Trivia

Ian Hart reprised his role as Dr. John Watson in Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Silk Stocking (2004). He also played Sir Arthur Conan Doyle in Finding Neverland (2004). See more »

Goofs

Although Watson's revolver in the film is a Webley Mk I, which would have (just barely) been in use at the time the story is set (1888), during his own time of service in Afghanistan (pinned down as encompassing 1880 when he was wounded at the Battle of Maiwand, invalided out in 1881), the service revolver would have been an Adams type revolver, a very different-looking piece. Though officers could buy their own sidearms as long as they chambered service ammunition, it would have been impossible to Watson to have obtained a Webley as the Mark I, the first of the type, was not introduced until 1887.

This was a well done version of an old favorite.
20 January 2003 | by jackandskyesmomSee all my reviews

This was a well done version of one of the most favorite of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's tales. This version showcases an excellent cast, terrific costumes, and one of the best Edwardian locations yet. Other than Jeremy Brett's portrayal of Sherlock Holmes, which is the best ever, Mr. Roxburgh was a very believable detective. While Richard Roxburgh is a really good Holmes, Ian Hart is outstanding as Dr. Watson. He plays Watson as an intelligent, loyal, and very human but capable doctor. Ian Hart brought a fuller dimension to the Dr. Watson character to this Hound of the Baskervilles that many other version have not. I also liked Matt Day as Sir. Henry Baskerville. His youth helped make his character more believable than others who have played this roll. Richard E. Grant was a diabolical Stapleton and feelings I had toward him as the "bad guy" attest to his great acting ability, as I loved him as the Scarlet Pimpernel! The only disappointment was the very few moments when the computer animated 'hound' was on screen. When the hound was chasing Baskerville, it was terrifying but as the animal got close up and I could see it was turned into a computer animated composite of several animals, terror turned to unbelief! All in all it was one of the best versions so far and I enjoyed it very much. I would highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys not only a good detective story but somewhat of a horror story too.
