No need to say goodbye to Benedict Cumberbatch just yet!
Our own Sherlock plays Rosencrantz in Rom Stoppard’s “Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead, excerpted for the National Theatre London 50th anniversary special on Great Performances this Friday at 9/8c.
Friendly reminder that you have a Valentine’s date with Benedict Cumberbatch & Andrew Scott tonight on PBS. <3
Steven Moffat talks about Moriarty…
That one time where Benedict Sherlock is John Watson.
It sounds like the kind of joke you pull out of a Christmas cracker…
Q: “What’s Sherlock Holmes’s favourite party game?”
A: “Give Us a Clue.”
For younger viewers (or younger than me, anyway) Give Us a Clue was televised charades (yes, really) with Una Stubbs, who now plays Sherlock’s landlady Mrs Hudson, leading one team of celebrity guessers while Lionel Blair took charge of their opponents.
So it’s rather satisfying to hear that while Benedict Cumberbatch was shooting Sherlock’s lengthy best man’s speech in wedding episode The Sign of Three, his co-stars were relaxing by playing charades.
"I loved doing the wedding," said Martin Freeman who, as John Watson, was marrying his real-life partner Amanda Abbington, aka Mary Marston. "It was a beautiful few days on a lovely set, with lovely people and we got to watch Ben do a monologue… We were just playing games between takes while he was having a nervous breakdown."
"We played give us a clue with Una Stubbs," confirmed Abbington, speaking at the iTunes launch of Sherlock series three. (x)
Behold! Cumberbatch, er— we mean #Counterbatch, is finally here…
Shout out to Benedict for managing not to fiddle with every single prop he came across during series 3.
the rig they used for when Sherlock falls back after being shot
he is one curvy motherfucker
then why did that fucking plant move
You are asking the right questions.

An exclusive behind the scenes pic of Benedict Cumberbatch from the set of #Sherlock - The Empty Hearse.
There’s still time to catch up on BBC iPlayer: http://bbc.in/1dtywu0
I’m still jealous! I’d love to try this stunt.
Well, I was going to reblog and say that despite everything this was a really cool photo but then
HE HAD A LANYARD ON SET, AND THEY HAD HIM TAKE IT OFF FOR LAZARUS.
- Thompson: I've got a great idea--I want to write an episode without Benedict Cumberbatch in it!
- Crickets: ~chirp~
- Moffat & Gatiss: You know what else could be fun? How about we help you write your episode?
Must not point at elephant trunk. Must. Not. Point. At. Elephant Trunk.
THEY GOT THE ELEPHANT OUT OF THE ROOM
Benedict Cumberbatch, Unlocking Sherlock
Wasn’t there another recent Benedict quote about Sherlock not coming right out and telling John he did it to save his life?
Yeah, I know, I know. You can say it’s lies or confusion or misdirection if you want. But whatever it is, it doesn’t jibe with the Holmes Bros All-Encompassing Wonder Plan of the Lazarus solution.
