Students examine the importance of setting in this excerpt about the moors, from MASTERPIECE’s 2002 version of The Hound of the Baskervilles. The legend of the hound that haunts the mysterious landscape of Dartmoor captured Arthur Conan Doyle’s imagination. As students study the setting, they are also introduced to the cunning villain of the story, Stapleton, and what happens when the civilized Sherlock Holmes must solve a mystery set against such a wild and turbulent backdrop. See Teaching Tips for how to use the video in the classroom. This resource is part of the MASTERPIECE Collection.
