SYNOPSIS:
Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson receive a visit from the physician Richard Mortimer. Mortimer tells them the story of the curse that haunts the Baskerville family. This apparently resulted after the ancestor Sir Hugo Baskerville pursued and murdered a servant girl with his dogs, only to then be killed himself by a supernatural hound. The same ghostly hound is believed to have killed all the heirs to the Baskerville title, including most recently Sir Charles Baskerville. Holmes and Watson meet the new heir Sir Henry and accompany him to the Baskerville estate in Devon. There they determine mysterious happenings and great evil are afoot. Holmes tries to get to the bottom of the mystery and find whether the hound heard baying on the moors is a supernatural agency or a more mundane plot to murder Sir Henry.
