The Hound of Baskervilles is an adventure featuring Sherlock Holmes who is an independent detective and excels in solving the most esoteric of mysteries. The story is narrated by Dr. Watson.

The only person who can be considered close to Holmes is an army doctor named John H. Watson who after getting injured on a mission in Afghanistan is sent back to London. Here he meets Holmes and a quick bond forms between them with Watson intrigued by Holmes’ profession and the way he goes about solving cases. He is always willing to be his aide in any case which requires his assistance and also plays the role of Holmes' chronicler and records his cases for him.

All but four of the stories featuring Sherlock Holmes have been narrated by Watson.
