The Hound of the Baskervilles is a 1983 British made-for-television mystery film directed by Douglas Hickox, starring Ian Richardson as Sherlock Holmes and Donald Churchill as Dr. John H. Watson. It is based on Arthur Conan Doyles The Hound of the Baskervilles.

                                     

1. Production

In 1982, American producer Sy Weintraub partnered with English producer Otto Plaschkes to make six television films of Sherlock Holmes stories. Charles Edward Pogue was enlisted to pen the screenplays but only The Sign of the Four and The Hound of the Baskervilles were ultimately filmed before Granada Televisions Sherlock Holmes series premiered in 1984. A proposed third film, Hands of a Murderer originally entitled The Prince of Crime was eventually made with Edward Woodward as Sherlock Holmes and John Hillerman as Dr. John H. Watson.

In an interview with Scarlet Street, Ian Richardson explained:

"That was the fly in our ointment. Initially, an unseen fly. You see, when Sy Weintraub was planning the films, he was unaware that the copyright on the Holmes stories was about to expire in England and he had to go through a great deal of legal negotiations with the Conan Doyle estate in order to gain permission to use them. However, he was totally ignorant of Granadas plans to film a series with Jeremy Brett.Weintraub was furious, because hed paid a lot of money to get permission from the estate and here was Granada saying, Thank you - but were going to do it. So Weintraub took them to court. He had a very good case, apparently; but eventually there was an out of court settlement for an extraordinary sum of money - something like two million pounds - which was enough for Weintraub to cover his costs on both The Sign of Four and The Hound of the Baskervilles, and make a profit, too. And so he wrapped the project up."

Denholm Elliot was cast as Dr. Mortimer having previously portrayed Stapleton in the comedy spoof version of the Hound starring Dudley Moore and Peter Cook. He also appeared with "Hound" co-star Connie Booth in the spoof The Strange Case of the End of Civilization as We Know It. Booth herself would later appear in 1987s The Return of Sherlock Holmes.

A large part of Martin Shaws American accent was dubbed by another actor in post-production.

3. Differences from novel

  • Laura Lyons dies in the film, strangled by the murderer to protect his identity. She does not die in the novel.
  • The films Geoffrey Lyons performs the feat of bending a fire iron as an intimidation tactic which was originally performed by Dr. Grimesby Roylott in "The Adventure of the Speckled Band".
  • Brian Blesseds character Geoffrey Lyons never appears in the novel. In the film version, Lyons is presented as an imposing suspect who is at one point falsely imprisoned for strangling his wife. Holmes solution to the case ultimately frees him.
  • Inspector Lestrade is assigned the task of arresting Seldon. Unlike previous versions of the story, he is revealed to be the policeman who arrested Seldon.
  • Stapletons demise in the bog is included as a part of the films climax. He ambushes Holmes, Watson and Beryl outside the Hounds lair, but is chased by Holmes into the moor; he stumbles into the mire and sinks to his doom, despite Holmes attempts to save him. The novel does not depict Stapletons demise; he simply disappears on the moor and is assumed to have drowned in the mire.
