Benedict Cumberbatch films more ‘Sherlock’ scenes including a wedding scene…?

Here are some photos of Benedict Cumberbatch in Bristol, England on Monday, where he was preparing to shoot some scenes for Sherlock. I’ve been able to see some SPOILER-tastic images and I hope this won’t be too much of a spoiler, but apparently a wedding is being filmed for the new season. And to soothe your worried souls, I will say that I seriously doubt Sherlock Holmes is the one getting married. The original character never married, and the writers of the UK Sherlock are such fans of Arthur Conan Doyle’s work that I doubt they would ever deviate that much from the original character. Sherlock will always be a bachelor! But if you don’t mind some spoilers, go here to see some more photos.

This weekend, Benedict will appear on the Graham Norton show and OMG, it would be SO good. Chris Pine is allegedly coming along too, so it will be a good chance to see if they have much chemistry together. In the early cast interviews, it sounds like everybody got along and that the old cast loved their new villain (Cumby). As for early reviews… I can’t believe this movie is already getting reviewed! It doesn’t come out for another three and a half weeks! And JJ Abrams is such a stickler for his secrets! That’s okay. The early reviews I’ve seen seem to be cautious not to spoil anything. You can read some gushing about Cumby’s performance here and here.

Would you like to hear his voice? Of course you would!!!

    There are pictures floating around of him in a morning suit. He looks SO good, and I wonder how many tumblr girls are now photographing themselves in white dresses to photoshop themselves in.

  2. Jenna says:

    I’m guessing it’s Watson, then? Can’t wait for STID (*giggle-snort*) to come out. 😛

  3. binturong says:

    He’s so incredibly well-spoken. And “a weapon of mass destruction”…no sh!t!

  4. andrea says:

    Oooh, I’m hoping Graham has something fun for Cumby and the other guests to do. One of my favorite shows was the one where he had Tarantino direct James McAvoy and Alan Davies in a scene from Macbeth.

    • T.Fanty says:

      Really? I haven’t seen that. It sounds fabulous!

      • andrea says:

        It’s on YouTube! Here’s the full show if you have 40+ minutes:

        It’s a bit crass, but well, that’s Tarantino. Bonus: Emeli Sande is the musical guest.

      • Eve says:

        @ T.Fanty:

        I’m looking forward to watching Cumberbatch on Graham Norton’s show.

        His interaction with guests never looks forced, and people seem to loosen up a bit (or a lot) when they’re being interviewed by him. Will have to wait until someone posts it online, but that’s ok.

        My favourite Norton/guest moment? By far, this one:

      • j.eyre says:

        Oh you must watch it – it’s a great show. Especially when The Mac says he will agree to blow Tarantino for a job.

    • Amelia says:

      That was hilarious, Alan looked so startled in places!
      Alright, Graham – I doubt you’re reading this but if by some miracle you are, I have a request; get the vodka and tequila shots out early, would you?
      I really want to see Cumby hammered a la Goop and Mark Whalberg.

      • andrea says:

        Haha, I felt kind of bad for Fassbender in that episode. Mark pretty much bogarted the show. The only thing I remember from Fassy is the sound effects bit.

    So angry that Star Trek Into Darkness opens almost a month ealier in the US (here in Brazil it opens only on June 14).

    • Marty says:

      Maybe you’ll get lucky and someone will post a bootleg copy online? Then you can see him in all his big screen version a month later!

      • Eve says:

        Trust me, there’ll be bootlegs copies available at those vendors’ stands within a week here (I live in Brazil) but they’re usually awful.

        And I can wait a month, come on. I’m just angry that I’ll have to wait — it’s not a personal choice. For instance, Iron Man 3 is opening in two days here (April 26), but I haven’t deided yet if I’m going to watch on opening day or a week later (like you guys).

