Benedict Cumberbatch in costume, on a bike for ‘The Imitation Game’: so lovely?


Please don’t yell at me! These photos are from November 3rd and I only just saw them over this past weekend. To be fair (to myself), I think they were released a week late. So don’t be mad, just be happy that we have NEW Benedict Cumberbatch photos. Obviously, he’s in character as Alan Turing on the set of The Imitation Game in England. Call me crazy, but I think he’s wearing prosthetics on his face, either that or he’s wearing some kind of mouthpiece that’s changing the way his face looks.

Still, so pretty, right? That bike is so lucky. It gets to gently cup Benedict Cumberbatch’s delicates all day. Mm. There’s also some good hand p0rn happening here, as well as great pale p0rn, for those of us who dig pale men. He’s so otherworldly beautiful, y’all. I think these photos just got me pregnant. Nine months from now I will give birth to twin alien babies. I will name them Cassius Barnaby Titus Carlton Cumberbatch and Sebastian Chadwick Timothy Quinlan Cumberbatch. Sigh. Cass and Quinn Cumberbatch?! COME ON.

Benedict also has a new interview in Interview Magazine, done by his friend (and Tinker Tailor costar) Gary Oldman. You can read the interview here. I enjoyed it, but I’m a Cumberbitch. And I didn’t enjoy it enough to actually do highlights or anything, mostly because most of the quotes sound like stuff Benedict has said before. It’s not like he’s giving us explicit details about his auburn dong muff. (Hint to Benedict: you really should try to mention your auburn dong muff in ALL interviews. Please.)

    Well, there’s no Hems, or Hiddles, or Rupert Friend in the Shower….fine, I’ll take him for a spin.
    On that bike.

    • j.eyre says:

      “Well, there’s no Hems, or Hiddles, or Rupert Friend in the Shower” – are they all in the shower together, because you have my attention.

      • j.eyre says:

        You frighten me, woman. I said I was going on the 15th. Have a babysitter and everything. I wrote that to you.

        How did you know we snuck out to see it on Sunday? My lawd, you really are my soul sister.

        And you know how it was – you saw it.

      • Anna says:

        1-I fast-forwarded time bc the wait was killing me.
        2-what I meant – SMARTA$$ – was, how was it FOR YOU?

      • j.eyre says:

        My @$$ is really terrible clever.

        Darling, it was everything I wanted it to be.

      • Eve says:

        @ J.Eyre:

        Did my spoiling completly ruin the cameo for you? Or just partially?

      • Eve says:


        STAHP giving me the cold shoulder!!! It was a tiny little spoiler, how can you not forgive me?

      • Anna says:

        I want to go see it again, but that little theater that plays it in English is all sorts of annoying to get to and the screen is small. But jokes! And voices! Do I brave the Russian dubbing and just give my eyes a treat? Or suffer major discomfort for the dulcet tones of Hiddlesworth?

        Miss Jane – it was far from EVERYTHING I wanted it to be, but it was good enough and at least there was HIM.

        PS – the POST-credits part was my favorite. Now breakfasts are full of expectations…

      • j.eyre says:

        @Eve – I spoke my piece on the subject and all was forgiven. Remember I am in California so when you all get into the thick of it, I am usually making breakfast and packing lunches – thus the periodic absences about this time.

        If my shoulders are cold, darling, why don’t you get your Brazilian derriere over here and warm them.

      • Eve says:

        @ Anna:

        Suffer the discomfort — I simply refuse to watch anything dubbed, not even on TV, for free…(well, except cartoons).

        @ J.Eyre:

        Forgiven, yes. But you still haven’t answered my question: did I ruin it (my former CB-husband’s cameo) completly or just partially?

      • Marty says:

        @Anna- I agree with Eve. The voices are the best part! Hiddlesworth scenes are the BEST part of the movie, it wouldn’t be the same without those deep, velvety, smooth octaves surrounding you in a dark room…this was a mistake. I’ve gone and worked myself up.

      • j.eyre says:

        Anna darling – I do think it was all I wanted it to be, for a comic book movie. The post post I adored, beyond reason. There are some others but some of my other darlings here have not seen it and you really cannot say a darn thing about that movie without giving something away. I am impressed with how deceitful those trailers are. As for Thor himself, I did not think t possible to fall any further for hem (typo – it stays) and, once again, he proved me wrong. I completely understand your dilemma but I could never give up on his or Tommy’s voices (or Anthony Hopkins for that matter. OMG – Ray Stevenson! How could you listen to anyone speaking for Ray Stevenson?!?)

