First broadcast:

When Sherlock Holmes hears the strange tale of the Hound of the Baskervilles, he despatches Watson to Dartmoor to begin solving the mystery. Hostile yokels, alarming acquaintances, an escaped murderer and the deadly Grimpen Mire conspire to make Watson more baffled than ever, until Holmes turns up in disguise to take over the investigation.

Peepolykus Theatre Company play fast and loose with Conan Doyle, including a Spanish Holmes, in a comic take on this classic yarn, recorded in front of a live audience in Bristol earlier this year.

Adapted from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's original story by Steven Canny & John Nicholson
Directed by Alison Hindell

Recorded at Queen Elizabeth's Hospital School Theatre, Bristol, for Radio 4's More Than Words Festival.
