Bolsover Castle 1

The Antiques Roadshow visits Bolsover Castle in Derbyshire, where treasures include original illustrations for a Roald Dahl story, a miniature workshop stocked with thumb-sized working tools, and racing leathers worn by legendary motorcyclist Barry Sheene.

There's childhood nostalgia aplenty when the team appraise two original illustrations for Roald Dahl's story Fantastic Mr Fox and a collection of Star Wars toys, complete with boxes, looking for a good home now that their owner needs to make room for a new baby.

Glass specialist Andy McConnell is thrilled by a daughter's quest to find a replacement Venetian glass figure for her mother after a cherished piece dramatically exploded, while a mystery metal rod keeps the crowd guessing and turns out to be far older and more valuable than anyone expected.

What seems on first glance to be a rather plain doll's house turns out to have been designed to show a plumber how to install a central heating system, while specialist John Foster marvels at a miniature workshop stocked with tiny working tools that was crafted by a disabled man with incredible skill.

Ronnie Archer-Morgan challenges Fiona to spot the Impostor among a collection of rare silk scarves, and a pair of battered racing leathers evoke fond memories of motorcycle legend Barry Sheene.