        @Eve, darling: since you seem to be in pit bull mode, I shall strive to be as honest as possible with you. I suppose, ultimately, you did not “ruin” anything, I enjoyed the movie and the scene in question just fine. I made a concerted effort to not learn thing about the movie and was pleased that I did not. I was waiting for the cameo as a result of your spoiler, yes, and that was unfortunate. Does that answer your question to your satisfaction? I do believe Fanty is waiting for me to drive this knitting needle in your flank and I don’t want to be rude by cutting our conversation short to do so.

      • Eve says:

        @ J.Eyre:

        Hmmm, I’ll interpret it as “b” — I ruined it partially (meaning, you wouldn’t have known about any C. Evans cameo and that surprise/cameo would have been better hadn’t I told you — albeit accidentally — about it).

        Fair enough.

      • Anna says:

        Miss Jane, sweetheart -

        Thor 1 was (and remains) my fave Marvel movie and 2nd fave comic book one after Batman Begins. I watched T1 3 times before looking up the lead. It was light, funny, romantic, simple. Without giving anything away, in T2 I wasnt into the villain or the threat. That’s my #1 problem. And #2 is that I had to wait for post-credits for something which I really wanted to see in acts 1, 2, and 3. Everything else may stay :) Esp the humor – It was sharp, It was legit funny, it was well-delivered. Now I just need to get a proper date to drag to that no-man’s-land of a theater. And hide my O every time Hiddlesworth is on-screen.

      • j.eyre says:

        Ah, Anna – to your point about the villain, I felt he was underused. I also felt Sif and the warriors 3 were underused (see above for RAY STEVENSON mention) so yes, it was certainly not without its faults. However, because some of the story far exceeded any expectation I had, I suppose it balanced out. And on that point, I may just have to email you.

        There was NOT enough touching between the Loki and Thor. Of course, they could have had a full-frontal sex scene and I would probably still think there was not enough touching there. Did you see CHem on Conan? That boy is trying to kill me… and what a way to go.

      • Anna says:

        I will be awaiting the email with bated breath.

        And yes, he was charming and hilarious and lovely on Conan. And other appearances. I still cant stop thinking about the large head on top of the short stubby sh@ft …. of Mjolnir.

  2. Nev says:

    Bahahahahahahha the baby names!!! so good.

  3. Kiddo says:

    He looks like he always does. What am I not getting about “in costume”?

  4. T.fanty says:

    Huzzah. I happily volunteer to be the bike. Although I can’t promise to treat the delicates gently.

    Those pictures of the dork on his little bike make me happy.

  5. Tish says:

    Gary Oldman calls him “Cumby”. Yes.

  6. Maggie says:

    I am so looking forward to The Imitation Game. Benedict looks perfect “in costume” and the story sounds heartbreaking. Once again, I am sure, he will disappear into the role and make you forget you are watching Benedict.

    I love this look on him.

  7. Abby says:

    Hahahh the baby names are awesome. I haven’t read the entire interview yet but read some quotes here and there.

    BC and Gary seem to share such a great bond…it’s lovely that BC has Gary (extremely talented) to guide him through.

    Also someone told me that Gary calls him Cumby as well….hehhe I like calling him that too :)

    The pics are lovely as usual. I am hoping that this time the director and the script do justice to Cumby’s talent (unlike TFE).

    Also just dropping this lovely pic of Cumby in waistcoat (yum) at the Britannia awards. Also with him in the pic is Julia Roberts and Sean Penn (rubbing shoulders with bigwigs…he has come so far).

  8. Maureen says:

    I think he’s changing his face internally. He’s THAT good. Anyone who saw him in Parade’s End knows what I mean. The man can change his face just by internalizing his character. He is phenomenal. I do think there’s a good possibility that he used something in his mouth to play Christopher in Parade’s End which gave his cheeks a fuller look. But everything else is him — and I don’t even know if he did use something. But the point is none of the characters he plays look like Benedict Cumberbatch. He just channels his characters so perfectly that he turns into them.

  9. TheOriginalKitten says:

    He looks good! …and I’m not typically a fan.
    I like that nerdy, side-part hairstyle …it suits him!

