And then, somewhere in tumblr, I found this:
I don’t know guys, I am on roller coaster of FEELS right now.
And thanks dear anon and all the other people that made such amazing gifs. You’re the reason why I keep using tumblr. ❤
I was hoping someone had giffed the “original” movie version! Huzzah tumblr!
…. Is that Benny’s hand?
Seeing your comment I totally thought it was Ben’s hand for a second, did some quick photo research and his fingers/hand is way longer/bigger. It does seem tricky to show us something so iconic …
Regardless, this is beautiful, I had to fight back tears the first time I saw this extra bit on the teaser. This movie is gonna be sweeeeeet.

DEAR WRITERS, PRODUCERS, MARKETING EXECUTIVES, AND LICENSING EXECUTIVES FOR BBC’S SHERLOCK:
Right now, we Americans have your two lead actors.
We promise that they are being treated humanely, being fed well and kept in comfortable conditions.
Here’s the thing, though. If you want them back in the UK, you need to meet the following demands:
1. America broadcasts Sherlock Series Three no later than one week after the uk premiere.
2. The dvd/blu-ray edition features very extensive interviews, behind-the-scenes, commentary, and a gag reel. Gag reel, people. This is important.
3. You pledge not to play off the emotional reunion of John and Sherlock by making it cutesy or off-camera or anything to do with a fucking ringtone.
4. The reunion must include something physical. A punch, a hug, a shove, whatever. We also demand some emotional dialogue. No ‘three months later’ bullshit.
5. John’s scar.
6. John actually being a doctor.
7. John in uniform.
8. Both men in formalwear.
At this moment, both Martin and Benedict are being fitted with undetectable homing devices.
Our spies will be observing your filming as well as copies of your scripts.
If it appears that our demands are being ignored, we will activate the homing devices and immediately bring these men back to the USA to be kept in
my bedrooman undisclosed location until you comply.
You have a matter of hours to consider.
Attention: This is a Joke. Dear God, PLEASE do not bombard me with hateful asks because it looks like I am threatening anyone or, God forbid, criticizing anybody’s writing or production.
So aside from the major sites like E!, is there anyone who is going to be livestreaming the Emmys and Red Carpet? I guess I could always try my dormitory’s lounge area if worst comes to worst :Y
Life of Benedict Cumberbatch fangirls:
*me, watching the musical CATS with my sister*
This guy comes on:
Sister: Well, he could be the Benedict of CATS considering how popular he is.
Me: *thinks* ..
Me: Then I guess this is every Benedict fangirl:
BENEDICK EVERYWHERE, EVERYWHERE!!!
Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch was among the stars of academia, media and TV in attendance last night at the premiere of theoretical physicist Professor Stephen Hawking’s new documentary series, Stephen Hawking’s Grand Design.
Taking place at London’s presitgious Royal Society, the event saw writers Will Self and Adam Rutherford join experimental physicist Athene Donald, Astronomer Royal Martin Rees, Cumberbatch and Mock the Week host Dara O’Briain for a debate about where science will take us over the next 40 years.
O’Briain hosted the debate and kicked off by quipping that Kevin McCloud and Channel 4’s lawyers will doubtless be keeping a close watch on the series on account of Grand Design’s titular similarity to C4 property series Grand Designs.
While O’Briain joked on Twitter before the premiere that he might struggle with the debate, as he’d spent part of the day playing a drinking game with Lee Mack for his new stand-up DVD, the Irish comedian had a whale of a time.
“What a mad night,” he tweeted, before joking: “The high point was Benedict Cumberbatch telling Stephen exclusive details of the new Star Trek film.”
The other panellists evidently enjoyed themselves too, as Adam Rutherford tweeted Athene Donald after the event to say “lovely to meet you at last, sorry we didn’t catchup afterwards,” to which the Cambridge physicist responded: “Indeed! Hope our paths cross again soon. Interesting event.”
Reflecting on last night’s event earlier today, O’Briain joked that, having enjoyed such convivial company with some of his heroes, his life had “peaked”.
“So, margaritas with Sherlock Holmes and Stephen Hawking. My life has peaked. Sell your Dara shares now,” he wrote.
Stephen Hawking’s Grand Design begins on Discover on Thursday 13 September at 9:00pm.
If you’d like a taster of what to expect from the programme, check out this clip of show in which Hawking and Cumberbatch outline exactly what constitutes a law of nature.
It’s like all my favorite things are converging in one spot.
In Parade’s End, my dad plays a character called Lord Westershire. We were filming together on his 72nd birthday in the middle of the Yorkshire Moors. It was a ludicrous Victorian picnic scene and it was blowing a gale. So food was flying into our faces. It was a hysterically funny day.
