a thread for those who have had their lives ruined by the charms of one Mr Benedict Cumberbatch. Come and share with those who really understand what it's like to live with this burden.

Some classics to get us in the mood.

Sudename Fri 06-Jun-14 14:45:30

Hello all

Sudename Fri 06-Jun-14 14:48:06

A few more classics

RiverTam Fri 06-Jun-14 14:50:30

ah, the purple shirt of sex, how could I have forgotten it.

And Khaaaaaaan, now he's a life-ruiner and no mistake.

Sudename Fri 06-Jun-14 14:58:08

KHAN Sweet Jebus what a body

Sudename Fri 06-Jun-14 15:09:22

Now I must log off and do some work

HRHsherlockssextoy Fri 06-Jun-14 15:55:19

I have a whole file now. More than I have of my children.....

HRHsherlockssextoy Fri 06-Jun-14 15:56:54

There's a smiley one of that photo of the radio 4 thing. Apparently he's on at midnight tonight too.

I have run out of photos for today...

RiverTam Fri 06-Jun-14 16:02:40

I have a folder on my desktop at work and on my laptop blush. I am dreading DH coming across it, he will look at me like I've plumbed new depths of patheticness. And he'd be right!

Sudename Fri 06-Jun-14 16:47:40

I have various folders too. My teenage dd thinks I'm pathetic

Cumberlover76 Fri 06-Jun-14 16:52:53

Hello ladies (any men? Do the gays like him?!)

Here's my initial contribution to the new thread....

He's so fucking gorgeous, those last ones on the old thread are stunning and he looks hot at Turing. Love a bit of bad ass Khan too, actually, i just love him any way he looks.

Suede what will you be watching tonight?

Can someone give me a list on all the R4 things he's done over the past few days so i can catch up on iPlayer over the weekend?

I also have a massive BC photo file on my work computer and on my tablet. Actually, my file is on my google drive so i can access it anywhere in case of a Benedict emergency when i must look at him immediately!

Cumberlover76 Fri 06-Jun-14 16:53:52

Ooooh, I'm having a Cumbercrisis and must ogle him right now! How about this?

Cumberlover76 Fri 06-Jun-14 17:09:23

Radio 4 article with some useful links.

Sudename Fri 06-Jun-14 17:10:17

Oh cumber I loves me some scarf action.
Will probably watch star trek as dh working ;)

RiverTam Fri 06-Jun-14 17:13:52

I reckon sudename's going to be watching a bit of him in this - my favourite gif, I think, nice bit of BeefyBatch. Though I do like this SmileyHairBlowingInTheWinbdBatch too.

Sudename Fri 06-Jun-14 17:20:18

Close up of the radio 4 thing and I am out of pics so keep them coming

Cumberlover76 Fri 06-Jun-14 18:27:17

How about this? I would whip him and tie him up............. Mmmmm Cumberbatch bondage that sounds like much fun wink

Sudename Fri 06-Jun-14 18:51:19

How do you post gifs

Sudename Fri 06-Jun-14 18:51:55

How do you post gifs

thinkineed2admit Fri 06-Jun-14 19:00:06

LOL @ 'do the gays like him' ...would be interested to know!

RiverTam Fri 06-Jun-14 19:09:55

I drag them onto my desktop and then add them same as a picture.

I have just remembered that I'm babysitting tonight! Packed a Sherlock DVD in my bag for my evening's viewing pleasure. Hurray!

BondageBatch is - well, words fail me <fans self>

Cumberlover76 Fri 06-Jun-14 20:35:42

Just save as you would a normal photo and upload as a photo. Mmmmmmm bondagebatch!

Sudename Fri 06-Jun-14 21:18:47

Bondage batch <wibbles uncontrollably>

Well, one of my best friends "plays for the other team" and he's been a fan since I showed him "Sherlock" last summer.

Have you seen this article? A translation was in my local paper this morning.

HRHsherlockssextoy Sat 07-Jun-14 10:17:18

Some photos to add

Looking back at the Poland pics, god, so fine

LumpySpacedPrincess Sat 07-Jun-14 13:26:13

My contribution is a bit of brooding Batch.

thinkineed2admit Sat 07-Jun-14 18:09:02

Loving broodingbatch...

Sudename Sat 07-Jun-14 18:37:14

Some black and white batch

HRHsherlockssextoy Sat 07-Jun-14 19:44:41

Loving black and white batch

What about jag batch?

good to be bad

Sudename Sat 07-Jun-14 20:04:55

Oh Lord look at this one dishevelled Batch

Jag Batch is just mmmm

Sudename Sat 07-Jun-14 23:56:40

Smiley Batch

HRHsherlockssextoy Sun 08-Jun-14 11:58:45

Lovely smiley batch!

Weird hair batch

Sudename Sun 08-Jun-14 15:22:00

At the French Open Tennis today

HRHsherlockssextoy Sun 08-Jun-14 16:26:39

I wondered whether he was going to be there today
was spotted in France buying a hat this week

Cumberlover76 Sun 08-Jun-14 16:59:09

très sexy! Not sure about the sunnies though. Sometimes he wears some dodgy sunglasses, still doesn't dampen my ardour though!

piratecat Sun 08-Jun-14 17:05:11

ello all.

Sudename Sun 08-Jun-14 17:28:40

I Wonder are they prescription ones cumber
Oh lovely Khan button Piratecat

Sudename Sun 08-Jun-14 17:36:53

Khan butt I meant damn you auto correct

SciFiFan Sun 08-Jun-14 17:57:39

Marking my place on the new thread with some of my faves.

Cumberlover76 Mon 09-Jun-14 07:23:40

All lovely photos. I love Khan arse, yummy.

Sudename Mon 09-Jun-14 07:59:19

Morning another lovely one from yesterday

Cumberlover76 Mon 09-Jun-14 10:39:30

i like his hair at the moment. What's the next thing he's filming? Anyone know?

HRHsherlockssextoy Mon 09-Jun-14 12:14:20

He's in this black mass film with johnny depp. I thought he would have been there by now.

I'm having lunch in the pollen STreet social tomorrow.

Then it's the Richard III thing I think. Then the penguins of Madagascar is out. He's playing a wolf.

Sudename Mon 09-Jun-14 12:52:26

A wolf you say RAWR!

Sudename Mon 09-Jun-14 15:03:03

So beautiful - I'd lick the screen if I wasn't in work grin

piratecat Mon 09-Jun-14 15:13:36


that Khan picture, ok the butt's obviously the stealer, but i love his neck and hairline in that pic too. So, so, neck and hair liney grin Just want to inhale it.


Sudename Mon 09-Jun-14 16:17:02

Because you can never get enough Khan
Also I would love to crawl up onto his lap in the second pic and. . .

RiverTam Mon 09-Jun-14 16:22:10

for the Khan-butt fans out there (so that's everyone, right?) I give you BatchButt in motion. Twice.

Sudename Mon 09-Jun-14 18:45:48

Ooh thank you kindly Rivertam
Another butt shot ;)

Cumberlover76 Mon 09-Jun-14 22:04:55

He has such a fine arse..... Here's one to add to the mix and another I haven't seen before.

Sudename Mon 09-Jun-14 22:25:32

I've my limit of pics used sad

OnlyLovers Tue 10-Jun-14 11:58:13

Here you all are!

Head down working at the moment, so I don't have anything to add, sorry. But thanks for all these! tennis cake

Sudename Tue 10-Jun-14 12:55:26

If only lol

RiverTam Tue 10-Jun-14 14:10:07

a selection for your delectation - StretchyBatch, CardieBatch and Mean'n'MoodyBatch

SciFiFan Wed 11-Jun-14 07:28:00

Haha love that Sudename. If only....

MegCleary Wed 11-Jun-14 16:43:43
thinkineed2admit Wed 11-Jun-14 16:49:34

haha, anyone loving the 'hnnnffffmmmm!' noise there???

Sudename Wed 11-Jun-14 18:30:07

Oh yes ladies that growl noise at 1.07 RAWR

Sudename Wed 11-Jun-14 19:13:55

Sexy lip bite going on. . .

HRHsherlockssextoy Wed 11-Jun-14 20:14:15

I hope the movie doesn't suck. Madagascar 1 was good but the rest......

Tumblr is my new favourite thing.

I give you this blog


Shame it's not us eh?

HRHsherlockssextoy Wed 11-Jun-14 20:31:21

Adding this as I haven't seen it

He's by the 3d printing sign

I'd like a 3/4 d version please

Dammit, HRH, now I have that song "Toucha Touch Me" from the Rocky Horror Picture Show running through my head.

Hmm, I wonder what he would look like in gold lamé pants?

Sudename Wed 11-Jun-14 22:09:44

Needsagreencard you now have my mind wandering to places it shouldn't with the thoughts of BC in gold lame pants blush

Mrsfrumble Thu 12-Jun-14 16:13:57

Can I join please? I've been wavering for ages, trying to decide if BC is extraordinarily beautiful or extraordinarily odd looking.

Having just caught up with the third season of Sherlock on Netflix I've decided that it doesn't matter, 'cause I still would...

HRHsherlockssextoy Thu 12-Jun-14 17:49:05

You may...

Would this make you like the football anymore?

I'd like to juggle his balls
And score with him
And have a Brazilian...

Anymore football euphamisms?

Cumberlover76 Thu 12-Jun-14 18:26:20

He can put one in the back of my net HRH!
And I'd definitely share a bath with him.
Footballers are twats though and Benedict is not. He likes a bit of cycling doesn't he, that's def my kind of man. Tour de France anyone?

You are very welcome Mrsfrumble, enjoy the Cumberporn, if you're not fully Cumberbatched you soon will be hanging out on here, we're pretty obsessive!

Cumberlover76 Thu 12-Jun-14 18:28:01

Awwww, he's going all freckley in the sun, bless gingerbatch!

Sudename Thu 12-Jun-14 18:35:30

Welcome MrsFrumble
Not football I know but didn't he play rugby in school? Wouldn't mind getting into a ruck and maul with him and obviously I'd go for a try lol

Mrsfrumble Thu 12-Jun-14 18:55:32

I need to work at it. I must confess that I actually fell asleep during the Star Trek film, but it was due to sleep deprivation and wine rather than lack of interest in Khan's cheekbones.

