A night packed with treats for Sherlock fans – there’s the final episode on BBC1, a superb documentary on BBC4 and even Countryfile has donned its wellies to muscle in on all things Holmes with a look at the life of his creator, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

John Craven and Helen Skelton are in Doyle’s beloved Surrey, where Craven explores the countryside and has a potter around the former home where Doyle wrote The Hound of the Baskervilles.

Meanwhile, up in North Yorkshire, Adam Henson takes a look at a rare sheep breed and Tom Heap wonders whether the Government has kept its promise to rein in huge housing developments in the countryside.


John Craven and Helen Skelton head to Surrey, where he explores the countryside favoured by Arthur Conan Doyle and gets a peek inside the Sherlock Holmes author's former home, and she talks to an artist with an all-consuming passion for horses. Adam Henson is on the North Yorkshire coast to meet a farmer who keeps a rare breed of sheep - the Leicester longwool - and Tom Heap investigates whether Prime Minister David Cameron has kept his 2012 promise to stop big housing estates being built in the countryside next to villages.
