Benedict Cumberbatch re-films Sherlock’s fall (spoilers!!)


This post contains some SPOILERS for Season 2 of Sherlock and perhaps some SPOILERS for Season 3, which is currently filming. SPOILER. BEWARE. Do not say I didn’t warn you.

Yes, these are photos of Benedict Cumberbatch filming Sherlock in London yesterday (Saturday). For all of us who watched Season 2, Episode 3 (“The Reichenbach Fall”), we know exactly what we are looking at. We are looking at Benedict – as Sherlock – filming his jump/fall off of hospital roof. Or, re-filming it to explain exactly what happened and how he fooled everyone. They seem to be shooting this scene in a variety of ways – at one point, Benedict is jumping from a short distance without any harness or wires, onto a fluffy, air-filled something or other. In other photos, Benedict is wearing a helmet with a camera, which I suppose will be used to show Sherlock’s perspective as he falls. In others, Benedict is wearing a harness and wires and I would imagine that’s where he’s jumping from the full height of the building.

There were some other photos which I’m not including. There were some of Sherlock’s stunt double, who looks nothing like him and honestly the guy could have just been Benedict’s stunt coordinator. Mark Gatiss, who plays Sherlock’s brother Mycroft (and Gatiss is a writer/producer of the show too), was wandering around the set in what seemed like his character’s clothing. So, was Mycroft in on it? Maybe. I did not see any photos of Molly Hooper (Louise Brealey), and I’m sure Molly was in on it.

I’m saying this is a spoiler because I think these photos eliminate the possibility (the slim possibility) that Sherlock was not the jumper, that he chucked some look-alike off the roof or whatever. Clearly, Sherlock DID FALL. So how did he survive the fall? By the way, am I the only one in love with the photos of Benedict in mid-air? I want to imagine him jumping into bed (on top of me) that way. I especially love the one with the umbrella.

    Ha! dream on…

    I can’t wait to find out how Sherlock fooled everyone!

      “Benedict is jumping from a short distance without any harness or wires, onto a fluffy, air-filled something or other.” – or was it one of you ladies standing with your arms open?

      • EscapedConvent says:

        I don’t mind being called a fluffy, air-filled something or other at all.

        I’m going to get the bicycle pump for my bustle—be back in two shakes.

      • T.Fanty says:

        Are we back to why you can’t fit on the Vespa again? I’ve got a call in to Jaguar, to ask if they can make a custom moped, but they’re taking their sweet time.

      • Mairead says:

        Amend it to “overstuffed and hot-air filled” and that’s a pretty accurate description of me 😆

    • Crumpets and Crotchshots says:

      I love the umbrella. I would love to be a stunt performer– this looks like great fun!

      • EscapedConvent says:

        Sherlock looks like it would be so much fun to work on. I will take the hair, makeup or costumes gig. Or all three.

        In looking at the fourth pic, I am struck by a sudden urge to *caption this!*: “Oh, for God’s sake, when will these bitches get their hands off my @#$%ing hair?”

      • Lauli says:

        I love the umbrella too, very Mary Poppins.

    • marie says:

      Speaking of dreams, I had one about him the other night. He was Lord of The Legion of Lizards, and he wanted world domination. Sadly, I looked to my weapon and realized I’d brought a bat to a sword fight..

      • j.eyre says:

        Is that where my bat got off to? I hope he wasn’t too much trouble – he loves to flap his wings…

        Oh wait, what kind of bat?

      • marie says:

        @ j.eyre.. One I realized that your bat would not magically turn into Batman and save me I fed him and sent him on his way home. The constant flapping was becoming distracting.

      • EscapedConvent says:

        Lord of The Legion of Lizards? What a great idea! Someone, pitch this thing!

      • T.Fanty says:

        I thought that was the Star Trek movie. Lord of the Leigon of the Lizards in Leather. And Zachary Quinto.

  2. Amelia says:

    Haha! He’s like a male Mary Poppins in the last photo!
    Except, you know. He doesn’t have an enchanted umbrella and he’s the most loveable alien in the Solar System.
    Ahh, those cheekbones.
    Also; am I the only one who thinks that looks quite fun?

