    Holmes and Watson are on the case in Hamsterley on the night of Halloween as they investigate the grim legend of the Baskerville family curse in this new adaptation by Northern Stage of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s famous crime story.  Charles Baskerville is dead, and a terrifying beast is rumoured to stalk the moors around the remote Baskerville mansion. When Sherlock Holmes sends Doctor Watson to investigate, Watson finds himself surrounded by dense fog and a community steeped in folklore, legend and rumour, where the line between reality and myth is no longer clear. How can a rational man trust his own eyes when confronted with the impossible?
