Summary

The legend of the hound, which has brought terror to the Baskerville family for generations, brings Sherlock Holmes up against a formidable adversary and sends Dr Watson to a bleak and lonely moor where it is all too easy to believe that something not of this world is intent on driving his friend to a foul and hideous death.

"As you value your life or your reason keep away from the moor" read the note Sir Henry Baskerville had received. But the baronet, disbelieving legendary tales of a hound from hell which had torn out the throat of his evil ancestor, was intent on taking up his inheritance. Sherlock Holmes, brought into the case because the death of Sir Henry's uncle, insists that the trusty, level-headed Dr Watson go as guard to Baskerville Hall.

"I tell you, Watson, this time we have a foeman who is worthy of our steel! It's an ugly business, Watson, an ugly, dangerous business, and the more I see it, the less I like it." When even the great Sherlock Holmes finds himself dismayed by the ghastly occurrences at Baskerville Hall, the listener is assured of a gripping tale in this, probably his most famous case.
