Beware! There’s a brand new “Hound” on Masterpiece Theatre Online
http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/masterpiece/hound/

An all-new retelling of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic “The Hound of the Baskervilles” premieres on ExxonMobil Masterpiece Theatre on Sunday, January 19 on PBS. This “Hound” has all the complexity, intrigue, and terror of the original, and features Holmes and Watson as Conan Doyle conceived them: vigorous men in their mid-thirties. Richard Roxburgh (“Moulin Rouge”) is riveting as Sherlock Holmes. 

Special features on “The Hound of the Baskervilles” companion Web site include: 

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle:  Child prodigy, tuba player, surgeon, sleuth, spiritualist…learn all about the man and see his full bibliography at www.pbs.org/wgbh/masterpiece/hound/ei_doyle.html

The Lure of the Moor: Its harsh, chaotic weather, inhospitable to human life, has nonetheless proved fertile ground for the many writers who've set their stories on its gloomy plain.