He does tick most of the boxes for my ideal chap... Cheekbones, tall, dandyish, posh. There are some rather tasty pictures on this thread wink

HRHsherlockssextoy Thu 12-Jun-14 20:29:37


There are multiple pages for us cumbercartel. Peruse at your leisure

there are some lush pics on here

Sudename Thu 12-Jun-14 23:28:35

Pic in shirt taken at Malaysia gran prix in March
Pic in t shirt taken 2 weeks ago at Hay

Definitely bulking up (but for what I wonder)

Ooh, HRH, I hadn't seen that Tumblr before. Nice.

I am particularly fond of this entry, but not for the reason you think. Look at the woman sitting next to him. The expression on her face. As if Benedict made a very rude noise and is now pretending nothing's happened.

And in this one, I swear he's channelling Ralph Fiennes.

HRHsherlockssextoy Fri 13-Jun-14 21:32:56

Lots of the photos on that blog are lovely. And quite funny too.

Such a provocative pose mr batch

Mrsfrumble Fri 13-Jun-14 22:29:40

Ooh, I do like the cardie. If you were his girlfriend you could steal it, then surreptitiously sniff it while you were wearing it. I bet it smells all manly and lovely.

Am I getting the hang of this?

Mrsfrumble, looks good to me!

Sudename Sat 14-Jun-14 17:36:18

MrsFrumble it's like the Hotel California here. You can check in anytime you like but you can never leave grin

OnlyLovers Sat 14-Jun-14 18:26:48

Cor, HRH, that's lovely. Something about the snake hips in those jeans makes me feel funny in my tummy. grin

Sudename Sat 14-Jun-14 19:15:30

A selection for a Saturday night
Dh is working so me and dd are going to watch some Sherlock

HRHsherlockssextoy Sat 14-Jun-14 20:10:53

On a more sad note, the football pic is from a documentary on christano Ronaldo. Marvellous player but a bit of a dick.

This place only feeds the addiction. You end up stealing things from planes for people, talking about vibrating dolls.....

This pic is from James Rhodes. I wonder where this is? Quite an eclectic place....

ColinFirthsGirth Sat 14-Jun-14 20:31:51

I saw a copy of The Lady today and it has a lovely photo of Benedict on the front cover! I may have to buy it.

RiverTam Sat 14-Jun-14 22:33:12

sudename - snap - DH working so it's a Sherlock in the bag.

Colin - thanks for the heads up, I may well have to purchase this, though can't quite tell if it's an interview or just some journo waffling on about him.

HRHsherlockssextoy Sat 14-Jun-14 22:44:50

It's taken from a book that's been written about him. The mag is on tumblr if you want to read it. Lurvly pic of him at the vf party after oscars.

Buy one on ebay. I doubt if I will go into a wh smith anytime soon to purchase.

Sudename Sun 15-Jun-14 15:28:15

According to twitter BC in Boston to film Black Mass. Can't do links from my phone

SugarFinney Sun 15-Jun-14 20:54:39

These are lovely.

RL got in the way last way, I have returned (not from anything exciting btw) to find a new thread and 4 pages of amazing pics grin

RiverTam Sun 15-Jun-14 20:55:49

ooh, lovely Sugar, I love him with longer hair.

RiverTam Sun 15-Jun-14 21:38:58

rewatching Sherlock - Martin Freeman is such a great actor, isn't he? The way he says 'he's my friend' after he jumped is just heartbreaking.

Sudename Mon 16-Jun-14 12:40:20

Monday again ladies and a few of my personal faves to kick start the week wink

SciFiFan Mon 16-Jun-14 14:10:37

Love those pics Sudename perfect pick me up for a Monday.

Tam, just re watched His Last Vow and Martin Freemans reaction to Sherlock having a girlfriend is priceless. I agree he's a brilliant actor.

As for my picky I love the second one grin.

Cumberlover76 Mon 16-Jun-14 14:23:06

Afternoon all, always surprises me when this thread falls off my 'i'm on', obvs not giving the batch enough attention at the moment. Love all of the pics.

As for Martin Freeman, love him too, he's amazing in Fargo.

Sudename Mon 16-Jun-14 14:37:49

Martin Freeman is brilliant - it's the subtle little facial expressions that he does so well.
On another note 15 year old dd had a dream that she was in a dance off with Ben. She'll be Cumberbatched yet wink

RiverTam Mon 16-Jun-14 19:34:39

I think I tarred MF with the brush of The Office (which I hated, not good with very cringeworthy TV!) for a long time, was dubious when he was cast in The Hobbit, but he's brilliant in everything. Missed Fargo but will pick it up on DVD.

In fact, must check out tickets for his Richard III.

Love that pic, SciFi!

HRHsherlockssextoy Mon 16-Jun-14 21:47:01

I've git tickets to see Richard iii, I'll tell you how it goes.

I think there has been a link to this in a previous page but still lovely

best pics

Sudename Wed 18-Jun-14 09:59:13

Lovely pics HRH

Boston Batch

HRHsherlockssextoy Wed 18-Jun-14 12:53:53

Twitter all a flutter at the idea that there will be lots of sherlock merchandise.

These include bedding, blankets, adult puzzles...

Cumberlover76 Wed 18-Jun-14 13:38:28

.... adult toys HRH? That was out idea .........

Cumberlover76 Wed 18-Jun-14 13:38:49

oops, our idea

HRHsherlockssextoy Wed 18-Jun-14 14:46:25

No adults sex toys cumberlover we could still make a fortune..

A mr potato head. Who want one if those?

SciFiFan Thu 19-Jun-14 07:47:17

Just bought myself a Sherlock phone cover blush. Figured I was too old for a BC T shirt grin.

I'll let you in to a secret........I love it!! Has his face and says I Am SHERlocked gringrin. It's like I'm 14 again not 44.

HRHsherlockssextoy Thu 19-Jun-14 09:58:23

Looks like there might be a sherlock convention in autumn to go with all the extra merchandise.


cumberlover and I can get really drunk and proposition him. All of his dreams come true.

Except stories of girlfriend has surfaced again. Not that that will stop us...

Sudename Thu 19-Jun-14 12:07:07

Choosing to ignore the girlfriend rumors
Anyway I give you Boston Batch - he's filling out nicely but he needs to watch that pale skin in the 90 degree sun grin

Frankenstein will be re touring the world from October but still no showing in Ireland

HRHsherlockssextoy Thu 19-Jun-14 14:06:44

Beat me sudename!

Diff pic though.

I'm wondering how Pervy it will be to go to see Frankenstein in the cinema on my own?

Sudename Thu 19-Jun-14 14:09:33

Go for it HRH cause if it does come to my home town I'll be going on my own

HRHsherlockssextoy Thu 19-Jun-14 14:46:01

I shall go on my own and rub my thighs expectantly

HRHsherlockssextoy Thu 19-Jun-14 14:47:07

So Benedict has a girlfriend?


OnlyLovers Thu 19-Jun-14 14:48:12

HRH, I saw it on my own twice (once with BC as the Creature and once with JLM). The cinema was full of women trying to look casual, plus a male cinema usher with a faint but unmistakeable knowing smile on his mug. grin

Cumberlover76 Thu 19-Jun-14 18:11:37

I already have my Sherlock calendar that DH bought me, bless him. Is Frankenstein in all lots of cinemas? Where's the info?

Right up for convention drunkenness HRH, lots of fun.

Sudename Thu 19-Jun-14 18:26:12

There was a test screening of The Imitation Game in NY last night - got great reviews and supposedly he's best performance to date

HRHsherlockssextoy Thu 19-Jun-14 20:24:00

From national theatre live email that I had

Due to unprecendented audience demand, the National Theatre's acclaimed production of Frankenstein will return to cinemas for a limited time from 30 October.

Directed by Academy Award®-winner Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire, London 2012 Olympics Opening Ceremony), Frankenstein features Benedict Cumberbatch (12 Years A Slave, Star Trek: Into Darkness) and Jonny Lee Miller (Trainspotting, Mansfield Park) alternating roles as Victor Frankenstein and his creation.

Returning to cinemas
from 30 October
Venues on sale soon

And some pictures as well

Cumberlover76 Thu 19-Jun-14 20:41:15

Oooh their showing it in my local cinema end of Oct/beginning Nov. Is he best as the monster or Frankenstein? Can prob only get away with seeing it once!

WAAAAHHHH!!!! He's in my hometown and I'm over here?? WAAAAAHHHH. Life is so damn unfair!

Note: The Boston Herald is the Boston equivalent of the Daily Fail. Absolutely crap paper. Sonsie is located on Newbury Street, which is the swanky shopping street.

Sudename Fri 20-Jun-14 09:58:45

I see he arrived on set in the flat cap and maroon pants. I presume the chambray shirt will make an appearance soon. Bless

Cumberlover, without having seen a performance of Frankenstein, I guess it all depends on what you want to see. Eloquence? Then Frankenstein. Him in the almost-altogether (read: loincloth)? Monster.

OnlyLovers Fri 20-Jun-14 14:51:54

GreenCard, I think he's pretty eloquent in both roles. I loved his interpretation of the Creature. Heartbreaking and thought-provoking.

HRHsherlockssextoy Sun 22-Jun-14 00:41:13

New pic from ad for Dunlop

No I don't get it either. But pic is lurvly.

Sudename Sun 22-Jun-14 14:22:17

New shirt alert lol

HRHsherlockssextoy Sun 22-Jun-14 17:32:31

A rather open shirt.

That picture he's looking deep into your soul.....

HRHsherlockssextoy Sun 22-Jun-14 17:39:56

Seen this on Facebook

I received this very gracious email from Benedict Cumberbatch today:

Dear Margareta,
Please let me give you a long overdue thank you for replacing my lost Sami tribe bracelet. It was such an important keep sake for me given to me by a dear Swedish friend who became a sister to me on a job so it carried massive personal worth. I was soo upset when I lost it so thank you for replacing it. I'm thrilled that my casual wearing of the bracelet has brought it to the attention of the world and wish you and the extraordinary Swedish artisans who create this unique bracelet every bit of luck that the bracelets themselves are supposed to bring.
Yours sincerely,
Benedict Cumberbatch


PrincessTheresaofLiechtenstein Sun 22-Jun-14 22:11:48

Sherlocked event will be held in the next three months apparently! Need to know when and where so I can start persuading DP that I really do need to go.

Sudename Mon 23-Jun-14 10:44:30

Will that be in the UK Princess
The dd might like a trip away wink

HRHsherlockssextoy Mon 23-Jun-14 16:40:57

New Turing photo today

Sudename Mon 23-Jun-14 18:57:56

Ah lovely pic

Holy crap, there are a lot of nice new photos from the Black Mass set today.

