What’s going on at BBC4?

Basil Rathbone as Sherlock Holmes

So, nothing but pants on BBC4 for ages. Agreed? Then a Ghost Stories season. Wow. But just as soon as that finishes, a Sherlock Holmes season? Have they put Kool Aid in the water fountain? What’s happening? With weirdness like this, can we expect ITV1 to embark on a season of the plays of Sophocles starring Patsy Palmer and Robson Green?