    • T.Fanty says:

      Have you seen the DM pics? He looks like a total princess watching the stunt guy go down (and I mean that in the nicest possible way).

      • Suze says:

        Heh – he and I have something in common.

      • Amelia says:

        Yeah, I was enjoying a lot of the conspiracy theories and ‘solutions’ in the comments section!
        Cumby’s such an elegant faller, you lucky girl. Make sure he doesn’t bash himself up before Star Trek promo starts.
        Speaking of which, ever since you mentioned it, I can’t un-see the Kenneth Williams in some of the posters.
        Oh my God, I’d give anything to hear Cumby do an impression of him.
        “Stop messin’ abaaaaaht!”

      • T.Fanty says:

        I would possibly give him my children just to hear him say “ooooh, matron!”

      • T.Fanty says:

        And for those uninitiated in the glory of the late Mr. Williams:

      • EscapedConvent says:

        I just saw the Daily Mail pics. Incredibly, this is the first time it’s ever occurred to me that I would love to watch this film set.

        *Hides face under matching Cumbgy scarf* Oh God, I would be one of those gawking girls on the street.

      • EscapedConvent says:

        Cumby already has his eye on your Ginger baby, Fanty. You may need to secure the Fantlings in the bouncy castle!

        Note: Hmmm…I just noticed how many typos I’ve made today. Up too late again, with harness practice….

      • T.Fanty says:

        On the upside, yours would be the only tumblr that featured Cumby being molested by a woman of the cloth.

        And, as I was saying to Miss Eyre on twitter (*ahem*), some days I think that the prospect of Cumby running away with the Fantlings is what makes him *so* irresistible. I need sleep.

      • j.eyre says:

        @EsCon – I would like to add an emphatic *ahem* to T Fan’s *ahem*. No reason we need to contain our nonsense to Cumberbatch posts.

      • EscapedConvent says:

        Fanty: Uh-oh, you’re right! I would never forgive myself if some other nun beat me to it. Since he wore a Reverend’s collar for a scene in “Belgravia” (right before that hussy dominatrix put her boobs in his face, poor darling) I’m sure I can’t be the only recovering nun who has set her cap *correction* wimple for Cumby.

        j.eyre: I’m trying to decide on a name. Don’t know if I should use my Sister of Perpetual Purgatory name—I think I need a new one. I have sort of disgraced my former Convent enough, I suppose.

      • T.Fanty says:

        Is it I appropriate that I find Cumby in the priest outfit just as hot as the purple shirt of sex? (Which is totally misnamed by the way, because isn’t Sherlock asexual?)

    • andrea says:

      Yes, it does look like fun! It’s like bungee jumping Mission Impossible style.

    • V4Real says:

      One thing I can say about Cumby is that he can give you eargasms with that voice. I can say this without fear of Eve shanking me because I told her I’m not planting the flag on her territory but I love his voice

  3. T.Fanty says:

    We call that Tuesday night. After a couple of cocktails, there’s nothing more that he loves than to be strapped up in that thing. I can’t believe he took our private harness to work. *So* embarrassing.

    • j.eyre says:

      Oh, what happened to the fuzzy pink one, did it finally break? The black harness seems much sturdier.

      • T.Fanty says:

        Yes, but it’s a little rough around his delicates, which, while he doesn’t entirely dislike, causes a little chafing. He asked me if you would mind knitting some fluffy covers for them, emblazoned with images of hedgehogs riding Vespas.

      • TheyPromisedMeBeer says:

        @Fanty: I know how Cumby likes to stick to his Englishness, but have you considered switching from an English harness to a Western harness? So much easier on the spurs and lasso because it’s meant for the long haul, if you catch my drift.

        But I would like to see those fuzzy knit harness covers if you ever make them.

      • j.eyre says:

        Oh PromisedBeer – spurs on a Sunday morning? Darn it, I knew I untied CHemboy too soon. Now who had that butterfly net last?