  10. GeeMoney says:

    Love him!

    And please Kaiser, put as many articles as you want about Cumby on this site… I enjoy reading them. Eff all of the haters.

  11. Allison says:

    This look is really doing it for me. I can’t wait for this movie. 90+ minutes of Cumby p0rn.

    I give a standing ovation to the makeup people for doing right by his eyebrows. That can totally change a face. His are usually much lighter and he doesn’t always keep up with them. I would have no problem coloring in the Cumberbrows every morning while he sat bare assed on the edge of the tub as it filled up with hot, hot water for our dual bath.

  12. drea says:

    I think he looks his best when he’s film-dressed and made up for a past era. Left to his own devices, he wears flipflops with a scarf (sorry, I can’t forget).

  13. Felice says:

    I know people like to paint this picture that he’s really awkward with women but boy has game. :p
    He did a wheelie on the bike and turned to a girl and said, “I do my own stunts.”

  14. MissMary says:

    I wonder what his next project is; this one finished yesterday while he was on his way back from LA (they just wrapped the last scenes, etc). It’s too soon for that Lost City movie and I haven’t heard any more about the biopic of the Beatles manager…

    • ag-UK says:

      He won’t know what to do with himself. More scarves, flat cap shopping and watching Chelsea play (:

    • Tish says:

      I think there’s a super super secret mystery project this spring involving a certain JJ Abrams. There’s also the Everest movie, if he does it. Lost City will shoot this summer according to reports.

    • Abby says:

      His name was being considered for the Everest movie but nothing confirmed (I have a feeling he won’t do it)

      Also Star Wars shooting in spring…if he is in it, he needs to hold out some dates for it too (considering his role isn’t that big in the first one…but will increase in VIII & IX) again that is a big IF he is in it. Then Hamlet is in fall and Lost City of Z is shooting in summer.

      I feel like he is just chilling and taking a break. Also he hasn’t returned from LA yet. It’s good because I am hoping to see his lovely face during award seasons (even if he isn’t nominated)

    • Leah says:

      Oh dear… Cumberbatch on Holiday? Not sure we’re prepared for that!

      • EscapedConvent says:

        That’s exactly what I thought. He might go off the rails with a little time to himself. The last week he had off, there was IbizaGate & then BirthdayPartyGate.

        His niece/PA will have to get the short leash.

        On the upside, maybe he’ll have time to get his Labradoodle.

      • curlsunited says:

        We all know what happened when he had a few weeks off during summer …

        I guess he will be busy promoting his upcoming films.

        ETA: EscCon, you beat me by one minute.

      • Tish says:

        He’ll be promoting Sherlock. I hope more extensively this time because it’s more popular than it was two years ago.

        Poor Emily, Cumby thanked her (and his sister Tracks, yes pet name) at the BAFTA’s but then it was cut in the televised version.

      • MissMary says:

        I think he’s learned his lesson about that sort of situation… Past several times he’s been asked in interviews, he’s been pretty flat out “My career is my life, I’m single” (which sounds like a big “back off, gold diggers” to me…) But I agree w/what Tish said re promoting Sherlock. He’s already giving some blurbs about it and as it’s getting near December with the BFI debut of the first ep of this season/series, he and the others involved will likely being doing more and more promos.

        His friend James Rhodes said something about the trip to LA being “all expenses paid” so that says to me it’s more business than holiday (but the guy’s gotta have some fun in there somewhere…)

      • Leah says:

        @ EsCon- Yep. Emily the PA is probably already blocking out time and stocking up on water/gatorade/pain relievers. And anticipating the Christmas bonus! As to the Labradoodle- one can only hope!! The image of him walking along (flat cap obligatory, of course) with this fluffy, hyper puppy just makes me grin.

        @Curls- That’s what I was wondering… Hobbit 2 comes out over the holidays, so I imagine he’ll maybe be enlisted to do some things for that? Wondering what the “go to” outfit will be for A Very Merry Cumberbatch Holiday Press Tour Season? Not sure the chambray shirt has survived that many washings. Perhaps a fabulous scarf?

        And it’s been awhile since he’s had an “official” girlfriend/significant other- I figure we’re due? Although, I shouldn’t say that- Ibizagate/Birthdaygate was enough!!!

