Hello! And welcome to the ninth episode of Hammer House of Podcast, where Paul Cornell (Doctor Who, Elementary) and Lizbeth Myles (Verity!) discuss, in order of UK release, every horror movie made by Hammer Film Productions between 1955 and 1976, from The Quatermass Xperiment to To the Devil… A Daughter.
In this month’s episode we arrive at Hammer’s first and only foray into the world of Sherlock Holmes. It’s 1959’s The Hound of the Baskervilles, where Peter Cushing does some spectacular running through mist and moor, and one of us genuinely thinks the Great Dane in a mask looks scary. And we’ve also got a special guest! It’s James Goss, writer of many excellent things, but most relevant here is his play, The Gentlemen of Horror, a poignant and intimate work exploring the friendship between Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee through the decades.