And here:
And here:
And here:
And this too:

And Geny is right, he does look like Dennis Quaid in these. (I was lucky enough to see him and his band in concert in New York City almost 10 years ago. Damn, that man had energy!!)

HRHsherlockssextoy Mon 23-Jun-14 20:48:41

They've done something to his cheeks haven't they?

Love the sideburns, had a look my the pics from earlier in the week and they are there but I think they have been "enhanced"

I want to be a make up person.

Sudename Mon 23-Jun-14 20:56:05

Great pics Needsagreencard
I'd say he's using cheek plumpers to give him a rounder face and really rocking the 1970s look.

PrincessTheresaofLiechtenstein Mon 23-Jun-14 22:18:30

Dennis Quaid! Of course, that's who those pics remind me of! I used to have a big crush on Dennis Quaid when I was about 12 grin


piratecat Mon 23-Jun-14 22:34:54

something about the fullness of his face with his eyes that's reminding me of Jack Nicolson too.

or is that just me.

Cumberlover76 Tue 24-Jun-14 12:48:35

Hi all, yet again RL has got in the way and this tread has fallen off my radar, unbelievable! He's looking much plumper at the mo, i do prefer him more on the skinny side but loving the hair. He's also sooo sexy as Turing, can't wait to see the film.

He're a little pic for you all doing what looks like the lovely lip bite thing, mmmm delicious wink

And also one to remind us of those lovely cheekbones.

Who knows? He might be using plumpers - I haven't heard any recorded dialogue, so it's hard to tell. But it could also be the food. Lord knows you can't walk 50 feet in New England without hitting a Dunkin Donuts. grin

Sudename Tue 24-Jun-14 13:59:58

I wonder is he bulking up for Yellow Birds? Will Poulter his Co star said that was the next thing he'd be filming. It is possible I suppose

HRHsherlockssextoy Tue 24-Jun-14 15:20:57

I'll try to find the actual pic of the bulgy bloke.

I haven't seen this pic though. I like him beefier. Sherlock a bit too thin.

HRHsherlockssextoy Tue 24-Jun-14 15:33:05


HRHsherlockssextoy Tue 24-Jun-14 20:51:35

I have tried to copy this but won't let me


RiverTam Tue 24-Jun-14 21:16:19

ooh, definitely a fan of SkinnyBatch here (well, except when he's being Khaaaaaaaaaaaaan), not liking these at all! Begone, plumpers!

Sudename Tue 24-Jun-14 21:25:58

A few oldies

OnlyLovers Wed 25-Jun-14 09:34:07

Thinner the better for me. My favourite incarnation is in Third Star when he's wasting away from terminal Hollywood disease. blush

HRHsherlockssextoy Wed 25-Jun-14 15:50:02

I know it's a daily fail link but they are nice photos

blackmass photos

Love the sideburns

Sudename Wed 25-Jun-14 16:25:11

He's gorgeous in the second picture

HRHsherlockssextoy Wed 25-Jun-14 18:32:34

The eyes!

Cumberlover76 Wed 25-Jun-14 20:17:44

Yes, that second picture is gorgeous. I love him!

SciFiFan Thu 26-Jun-14 17:42:58

I'm another Skinny Batch lover here though I make a definite exception for Khan.

Here are a few more retro piccies.

HRHsherlockssextoy Thu 26-Jun-14 21:31:27

Lovely shot

RiverTam Thu 26-Jun-14 21:36:57

that third one is yum, SciFi

Sudename Thu 26-Jun-14 21:45:22

They're all yum mmmm
I read Kevin Bacon has signed for Black Mass as well. He'll play an fbi agent. Sorry can't do links from my phone

HRHsherlockssextoy Fri 27-Jun-14 08:48:30

Love Kevin bacon, even those ads. I only watched footloose recently.

This is nice from twitter but in french. Lots of good pics

1001 I don't think that would take all day what a day that would be

Sudename Fri 27-Jun-14 17:39:30

I only see 11 pics on that link.
Anyway he looks beautiful in the 12 years a slave pic

HRHsherlockssextoy Sat 28-Jun-14 13:47:27

That's the french for you.

Says 1001 then only 11.

There's a benedict fundraiser on cumberbatch web for his birthday coming shortly. Seems a great thing to do rather than cards and gifts. I'm a bit too old for all of that anyway.

Sudename Sat 28-Jun-14 21:26:49

A nice one I think
Hope ye are enjoying the weekend

Cumberlover76 Sat 28-Jun-14 21:31:33

Gorgeous Sude, all good here. Few beers have been had and DH has now gone off to the pub so deciding what cumberporn to watch. Bit pissef for a full film so maybe some YouTubeing.

HRHsherlockssextoy Sat 28-Jun-14 21:40:11

cumberlover youtube is my fav thing, next to tumblr.....

Love pic sude

sexy sherlock

From MTV , there's scarf ripping , Molly kissing, much sherlock stuff.

I have a soft spot for you repel me.

RiverTam Sat 28-Jun-14 21:41:41

having a lovely time here, went to a fair at DD's soon-to-be-new-primary which was great, met lots of people we know so she won't be without friends when she starts. And she went on her first donkey ride! She looked so proud of herself, bless her.

Dh is in bed with manflu, just watched a Breaking Bad, not sure what's next (just rewatched all of Sherlock so not that!).

HRHsherlockssextoy Sat 28-Jun-14 22:18:51


RiverTam Sat 28-Jun-14 22:45:47

good call HRH! Glad to see the boys are on board...

RiverTam Sat 28-Jun-14 23:24:07

awesome. Don't often say this about Glasto but wish I was there!

annielewis Sat 28-Jun-14 23:43:13

I'm baaaaaack!!! What did I miss??? Loads of new yummy pics by the look of it and a whole new thread!

Why is he so damn busy?? I need him bored and hanging out in hampstead please!!!!

You're right whoever described this as hotel California! I'm always on my phone and 'I'm on' threads disappear way too fast!!

Any news in barbican tickets yet?

HRHsherlockssextoy Sun 29-Jun-14 10:22:42

annietickets on sale start of August.


HRHsherlockssextoy Sun 29-Jun-14 12:27:13

I don't want you all to burn up in a hot mess but there will be a benedict calendar coming out for next year.

It is like being 13 again isn't it.

Pillows check. Big poster check. Fleece blanket check. Calendar? Come on!

HRHsherlockssextoy Sun 29-Jun-14 12:29:17

Here's the link

mr July anyone?

Sudename Sun 29-Jun-14 14:07:38

Ooh will be on my Christmas list

HRHsherlockssextoy Sun 29-Jun-14 14:30:44

I'm ordering 12....

All going on today
Martin was on Andrew marr and in the telegraph about Richard III
deep breath
He says there will be no series 4 of sherlock

Only a Xmas special. I guess everybody is so busy. Damn you cumberbatch for being so good at your job.

RiverTam Sun 29-Jun-14 17:55:10


HRHsherlockssextoy Sun 29-Jun-14 19:17:08

Ease your pain

That finger

RiverTam Sun 29-Jun-14 20:15:10

that hair! If DH hadn't just walked in the room I might have growled slightly.

Sudename Sun 29-Jun-14 21:01:14

"Sigh" he's just so beautiful

piratecat Sun 29-Jun-14 22:08:11

he's so lithe on that piccy. lithe fingers. sigh.

Cumberlover76 Mon 30-Jun-14 11:04:12

Yes Sude he is soo beautiful. I have to look at pictures of him everyday. How about this.

RiverTam Mon 30-Jun-14 11:07:53

hey, we're in Active Convos!

Cumberlover76 Mon 30-Jun-14 11:13:32

Quick, keep posting!

Sudename Mon 30-Jun-14 11:17:25

Hello ladies

RiverTam Mon 30-Jun-14 11:38:13

ooh, always like a bit of smokingBatch.

If HRH is around - d'you know if MF being playing Richard III at the matinees? Think I might go by myself as a treat but don't want to not get him, if that makes sense.

Sudename Mon 30-Jun-14 11:39:41

Lets keep us in active convos

HRHsherlockssextoy Mon 30-Jun-14 12:40:25

As far as I know yes re: Martin freeman, I'm going to a matinee.

It actually sounds pretty good listening to him talking about it yesterday on Andrew marr

Sudename Mon 30-Jun-14 13:33:14

Oh HRH what a fab pic

OnlyLovers Mon 30-Jun-14 13:43:21

Does it often happen that the star of a play doesn't do the matinees? shock [naive]

RiverTam Mon 30-Jun-14 14:00:42

well, that's what I wasn't sure about Only, though obviously I could actually ring the theatre and ask blush - I thought it might make me sound really shallow which I totally am and only interested in MF also true. Haven't been to the theatre in donkey's years. Still dithering over Richard Armitage in The Crucible, I actually really dislike the play but, y'know - it's Thorin!!

Thanks HRH - for the info and the pic - those eyes <wibble>.

Sudename Mon 30-Jun-14 14:09:13

Can't do links from my phone but he was out and about in Boston last night at some Italian restaurant with cast and crew members. He was sporting the glasses and flat cap look. Wish he'd ditch the hats and let the Cumber curls free though

OnlyLovers Mon 30-Jun-14 14:45:53

You could email them - less embarrassing? - but let's be honest, you won't be the only one asking them shallow questions :-)

But is it really a thing that a star actor doesn't do all the performances (illness and stuff aside)? I've never heard of that.

Sudename, you mean this? Oh god, I know those places. YUM.

RiverTam Mon 30-Jun-14 14:53:36

I'd leave the canoli and just have Benedict.

A quick skip through Pinterest threw up these 2 lovelies.

I'll just swallow my pride, Only, not that I have much...!

HRHsherlockssextoy Mon 30-Jun-14 15:27:02

rivertam I so want to go to the crucible

I have seen it years ago and it was so long.... Mr a takes off his shirt.

Sudename Mon 30-Jun-14 15:50:12

Two from Pinterest my new best friend wink

HRHsherlockssextoy Mon 30-Jun-14 17:27:37

Don't get me started on Pinterest , I could spend most of the day rubbing my thighs against the computer. I love it.

This is funny. Yes mr C you were fabulous in fifth element but stid, totally wrong. They should have picked martin freeman

how to be b cumbs friend

Great, now I want a jet-ski. In my bedroom.

Sudename Mon 30-Jun-14 20:14:25

I'd rather BC in mine wink

SciFiFan Mon 30-Jun-14 21:50:03

Love the vid, agree with Sudename I'd rather have BC than the jet ski grin

Cumberlover76 Mon 30-Jun-14 21:51:03

I like the thigh rubbing on the jet ski.