      • Marty says:

        Will you be sitting in the front row? Occasionally running up to the screen to lick it? 😉 lol

      • Eve says:

        Nah…but I may need someone to go with me to stop me from taking my clothes off mid-screening! o_O

      • Anna says:


        I would totally go, but then again I might actually encourage you 🙂

        Btw, in Russia it’s titled ST: Retribution. Thought you might now for trivia sake

        PS – read the Portman thread. Hooooly mother…

      • T.Fanty says:


        Someone put a Cumby STiD poster on the phone box about twelve feet from the front door of my apartment building. I want to lick it every time I go out. Figure my kids won’t entirely appreciate it, though.

      • Eve says:

        @ T.Fanty:

        But I’d love to watch the awkward scene: you licking the poster while your kids slowly walk backwards, horrified :).

      • Eve says:

        @ Anna:

        Yup, that thread happened. I may sound (extra) bitchy on it, but in my defense (I say that a lot, don’t I?) I was being attacked left and right by people who kept twisting my words.

        Anyway, now you know I feel about The Portman.

        P.S.: STiD’s Brazilian title is “Star Trek Beyond Darkness”, which is ok…I guess. Most of the times the titles and subtitles sound downright crazy or annoyingly repetitive here (there are at least three American movies with the title “The Last Night” here).

  6. T.Fanty says:

    Just looked on tumblr: there’s a johnlock breakdown of Hiddlestoner proportions.

  7. Roberta says:

    That Graham Norton appearance won’t be broadcast til the 3rd May though (the London premiere for ST is on the 2nd), and the UK release is the 9th.

  8. kristine says:

    Creeper looking creepy as always

  9. Mia 4S says:

    I imagine Graham Norton will know about the random road trip Pine, Quinto, Pegg, and Cumberbatch took during filming where they ended up in a San Francisco Hooters watching boxing. The Tweets were hilarious so I’d love to hear how that came about.

  10. Lucretia says:

    Another set of similar-looking Cumberbatch pictures, another dull non-story. Yes, it’s another day.

  11. Atlanta says:

    Is this site getting paid by Benedict Cumberbatch’s management?

    • Anna says:

      Cumber, Hemsworth, Tom Hardy, Fassbender, and occasional Hiddlestone

      • Hanna says:

        Seriously its always the same men. And then we get kimye and the robsten mess. Are these the only people there is too talk about? Too much of the same thing lately. Its getting boring to come here.

      • Marty says:

        @Anna- Yes! Let it always be that way! Give or take a Fassbender or Hiddleston. Sorry Kaiser!

      • Anna says:


        Oh yeah, I dont care for Fassy, Hardy or Skarsgaard (Hardy’s face freaks me out and Skars is …like, if he walked by me on the street I wouldnt even see him). But I will be the final Hiddlestoner here, esp bc now he is sort of my consolation prize now that Hems is making more and more… questionable behavioral choices.

      • Marty says:

        I hear ya on Chris. Sad thing is he looked so happy and care-free on his recent stay in Australia. I still can’t help but root for the guy, even given his questionable choices.

      • EscapedConvent says:

        Still more interesting than Rob Kardshian sobbing in the shower over his small p*nis. I am still astonished that this circus family will blurt out absolutely anything. Nothing seems to embarrass them.

        Listen to the Kardashians talk (can they read & write?, btw) & then listen to CookieBatch.

    • Mia 4S says:

      More likely the webmasters have their preferences and if we don’t like it we can start our own damn blog. 😉

      Seriously though it’s not like anyone is forcing a click. If I see a Kardashian or Rimes post I do the mature thing…I don’t click and I run away screaming.

      • Hanna says:

        Its not even that Mia4S If you are not into odd looking british guys and the duchess and kim kardashian/leeannrhimes. There is nothing here for you.

      • Lauli says:

        Mia, I completely agree with you.

  12. Jenny says:

    Meh! Every day a there is a post of this basic looking man. Its getting really tiresome

  13. Lauli says:

    So happy for every Cumby post. Thanks CB

  14. Bebe says:

    I cant stand him and he is not attractive either.

  15. grabbyhands says:

    Ahh, the wedding! Cue the Tumblr crazies screaming that John is only getting married because he can’t admit that he’s in love with Sherlock.

    I hope Graham Norton reads him some of the fanfiction-that will be good for many laughs. I wonder when that episode in the US?

