En route to Baskerville Hall, Watson meets Lestrade who is curious as to why he is in town. Watson replies he is there for "the sailing" and when Lestrade tells him there is none, Watson replies "I must have been misinformed." This is similar to Bogart's reply to Claude Rains when the latter tells him there are no waters in Casablanca (1942).

Nigel Stock was offered the role of Dr. Watson but he turned it down. He had previously played the character in Sherlock Holmes (1964).

In the scene where Lestrade believes he's captured Laura Lyons' killer, Holmes quotes from Scripture: "Love is as strong as death, jealousy as cruel as the grave." He and Lestrade both agree that it's from Isaiah 6:8. It's not. It's from Song of Songs 8:6. And the actual quote is "Love is strong as death, jealousy is cruel as the grave."