Sude, I'll tell him to head over when he's finished in my bedroom grin! He may be some time though wink

annielewis Mon 30-Jun-14 22:10:44

Am off to my laptop so I can see all the pics, they're not showing up on my phone!

Thanks for the ticket info for hamlet- is there a meet up/coordinated ticketing planned?? grin

Sudename Mon 30-Jun-14 22:12:23

Don't wear him out now Cumber wink

HRHsherlockssextoy Mon 30-Jun-14 22:40:22

Tight blue trouser alert reminds me of this, which does funny things to me.

I'm loving gingerbatch more than I should

Sudename Mon 30-Jun-14 23:18:03

Love him in blue - makes his eyes pop.
that second picture is fab HRH

I was speaking metaphorically. To be blunt, I want to check the motion of his ocean. That animation reminded me of the War Horse gifs of him riding in slow motion.

Sudename Tue 01-Jul-14 12:24:14

Benedicts face and emotions

This is kinda of funny

RiverTam Tue 01-Jul-14 12:29:27

love those, Sudename.

I'm going to spend lunchtime looking for War Horse gifs, I want to see that man ride!

Sudename Tue 01-Jul-14 12:57:28

I love the scarf ripping gif RAWR
There's some fab gifs on tumblr from the making of little favour. I must have a hunt for them after lunch

Sudename Tue 01-Jul-14 16:37:07

Little Favour Behind the Scenes

I know some of you prefer skinny Batch but Holy Mother of all that's Devine check out that body!

FrankelandFilly Wed 02-Jul-14 08:31:30

Hello all, long time no see! All is well with me and DD, she's 16 weeks old now shock

Just wanted to make you all aware that there is some sort of Sherlock reveal happening at 2.21pm today (d'ya see what they did there wink) It's Moriarty connected as the tag line for the reveal is "Did you miss me?", along with a picture of the man himself. Exciting!

Sudename Wed 02-Jul-14 10:18:34

Lovely to see you back frankel
Can't believe dd is 16 weeks she must be so cute

mkmjimmy Wed 02-Jul-14 11:53:19
Cumberlover76 Wed 02-Jul-14 11:57:53

Hello Frankel wow, 16 weeks! My DD is now 2y4m and i have no idea where it has gone. Are you getting on ok?

Ooooh, exciting announcement, where did you see that?

Sude, he is yummy, yummy in Little Favour, sooooo fit and mucky and fighty!

Themissis Wed 02-Jul-14 12:19:08

Hello, may I please join you all? I am waaay to old for all of this Cumberlove but honestly, those cheekbones and eyes!!! I am old enough to remember his mum in UFO for goodness sake!!

My youngest daughter and I saw him at Oz Comic-con in Sydney and just wow!! I'm gibbering now but would love to join in...

FrankelandFilly Wed 02-Jul-14 12:59:49

The announcement stuff has been on Twitter, but not sure if the reveal is online or on the tv.

DD is very cute <biased> We're doing ok now after a few hiccups, it's been tough with DH away but we're pressing on and looking forward to getting him home for a few weeks in September.

Cumberlover76 Wed 02-Jul-14 14:26:08

For those who've not seen Twitter yet -

Shooting on the #Sherlock special will begin in January 2015, with the series shooting later next year. #221back

Cumberlover76 Wed 02-Jul-14 14:26:47

oooh more sexy Sherlock, yummy, that means he'll be growing his hair and getting all skinny, nice!

PrincessTheresaofLiechtenstein Wed 02-Jul-14 14:26:57

New series of Sherlock AND a special next year - special starts shooting Jan 2015

PrincessTheresaofLiechtenstein Wed 02-Jul-14 14:28:29

X post! Am wondering what this means for Lost City of Z? Was meant to shoot in Jan.

mkmjimmy Wed 02-Jul-14 14:41:42

Yeah! Love him as Sherlock - and also think it's a great show obviously....yes that too, obviously....

Cumberlover76 Wed 02-Jul-14 14:46:26

in all the excitement, forgot to say welcome to Themissis. Hello, of course you can join us. Feel free to trek back through the threads for plenty of Cumberporn.

Yes, Cumberlover" Saw this on my FB feed from the Sherlock page:

Did you miss us?

We can confirm that ‪#‎Sherlock‬ will be back with a special followed by a series of three new episodes!

Shooting on the special will begin in January 2015, with the series shooting later next year. The game is on! ‪#‎221back

annielewis Wed 02-Jul-14 15:46:36

Oooh -was just coming on here to make sure you'd all heard the news - I was a bit slow on the uptake today - darn kids are taking all my attention!!! grin

Has anyone been and seen them filming? Bet its going to be manic and full of screaming girls.... smile

Cumberlover76 Wed 02-Jul-14 15:49:29

.... and screaming middle aged women (well nearly, i'm 37) annie wink!

HRH - it's our chance, lets get on it! Jan will be a bit chilly for shaved for Sherlock only though. Hmmm, the vodka could help though!

annielewis Wed 02-Jul-14 16:23:12

Haha - vodka and Sherlock, what could possibly go wrong...... (i'm 37 too)

Sudename Wed 02-Jul-14 17:15:56

I'm 47 and would love me some vodka and Sherlock wink

HRHsherlockssextoy Wed 02-Jul-14 17:28:35

Well, I'm originally from Cardiff so I know all the spots...
Sherlock can come and stay with me in my house. And vodka.

And the dark curly hair

Sudename Wed 02-Jul-14 18:12:29

We'll be on hair watch now lol

HRHsherlockssextoy Fri 04-Jul-14 10:20:47

It's been too long, you said
Here I say have a new pic

HRHsherlockssextoy Fri 04-Jul-14 11:30:50

I haven't seen this either

Sudename Fri 04-Jul-14 11:46:51

Ooh very nice HRH
Any idea how long more he'll be in Boston for

Sudename Fri 04-Jul-14 12:02:11
Sudename Fri 04-Jul-14 12:15:48
HRHsherlockssextoy Fri 04-Jul-14 20:20:26

All lovely sude

I wonder if they'll do the bedding in king size?

Downton woman looks preggers in that dress. I recognise the blonde.

Sudename Sat 05-Jul-14 16:20:31

Love his facial expression in this one

SciFiFan Sat 05-Jul-14 16:57:25

Some Khan Mmmhmmm the third one where he's running is just.....yum grin

Sudename Sat 05-Jul-14 17:09:59

God he was smoking hot in that film Scififan
Wonder if they'll defrost him for the third Star Trek film

SugarFinney Sat 05-Jul-14 22:48:00

Shame he's in Boston and not at Silverstone Grand Prix this weekend - DH, DS1, DS2 and DD's boyfriend are all there and I was hoping for some gratuitous second hand sightings!

Sudename Sat 05-Jul-14 22:49:34

Maybe he'll pay a flying visit? doubtful though

SciFiFan Sun 06-Jul-14 11:16:07

Agree Sudename. He's ruined any future Star Trek movies for me if he isn't in them grin

Sudename Mon 07-Jul-14 12:22:22

Hi ladies Monday again sad
A nice pic to cheer ye up

HRHsherlockssextoy Mon 07-Jul-14 12:22:33

What's happened? No b pics or stories over the weekend. Pah! Wanted to see him dressed up in some American garb marching with his baton.

I'm surviving on tumblr

Sudename Mon 07-Jul-14 14:15:51

Yah no sightings at all. He better get that lovely ass back out and about soon

HRHsherlockssextoy Mon 07-Jul-14 19:06:13

Something nice for today

feed come up and make me smile

RiverTam Tue 08-Jul-14 08:34:13

I quite like 'less is more' with BC - when there are pics every day I feel like my lust is being a bit - diluted. Does that make sense?

At the mo I am being overwhelmed by pics of RA in the Crucible. Still dithering about getting tickets, no cheap ones left (or for Richard III). 3 and a half hours, though, I dunno.

Sudename Tue 08-Jul-14 14:47:05

Rivertam I am the opposite and find myself looking at pictures everyday!

mumtosome61 Tue 08-Jul-14 14:52:22

Sudename I bloody hope they unfrost him for Star Trek 3 or woteva. I have to admit Cumberbatch as Khan is my favourite character perving, looks only obviously!

I banned myself from Tumblr.

Cumberlover76 Tue 08-Jul-14 22:19:48

Hello all, soz, been away perving at cyclists. My other love, the tour de France has been monopolising my time along with a poohy toddler, nice! Any other tdf fans on here?

Sudename Wed 09-Jul-14 12:27:18

BC in Dunlop advert

A bit silly but enjoyable- he looks mightly fine though

HRHsherlockssextoy Wed 09-Jul-14 16:19:15

Sir, I have packed your denim shirts. The butler doesn't ask why

The end

SciFiFan Wed 09-Jul-14 19:28:08

Cumberlover for you. Why not combine your passions for BC and cyclists grin

RiverTam Wed 09-Jul-14 21:33:24

that was indeed very fine and extremely daft.

Sudename Wed 09-Jul-14 23:53:29

And 4 more adverts in the series rivertam

Cumberlover76 Thu 10-Jul-14 13:03:26

Yummy, yummy SciFi grin

Mr b has been nominated for Emmy today

BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH'S official reaction to his EMMY Nomination
'A fantastic early birthday present! Can't wait to come and sweat on the
red carpet, applaud everyone else winning. And then get drunk and dance!

He can come and sweat over me if he'd like

HRHsherlockssextoy Thu 10-Jul-14 18:14:35

Something to sweat over

Sudename Thu 10-Jul-14 18:27:40

Oh goodness getting sweaty with BC. I'm all in a tizzy now with filthy mental images of a sweaty Mr C

HRHsherlockssextoy Thu 10-Jul-14 18:50:55

sude that is an image isn't it?

I'm actually sure he wouldn't like to sweat over me but I'd like it, and of course that's the only thing that matters

HRHsherlockssextoy Thu 10-Jul-14 18:51:05

HRHsherlockssextoy Thu 10-Jul-14 18:52:44

I have no idea why that's come up 4 times, it wouldn't load a photo

I'm not sure it was worth repeating that many times but hey

Sudename Thu 10-Jul-14 18:53:15

Think all that sweat talk has you in a tizzy HRH wink

Sudename Thu 10-Jul-14 19:01:38

A few oldies to sweat over

Sudename Thu 10-Jul-14 19:02:43

Sudename Thu 10-Jul-14 19:04:59

Ah feck I'm at it now lol

RiverTam Thu 10-Jul-14 20:08:37

clearly the idea of BC in a sweat has sent even inanimate objects into a spin wink

HRHsherlockssextoy Thu 10-Jul-14 20:23:02

Made me laugh this!

