Good, but could have been better
I used to enjoy watching these adaptations of the Sherlock Holmes stories; in fact, these are what got me reading the original stories in the first place. The best thing about them were the portrayals of Holmes (Brett) and Watson (Burke/Hardwicke). The worst thing was usually the liberties taken with the stories by the writers.

Their "Hound" is a fairly faithful adaptation. Where liberties are taken, it's usually for the sake of compressing the story. I haven't seen this for a while, but two things stuck out to me as being particularly off with it: (1) The actress playing Beryl seemed really wrong for the part. (2) Charles Baskerville's terrifying death was described wonderfully in the book ("...He was running, Watson - running desperately, running for his life, running until he burst his heart..."). But in this adaptation Charles' fleeing is handled so casually as to almost give the impression nothing important is happening. It could have been done so much better!
