Twenty years earlier, aged seven, young Henry Knight saw his father torn to pieces by a monstrous creature at Dewer's Hollow near their Dartmoor home. Now Henry has seen the footprints of a huge beast and suspects that the nearby Baskerville government research station is breeding mutant animals. Sherlock and John travel to the moor where local lad Fletcher organizes tourist walks cashing in on the legend of Dartmoor's spectral hound. Using false I.D. the pair infiltrate Baskerville and are challenged by secretive Major Barrymore but rescued by sympathetic Dr. Frankland, a friend to Henry. After Sherlock himself sees the monstrous creature he enlists the help of geneticist Dr. Stapleton to help him solve the mystery.

Did You Know?
The commanding officer at the top secret facility taunts Holmes, stating that they have a pair of aliens there who crash landed in the sixties, to whom they gave the names Abbot and Costello. In what appears to be a direct nod to Sherlock, in the first-contact sci-fi film, Arrival
(2016), the names that are given to the two aliens are Abbot and Costello. See more
When Sherlock refers to Kirsty Stapleton's luminescent rabbit he says her mother, the doctor, must have spliced its DNA with a fluorescent gene. The proper term for organisms which have a gene which make them glow is bioluminescent. See more
This is about Henry Knight, isn't it?
I thought so. Oh, I knew he wanted help, but... I didn't realize he was going to contact Sherlock Holmes. Oh, don't worry, I know who you really are. I'm never off your website. Thought you'd be wearing the hat, though.
That wasn't my hat.
I hardly recognized him without the hat.
It wasn't my hat.
I love the blog, too, Dr. Watson.