    • ncboudicca says:

      …but what you don’t know is that he has a pair of my panties in his coat pocket for “good luck”

      • T.Fanty says:

        Oh, those were yours? He confessed to me “under duress” that they were there. I usually just stuff them in his mouth when I tire of his snarky comments about my knot-tying skills.

      • ncboudicca says:

        @T.Fanty Oh good, I really get so tired of him calling them “pantalettes” or “unmentionables”. He’s so prissy sometimes, I’m glad somebody slaps him around a little bit. Saves me time, as I only get 45 min a week with the guy, he’s already so booked up with other women…

      • EscapedConvent says:

        Yes, he can be very prissy about the underthings. He’s still calling mine “bloomers.” How Tietjens.

        He looks pale & knackered here. I’m worried that we, his harem, may be wearing him out. The bitch-visiting rotation, the long hours of filming—I think he just fell off that roof having a dizzy spell.

      • j.eyre says:

        Oh, ncboudicca! Congratulations, when did you get an additional 15 minutes? Well done.

    • andrea says:

      So that’s what you do with him on Tuesdays? No wonder he’s still got chafe marks when he comes around for the weekend. Ugh, some consideration please!

      • T.Fanty says:

        My most sincere apologies. Clearly, EsCon has been slacking off with her Wednesday night lotion duties. I’ll send her a memo.

      • j.eyre says:

        I am not trying to start anything, but Cumby sure likes to see me sweat. Yes, I will get to the covers.

        EsCon cannot be blamed. She is trying some new Eco-friendly, dolphin-saving balm she concocted from the materials found on the forest floor. It’s just that EsCon is a nun and has no idea what she is doing re: balms.

      • andrea says:

        Perhaps I should send EsCon an e-book on that. And just to think, I always send him back lotioned/oiled, mani-pedi’d, shampooed AND conditioned (mainly for EsCon’s benefit), to perfection.

      • EscapedConvent says:

        I guess this would be an awkward time to mention that I was a balm dispensary apprentice under Brother Cadfael (Derek Jacobi). I wasn’t very good at it, & it was several years ago, in 1138 A.D.

        I am mortified at causing any flakiness to Cumby’s skin. Please excuse me—I have penance to do.

      • EscapedConvent says:

        Andrea, I replied to this earlier, but I think it got lost:

        And I appreciate it, Andrea. I thank you for never having to say “Have him washed, polished & brought to my tent.”

    • Crumpets and Crotchshots says:

      I like the harness that had the little pink enameled valentines dangling off it.

      • EscapedConvent says:

        Crumpets, Miss Eyre sewed every one of those little hearts onto that harness, with her own delicate hands.

      • T.Fanty says:

        Oh, I haven’t seen that one since TommyAnna allowed a fan, cunningly dressed in a fake moustache and glasses, to talk him into strapping himself in – for the children, you know. I think he’s probably still there.

      • j.eyre says:

        Thank you for your kind words on my work. I really needed this boost, this morning – we just did another fitting for CHemboy’s last night and it still doesn’t fit over his arms. I was so frustrated, I was barely able to tear his pants off with my teeth.

      • T.Fanty says:

        Was it racing-car themed?

      • j.eyre says:

        T Fan – how else to get him revved up? And I am positively knackered from decorating the North drawing room to look like the cabin of a private plane.

        Mr R is still sick and took to bed early last night and I accidentally watched Thor again. You can imagine where my mind went when Thor yells “at least make it a challenge for me!”

        Oh CHemboy, you’ll get your wish…

      • T.Fanty says:

        You see, when Cumby asks me to make it a challenge for him, it means put heels on, harness him up and force him to recite scientific theorem to me. He gets quite hot and bothered when I correct his understanding of quantum entanglement. Every time he makes a mistake, I slowly unpick the knit on one of his sweaters.

      • j.eyre says:

        You do what?!? Do you know how long it takes me to knit that sweater? And your Mr. Cumby likes me to use only the finest alpaca from underneath its left flank – he is so persnickety! Honest to Christmas, did you not read through the entire Sexual Torture handbook I got you? Surely you could find something that does not cut into my Special Time with my boys!