  16. Anna says:

    I started re-reading the Sherlock books (which I originally read in my early teens so…a while ago) just to fill the void until September, when the series is rumored to return. Really, it’s getting harder and harder to wait!

  17. Dani says:

    Ugh his voice!!!! Love him with short hair.

  18. JustaGirl says:

    Watson gets married in the original story. It’s probably him getting married. 🙂

  19. princesslizabeth says:

    Can’t get enough of him. 🙂

  20. Mo says:

    He is so overexposed compare to his actual achievements, that the backlash is imminent.

  21. T.Fanty says:


    I was getting bored with this thread, so started looking around for fun things to post. Check this out!

    • EscapedConvent says:

      I guess that’s why Benedict was kissing that little stuffed hedgehog. I don’t know who started it, but someone on Tumblr declared that Martin Freeman was a hedgehog some time ago. No idea why. I guess if they decided Benedict was an otter, Martin needed to be cute as well. But I don’t see where Martin needs any cute-ening.

      • T.Fanty says:

        It kind of works, because he can be a little prickly, too. He has an acid semse of humor, which doesn’t always translate.

        How are you, EsCon? I see AgentMOL finally started cloning, so we no longer have to share:

        Don’t ask me what the hell it is, but as I love you and am still happily enjoying my Shakespeare birthday celebrations, I’ll let you pick whether you want bank manager or homeless Cumby. Either way, I still get the harness.

      • Eve says:

        So you love EscapedConvent enough to give her a Cumby-clone? Even worse, she gets to choose which one she wants!

        I’m feeling sooooo left out now 🙁 (that’s ok though…don’t mind me here in the corner, quietly crying).

      • T.Fanty says:

        I’m so sorry Eve! I just assumed you would make your decision and shank whomever had him.

      • Eve says:

        I know — and I will (do that).

        It’s just that you thought of her…instead of me…*sniffs*

      • EscapedConvent says:

        Ladies, ladies, please! First I must thank you for the laughs & smiles on a dreary day, dealing with some highly annoying nonsense. At least on CB, there is some good will & warmth to be had.

        Brava to Miss M for her brilliant results in cloning, which we all have been awaiting while holding our collective breath until we turn blue-ish.

        Fanty, I don’t know how to thank you for giving me a choice of Cumby lifestyles. This is going to be a conundrum wrapped in a dilemma for me. Cumby looks smart/hot in glasses, yet the battered, lost Cumby pulls at my heart-strings.

        (I had no idea “Inseparable” had showed up on Youtube! Months ago I searched for it as if my very life depended on it.)

        Fanty, you are truly a magical source of Cumby vision & a Ginger-ringleted koala after my own heart. For William Shake’s birthday, I had hoped to have Cumby, here in front of the fireplace, to read the Sonnets as I plied him with that whiskey he loves so much. I hoped he would not notice that I was sneakily hiding his woolen accessories.

        Oh Fanty, my Fanty—thank you! 😉

        @Eve, my Brazilian Twin, let us take comfort in Leonard Cohen & how he might advise us to deal with the CumbyClones. Leonard’s wisdom as a poet monk will certainly think of things we haven’t. Perhaps he could advise you, until you are ready to practice Cloning Law. This is going to be a huge thing, & we ought to be ready. We love our Pale Posh Dudes here, but there are so few of them to go around, & so many women who absolutely must have them, that I fear Cumby will be the first mass-cloned Tall Ginger Man.

        This has triggered a flood of ideas about how this CumbyCloning could go terribly wrong, . For example, the 5,000th Cumby clone might not be as sharp, witty & wonderfully bitchy as the original. Then we would have Cumber Battles about who gets which Clone, &….here we are back at the beginning. But I will save that for another time…..

        Oh, & finally, I feel sure that Fanty will set aside a great Clone for you too, if you stop shanking her. (There are newer Cumberbitches here recently that you really ought to pay more attention to. They haven’t had the Beejeebers scared out of them yet—this ought to be fun!)

      • T.Fanty says:

        Firstly, Eve, I love that you’re showing your sensitive side, although making you weep is a pain almost akin to a good shanking.

