New stage adaption for Sherlock Holmes’ 120th anniversary

Commemorating 120 years of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s tale, Crime And Comedy Theatre Company present a new stage adaptation of Sherlock Holmes’ The Hound of the Baskervilles, touring the UK this autumn. Doctor Who stars Colin Baker (Doctor Who, BBC; The Brothers, BBC) and Terry Molloy (The Archers, BBC Radio 4; Doctor Who, BBC) will take to the stage in this detective tale.

The setting is a radio studio, the actors ready as if for a radio broadcast, and the sound effects created live on stage, all combining to transport the audience from Baker Street to Dartmoor, as this
tale of murder, mystery and horror is brought to life.

Once facing each other as mortal enemies as the Doctor and Davros in Doctor Who, Baker, returning to the stage after five years, and Molloy, best known for playing Mike Tucker in The Archers for over forty years, now team up as Holmes and Watson.

The cast will also be joined by Dee Sadler (No Place Like Home, BBC; All Creatures Great and Small, BBC) as Doctor Mortimer in this radio-play-on-stage of Sherlock Holmes’ The Hound of the Baskervilles.

“A brand-new adaptation of the world’s most famous detective story”

Adaptor and director Martin Parsons said: “With 2022 being the 120th anniversary of the publication of The Hound of The Baskervilles, it’s an ideal time for a brand-new adaptation of the world’s most famous detective story.

“And having seen Colin Baker and Terry Molloy’s pitch perfect performances, I know audiences will delight at their portrayals of Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson. We’re in for a treat and I’m thrilled to be able to bring two such fine actors together on stage in these iconic roles.

“The cast is completed by Nigel Fairs (Translations, National Theatre; The Mousetrap, West End) as Sir Henry Baskerville, Kate Ashmead (The Importance of Being Earnest, Palchetto Stage; Educating Rita, Regent Theatre) as Mrs Barrymore and Martin Parsons (The Railway Children, UK Tour; Billy Liar, UK Tour) as Jack Stapleton.”