      • T.Fanty says:

        Maybe that’s why Emily wasn’t allowed to come to LA. He’s making her hang around bars in Mayfair, checking out wife prospects for him, so that he can make the most of his time off. She has a spy camera in her bag, and is getting surreptitious shots of blonde, mid-30s, fertile looking socialites.

      • Felice says:

        I imagine he’s doing Hobbit stuff. Excited to see him for the Sherlock press conference. I’ll make a sign for you guys :p

      • EscapedConvent says:


        Then we need to get to Mayfair tout de suite & shut that operation down.

        I can’t find the Vespa. Did you let Miss Jane take it? She has her own pink Thor scooter, you know.

      • Leah says:

        T.Fanty- That actually makes sense. Perhaps we should be staking out bars in Mayfair while wearing “woolen things” and looking a strange mix between sexy and strangely matronly.

        And owls. Someone could get a labradoodle, and we should be set. We aren’t quite socialites, but maybe we could fake it well enough? Either that, or just default to the “No, really, Benedict, that’s fascinating, please tell me more!” until he forgets we aren’t named Clementine Bunnyfluff and don’t have connections.

        Also- Cumberbatch’s next big scandal: Cumby’s PA Found In Bar with Hidden Camera!! Claims it was because “His mum wants grandkids and won’t shut up about it, and I’m not going through another model scandal! My doctor said my liver probably couldn’t handle that much alcohol for at least another year, damn it!”

      • EscapedConvent says:


        Yep, it’s hard to forget that terrible week in July!


        Yes to the flat cap! That would be the perfect Doodle-walking cap for him. They probably make them in puppy sizes, too.

      • EscapedConvent says:


        All right, who wants to be sexy, & who should be strangely matronly? It will take far less effort for me to be the latter…..but the matronly one will have to take charge of the Owl, & they’re tricky. You can’t just put them on a leash & give them Snausages. An owl will probably want to run its own drink tab, too.

      • Abby says:

        Oh god you guys are making me anxious about his holiday lol.

        I truly hope and pray that I won’t see him near that fashion bi**h and any other gold diggers.

        Who else is he rumoured with?

        Btw guys I read this comment by someone on tumblr or under some article (few weeks back) saying that Alice Eve had said in an interview that Cumby tried to hook up with her but she declines as she doesn’t see him that way…so they are just friends.

        I have never seen an article/video of her saying that…so any truth to this?? If yea then she is really really really stupid to let go this sexy beast.

      • Felice says:


        WTF? You don’t call out a “good friend” like that. I wonder who started that.

        Liv Tyler was a rumor.

        he and Martin Freeman you know :p (oh Simon).

      • Tish says:

        Ugh. Let’s not talk about the fashion b*tch she craves this type of attention. Haha.

        Anyway, about the Alice Eve thing, that’s just from some fangirl’s imagination, obviously! The DM will be all over it by now if she said something. And they were actually pitying Cumby for it! Ugh. She has never said anything like that even when she (and Pegg) was asked if Cumby is single during the Star Trek press. See, that’s why I think they’re close friends for real. She’s not using him to stir something up. These “shipping” fangirls are making Cumby seem like a loser.

      • LadySlippers says:

        Sad to report but apparently BC was back in the UK for TIG wrap. At least that’s what’s being reported. So he flew in & out of LA just for the ceremony. No LA holiday. :-(

      • Abby says:

        @Felice oh yea that Liv Tyler BS is old…I meant any new ones he is linked to.

        Lol Martin and him will forever be linked (courtesy fangirls hehhe)

        I know if she actually said that I wanna smack her for saying it in public but I have never heard or read anything like this yet so maybe that person was making shit up.

        I wasn’t sure if it’s a BS comment or had some truth to it….hence asked here to clear it out.

      • Abby says:

        @Tish yes I thought it was made up too because if she did say something like this then many of us here would have known.

        I agree with you that they are just good friends (I don’t believe that FWB rumour at all). I have never really liked Alice much as an actress or as a person even YET but I won’t judge her cz I don’t know her.

        But I really loved her praise for BC @ Bafta. It seemed very genuine and cute.

        My mom saw it and said his face lit up when she came on stage (which I also thought). She thinks they should date as they look cute together ( yes I rolled my eyes when she said that hehehe).