Cumberlover76 Thu 10-Jul-14 21:18:00

Calm down ladies and take a cold shower ......... wink

Cumberlover76 Thu 10-Jul-14 21:19:43

Ben to appear at the San Diego comicon on 24th July to promote Penguins of Madagascar

Sudename Sat 12-Jul-14 15:17:18

Hi hope your having a nice weekend.
Haven't seen this pic before

HRHsherlockssextoy Mon 14-Jul-14 09:22:17

Because I don't want this to drop off have a pic!

Rumours that he will be confirmed as dr strange at comic con.

Sudename Mon 14-Jul-14 11:32:36

Another one to keep the thread active.
He was apparently snapped at Boston airport yesterday so wonder where he's off to as comicon is week after next

Oh crap! Does that mean I'm going to miss him? Flying over with the kids on Wednesday. DAMN!

Sudename Mon 14-Jul-14 11:52:44

Maybe not as I read he's in Boston till 22nd


Sudename Mon 14-Jul-14 13:52:42

You'll be on a mission so Needsagreencard wink

Oh, I will be so sexy, he won't know what to do with himself. Overtired, dehydrated, two whiny kids in tow (because jet lag brings out the best in all of us, esp. when you land at 8 pm local time and the kids think it's 2 am), he won't be able to control himself. He'll be in negotiations with my mother on who gets to drive me home. HA!

Am in a severe moral dilemma -- stalk (and be creepy) or not stalk and be grumpy because we're roughly in the same city and yet I will never see him? Isn't Wednesday his birthday? I doubt I'll be up for a night on the town... sigh

But if I do run across him, I promise I'll try really REALLY hard not to fangirl, because, at 41, that would look a little silly.


OK, I'm done now. Thanks for bearing with me.

HRHsherlockssextoy Mon 14-Jul-14 17:46:45

If I was you greencard, I would go

Because you never know not to stalk though at 41 that would be weird but you will always wonder won't you?!

Saturday is his birthday not that I know that much

Sudename Mon 14-Jul-14 17:48:43

Please stalk so I can live vicariously through you lol

HRHsherlockssextoy Mon 14-Jul-14 21:36:16

Haven't seen this

HRHsherlockssextoy Mon 14-Jul-14 21:38:04

Haven't seen this

There was a poor girl on twitter, I think who recorded her conversation with him, her mother was a sound person on the penguin film he's in and told everyone about it. It was pulled, prob her mother would have had a telling off.

So apparently he's playing tourist...

I remember when those paintings were taken; I think I was 17 at the time and still at school. It's hard to believe they never found them.

The courtyard is still one of my favourite places to relax...

HRHsherlockssextoy Tue 15-Jul-14 22:30:05

I don't want to disappoint you green card but somebody wrote on twitter that he was at the old vic to watch the crucible.
But that might not be true. Of course.

Sudename Tue 15-Jul-14 22:42:59

Well sadly for Needsagreencard Ben appears to be back in London was seen at The Crucible this evening

HRHsherlockssextoy Wed 16-Jul-14 09:03:54

sude we are both as sad as one another...

Sudename Wed 16-Jul-14 12:06:33

Yep lol

Balls! Am currently in transit, now waiting at the gate. Just passed a fancy guy on the moving sidewalk wearing what appears to be the same sparkly shoes Benedict has been seen wearing.

Something tells me that's going to be the extent of my proximity to the Batch.

HRHsherlockssextoy Wed 16-Jul-14 18:15:35

Dull but wow, he eats

crabby Tuesday

I saw a fb page saying someone shook his hand in London yesterday, gosh I bet he cannot contain himself with all the excitement he fame brings him.

Cumberlover76 Wed 16-Jul-14 21:25:30

Hello all, sorry been absent. You'd fallen off my threads again but luckily I know where to find you at the top of sleb twaddle! I'm off work for a couple of days home alone so look forward to indulging in a bit of Cumberworship ��

Sudename Wed 16-Jul-14 22:31:43

Have we had this pic before?
Dunno but it's a nice one though

HRHsherlockssextoy Thu 17-Jul-14 09:05:02

greencard the cumberfairies, have blessed you

Filming in Boston yesterday

Sudename Thu 17-Jul-14 10:38:54

Has he a teleporter or something lol
He sure must have some air miles clocked up

Sudename, I assume that he must have loads of miles - he probably flies first class. And I also assume that the production company is paying for his flights to the set, so... Or he worked something out with JJ Abrams after the Trek movie, so he might have access to technology we don't. Ha!

No sighting of yet, then again, we went directly from the airport (after a terrible, horrible, no-good entry - they now have these ridiculous kiosks for border control - my 5 y.o. was too short to be recognised by the camera so I had to hoist him up, and then he whacked his head on the thing on the way back into line - all in all, it took over an hour to get to our bags) to my mother's house. Kids have been awake off and on since 2:30 am. Ugh.

But breakfast was made brighter by Mom laying out a clipping from the paper of Benedict filming the parade scene. I love how my mother enables me!!!

Just found this and had to share.

Sudename Thu 17-Jul-14 14:33:42

Glad you arrived safely Needsagreencard
That link is funny.
Here is a pic of the Batch at Fenway Park. Is it me or does he look
(a) sweaty
(b) look like he spilled something on his shirt

OnlyLovers Thu 17-Jul-14 16:43:33

HRH, thanks for the restaurant story! But

'he had his first-ever cannoli'. Really? Really!?! How can you get to 37, and live in a big city with a lot of Italian cafes, and have a sweet tooth, and not have had cannoli before?

It has been disgustingly hot and humid in Boston the past few days. There were very strong thunderstorms yesterday with flash flooding; we luckily missed it coming in.

So my vote is for sweaty. Let the imaginations run wild! ;)

HRHsherlockssextoy Thu 17-Jul-14 18:25:40

Don't start me off on sweaty, you know what happens

HRHsherlockssextoy Thu 17-Jul-14 18:26:05

Know what happens

Sudename Thu 17-Jul-14 18:58:50

A picture of snow Batch to cool us down

HRHsherlockssextoy Thu 17-Jul-14 20:21:56

I was just about the get in a tither about the high life pics when I googled and found these

Haven't seen these

Is it hot today? Or is it me or him?

Sudename Thu 17-Jul-14 21:06:03

It is very hot today as is he

HRHsherlockssextoy Thu 17-Jul-14 22:15:34

To quote the great nelly

Its gettin hot in here (so hot)
So take off all your clothes

I am gettin so hot, I wanna take my clothes off

Sudename Fri 18-Jul-14 10:04:43

Just checking - still hot

Cumberlover76 Fri 18-Jul-14 12:23:32

Oh, he's sooooo hot........

Sudename Fri 18-Jul-14 12:46:09

Oh Greece Batch so hot cumberlover
I give you gratuitous butt shot batch

HRHsherlockssextoy Fri 18-Jul-14 13:30:28

I was going to link to greekbatch... So unkempt, dreamy

Have gratuitous shirt shot instead

Cumberlover76 Fri 18-Jul-14 14:02:34

He has one fine ass grin

Sudename Fri 18-Jul-14 14:18:18

Oh cumberlover indeed he has grin
I'll throw in tight pants Batch

The worst part of jet lag is when the kids wake up at 4 am and interrupt a lovely Batch dream. Seriously, I haven't had one in MONTHS, and it was just starting to get hot good, and then I hear my monkeys chattering away in the next room (this house's walls are paper-thin).

So thanks to HRH, Sudename and Cumberlover for those photos, I needed them this morning.

Cumberlover76 Fri 18-Jul-14 14:41:27

Oh Khan <swoons>!

So utterly delicious.

HRHsherlockssextoy Fri 18-Jul-14 20:20:55

Oh good god

If it's not hot enough


Sudename Fri 18-Jul-14 20:21:35

Holy Hannah of hotness - just love this one wink

Sudename Fri 18-Jul-14 20:23:11

Just saw your link hrh Oh he's just so fecking hot

Cumberlover76 Fri 18-Jul-14 21:33:03

Hot, hot, hot, think I need a cold shower...... Oh, you want me to soap you up Benedict.... OK..... wink ( nothing wrong with looking at this again!)

Swex Fri 18-Jul-14 21:45:08

I'm a lurker. But felt moved to comment on his bottom! Very nice....

Cumberlover76 Fri 18-Jul-14 22:10:32

Hello Swex you are more than welcome to comment on the fineness of the Cumberbum, it is indeed a thing of beauty and moves me in many ways!

Sudename Fri 18-Jul-14 22:24:42

He has the most fab bum swex you could bounce a 5p piece off it

SciFiFan Fri 18-Jul-14 22:28:54

He's smokin' hot!

Swex Fri 18-Jul-14 22:58:25

Why thank you ladies (you may be gentlemen too!). I cannot reach your heights of fandom but I do admire him from afar!

piratecat Sat 19-Jul-14 06:14:52

smile happy birthday Benedict

38 today. x x

Cumberlover76 Sat 19-Jul-14 08:08:53

The obsessives on twitter are trying to get happy birthday trending or something. Wonder what he's doing to celebrate? Birthday suit anyone?

Sudename Sat 19-Jul-14 09:34:26

Happy Birthday beautiful boy cake wine

Cumberlover76 Sat 19-Jul-14 09:48:39

I love that pic Sude he is so beautiful <sighs>

Sudename Sat 19-Jul-14 12:55:26

dorky baby batch

Still cute though

SciFiFan Sat 19-Jul-14 19:17:28

I think those Dorkybatch pictures just go to prove that some people improve with age - youth isn't everything grin.

Sudename Sat 19-Jul-14 20:46:47

Yes scififan I feel that men get more attractive when they hit their late 30s early 40s. It's like they grow onto their faces or something.

SugarFinney Sat 19-Jul-14 20:57:59

We have been away this week with no Wi-Fi so I've just caught up with all the week's posts. So many lovely pics I've come over all light-headed. Happy birthday Benedict wine

Cumberlover76 Sun 20-Jul-14 17:23:43

Oh, he has definitely got note gorgeous with age. Just been drooling over all the birthday Tumblr posts. Couple of nice ones here./

Cumberlover76 Sun 20-Jul-14 17:24:19

Should obvs read more gorgeous.

HRHsherlockssextoy Sun 20-Jul-14 19:11:01

A photo given from yesterday, looks a bit manic to me but still lovely

FrankelandFilly Sun 20-Jul-14 19:33:35

Hello all, just seen this compilation of pictures. It includes some of my personal favs grin

Hi Frankel! Lovely link!

