To celebrate the release of THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES – on Blu-ray (for the first time!), DVD, EST and DVD/Book gift set 30th May – we are giving away a copy on Blu-ray.

The classic 1939 Sherlock Holmes mystery starring Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce is one of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s most famous and entertainingly macabre Sherlock Holmes stories.

Sherlock Holmes has proved an enduring favourite with audiences since Conan Doyle’s first story featuring the Baker Street detective was published in 1887.

More recently, interest has been revived with the hugely popular BBC series Sherlock, starring Benedict Cumberbatch, as well as the big screen hits starring Robert Downey Jr; but the series of films starring Basil Rathbone are regarded by many to be the most faithful, and entertaining, of all the Holmes adaptations, and THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES is considered one of the very best.

BatWhilst I love prosthetic effects, stop-motion animation and gore, nothing can beat a good story! I adore B-movies and exploitation films in many of their guises and also have a soft spot for creature features. I review a wide range of media including movies, TV series, books and videogames. I'm a massive fan of author Hunter S. Thompson and I enjoy various genre of videogames with Kingdom Hearts and Harvest Moon two of my all time favs. I don't do 3D movies so put the red and green spex away!

  1. Jeremy Brett and Edward Hardwicke

  2. Clive Merrison and Michael Williams

  3. Basil Rathbone was the pre-eminent Sherlock Holmes and his performances stand the test of time. And Nigel Bruce’s bumbling, sometimes incompetent Dr Watson is a testament to the actor’s talent and his Watson is a perfect foil for Rathbone’s Holmes.

  70. Its a hard one to answer, but would pick two teams, Tom Conway and Nigel Bruce for the radio version (I find Basil Rathbone’s radio portrail a bit harsh) and for TV it has to be Jeremy Brett and Edward Hardwicke by miles.