      • T.Fanty says:

        Dagnabbit. THAT’S why he asked me to keep our own little Cumber-games a secret. I suppose that means I’ll be back in the harness next week, for one of his “special lectures.”

      • j.eyre says:

        And I, in a most fantastic twist, am off to go teach Sunday School. Seriously, I am about to sit in a church classroom and teach Third Sunday of Easter lessons to little jaded minds while thinking of race-car themed harnesses and EsCon climbing on Cumby’s back in a tattered habit and cape and TommyAnna in various costumes… lord only knows what these kids will come away with today. Thank God I am an Episcopalian, we’re known to blur the lines a bit.

      • Miss M says:

        @T.Fanty: What games? The Cumber games- Batching fire?

        @j.eyre: I did not read this book… Do you have an extra copy? Or just T.Fanty ‘s exclusive reading? 🙂 If so, can I please have T.Fanty? I think I need some advising, especially after following the Butler on twitter…

      • T.Fanty says:

        Yeah, I’m still side-eying you for that. Apparently, you *can* spend too many hours in a lab…

      • j.eyre says:

        “Miss Erye, may I see you for a moment?”

        “Yes Reverend, what is it?”

        “Miss Eyre, we do embrace the ecumenical philosophy and highly promote many religions at this church, but I think Norse mythology is stretching the boundaries a bit.”

        “I think that is a little closed-minded, Reverend.”

        “Take the Thor and Loki posters down, Miss Eyre. And although we fully recognize voodoo as a valid religion, I am not sure the dolls are an appropriate craft for the lesson of Simon Peter. Who is Remora anyway?”

        “I am going to need that hair back, Reverend.”

        “I do not intend to ask about the harness, Miss Eyre.”

        “That is for the best, Reverend.”

        “One last thing, Miss Eyre. This EscapedConvent you recommended for our little Sunday School roster here – we need to discuss that… “

      • EscapedConvent says:

        Oh my giddy Aunt. I am hysterical! If Sherlock needs any plot lines or arcs for fourth season, they need only to look here.

        Miss Eyre,

        Your conversation with the Reverend makes me yearn for another way of life. This is how I always dreamed it would be in the Episcopalian world. When the Reverend needs to scold or mention something to you as a naughty girl, you have civilized conversations like this.

        In the Convent, Mother Superior makes it perfectly clear that everything is forbidden, you do it anyway, & then are consigned to the flames of hell.

        I am going to be laughing at this for the rest of the day.

      • j.eyre says:

        And we have cake.

        btw – two things 1) I completely heard Emily Blunt’s (Gnomeo and Juliet) voice when you said “oh my giddy aunt” and now that is the image I hold of you – Emily Blunt as a garden gnome… in a habit and cape.

        2) GiddyAunt sounds like a wonderful twitter name… just sayin’

      • T.Fanty says:

        GiddyAunt is great. My grandma used to say that all. the. time. That, and “Gordon Bennett!” Not entirely sure why.

      • EscapedConvent says:

        @Fanty & Miss Eyre:

        I got that expression from Paul Bettany’s Geoffrey Chaucer in “A Knight’s Tale.” I’m so glad you got a kick out of it.

        Before I forget, “A Knight’s Tale” has caused me to shriek this expression again, as I thought of Heath Ledger, (my true love before Cumby, for whom I still mourn) Paul Bettany & James Purefoy all being in the same movie.

        Fanty, in what situations would your Grandma use this expression? I’m curious.

        Jane, I would be thrilled to be Emily Blunt as Juliet. I am only as tall as a garden Gnome, although you had no way of knowing. However, this consideration of a new name & new identity has confused me more than my last set of little Russian nesting dolls. Who am I?

        All right, GiddyAunt will go on the list of Names For Consideration. 😉

  4. Al says:

    I can’t wait for new Sherlock! I definitely need to rewatch the first six before it starts.

    If they’re filming now, when are they expected to air?