        Maybe we just need them in rotation. Maybe we can get Miss M. to make one more, a Sherlock clone, then we have all bases covered. It doesn’t matter if the rest are cheap knock-off clones or failed FrankenHiddles experiments – we’ll just pop a matching hat and jumper on them and sell them on tumblr.

        As for Shakespeare, no whiskey, but we do have curls(!) and cheesy music swelling in the background. Happy Day-after-Shakespeare’s-Birthday!:

        Although it pales in comparison to this *true* poetry. Behold (although be warned – it’s soul-wrenching):

      • Eve says:

        @ EsCon:

        You guys can keep the clones. It’s the original Cumberbatch who I want anyway…

        @ T.Fanty:

        Cumberbatch’s voice is so amazing that it almost feels like it’s a separate entity.

  22. Lindy79 says:

    Very excited. I think (*and hope) he will
    go along with the jokes.
    Graham Norton has such a way of turning interviews into comedy. He’s been very relaxed on Jonathan Ross and Alan Carr before, which are similar in the way they interview so I have high hopes. The only thing that could affect it is Chris Pine, not sure what his sense of humour about himself is like…

    This is one of my favourite moments from Graham Norton!

    • Mia 4S says:

      Lindy79 that is hilarious! I wouldn’t worry about Chris Pine on Norton, his interviews with Zachary Quinto are hilarious and very cute. Seriously do NOT search YouTube, I lost an hour one day. 😉

  23. Zozo says:

    I watched Sherlock for the first time yesterday. Now I can say that I understand the whole vibe about this guy. He is pretty interesting and charming. 😉

  24. Anniegetyourfun says:

    Another day another cumberbatch post with the same 5 posters posting over and over! Snore!

    • Mia 4S says:

      But you clicked…and you commented! That right there helps move the post up among the most popular on the site for the day and guarantees more of the same.

      Do people not understand how the Internet works? 🙂

  25. andy says:

    Can anyone tell me why Star Trek fans are pissed at Cumby and Abrams?

    Early reviews about the film are coming out and some fans are pissed. People saying that BC should be ashamed and his role will cause a backlash against him.

    Don’t know anything about ST but was confused by the comments.

    • EscapedConvent says:

      What?! Well, I would so love to hear more about this. BC should be ashamed?

      If anyone knows anything, do tell!

    • T.Fanty says:

      That must be the Kahn thing. There were a lot of people objecting in advance to a caucasian actor playing Kahn, as the original guy was not white (not a trekkie, so that’s the extent of my understanding). I can understand why whitewashing (literally) an iconic role might offend fans.

      • EscapedConvent says:

        Yes, I just saw that. If they want surprises they should release it on the same day world-wide.

        I’m not a Trekkie & didn’t see the Wrath of Khan, but maybe I will now. So I guess Abrams’ smokescreen worked until now.

        Cumby did say (tongue in cheek) that if he’s crap in this film, it is JJ Abrams’ fault.

    • Mia 4S says:

      Can’t really explain it without major spoilers but to be honest…backlash? No. In the real world? No. It’s a group of online fans who haven’t seen the movie but don’t like a particular plot point, but again they have no idea of the overall story or how it plays onscreen. Only Australia has seen the movie and of those the worst review I saw was “really enjoyed it”. Cumby got raves. Tumblr is bad for your health ;-).

    • Mia 4S says:

      LOL, oops? Well thank you TFanty! Supposedly reviews are heavily implying that’s the character. The original actor was Mexican …but the original character was possibly Indian. The original character was also part of a genetically engineered group of humans modified and altered to suit a purpose. He could look like my grandmother and it wouldn’t be out of the question. Tumblr and livejournal love them some outrage though, bless them!

      • Lucrezia says:


        The original Kahn was written as having Indian Sikh heritage. But they didn’t give him a turban or beard and then cast an actor who identified as Hispanic (born in Mexico to Spanish parents).

        The character is just a big old ethnic mess. Which, imo, is how it should be. Star Trek is set 120 years in the future. Don’t you hope we’ve got beyond rigid ideas of ethnicity by then?

      • Eve says:

        Agree with both.
