This town is described as gloomy and dark at night, but during the day, the area seems to brighten a little bit.“The driver pointed with his whip. ‘Baskerville Hall,’ said he… A few minutes later we had reached the lodge-gates, a maze of fantastic tracery in wrought iron, with weather-bitten pillars on either side, blotched with lichens, and surmounted by the boars’ heads of the Baskervilles”(p ).The Hound of the Baskervilles Picture.

10Sherlock HolmesSherlock Holmes is a very interesting character. He is witty and clever. The most important trait of the detective is that he figures out the most detailed facts about a mystery that no one would even think to bother about using his powers of deduction.“Sherlock Holmes had, in a very remarkable degree, the power of detaching his mind at will”(p. 39).
12As the narrator, Dr. Watson accompanies Sherlock Holmes throughout the course of the book. He is a bright man and tries to find the murderer who killed Sir Charles Baskerville. Sometimes Dr. Watson is afraid to speak his mind. Sherlock Holmes sometimes treats Watson like a fool.“I’m afraid, my dear Watson that most of your conclusions are erroneous….to be frank, that in noting your fallacies I was occasionally guided towards the truth.” (pg.11)Dr. WatsonDr. Watson.