I just came back from 5 hours in downtown Boston with my kids, but no sign of our hero. Does anyone know if he's even still here?

Sudename Sun 20-Jul-14 22:44:06

Oh very nice frankel
Think he is in the UK Needsagreencard

Sudename Sun 20-Jul-14 23:15:37

Argh I just saw a tweet saying Ben celebrated his birthday in Dublin. Why didn't I know I'd have been there like a flash

Sudename Mon 21-Jul-14 10:43:23

Ben measures up for wax work figure

Lucky the ones that got to take all the measurements grin

FrankelandFilly Mon 21-Jul-14 15:37:15
HRHsherlockssextoy Mon 21-Jul-14 17:49:05

It's ok frankel we understand. Is he sweaty in it? Are you feeling hot?

It seems a common affliction on here the repeat postings.


Daily mail article about the wax work. I haven't been to tussards in years. Might visit again.

I'm strangely unexcited about the tig thing. It's a long way off.

Is it ok to be a little pissed off with him? No photo for his birthday or anything, just second hand messages of thank you, which is lovely but over £20,000 was raised just because of him. I wanted more. But I guess we all want more.

RiverTam Mon 21-Jul-14 21:32:44

hi everyone, just back from our holiday at the weekend, not happy to be back in horrible boiling London, that's for sure, but lots of lovely birthday pics.

That trailer looks amazing (and like Benedict and Keira are trying to out-elocute each other smile). Can't wait, I need some actual screen Benedict in my life sooner rather than later!

Sudename Mon 21-Jul-14 23:20:09

Trailers look great. I'm really looking forward to seeing the film.
Loads of gifs already thanks to the kind folks on tumblr.


I'm finding this running gif strangely hypnotic. . .

HRHsherlockssextoy Tue 22-Jul-14 20:19:08

Yes hypnotic,and no pants. Side to side, side to side

HRH,damn it, I wasn't even looking there before you mentioned that, and now that's all I see. It distracting me from the loosey-goosey wrists and god-awful fashion sense.

HRHsherlockssextoy Tue 22-Jul-14 21:50:18

You are feeling sleepy....Side to side, side to side.
Yes mr batch I will do as you say
you want me to do that? Yes.
Side to side

Have I been a bad bad girl Mr Cumberbatch?

Oh very bad. . .

Sudename Wed 23-Jul-14 17:52:00

In LA with Colin Firth - as you do

This made me giggle.

Hope all of you are well!

thinkineed2admit Wed 23-Jul-14 20:34:56

I'm hearing you on needing some proper onscreen benedict action soon! v looking forward to the imitation game!

...had my third BC dream recently. rolls eyes at self that is def a record.

Sudename Wed 23-Jul-14 22:04:01

Hope it was a good dream thinkineed wink

HRHsherlockssextoy Thu 24-Jul-14 19:22:28

Good lord!
Comic con pics going on now

HRHsherlockssextoy Thu 24-Jul-14 19:32:17

I think I need to be in San Diego

Cumberlover76 Thu 24-Jul-14 21:18:05

Ooooh he's looking H.O.T. HRH!!

Bit tanned, verrrrrrrr sexy grin

Sudename Thu 24-Jul-14 22:19:06

Just in from choir practice and looking at comic con pics and videos. DAMN he looks hawt

HRHsherlockssextoy Thu 24-Jul-14 22:20:59

What about this one

Sudename Thu 24-Jul-14 22:21:51

I think we all need to be in San Diego

FrankelandFilly Thu 24-Jul-14 22:23:25

Not many men can be called sexy when standing next to a giant penguin grin Surely it's a crime to look THAT hot <fans self>

Sudename Thu 24-Jul-14 22:36:11

Hi frankel how are you?
He's freaking adorable and sexy at the same time - how does he do it not that I'm complaining

PrincessTheresaofLiechtenstein Thu 24-Jul-14 22:53:23

The dark blue shirt is very nice on him. I would very much like to help him out of it.

Sudename Thu 24-Jul-14 23:26:57

Hi princess I see sexy comic con Batch has us all posting. That blue is lovely on him

Sudename Thu 24-Jul-14 23:37:40

Another one if the lovely shirt

Cumberlover76 Fri 25-Jul-14 07:20:45

Yes, soooo very lovely in these pics. That shirt does really suit him. I'm with you Princess on wanting to help him out of it! Sorry not posted many pics recently, RL has been far too busy! Enjoying all the posts though..

HRHsherlockssextoy Fri 25-Jul-14 14:32:33

Some videos


HRHsherlockssextoy Fri 25-Jul-14 14:33:44

And the one if the panel

comic con

If there anything he's bad at? <wonders>

RiverTam Fri 25-Jul-14 15:28:55

ooh, I shall have to watch the videos tonight. DH is feeling under the weather, perhaps I can shunt him off to bed early, I'm feeling a Khan moment coming on (I don't actually have much BC on DVD so have to make the most of what I have!).

a quick straw poll for those gearing up to buy Hamlet tickets - how much would you spend on a ticket (not including your membership) - I'm buying for me and 3 others, me and the other big BC fan will pay top whack, the other 2 don't want to go much over £40/50. Barbican haven't released ticket prices (and do you get a membership discount?). I do want a decent view (obviously!) but I don't really know how much they might go up to and I can't really justify loads!

RiverTam Fri 25-Jul-14 15:38:40

if he looked at me like this I think I might have an orgasm on the spot.

RiverTam Fri 25-Jul-14 15:39:21


HRHsherlockssextoy Fri 25-Jul-14 17:48:51

New one, I think my fav. He is looking at you like that

SugarFinney Fri 25-Jul-14 21:05:17

Wow, BlueShirtBatch - my new current fave. Liking the slight tan too. He's looking very relaxed in all these pics.

Sudename Fri 25-Jul-14 22:33:02

God he's beautiful sigh

I was dipping in and out of twitter yesterday and it appears he had a ball at comic con. He was bouncing around like an adorable puppy lol. Love the John Barrowman clip

Sudename Sun 27-Jul-14 13:42:49

Another lovely one

HRHsherlockssextoy Sun 27-Jul-14 18:37:19

Another one

Sudename Sun 27-Jul-14 19:18:50

Comic Con was just a Cumberfest of loveliness for us ladies sigh

HRHsherlockssextoy Mon 28-Jul-14 09:40:01

This is from MTV

comic con

This made the 11 year old me smile. I loved mj fox and back to the future. Just proves nothing changes in 20 odd years.

Sudename Mon 28-Jul-14 10:06:54

Did anyone catch Ben on itv this morning with Lorraine?

RiverTam Mon 28-Jul-14 16:54:49

another slo-o-o-w day at work, so I just had to fill the time trawling the interweb for Comic Con pics. Well, I trawled Cumberbatch Coffee Klatch's tumblr...

for your delectation... (I've put in the one with Orlando and Lee just because I heart Lee)

RiverTam Mon 28-Jul-14 16:56:39

I noticed a lot of thigh rubbing during his MTV interview, which was most enjoyable.


ABlandAndDeadlyCourtesy Mon 28-Jul-14 16:57:50

Am only a Cumberdabbler, but love your thread title!

RiverTam Mon 28-Jul-14 17:03:46

why, thank you, I pinched it from the Guardian website.

may I take this opportunity to encourage you to stop dabbling and jump right in for a good old wallow?

ABlandAndDeadlyCourtesy Mon 28-Jul-14 17:06:00


I fancy Sherlock but BC less so. I may not be allowed into the thread!

deepest Mon 28-Jul-14 17:07:33

My 12 year old daughter worked with him in this film -- to be released sometime in Nov - trailer below:

RiverTam Mon 28-Jul-14 17:09:20

oooh, lucky her! What was she doing, was she an extra? It looks great, can't wait.

doesn't matter if you love BC, Sherlock, Khan or the whole boiling lot - you're very welcome!

Sudename Mon 28-Jul-14 18:01:40

Welcome aboard the Cumbertrain new posters ;)

ABlandAndDeadlyCourtesy Mon 28-Jul-14 18:14:05

Is BC doing Richard III too or did I get that wrong?

OnlyLovers Mon 28-Jul-14 19:09:48

No, you're right, he is. On telly. Yay!

ABlandAndDeadlyCourtesy Mon 28-Jul-14 19:56:59

RiverTam Mon 28-Jul-14 22:08:25

oh look, I've just looked back at the last page properly (think I must have been on my phone for that page) and realised that half the pics I posted earlier are already there blush. I'm all of a fluster, is all (definitely channeling John Barrowman).

Sudename Tue 29-Jul-14 00:05:30

No bother Rivertam
Last week a had a few triple posts lol
He has us all a fluster -sigh-

OnlyLovers Tue 29-Jul-14 10:33:41

An oldie but a goodie

HRHsherlockssextoy Tue 29-Jul-14 21:26:05

That barrowman clip made me laugh. One degree of sep from the batch, I have actually talked to the barrowman.
Saw him whistling in Cardiff once being quite camp and dudn't realise it was him.

The first Gif. Oh my god. I've melted into a puddle of goo.

Sudename Tue 29-Jul-14 23:13:41

I have just joined you in a melted heap Needsagreencard
He's just divine smile

SciFiFan Tue 29-Jul-14 23:22:04

Move over in that puddle, coz that gif was.......mmmmmm.

So much good stuff coming out if ComiCon, so wish I could go.

HRHsherlockssextoy Wed 30-Jul-14 11:26:54

very lovely.

anyone buying tickets today? Best of luck! Hope there's some left for Monday...!

Sudename Fri 01-Aug-14 09:52:53

Lovely article.
Be very interesting to see how many tickets sell today

RiverTam Fri 01-Aug-14 10:12:25

3000 memberships taken out in the last few months! I know it's a whopper of a theatre and a long run but crikey, I'm glad I've forked out. Theatre-going friend who is going with me (amongst others, astonishing how popular I've become grin) said that, I think, King Lear (David Tennant?) sold out before the tickets went on general sale!!

Sudename Fri 01-Aug-14 10:24:16

Shite think I'll purchase a membership for Monday

HRHsherlockssextoy Fri 01-Aug-14 10:51:34

I'm 1000 in the queue, wondering whether better to ring

RiverTam Fri 01-Aug-14 11:32:11

I'm aiming to triangulate my purchase, involving at least 3 colleagues in the office, and possibly another couple elsewhere, though as I'm the one with the card I'm not really sure it's going to work grin. And we've just moved to a new office and the internet seems a bit slow <grrr>.

