TMBDOS! Episode 179: “The Hound of the Baskervilles” (1959); “The Final Problem” (1985) & “The Empty House” (1986).
Lee and Daniel are back once again with their friend Jack Graham to ponder more Sherlock Holmes adaptations on the big and small screen. First up it's the Hammer Horror adaptation of "The Hound of the Baskervilles" (1959), directed by Terence Fisher, and starring Peter Cushing, André Morell & Christopher Lee. Then it's two more episodes of the Jeremy Brett Holmes series, where we cover the apparent death and return of Holmes with "The Final Problem" (1985) & "The Empty House" (1986). Was Hammer suited to adapt Holmes? Why is Moriarty bullshit? Can Watson write a fight scene worth a shit? Dog's bollocks? All this and more is covered in the episode. The hosts also talk about what they've watched recently and listener comments are read.
Featured Music: "Main Titles" & "The Legend of the Hound" by James Bernard; and "The Death of Sherlock Holmes" by Patrick Gowers.
