      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. User Image 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.
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 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...!

Well, for those of us who saw Third Star, it's not like that one's anything new. emotion_8c Looking forward to only having to HEAR instead of WATCH! emotion_donotwant

don't worry we'll probably be getting another Ben's Characters Dying preview in series 2 of Sherlock, as well. :''D So we'll be prepared! It'll be okay!

I heard Bene is coming to the states for his Frankenstein play. I believe he's playing 'the monster' for us.
I'm very tempted to go see it.

      Oh, dear lord. <3 I saw that at the local movie theatre when they were streaming it live. Benny was the Monster that time, too.

      The first twenty minutes was basically Cumberbum: The Motion Picture.

      Ten people in the whole room. ;< But there was a huge lineup for Twilight. They were not among the worthy.

No worries. Such is the nature of rumors, they occasionally have to be wrong. C:
It was a nice dream while it lasted! Thanks for coming here first to share such things, anyway. emotion_dowant

      Ah, don't mind me. I'm just a really bitchy purist. And I was at work while writing that post (grey text = work computer = oh ********, bitchmode activate ) so it's easy to come off as harsh. I started off in 1997 with the books, Brett, and that old DIC series, Sherlock Holmes in the 22nd Century. (Holmes and Watson were my first pairing. I REGRET NOTHING.)

      Shirtless!Benedict.gif is totally my peace offering. :u

      God damn, how is he so oddly built but insanely attractive at the same time.

Ohmygod, I am now a melted puddle mess all over the floor @w@

Oh dear...Benedict's bum is quite lovely! o///o

And also, I've been reading Sherlock Holmes recently. My library has got "The Complete Sherlock Holmes" vols 1 and 2
Anywho, I've been thinking of how awesome it'd be for certain stories to get made into an episode.
There's this one called "The Gloria Scott" Also "The Musgrave Ritual" and "The Reigate Puzzle"
They're all pretty awesome and very clever!

Or maybe if they added certain aspects from them, as Moffat and Godtiss seem to have done already =w=

And I also hope that there's a 3rd series so that these things may happen >w<

And also during my reading, I've come across a quote which Sherlock says "It's a 3 pipe problem" and I was all emotion_awesome omg
And also the quote where Benedict-Sherlock says "I'd be nothing without my blogger" although, obviously, Doyle didn't use "blogger" XD

On a side note, kinda curious. Has anyone listened to Cabin Pressure? The radio show with Benedict in it? ninja It's brilliant! XD

*Finally, the end of le post~*

I'd honestly... I don't care that the Bruce-Partington story was a sort of re-do of The Naval Treaty, I LOVED that story (Treaty) and would be thrilled beyond belief to have even bits of it brought to our time period (because tbh it's just the bits that made me love it. I just... Our cuddly doctor was a bully! And my GOD that guy was annoying, it was the most hilarious thing to read even John "The Very Face Of Courtesy" Watson grow weary of his presence). Also The Adventure of the Yellow Face but tbh I don't think that'd be possible to bring forward, though I do love Holmes addressing that, yes, he DOES spin these grand theories on tiny details, and while usually he's right, sometimes he is WAY off the mark and he's completely cool with it. Just... Ahh, just LOVELOVELOVE. Lovelovelove. Love.

Also glad you (all) liked the Benebum gifs. Hope you saved them because idk if tinypic goes through and removes things it doesn't like but those might be something it doesn't like.
