Doctor Who Stars Hunt the Hound of the Baskervilles

Colin Baker, Nicola Bryant, Katy Manning, Terry Molloy, and Dee Sadler star in a new stage production of The Hound of the Baskervilles

Nicola Bryant has already guest starred in the classic Holmes tale starring Colin Baker with Katy Manning guesting in May

Colin Baker’s tour as Sherlock Holmes in Crime and Comedy Theatre’s production of Hound of the Baskervilles continues this spring. And some old friends from the world of Doctor Who join the Sixth Doctor actor at select performances. Unfortunately you’ve already missed your chance to see Baker reunited with former co-star Nicola Bryant at the Theatre Royal Winchester last week. But you’re still in time to catch Katy Manning’s guest starring role. The Jo Grant actor will be in the performance on the 1st of May at the Radlett Centre in Hertfordshire.

Terry Molloy (Davros) will be on stage for the entire tour, though, as Holmes’ steadfast companion Dr. Watson. Dee Sadler (Flowerchild, The Greatest Show in the Galaxy) also stars as Dr. Mortimer.

 

“What an absolute delight to be asked to join my dear friends Colin Baker, Dee Sadler and Terry Molloy,” said Katy Manning. “It will be a first with Terry Molloy and Dee Sadler, so that will be a real treat too. I stopped doing theatre a few years ago in favour of film, audio and TV, so it will be very exciting to dip my toes into the theatre waters once again.”

 

The ‘radio play on stage’ production is back for a second year following a successful tour in 2023

The legend of the Hound Of The Baskervilles has haunted the Baskerville family for generations. None more so than Sir Charles Baskerville, who died in mysterious circumstances worthy of the legend. This leads Doctor Mortimer to consult Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson, in the hope of preventing the heir to the Baskerville estate, Sir Henry, from suffering the same fate. But the supernatural seems a very long way from 221B Baker Street…

However, once Holmes and Watson journey to isolated Baskerville Hall, the line between reality and the legend becomes blurred. Death, doom and myth surround them. What is the secret of the butler in the night, whose is the mysterious lantern that shines in the darkness, and what hellish apparition stalks Dartmoor with murderous intent?

Crime And Comedy Theatre Company presents the story as a radio-play-live-on-stage. The setting is a radio studio, with the actors ready as if for a radio broadcast. Foley artists create the sound effects live on stage too. It all combines to transport the audience from Baker Street to Dartmoor, as the tale of murder, mystery and horror is brought to life! A rare chance to see these popular actors live at your local theatre, this is a play not to be missed.