        @lady thanks for confirming he isn’t here :)

      • Leah says:


        Well, good point on the owl, perhaps we’ll have to rethink the owl… unless it would be willing to get by on fizzy tombangers? Either that or we get a still and start making out own brand of backroom hooch.

        We could always trade off? See which one he goes for, like a science experiment?

      • T.Fanty says:

        Okay, ladies, here’s the plan. Everyone get an owl-sweater. We’ll make a portfolio of selfies and C.V.s and send them all to Wanda. Let’s face it – she’s probably the one who gets to make the final decision on who supplies her grandchild, anyway. I’m sure Cumby won’t even be allowed a say.

      • Abby says:

        @T.Fanty….great plan but I shall pass as I am only 22 and not ready to bear kids for Cumby…as a matter of fact for anyone at this age lol.

        So you guys go ahead and let me know who Mama Batch picked to be the dutiful wife to Cumby ;)

      • Leah says:

        I DEFINITELY think that Mama Cumberbatch probably is a HUGE factor. I’ll have to slant my CV accordingly. Perhaps attach pictures of recently baked cookies and my knitting credentials.

        In regards to Alice Eve… I dunno much about her. She seems pretty harmless, and like she and Cumberbatch are pretty friendly. And, in some ways, I always imagined Cumby ending up with Eve or someone like Eve. Not sure why…

      • MissMary says:

        @LAdySlippers: That’s what I thought and was kind of surprised to see folks saying he was holidaying in LA. But yeah makes sense he’s back for the wrap of TIG and to start doing any pick ups and such they need for voice, etc.

        Re Alice Eve…They’ve been friends for like ten years now and even though she seems graspy with him, I really don’t see that ever being anything more than friends. THey’d have gone for it by now, otherwise. Besides, isn’t she dating that guy from Mick Jagger’s bday? The one she was photographed holding hands with a few months ago?

      • Eve says:

        @ Leah:

        “And, in some ways, I always imagined Cumby ending up with Eve”

        That’s right: Cumby should end up with me.

        “or someone like Eve.”

        Nope, only me.

      • curlsunited says:

        While you are all busy making selfies and reading up on strigidae and tytonidae for your job interviews and/or assessment days with Wanda my own fiendish plan involves rubbing myself with bacon (or frying some bacon on my travel iron and then iron my skull-patterned blouse) and roaming across Hampstead Heath. Goodness, I know all the dog paths there from the ponds to Kenwood House and all of Cumby’s flat caps. Easy, eh? (At least the bacon trick worked for George Clooney and his dog.)

      • T.Fanty says:

        *settles down with Wanda and a box of wine to watch Curls run across the heath, followed by a thousand hungry dogs.*

        On the upside, that might bag you Tom Hardy. I think Cumby might need to actually get his dog before your pongo-and-perdita plan comes to fruition.

      • Tish says:

        @Leah Yes, I was thinking he’ll end up with someone like Alice Eve too. Long-time friend, posh schooling, same actorl-y cirle. And looks like Cumby has a mummy fixation of sorts and Eve actually has the same type as Wanda when she was young, blonde bob cut and all. Anyway, here’s an account of Eve’s speech at the BAFTA as it was cut too. It’s from a fan who spent $500 for the ticket.

        “They cut a funny story she told about how Ben rolled licorice cigarettes when they were on the set of “Hawking”, which was when she met him for the first time. She also talked about how Ben was so calm & made it so easy for her to be herself on set as that was her very first time on a film set. She said she was so completely nervous but that Ben was so sweet and that’s what she would always cherish as her first memory of him. That succeeded in bringing a tear to my eye…The majority of her speech was wondering if Ben’s view of the world was as childlike as it seemed on that first day of “Hawking” and that it is but it is tempered with a groundedness but one that hasn’t robbed him of that naiveté. She said such glowing things about him that I honestly had to fight not to cry and, when they showed Ben on a couple of occasions, you could tell he was really moved by what she said.”

      • Jojo says:

        He’ll find someone out of the acting profession, I’m sure. That seems overwhelmingly likely to me. He has several female friends who are in the acting world and went to private school (and I doubt very much whether that heightens the likelyhood of him dating a person). Siobhan Hewlett for example.
        And as for the ‘mummy fixation’ Whut?

