Ritchie joins fight to save Conan Doyle's house

Sherlock Holmes director Guy Ritchie has reportedly joined a campaign to save the house where creator Arthur Conan Doyle once lived.

The legendary novelist wrote some of his most famous stories, including Sherlock Holmes novel The Hound of the Baskervilles, at the mansion in Surrey, England and the house is set to be developed into an apartment block.

However, the redevelopment has come under fire from locals and celebrity fans including Stephen Fry, actor William Roache and funnyman Griff Rhys Jones, who have all joined protests against the plans.

Ritchie, who has made two successful Sherlock Holmes movies with Robert Downey, Jr. in the title role, has now thrown his support behind the campaign to save the Undershaw estate in Hindhead, Surrey and turn it into a museum, according to Britain's The People.
