Sherlock’s return

It’s about three months until Sherlock returns on the BBC and/or we all pirate it—no use pretending any of us are actually going to wait till it airs on PBS in twenty-motherf*cking-fourteen—and we have our first teaser. It’s a totally uninformative glimpse of Sherlock playing peek-a-boo with all the main characters and I love it. Full Story

Sherlockiana

That’s an actual word—it’s the name given to the cottage industry that sprung up around Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s original Sherlock Holmes stories, of films and television shows and even other stories written by different people. Anything Sherlock Holmes-adjacent is part of Sherlockiana, which means Comic-Con now has a footnote in the Sherlock Holmes encyclopedia, as Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss, co-creators and writers of the BBC’s Sherlock, as well as producer Sue Vertue, appeared at Comic-Con on Friday to discuss series three. Full Story

Who isn’t? Everyone loves Matt Damon. Speaking to Vulture about his Emmy nomination (for the HBO/BBC miniseries Parade’s End), Benedict Cumberbatch confessed he’s got a big ole man-crush on fellow nominee Matt Damon. He calls him “Matt”, imagines having a dinner party with him, and teases the journalist about passing along a message about what a big fan he is, which is pretty much what we all do with celebrities we really like, right? Fanboying all over Matt Damon is the most accessible Cumberbatch has been in ages. Full Story

Hello Kitty Cumberbatch

Benedict Cumberbatch is in Japan to promote Star Trek Into Darkness. As you can see, there was an enthusiastic crowd awaiting him there. What happens when a Hello Kitty is also a Cumberbatch Twi-Hard? Is it like combining Mariah Carey and a Belieber into one body? Someone needs to Frankenstein that for me. Full Story

Benedict Cumberbatch was in Greece yesterday to promote Sherlock. He looks hot. As in temperature. In other Cumberbatch news, a still of him in Twelve Years A Slave, Steve McQueen’s upcoming film starring Chiwetel Ejiofor about a free man tricked into slavery was released yesterday. Michael Fassbender plays an evil plantation owner. Full Story

I’ve noticed it before, haven’t you? That Benedict Cumberbatch is patently embarrassed by the name his fan collective has—as he is quick to point out—bestowed upon themselves? He doesn’t even like to say it. Start watching/reading Cumberbatch’s interviews en masse, as I have done over the last week, and it comes up a lot. Full Story

That was the most excellent term Simon Pegg coined to describe the shivery feeling people get around Benedict Cumberbatch. It came up in this terrible interview, which is worth a watch for how thoroughly Pegg dominates it and how quick he is off the cuff. Full Story

The world premiere of Star Trek Into Darkness (god, that TITLE) was held in London last night and Benedict Cumberbatch showed up in a sharp suit with his long, dark Sherlock hair. This is my favorite Batch—tall, alien, bespoke. Reviews of Darkness are rolling out and, as to be expected, everyone is singling out Cumberbatch and his performance, with a lot of people declaring it the push over the top. Full Story

Benedict Not-Posh

Last August, in advance of the HBO drama Parade’s End, Benedict Cumberbatch gave some interviews in which he talked about his background, the poshness thereof, and the relative annoyingness of Cumberbatch talking about it versus other people talking about it (we get annoyed when he talks about, he gets annoyed when we talk about it). Full Story

Looking good in that overcoat

There. I said something nice about re: appearance and Benedict Cumberbatch. He does wear an overcoat very well. Here he is with Martin Freeman in London working on Sherlock. Timely too because this morning I read a headline on Deadline with the following title: Sherlock Producer Pleads With Fans To Keep London Filming Locations Secret I guess the Sherlock faithful are going Twi-Hard on the set and they’re now worried about plot spoilers. Full Story
