Let’s be honest, the real question isn’t “To be or not to be?”, it’s what is Benedict’s Hamlet hair going to look like?…

Toupée or not toupée, that is the question –
Whether ‘tis kinder to Ben’s head to suffer
The fronds and flounces of outrageous wiggage,
Or to wield combs against a sea of tangles,
And by diffusing, groom them? To dye, to cut –
How short? – and with this style, to hope we end
The quarrels and the oft-conflicting feels
That fans are prone to? ‘Tis a costume concept
Devoutly to be wished. To dye too dark,
Too light, perchance too red; Why should we fear?
For when he steps on stage, with hair all done,
When he but ruffles up those errant curls,
He’ll make us swoon….

I heard that all the cool kids were coming up with coffeeshop AUs these days so I decided to do the same. I fear I may have misunderstood the central concept, though…

Not for the first time, my brain woke me up in the middle of the night and this time it whispered “What lessons would they teach at the Sherlock School of Dance?” It then refused to let me go back to sleep until I’d written this silly list. So are you prepared to burn… the dancefloor?

the real question is how the fuck did Ben jump so high??!!?!

His top is made out of rubber, his bottom is made out of springs. Basically, he’s bouncy, trouncy, flouncy, pouncy fun, fun, fun, fun, fun.

IMPORTANT NOTICE

The Otters Who Look Like Benedict Cumberbatch meme was actually just a statistical error. The average otter does NOT look like Benedict Cumberbatch. A single otter who hangs around movie premieres and TOTALLY looks like Benedict Cumberbatch was an outlier and should not have been counted.

This looks like a set-up for an appalling joke to me:
Q: Why is Benedict Cumberbatch like a Dunlop tyre?
He’s pumped up, firm and bouncy to the touch
He grips close, even in wet conditions
He can get changed in under two minutes
He only comes in black rubber
After I’ve gone around the block with him a few times, he’ll be completely worn out…

I happened to see the abovementioned Steven Moffat quote (from this interview) on my dashboard the other day, and as soon as I read it, I knew the concept would make a startling and unexpected opener to Sherlock season 4. It’ll stretch the BBC’s special effects budget to the limits, of course, but I’m sure the results will be earthshaking…

Rumours that Benedict Cumberbatch might be cast as Doctor Strange are running amok today, but since it might never happen, I thought I’d jump on the chance for a silly crossover joke while the going was good…

Gosh, it’s a Sherlock behind-the-scenes exclusive that I have completely made up! While Sherlock was doing his best French waiter impersonation in The Empty Hearse, little did we know that he ALSO slipped a cunningly prepared fake winelist in front of John, hoping that he might get the subtle hint. Sadly, John was too preoccupied to notice and Sherlock had to opt for the UNsubtle approach to returning from the dead…

And so the Flower People of Blargon 7 decided that they loved Benedict Cumberbatch more than anything else in the galaxy, and unanimously voted to make him their Perpetual Emperor of Fragrant Loveliness. To which he shrugged modestly and responded: “Oh crumpets.”

There was some delightful news today when Tennessee Aquarium announced that they have named one of their otters after Benedict Cumberbatch! They explain that it’s because of “viral Internet posts comparing his face to otter faces”, so I’m very proud. According to their website, Benny the otter is “always first in line at feeding time and is very vocal." They don’t mention whether he also does motion capture, but I bet he does.

Sadly I’m unlikely to have a reason to go to Tennessee in the near future, but I’ve provided this handy visual guide to help you distinguish between the snuffly-nosed playful cutie-pie and the otter who’s named after him…

#ACTING

Benedict Cumberbatch vividly recreates the experience of me finding a spider in the bathroom.

Has anybody else noticed that Benedict Cumberbatch reminding everyone that he did the motion capture is starting to sound like Martin Crieff reminding everyone he’s the captain? 

In the unlikely event of actor non-recognition, actor doffs cap and gestures to motion capture dots.

this is the standard amount of gold they put in a dwarf kingdom…
