On now: The Hound of the Baskervilles

When Sir Charles Baskerville is found dead on his remote estate, in eerie, seemingly supernatural circumstances, and surrounded by giant paw prints, the legendary detective Sherlock Holmes is called in to investigate. 

The most popular of all of the Sherlock Holmes adventures is brought to life in this slapstick comedy spoof packed full of laughter, suspense and lightning-fast costume changes. You can be sure that this will be Arthur Conan Doyle’s most popular story as you’ve never seen it before.
