"The Hound of the Baskervilles" doesn't easily lend itself to the theatre, but dramatists seem unable to resist the challenge. To my regret I've not had the chance to see it performed, but the script by Simon Corble is pretty close to the top of my list of favourites. It was written to be performed out of doors, with the audience following the actors from place to place. Mr Corble boldly adapts the story rather than simply dramatising, and the result is clever, witty, exciting - and refreshingly intelligent. David Stuart Davies contributes an appreciative foreword, and the text is enhanced by a dozen photographs and a superb atmospheric cover, using photos taken during a production at Brimham Rocks in North Yorkshire.

All the elements of the story we know so well are here, but with a twist, ok then, several twists! The traditional Holmes fan will lap it up, but so too will those new to the story (there must be some surely!). Holmes is Holmes and Watson is Watson, but withing those confines Simon Corble still finds something extra in the characters and the situations they face. Just when you thought there could never be anything new to add to the 'Hound legend' along comes Simon Corble to prove otherwise.
