Sherlock Holmes is called in to investigate a suspicious death on Dartmoor
This crime mystery was the very first ‘talking picture’ version of the story, based on the 1902 novel of the same name by Arthur Conan Doyle. It features an arrival scene at Lustleigh station on the GWR’s Moretonhampstead branch from Newton Abbot. The station was renamed ‘Baskerville’ during filming and the GWR hotel at Moretonhampstead played the part of Baskerville Hall. There are also several shots filmed onboard a train.
