Presented by Crime And Comedy Theatre Company as a radio-play-live-on-stage – our setting is a radio studio, our actors ready as if for a radio broadcast, and our sound effects created live on stage, all combining to transport the audience from Baker Street to Dartmoor, as we bring to life this tale of murder, mystery and horror that’s surely the greatest detective story ever told! A rare chance to see these wonderful actors live at your local theatre – this is a play not to be missed.

Live on stage and in person, renowned stars of stage & screen Colin Baker (Doctor Who, The Brothers) and Terry Molloy (Mike Tucker in The Archers for 40 years) are joining forces this spring to play the world’s most famous detectives, Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson. Colin’s daughter Rosie Baker (Bullet Proof, Breaking Point) will also be joining her father on stage. Alongside Dee Sadler (All Creatures Great & Small, No Place Like Home), they star in a brand new stage adaptation of The Hound of the Baskervilles – originally on tour to commemorate the 120th anniversary of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s most popular thriller and now extended by popular demand!

The legend of the ‘Hound of the Baskervilles’ has haunted the Baskerville family for generations – none more so than Sir Charles Baskerville, who died in mysterious circumstances worthy of the legend. This leads Doctor Mortimer to consult Sherlock Holmes & Doctor Watson, in the hope of preventing the heir to the Baskerville estate, Sir Henry, from suffering the same fate.

But the supernatural seems a very long way from 221B Baker Street… However, once Holmes & Watson journey to isolated Baskerville Hall, the line between reality and the legend becomes blurred. Death, doom and myth surround them – what is the secret of the butler in the night, whose is the mysterious lantern that shines in the darkness, and what hellish apparition stalks Dartmoor with murderous intent?