      • Felice says:

        I honestly think that if he were to end up with anyone, it would be his 12 year ex. Pictures of them together just make me sad because they were clearly really happy. Then again, I have no clue what happened and no one does. Bless them for keeping it quiet and bless her for not throwing shade.

      • Tish says:

        Oh, Olivia. She’s lovely isn’t she? And they still clearly adore each other. Just read their interviews and it does make you think that there’s still something there. She has a boyfriend at the moment though.

      • Felice says:

        We really do not give her enough credit. She could reveal so much dirt but she is respectful and just stays focused on her career in interviews.

        Four for you, Olivia. You go, Olivia!!

    • Green Girl says:

      He’s got Smaug and August to promote, too, I’m guessing. I think 2014 will be just as busy for him – that Lost City movie, then maaaaaybe Star Wars VII, and supposedly Everest? And then Hamlet in the fall? I didn’t follow BC at all earlier this year, so I had no idea he was also managing to squeeze in Little Favour. I wonder if he’ll do some random small project again.

  15. Trudy says:

    I love period flicks. Not really a Cumberbitch but I can appreciate his talent. Cillian Murphy now, is a really handsome man. Terrific actor too with the most amazing blue eyes. My god.

  16. flavia_deluce says:

    Kaiser, your Cumbercoverage always makes my day.

  17. KellyinSeattle says:

    Dirty Mind Alert: The light on his bike is perfectly, strategically placed….a light in his personal area…. :)

  18. Indira says:

    I have just ten minutes ago finished the last ep of season 2 of Sherlock and by God I am so hooked! His voice is all kinds of chocolatey!

    • LadySlippers says:

      Indira, there are plenty of other works of his that show off that yummy voice…. Keep watching and listening. :-)

    • curlsunited says:

      I’m usually not a big fan of audio books, but if you like them here’s good news: he has narrated quite a number of books and you can listen hours and hours to his exceptional voice.

      * whispers * I have “The Memoirs of Giacomo Casanova” on my phone and find them very, erm, inspiring indeed.

      • LadySlippers says:

        Oh Curls, you do know what makes me tick. *fans face while reaching out for a wall to keep from wobbling*

        Also, you and I think alike however my plan does not involve bacon (I’m trying to attract the Fabulous Benny Boy as a companion NOT a canine companion)…. However it did include HH…. ;-)

      • Vesta says:

        Sigh, I wish I could be here on right time, but I send a late thank you for this audio book tip! They sound great. (And I’m sure they will also literally sound great…)

      • curlsunited says:

        @Vesta: Hope you read this.
        I’m afraid I can’t post the link here, but there’s one tumblr site that has a link to many of B.’s audio books and much of his work in radio drama on Mixcloud (for free). You might want to look into that. Also by all means listen to “Cabin Pressure”. He is brilliant at comedy and his Martin Crieff (the insecure pilot of a tiny airline) shows what a well-rounded, versatile actor he is (btw, hands off Roger Allam alias First Officer Douglas Richardson. He’s all MINE!).

        Some genius came up with this:

        This never fails to brighten my day.

        LadySlippers, thank you.

        I tend to get carried away when it comes to CP because it is so otterly fantastic (I shed a couple of tears yesterday when I learned that there will be just one more episode).
        The missing link is to be found next to Cumby’s herringbone jacket, but I think you got that (oh, I just checked. It fills my heart with joy to start my day with pictures of Cumby in a bold combination of grey and olive and with an alcoholic beverage in his hand. )

    I’ve been waiting for someone to make this movie for like two years, the script is unbelievably good! Now just have to wait for a release date…

    ” RovaGate/PR disaster, ”

    What was that?

    To me Cumberbatch’s features look like something from a Norman Rockwell painting. When he’s styled this way the effect is even more pronounced.

    Did the blind-item from ibiza-gate ever get resolved? True/Not true? :-/

  24. True to my name, as ever, ladies, but you’ve given a decided uplift to a dreary, rainsodden November Thursday. It’s somehow fitting that the Wizard has the otter as his meme since I also love otters (have 2, one freshwater in bronze & one seawater in soapstone—so my info re otters: freshwater swim with their feet under water, seawater swim with their feet neatly held in the air & out of the salt—also carry their babies on their tummies). But the game is on: If the script is even half as good as some of you have said, this is going to be a film with a high kleenex count. Can’t wait for the latest metamorphosis in the life of BC.