RiverTam Fri 01-Aug-14 11:33:30

the thing about doing it online is that you have to choose a specific performance, whereas I don't actually care when we go, any night is fine with us. So I'm thinking phoning is better?

FrankelandFilly Fri 01-Aug-14 11:51:07

From what I have read I think you're all pretty certain to get tickets. It is a big theatre and a fairly long run, plus they are putting in measures to stop people buying tickets for multiple performances.

They're also putting 100 tickets on the door every day if anyone fancies queuing! Just don't try for the start or end of the run!

FrankelandFilly Fri 01-Aug-14 11:58:02

This page has more information. Basically you are restricted to a maximum of 6 tickets across the whole run. The lead booker's name will be printed on all tickets and they have to be present (with ID) for the performance.

The run is over 3 months long with 7 performances per week plus the theatre holds over 1,100 people so that's a huge number of tickets.

RiverTam Fri 01-Aug-14 12:02:34

yes, they're being very hot on ticket touts, which is good. I didn't think you could get tickets for multiple performances, just that each member could buy 6, and that you'll be lucky if you want to swap performance at a later date.

Oooh, it's so exciting, I feel like a teenager trying to get Duran Duran tickets or summat. I still think I'll get tickets to The Crucible as well, oh and the cheap tickets for MF in RIII go on sale today.

Sudename Fri 01-Aug-14 12:47:16

Any idea if children pay full price. My dd will be 15 and is hoping to go with me

Cumberlover76 Fri 01-Aug-14 13:07:54

Just catching up with the comic con stuff as rl has been far too busy. OMFG his arms in that blue shirt, fucking gorgeous. That is all, i shall head back to youtube now!

Ps good luck with the ticket buying, i'm just going to have to see if there are any left when i have spare money sad

HRHsherlockssextoy Fri 01-Aug-14 13:28:15

I have my tickets. Closing night and a date in August


Went to see richard iii last week. It was good, I didn't get Margaret though... It's set in the winter of our discontent

Off to see crucible sept 10th I think

Sudename Fri 01-Aug-14 13:54:05

Oh well done hrh

Cumberlover76 Fri 01-Aug-14 14:22:16

Yay, happy HRH grin

RiverTam Fri 01-Aug-14 14:28:51

brilliant, HRH!

HRHsherlockssextoy Fri 01-Aug-14 18:04:44

Saw this on tumblr

Sudename Fri 01-Aug-14 18:11:57

Official Hamlet release photo

Yeah hopefully it will be auburn batch on stage

HRHsherlockssextoy Sat 02-Aug-14 10:06:58

Hmmmm auburn batch

RiverTam Sat 02-Aug-14 14:02:24

auburn batch is not my fave, I must say, but I don't think I'd be quibbling over hair colour, tbh grin.

HRH - d'you know what different ticket prices there were? All I have is between £30 and £62.50, and of course not everyone I'm buying for is agreeing on how much they want to spend.

Sudename Sat 02-Aug-14 16:55:42

A new one

HRHsherlockssextoy Sun 03-Aug-14 22:26:16

Those with orange membership still txts available fir opening night

I reckon there will more tickets released tomorrow as well.

Get in the queue nice and early on barbican's site. Well before 10

RiverTam Sun 03-Aug-14 23:02:51

oh really? Thanks for the tip, I'll be at work for 9, will get on then!

RiverTam Sun 03-Aug-14 23:18:23

think this is my favourite Comic Con picture, such a gorgeous smile.

happy happy happy, joy joy joy.

RiverTam Mon 04-Aug-14 08:52:17

morning! I am in the pre-queue. I had terrible anxiety dreams about these tickets last night, that's really sad, isn't it blush? 43 years old. Shocking.

ABlandAndDeadlyCourtesy Mon 04-Aug-14 09:07:53

Good luck River!

PrincessTheresaofLiechtenstein Mon 04-Aug-14 09:51:53

In the queue too. Fingers crossed for tickets that coincide with my birthday.

RiverTam Mon 04-Aug-14 10:04:17

it's started! My poor colleagues, I am boring them with where I am in the queue. Seems to be moving pretty fast though.

HRHsherlockssextoy Mon 04-Aug-14 10:20:49

Where are you tam
In the queue?

I tried and I am 3995, it moves quickly as you get closer to 0

RiverTam Mon 04-Aug-14 10:23:28

478 at the mo. Started at 651 at 10a.m. so that's pretty quick, I think.

I'm not tied to any particular date which is handy.

PrincessTheresaofLiechtenstein Mon 04-Aug-14 10:28:27

1898 here. This is painfully slow.

RiverTam Mon 04-Aug-14 11:10:04

well, I'm in and it's not working properly, I am stuck at one point and can't go any further.


PrincessTheresaofLiechtenstein Mon 04-Aug-14 11:17:52

Oh no! Am at 1137. fingers crossed for you river.

RiverTam Mon 04-Aug-14 11:19:04

well, I've lost it now, it froze so then I refreshed it and it booted me out, so now I'm back in the queue in 8000th place or something stupid.

I could cry.

why is no-one making me a cup of tea???

PrincessTheresaofLiechtenstein Mon 04-Aug-14 11:24:16

sad brew

RiverTam Mon 04-Aug-14 11:31:04

thank you. A colleague has made me an actual cup of tea too, and I have chocolate gingers too, which is something.

sigh. Maybe I'll just stick with Sexy Dwarf in the Crucible smile, he's a fine figure of a man too and no mistake.

Sudename Mon 04-Aug-14 11:36:27

Good luck ladies - I never bought a membership so will have to wait till next week. Am not fussy about a date hopefully there'll be some left tjough

Sudename Mon 04-Aug-14 11:46:04

Something nice to look at while ye ' re queuing
brew cake

RiverTam Mon 04-Aug-14 11:48:32


Sudename Mon 04-Aug-14 13:33:48

Any luck ladies?

RiverTam Mon 04-Aug-14 14:17:41

not yet, I've moved from being 8000+ in the queue to 4500, which is something, I guess. I've stay on it till I leave work and then try again this evening, I suppose.

DH was very upset on my behalf, bless him!

HRHsherlockssextoy Mon 04-Aug-14 14:32:40

Phone the box office. You'll wait 5 minutes!

RiverTam Mon 04-Aug-14 14:55:11

I've phoned the box office about 40 times - it rings an engaged tone twice then goes dead.

Maybe I'll try from my work phone blush.

RiverTam Mon 04-Aug-14 14:57:22

yep, same from work.

sigh. Fortune vomits on my eiderdown once more.

RiverTam Mon 04-Aug-14 16:12:04


holy moly, what a stress that was.

How did everyone else get on?

HRHsherlockssextoy Mon 04-Aug-14 16:28:27

Great! When are you going?

RiverTam Mon 04-Aug-14 16:30:17

3rd September. I wouldn't go for the date I'd originally gone for in case it jinxed it!

OnlyLovers Mon 04-Aug-14 18:35:51

God, Tam, did you really spend all day in the online queue? shock

You deserve those tickets for sheer perseverance.

I think I'll apply on 11 Aug with the rest of the hoi polloi. I feel strangely sanguine about the dead cert possibility of not getting them; much as I like him and good as I think he'll be, I've sat through many a production of Hamlet before and still don't really get it!

RiverTam Mon 04-Aug-14 21:03:32

yep. Got into work at 8.45 and joined the pre-queue, then got into the queue when they went on sale at 10, in about 650th place, 50 mins later was in and doing my booking when something went wrong, so back in the queue again at about 11.15, in about 8200th place. Finally booked tickets at about 4pm!

I didn't actually have to do anything apart from glare at my screen and moan to my colleagues. They were very long-suffering, bless them, Fortunately, I didn't actually have any work to do today grin.

I did feel determined, after forking out £40 for a membership which I probably won't make much use of (DH likes a lot of Barbican art/architecture exhibitions but the card is in my name grrrr).

It was epic, I tell you, epic.

Sudename Mon 04-Aug-14 22:31:02

Hope you're having a nice glass or two after your epic battle wine * Rivertam*

HRHsherlockssextoy Mon 04-Aug-14 22:42:21

Your story is one of fortitude tam

I couldn't believe there was 8000 in the queue at one point

Sudename Mon 04-Aug-14 23:13:13

Think I'll buy a membership tomorrow as there'll be shag all left for Monday and that will be some mad day trying to book

RiverTam Tue 05-Aug-14 09:24:10

I didn't have a drink, though I was sorely tempted!

OnlyLovers Tue 05-Aug-14 09:26:44

<<round of applause>> Tam.

The Barbican is FAB. Give us your card and I'll use the membership if you won't. grin

RiverTam Tue 05-Aug-14 09:37:28

<takes a bow>

steady on, Only. What would you recommend? DH wants to go to the Digital Revolution exhibition, which does look good and good for DD. I used to go to the theatre there a lot when I was studying Classics, I remember seeing a particularly blood-spattered performance of The Bacchae in The Pit when I was about 17.

RabbitOfNegativeEuphoria Tue 05-Aug-14 09:47:03

I'm going (with DD2). smile it was quite stressful in the queue yesterday but obviously not as stressful for most since I entered it at number 200 which I thought was high till I checked on twitter and saw people in the mid thousands. It was more stressful than booking for the Tennant Richard II (which did a better job of catering for people with existing/longstanding memberships) than this process has done, but way way less stressful than booking for last years Dr Who Prom, the Dr Who 50th convention or Kate Bush. I understand from friends it was a walk in the park compared to getting a SDCC registration for the first time though.

RabbitOfNegativeEuphoria Tue 05-Aug-14 10:10:45

From the apple store event earlier this year

OnlyLovers Tue 05-Aug-14 11:29:35

Tam, yes, Digital Revolution looks good. Also City Visions and Jean-Paul Gaultier.

Someone told me that one of the cinemas is very beautiful and comfortable, although I haven't been personally.

RiverTam Tue 05-Aug-14 12:18:35

me neither, they show intelligent films there, rather than the usual drivel stuff I watch grin.

Maybe I could see The Imitation Game there, could be one they'd have on!

OnlyLovers Tue 05-Aug-14 12:38:20

Well, they've got Guardians of the Galaxy on at the moment so it's not all highbrow stuff grin

RiverTam Tue 05-Aug-14 12:48:10

really? Well, that's more my kind of thing!

