Details of the characters needed for The Hound of The Baskervilles

NameAgeDescription
Dr Watson40-55Unassuming man, comfortable in his life choices but always trying to meet the challenges posed by Holmes – with some frustrating shortfalls. Has enormous respect and admiration for Holmes as a friend and mentor.
Holmes40-55Teasingly playful with Watson, generally disinterested, bordering on arrogant, with others until his interest is piqued.
Dr Mortimer30-40Unimaginative, serious, confident, quietly spoken. Genuinely concerned about the death of Sir Charles and the tale of the hound.
Sir Henry25-45Self-assured, though has underlying concerns about the recent events and the tale of the hound.
Barrymore55+The quintessential working class, long-serving and unwaveringly loyal butler.
Mrs Barrymore55+The down-to-earth, ever supporting wife. Most likely from a lowly background but has pride in her life achievements.
John Stapleton25+A little eccentric, probably a bit rough looking. Amiable and neighbourly type. Needs to be likeable. Close in age to Beryl.
Beryl Stapleton25+Nervous and agitated person, even suggesting a touch of lunacy, occasionally just bordering hysteria. Mercurial, visibly changing character toward and away from normality. Close in age to John.
Laura Lyons25-35Attractive young woman divorced from a bad husband and led a difficult life. Not entirely comfortable in the surroundings of the manor. Responds and acts as someone who was possibly more than friends with Sir Charles.