    • Agnes says:

      In UK maybe around Christmas

    • ya says:

      I know…………………. I really hope they air soon – I am so excited about new eps!!!! I just got into watching Sherlock last fall, so I haven’t been waiting long, but I couldn’t believe it when we reached the cliffhanger!

  5. MyLittlePony says:

    Cumby looks just soooo delicious when in character.

    • Eve says:


      By the way, the second one is my current desktop background.

      But this one had me drooling for a while (although it looks like he’s holding a leaf blower):

      Thighs…look at those thighs. Wait! No, don’t look, do not look!!!

      • Agnes says:

        That’s my desktop background actually.
        These leather pants… Mmmm 😀

      • I Choose Me says:

        *commences buttering up* Oh Hai Eve. Was about to send the shanking signal. You know it ain’t a proper Cumby thread without you m’dear. *finishes buttering up* 😀

      • EscapedConvent says:

        How does such a skinny boy have such great legs? I’m surprised he’s so muscular. Eve, I trust you have seen him in his Beach “Bird” Board shorts. Those pics were taken when he was filming Star Trek in LA, & he was sunburned & pink as a cupcake.

      • Eve says:

        @ EsCon:

        Of course I have! Do you think his voice is the sole responsible for cumberbatching me?

        I remember posting the link (here) to one of those pictures and saying that I LOVED his body.

        @ I Choose Me:

        Please. My shank-ey sense always tingles whenever Cumberbatch is posted.

    • ya says:

      ya – I am a star trek fan, but really can’t get excited about the new movie for some reason.

  6. insomniac says:

    Ha, I hadn’t seen the one of him in mid-air with the umbrella before. That’s hilarious.

    And Molly was *totally* in on it …

  7. Suze says:

    Heh, can’t believe I caught this thread before the Cumberbitches mark their territory.

    Honestly, this is too exciting. I’m such a Sherlock nerd.

    (And I only really lust after the Batch when he’s in Sherlock mode.)

  8. dina says:

    I find him incredibly bland and unattractive.

  9. Tish says:

    Love, love that intense look on him!

    And have you seen the STiD promo pics? He looks absolutely delish in the domestic banner… my god. Plus, he apparently wears leather pants in the movie.

    • EscapedConvent says:

      Cumby Leather? *head spins wildly*

      I saw a new pic of him in leather pants, holding what seemed to be an enormous alien dust buster.

      • T.Fanty says:

        We call that “Thursday Night.” I make him dress up in leather and clean my house.

      • EscapedConvent says:

        So *that* explains the state I found him in last Friday. Fanty, are you keeping to the regular feeding schedule we discussed, after he cleans the house?

        I’ve just decided I’m going to lighten up the household chores during filming.

      • Amelia says:

        T.Fanty, exactly how many nights a week do you get with him? I know you’ve been under the weather and have needed some extra Cumby recovery time, but I’m starting to think the rota could do with a shake up.
        Like Escon said, we don’t want to wear him out (too much).
        He’s got an Oscar to collect in 10 months time and it just won’t do if he falls asleep in his seat.

      • T.Fanty says:

        You know, this week, I put TommyAnna in his best french maid’s outfit and let him organize the menu. That explains it.

        Once more, my apologies. I’ll give him a night off this week and send him to Thornfield to plump up a little.

      • andrea says:

        Haha, the “leather” got my attention as well. Whiplash?

        Wait, a bit off tangent, I replied to you in the previous Cumby post about how we might find the nosy neighbor but I think my reply got eaten or something. Anyhow, it can’t be that difficult (what with the webloids providing convenient pics of his street). But of course that would put us directly in the center of stalker territory.

      • T.Fanty says:

        Amelia – shake-ups are our Saturday specialty, involving dangling the harness from our weekend suite at Thornfield and Cumby shouting “GERONIMO!” at the top of his lungs (which he assures me, has nothing to do with Matt Smith).

        Sorry – got a little distracted there. Stop pointing that antique crossbow at me. So, scheduling…

      • Amelia says:

        I think it’s going to be a rather tight schedule with all the sudden Cumby love. The crossbow has a hair trigger, so no funny business . . .
        I can do you a good deal on a Scandinavian whaling harpoon if either Cumby or CHemboy has any use for it.