Sudename Tue 05-Aug-14 14:04:41

A bit of frankenstein theatre Batch to whet the appetites wink

RiverTam Tue 05-Aug-14 14:19:49


RiverTam Tue 05-Aug-14 16:16:27

hot and cheeky

Sudename Tue 05-Aug-14 17:34:06

He was on fire literally at SDCC

HRHsherlockssextoy Tue 05-Aug-14 20:15:51

I was in hampstead today stalking shopping and taking son for a walk.
I got lost loads of times

Sudename Tue 05-Aug-14 20:18:27

I read he's in Italy HRH

Sudename Tue 05-Aug-14 20:40:42

Gratuitous butt shot

Have any of you seen this?

I got Little Charles...

I also meant to report that although I missed Benedict in Boston, there was a car parked in my hometown with a vanity licence plate that read "Smaug". Alas it neither contained our hero nor was it a Jaguar. sad

Sudename Wed 06-Aug-14 08:03:30

Did you have a nice holiday Needsagreencard

I got little Charles too which is funny cause I remember doing a quiz about which BC character you should date and I got Charles there too. . .

Sudename Wed 06-Aug-14 13:44:26

Got tickets for 19th October. All the stalls are basically gone now though. I'd say it will sell out on Monday

HRHsherlockssextoy Wed 06-Aug-14 18:37:40

He has appeared on vanity fair's best dressed.

All of this is ridiculous. People and I'm sure b have stylists to dress them but anyway when he officially goes out, he looks amazing.

Anyway he says where his blue shirt comes from and what he smells like. I bet they don't stock it in super drug.

Cumberlover76 Wed 06-Aug-14 19:26:55

Well done all those that have tickets. Bit gutted I can't afford it right now as love BC and Hamlet..... Never mind you'll all have to report back.

That are is the finest.

SugarFinney Wed 06-Aug-14 19:48:38

We are on holiday and I'm watching this in dismay. Even if there is anything left on Monday I can't spend all day waiting online and we are restricted to weekends only hmm

HRHsherlockssextoy Wed 06-Aug-14 21:29:10

Found on tumblr

I also meant to report that although I missed Benedict in Boston, there was a car parked in my hometown with a vanity licence plate that read "Smaug". Alas it neither contained our hero nor was it a Jaguar. sad

Ack, don't know why that posted twice!

Thanks Sudename, hols so far are great. Weather is still gorgeous (24°C). We've spent a lot of time hiking, letting the kids swim in mountain pools, and tomorrow we're off to an amusement park. The only downer is that the condo is out in the sticks (read: fricking bears and moose - and zero mobile reception). Am at odds with the amazingly crap telly on offer here, but it does explain a bit about how my countrymen are behaving (devolving?) these days.

Keep the links and pics coming - the condo has WiFi so I can ogle from the comfort of the loo.

Sudename Thu 07-Aug-14 12:48:20

Some shots from Poland earlier in the year

Sudename Thu 07-Aug-14 15:03:01

HRHsherlockssextoy Thu 07-Aug-14 15:08:55

Poland batch is so hot on a par with con batch

Sudename Thu 07-Aug-14 15:54:14

Another one from SDCC.
He's spoiling us today

HRHsherlockssextoy Thu 07-Aug-14 18:56:52

sude on a different theme

That chair is sooooo lucky, i wish i was that chair

Sudename Thu 07-Aug-14 22:00:33

Oh lucky chair - he's so fricking gorgeous

Sudename Sun 10-Aug-14 17:37:04


Mr November hubba hubba wink

HRHsherlockssextoy Sun 10-Aug-14 18:28:06

Mine arrived this week, calendar that is. There's a big colour poster in the middle too.

It's large too....

RiverTam Sun 10-Aug-14 21:59:29

Parade's End is on Drama! Though it's nearly finished.

There's a pointless post if ever there was one.

HRHsherlockssextoy Mon 11-Aug-14 11:06:45

Hamlet general seats on sale this morning via barbican. More than 20,000 in the queue!

Go via ATG

RiverTam Mon 11-Aug-14 11:43:37

wowsers! Glad mine are all sorted, not stalls but good circle seats, very pleased.

OnlyLovers Mon 11-Aug-14 12:57:15

Only 2070 people in the queue ahead of me. hmm grin

Feeling quite sanguine about it actually. Hamlet is dull not my favourite, good as I'm sure he'll be.

And there will be tickets on sale later too, although I suspect they might be the kind that you have to queue overnight for, and NO ONE is worth that in my book.

Congrats to all those with tickets already!

RiverTam Mon 11-Aug-14 13:00:35

well, that's dropped pretty quickly, Only. Fingers crossed for you!

I also felt quite sanguine after my first disappointment when it all went tits up last week, rather surprised I got tickets at all.

I wouldn't camp out either, sorry Benedict!

OnlyLovers Mon 11-Aug-14 13:06:07


Sudename Mon 11-Aug-14 13:49:03

Ordered my calender today - feel like a teenager again lol

Cumberlover76 Mon 11-Aug-14 14:22:28

out of interest i just joined the queue, over 30,000 in front of me! If it's meant to be then my friend will get me tickets. Otherwise i'll just have to make do with the cinema.

OnlyLovers Mon 11-Aug-14 17:12:35

Got tickets! I think I'll have to take my opera glasses though grin –they're in the 'cheap' seats.

SugarFinney Mon 11-Aug-14 17:39:16

Seems to be sold out completely. And there were still over 30000 in the queue ahead of me sad

At least it avoided the dilemma of whether I could get to London mid-week - not really.

Maybe the run will be extended due to unprecedented demand

FrankelandFilly Mon 11-Aug-14 18:54:13

Just bear in mind that the theatre holds 2,000 people and there are 7 performances a week so that's 14,000 tickets available per week! They are holding back 100 per performance and I wouldn't be surprised if they had held back others.

It will sell out, I'm sure but some of the press reports have been a bit hmm

RiverTam Mon 11-Aug-14 19:09:14

brilliant, Only!

I thought it was a 1000-seater theatre? Still a lot of seats but I reckon it'll sell out by the end of the week, amazed there are still tickets, tbh!

FrankelandFilly Mon 11-Aug-14 19:23:57

Sorry, you're right the theatre is 1,100 Seater, it's the Hall that's 2,000. The Barbican site is showing as sold out, but tickets are still available via other sellers. I'm preparing to eat my words grin

HermioneWeasley Mon 11-Aug-14 19:43:01

Blind item of gossip today implying that the actress who plays Lady Edith dumped him because he got all "fifty shades" on her.

Check out celebitchy if you want the full article.

<watches cumberbitches melt at thought of BC with handcuffs>

FrankelandFilly Mon 11-Aug-14 20:28:48

I read an article claiming he was dating the actress that is staring in the Fifty Shades film. To be fair though, he seems to get linked to every woman standing within 10 feet of him! There was that awkward article in one of the tabloids a year or two ago claiming he was dating "a mystery blonde" along with a photo of him in a car with said young lady. It was his niece hmm

HRHsherlockssextoy Mon 11-Aug-14 22:07:59

Fifty shades of grey is a bit dull. I'm disappointed in him really. But he did go to public school so......

OnlyLovers Mon 11-Aug-14 22:44:42

That gossip about him and the Downton actress is a bit old. And, I suspect, untrue. Sounds like a mix of tenuous speculation (they were photographed at a party together) and someone's fantasy about Benedict and slightly grubby sex. grin

Cumberlover76 Tue 12-Aug-14 08:47:05

Frankenstein Trailer. Looks like I'll just have to make do with this rather than Hamlet.

Sudename Tue 12-Aug-14 11:50:40

I'm waiting on my new washing machine to arrive - what an exciting life I lead

I give you truly sexy Poland Batch

Cumberlover76 Tue 12-Aug-14 13:39:06

Ooooh Sude, utterly delish.

RiverTam Tue 12-Aug-14 13:43:44

very nice, keep 'em coming, I'm having a right old dull day at work!

Sudename Tue 12-Aug-14 13:44:53

Still waiting on the washing machine ffs!
Any requests?

Sudename Tue 12-Aug-14 14:12:00

Some more
Wonder where he is now we could do with fresh pics

RiverTam Tue 12-Aug-14 14:15:43

very dapper. He always looks like he has such nice clean hair, doesn't he? Except when he's Khan, of course, when he's a lovely sweaty mess.

Khan pics? If your taking requests? (I do actually have some work to do now sad).

RiverTam Tue 12-Aug-14 14:16:08

your?????? you're!

Sudename Tue 12-Aug-14 14:19:10

For you RiverTam
Think I have maxed out my pics for the day

RiverTam Tue 12-Aug-14 14:26:28

sigh. I need to watch it again, I really do.

thanks Sudename! That'll get me through the afternoon. Hope your washing machine turns up soon!

Sudename Tue 12-Aug-14 14:36:35

I'm off out hubbie is here he can wait for it lol

Sudename Tue 12-Aug-14 16:31:46

According to cumberbatchweb BC won't be attending the Emmys due to his filming schedule. Now while I was hoping for a bit of suit porn I'm glad to see him working and wondering could Yellow Birds be on the cards?

WallinoMio Tue 12-Aug-14 21:59:05

Wait wait wait....did someone upthread say he was in Italy...?!

SugarFinney Wed 13-Aug-14 07:36:03

Italy? Where in Italy? We will be in Venice from Saturday

Sudename Wed 13-Aug-14 10:22:21

Sorry sugar I read he went on to Greece and is apparently back in the UK now

ColinFirthsGirth Wed 13-Aug-14 14:58:30

Gosh the thought of Benedict being into hand cuffs and bondage is making me go all hot and bothered! I so so wish I could go and see him in a theatre show. The train from where I live to London is very expensive. Maybe one day .....

SugarFinney Wed 13-Aug-14 16:17:37

I'm not having much luck this week what with failing to get Hamlet tickets. Did anyone else not get tickets at all, if you tried? Tbh it's probably for the best as it's difficult to get to London without DC and would be a very expensive weekend. Though he is worth it, of course.

SciFiFan Wed 13-Aug-14 18:10:26

BC into bondage!! Wibble.....

Been away for a bit on my hols so here's a piccie to get me back in the swing of things grin

Sudename Wed 13-Aug-14 18:40:38

Bondage Batch imagination goes into overdrive

HRHsherlockssextoy Wed 13-Aug-14 21:56:38

Yep, I have tickets. I have red membership because I just wanted to make sure I has tickets.

There's always the £10 seats and I'm not sure if other agencies have some. Theatre breaks?

I read an article awhile back about public school boys loving the whips and chains. Hmmm. I really hope it's true that story. Apparently it's an old one though
