Holmes story, The Hound of the Baskervilles, with Russell Tovey (Being Human), Amelia Bullmore (Twenty Twelve) and Clive Mantle (Casualty).