  10. andrea says:

    Oooh, I’ve suspected that Mycroft was involved somehow. I know he’s supposed to be the stoic sort, but his reaction to Sherlock’s death seemed too, um, neutral, I guess? I think I’m going to go rewatch the episode now.

    Also, LOL on the umbrella. Can’t get the famous Sher-locks wet!

    • j.eyre says:

      I love Mycroft – oh, I hope he is all over this.

      In the stories, Moriarty is “resurrected” as well. Can’t wait to see Mr. Scott play that one out.

      • andrea says:

        I love Mycroft as well! I think you can only have a Sherlock, who goes off and does his own thing in his own deviant way, because you have a Mycroft, who holds down the fort and basically keeps the world spinning.

      • jen d. says:

        Moriarty isn’t resurrected in the stories… He’s not even that big a character in the canon – more of a plot device to kill off Sherlock. Although I did enjoy him on the show and I wouldn’t mind if they did bring him back.

      • EscapedConvent says:

        Does anyone else wish that they would find a role for Hugh Laurie in this show?

    • Mairead says:

      Gatiss is the greatest 😀

  11. Jenna says:

    I don’t know why, but as soon as you brought up the possibility of Sherlock using someone that looked like him to jump, all I could picture was Sherlock being the sassy bitch that he is and pushing off said look-a-like off the roof. And now I can’t stop laughing.
    I can’t wait for the new season! 😀

    P.S. If Eve comes on here today, she’s going to have to shank the lot of ya! Hussies!

    • j.eyre says:

      I am just knitting today, maybe lending a little moral support with a well-placed “atta girl” here or there.

      I am saving my energy for the MTV awards posts tomorrow.

      • Jenna says:

        I’ll shank if Eve needs me to. Otherwise I’m still lusty over my new hubby. Mmm…Urban. *le sigh*

      • T.Fanty says:

        Assuming Cumby doesn’t get filmed whipping off a scarf today, I offer my loyalty (and bayonet) in your service tomorrow.

      • j.eyre says:

        I need to check your Mr. Out.

        Wait, he was all muddied up in a link Eve posted, yes? Yes, that is worth all your energy.

        When did I start getting all worked up over dirtied men? Thornfield is filthy as a result!

      • T.Fanty says:

        TommyAnna still has his french maid outfit on. I can send him over…

      • j.eyre says:

        @Jenna – iPhone capitalized “out” on that response, I was not trying to imply anything.

        @TFan – you send TommyAnna over in that French Maid outfit and it would only add to the problem. Don’t think your Prince-Hal-Upon-Slaying-Hotspur is excluded from that dirtied up men list.

      • Jenna says:

        @j.eyre: LOL I got all confused there. I was all: ‘Who the hell is Mr. Out?’. lol But yeah, stay away from my new hubby. -_-

      • Eve says:

        Me? Shanking everybody? I’m rather peaceful today…

        *reaches button to launch missiles*

        Hmmm…should I push it or not? Tricky question, you see.

  12. TheyPromisedMeBeer says:

    What is this fluttering in my chest? Is it … is it … is it … oh, it’s jealousy because what he gets to do for a living is infinitely more interesting that what I get to do at work today. If I came in to work through the ceiling on a harness, the Health Department and ambulance chasers would be on me like white on rice.

    (but really, I wanna get to try that!!)

    Dear ladies; I saw Sherlock only yesterday (have seen it before but I never managed to watch an entire episode, but yesterday I finally got around to it) and I completely understand your obsession and fully support it. I am more of an acting skills fan and that voice (!)… Wouldn’t really hit it (more of a Viking bitch myself) but carry on; I totally cheer for all of you! So much fun with this guy around!

    • EscapedConvent says:

      Uh-oh. There are several fierce Viking bitches here!

      Do you have your helmet & shield ready?!

      With the exception of Eve, the Viking Celebitches make the polite, tea-sipping Cumberbitches look like a cloud of….hummingbirds. 😉

    “By the way, am I the only one in love with the photos of Benedict in mid-air? I want to imagine him jumping into bed (on top of me) that way.”

