Sherlock season four won’t premiere until next year—waiting for this show is the worst—so to tide us over the BBC and Masterpiece Theater are giving us a Christmas special this December, for which we now have a trailer. Christmas specials aren’t really a thing in the US anymore—unless you count the inevitable Singer From Network Competition Show Holiday Extravaganza Night—because the Star Wars Holiday Special pretty much ruined Full Story

That’s my takeaway from the news that Benedict Cumberbatch and Jake Gyllenhaal are in talks to star in a movie called The Current War, based on the nineteenth century patents arms race between Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse for control of the budding electric industry.

According to the Daily Mail, Benedict Cumberbatch’s son has been named Christopher Carlton Cumberbatch. CCC. I have thoughts, as if you didn’t know. I don’t usually care about a monogram, but there’s something about the CCC that really seems unfinished. Full Story

They were complaining about a breach of protocol when negative reviews for Benedict Cumberbatch’s Hamlet were published a couple of weeks ago ahead of official press night. Click here for a refresher. Last night’s performance was the first time it was OK to criticise the production. Full Story

The BBC’s Sherlock had a panel yesterday at Comic-Con that remained dry and panty-butter free as Benedict Cumberbatch, preparing to play Hamlet on the West End, was not on hand. But they did do a message video for the crowd, featuring The Batch, show co-creator (and the Superior Mycroft) Mark Gatiss, and Andrew Scott, who played (plays?) Moriarty. Full Story

In 2012 the remains of King Richard III were discovered beneath a parking lot in Leicester, England. It’s an incredible story and I don’t know how it wasn’t a bigger deal—England, was this a huge deal to you? Richard III died at the Battle of Bosworth Field in 1485 and his remains were thought lost for centuries. Full Story

I’m about to compliment Benedict Cumberbatch. Twice! Let’s just list the two compliments back to back: 1.I like his haircut. 2.I like his wedding dress. Check him out yesterday in London wearing his hair shorter. I like this. A lot. So much better. When you have a name like Benedict Cumberbatch and your hair is the way he used to have it, the poncy ass image is a lot easier to believe. Full Story

Benedict Cumberbatch and Sophie Hunter hit up the Vanity Fair party after the show. And maybe the photographer there asked for a kiss. And maybe Benedict obliged. And decided he would kiss AND close his eyes at the same time. Not a move I generally endorse. This is doesn’t qualify as an exception either. Full Story
