Setting “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. 53-54).

  10. Sherlock Holmes Sherlock 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).

  12. Dr. Watson As 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. Watson.
