Benedict Cumberbatch has a new ‘Sherlock’ teaser: curls, cheekbones, heaven!


CUMBERBABIES: I have a case of them.

The Cumberwithdrawal was so intense last week. I’ve been jonesing for a good, hard, gigantic, epic dose of Benedict Cumberbatch for weeks now. Was it nice to see him at the BAFTA thing a few weeks ago? Of course it was. But I NEED MORE. I need a good Batching every day. But it’s not going to happen, I guess. Still, it’s a good weekend for me because the BBC released a new teaser trailer for Sherlock Season 3. #SherlockLives!!!!!!

Watch it again. Is Sherlock part of that group of hipsters with their phones blowing up with hashtags? Over there in the right corner of the screen? I think that’s him. Epic. SHERLOCK IS EVERYWHERE. LONG LIVE SHERLOCK.

God, they really need to put me out of my misery and just release (at least!) a full-length trailer. I get so giddy when a new image or teaser comes out, so I guess someone is doing their job, but I feel like the BBC is a Batch-tease. I don’t want the tip. PUT IT ALL IN.

As you can see, the BBC also released two new “behind the scenes” photos from Season 3 as well. Ah, the Cumbercheekbones. Gimme.

    He is a good actor but I do not get the hype. He is ugly to me.

  2. Trinitay4u says:

    Ugly or not. Sherlock is one of the best BBC shows out right now….hands down. Sorry Downton Abbey

  3. lower-case deb says:

    oh Martin Freeman… that face.
    i just want to hug him.

  4. T.Fanty says:

    HUZZAH!!! I have been craving this. TommyAnne’s nipples can only take me so far. CHEEKBONES!! Watson’s mustache of mourning! The purple shirt of sex! Life is good again.

    Let’s celebrate with the only gif that matters:

  5. j.eyre says:

    Ah, yay. I may not be a member of the Collective but I am a Sherly a Lockette.

  6. Maureen says:

    I thought I needed more, too. But you know what? During that dry spell I realized I’m a little bit tired of him. He’s definitely over-exposed. I saw photos of him in New York from last week and I sort of felt nothing. I am, however, anxious to see him in another movie. I might go see 12 Years this weekend.

  7. Maureen says:

    I see the person Kaiser’s referring to, over on the right in the chair. I don’t think it’s him. The body is too small. But maybe!

    • LadySlippers says:

      I thought the body was too wide to be thin Sherlock. But that would be funny if it is him!

      Lol I love how we get different answers. You think he’s too small and I think he’s too wide! ;-)

      • Maureen says:

        That is wild! Are we looking at the same person? He’s to your screen right. There’s the sofa in the center and then off to your right is a separate chair. The person in that chair. Legs are crossed I think? Anyway, it’s funny how everything becomes a potential clue now!

      • LadySlippers says:

        Maybe not… I’ll look again. So you think it might be the guy in the left NOT the one on the right in the too obvious deerstalker?!???

        Wouldn’t the hipsters recognise him in that small space???

        ETA: Were you talking about the guy on the floor in chucks? I don’t think it’s either. Face/profile is wrong with guy on the floor and guy in right corner is definitely wrong build.

        Conclusion: I have too much time on my hands…

    • O'Angie says:

      I am confused. I don’t know which person we’re talking about because I see two in similar outfits. The first, by the cupboard in the blue scarf and darker jeans, has the Cumby thighs and hands. However, that person seems too small; but then I could totally see Cumby folding into himself to give that illusion. But then when the texts appear they show someone next to the couch in lighter jeans that has the cheek bones and a larger build. But .. no scarf, can’t be Sherlock. And now I’ve realized I’ve spent way too much time analyzing a 30 second teaser.

  8. GeeMoney says:

    Love him! Can’t wait for the new season of Sherlock.

    Thanks for the post, Kaiser. You’ve made my day.

  9. Falula says:

    Watson! I die. I think they’re both great in the show but I’m such a Watson fangirl.

  10. Vera says:

    Just coming out of my Doctor Who 50th Anniversary meltdown haze. I really wish that the BBC would make Sherlock a global event like Doctor Who, so that those outside of the UK wouldn’t have to wait and not cut it like PBS does.

    I don’t think Cumberbatch (like Hiddleston) is the the best looking either, but there’s just something about him; I love tall skinny guys and I’m all about those cheekbones, feline eyes, and CUMBERCURLS. Besides, he’s an excellent actor to boot.

  11. Miss B. says:

    I do think he suits longer hair.. Although I’m not one for longer hair on a guy hmmmm

  12. Katie says:

    Come on, BBC, give us an airdate!

    Seriously excited for this. It’s funny, I don’t care so much how Sherlock pulled it off as I want to see their reunion.

  13. Bee says:

    For those that are saying “I don’t get the hype – he’s not that cute”, for me, BC is one of those people that has a sense of humor, wit, intelligence, and talent that make up for unconventional looks. That being said, Sherlock Series 3 is coming!!!! *squeeeeeee*

  14. Felice says:

    I’m extremely interested in how they wrote the Sherlockians in the episode

  15. allons-y alonso says:

    I’m still on my post ‘Day Of The Doctor’ high (ammmmmaaaazzzzinggg!!!), and then THIS appears! My whole week is made.

  16. epiphany says:

    ‘Curls, cheekbones, heaven!’
    How about lizard eyes, waxy skin, chinless?

  17. Jenn says:

    The closest you’re going to get for a while is Cumberbatch as a giant firebreathing lizard and his sidekick as a hobbit in December. “Meddle not in the affairs of dragons for you art crunchy and taste good with ketchup.” now sounds vaguely flirtateous.

  18. Abby says:

    Yayyy Monday morning made with a Cumby post :)

    I cannot wait for Sherlock…I laughed do hard at Anderson’s beard lol. I need the episodes ASAP…..gahhhhhh *watches teaser repeatedly.

    All these hateful comments here have made me a little sad though….sigh

  19. yoon says:

    That’s not Sherlock on the corner, I think it’s just a “die hard fan” in costume/cosplay. I don’t think Sherlock would ever wear ladies converse.

    Also, was that Anderson? Anyone?

    I just had to say I love this line: “…BBC is a Batch-tease. I don’t want the tip. PUT IT ALL IN.” Awesome!
