Sherlock has come out on top again - this time in a worldwide poll of most popular BBC television characters.

Actor Benedict Cumberbatch said he was "honoured" to see his portrayal of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's sleuth voted top by viewers in seven countries.

He continued: "Who would have thought a high-functioning sociopath could be so popular... all over the world?"

Another poll of iconic BBC moments saw Sherlock seemingly falling to his death score more than a quarter of the vote.

That put the ending of 2012's Reichenbach Fall episode streets ahead of Monty Python's Dead Parrot sketch, its closest competitor.
