The Hound of the Baskervilles: A radio play on stage!

Doctor Who’s Colin Baker and The Archers’ Terry Molloy bring Sherlock Holmes’ The Hound of the Baskervilles to The Atkinson Wednesday 9 November 2022, 7:30pm.


Commemorating 120 years of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s world-famous tale, Crime And Comedy Theatre Company present a brand-new stage adaptation of The Hound of the Baskervilles, touring the UK this autumn. Doctor Who star 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 classic detective tale.

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 the infamous Mike Tucker in The Archers for over forty years, now team up as the iconic Holmes and Watson. Joined by Dee Sadler (No Place Like Home, BBC; All Creatures Great and Small, BBC) as Doctor Mortimer, this radio-play-on-stage brings to life one of the greatest detective mysteries ever told.

Adaptor and director Martin Parsons comments:

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.
