Naw, it was s**t like Martin Freeman's grandfather was an army doctor invalided home after being shot, and then the completely stupid coincidence that ACD was good at football and had five children (lolRupertGraves).
- I do know that one of the projects Benedict was involved in when he was cast as Holmes re-wrote things at the last second to include a lot of references. I just can't remember what it was. Not a coincidence, but it's interesting at the least. Similar thing happened with Quatermass when Tennant was cast as the Tenth Doctor.
Also looking forward to Freeman and Cumberbatch as Bilbo and Smaug. Ugh. <3 Benny's voice is so similar to the one I heard in my head for dat dragon when I first read the Hobbit. *_*
lol I had eggs benedict this morning for breakfast.
I remember Cabin Pressure had a mystery-solving episode and John Finnemore made a point NOT to reference Sherlock Holmes, instead likening Benedict's character to, get this, Miss Marple. XDDDD
Ffffff both of them are going to be SO perfect. I love listening to Benedict talk about being Smaug, he's clearly THRILLED which is always a good sign, and Martin..! Just. We all know, I don't even need to say it. Ughthisisgonnabethebest and don't even let's get going about the brilliant REST of the cast...!
