    You would have to be a super sleuth with a magnifying glass in hand to detect the slightest humour in The Hound of the Baskervilles, Arthur Conan Doyle's masterpiece of mystery and suspense. It's a notoriously sombre piece of turn-of-the-20th-century fiction and the creepy Victorian thriller is the last story anyone would consider adaptable to the stage expressly for laughs.