    I would say that I had a similar thought, but so many people around here have already laid claim to him that I don’t want to get shanked. *hides*

  15. Miss M says:

    @T.Fanty, EsCon, j. eyre et al: You ladies, enjoy the ride (or the jump?!) while you can because when Eve comes in … I don’t even want to tell you know how much CSI work I will have to put myself into (Collecting shanks, analyzing blood splatters patterns, DNA analysis, etc).

    Back to my E.coli transformation. See you!

    • EscapedConvent says:

      Miss M,

      Oh, I didn’t think of all the extra work ~EVE~ would be making for you by shanking so many of Cumby’s adoring babes.

      You & Molly Hooper are going to be worked to a frazzle….

    • Miss M says:

      @EsCon: I just saw Eve’s peaceful plans: launching a missile. That will be way hard…I may be able to analyze the mitochondrial DNA of the victims, 😮

  16. SusieQ2 says:

    I so enjoy the Sherlock/Cumberbatch posts because I really do laugh out loud at all the comments!

    You ladies are just awesome so carry on!!!!

    Love the umbrella pic!

    Totally OT, but did anyone else see that Matt & Luciana renewed their vows yesterday? Trouble in paradise? I hope not!

    • j.eyre says:

      Good Morning OBella! I have not “seen” you in some time. Hope all is well.

      No, I did not see that yesterday. I, too, hope this was just an excuse for a party. Was it beautiful?

      • the original bellaluna says:

        Hi j.! I’ve had some stuff goin’ on, but it’s getting better. How have you been?

        I guess it was on Santa Lucia, and E! has some of the info. I’m sure it was gorgeous, but I don’t want it to lead to an “amicable divorce” announcement. That would make me sad.

      • j.eyre says:

        I am so glad to hear things are improving. You are all so good about keeping your spirits up – I am glad your outlook is matching that.

        We have missed you and your ever-important “This Tall to Ride” measuring stick. i am a afraid some unworthies made it on the H!t L!sts as we had no idea how tall they were.

        I am well, thank you for asking.

      • the original bellaluna says:

        j. – So funny you mentioned my “Must Be This Tall to Ride” because I mentioned it on the Coachella/ASkars post! 😀

    So intense… le sigh

  19. Susie Q says:

    I just cannot see the attraction to this guy. I have never seen him in any movies so I’m going with the fact that he must turn into something completely different when he opens his mouth.

    • GeeMoney says:

      Yeah… it’s his personality and talent that make him attractive. I didn’t think much of him when I first looked at him until he started talking… he seems like a really awesome, smart guy. And he’s a good actor, too.

      I love this man.

  20. helen says:

    The stunt man did some falling forward shots which arent as hard as Benedict twist and backwards fall. That really confused me. Why give cumberbatch the harder falls. I was well annoyed with the mirror for lying and saying he didnt do any stunts when there are a million shots of him doing stunts all day. Thats not just blatant shafting thats downright stupid journalism.

  21. Reece says:

    Love the umbrella pic too!

  22. FYInformation says:

    Molly Hooper was there. In some of the pics where you can see the building in the background while Benedict is hanging there you can see her in one of the windows.

  23. Dredz says:

    He’s the one who should be playing Richard Ramirez in the next biopic, not James Franco. Bene got that serial killer look down pat.

    • EscapedConvent says:

      Hmmm….I seem to recall Richard Ramirez having very sharp cheekbones. Mayber if Cumby turns the collar up on that orange jumpsuit….

      There are several people here that think Cumby looks like, is, or is about to be a serial killer!

  24. GeeMoney says:

    The pic of him suspended on wires with the umbrella is really cute.

  25. Anna says:

    Such good timing for this story – watched the entire series so far this weekend for the first time!

  26. chloe says:

    where is my MOLLY hooper?

  27. Dani says:

    ‘How does no one wonder how he still has a full head of hair?’ THAT is what my husband asked me the other night while I was watching the last episode of last season. I’m just like…why are you here? He does have really good hair though.
