...what is the big deal about Benedict Cumberbatch ? I genuinely don't understand. He seems to be everywhere recently and his engagement garnered a lot of publicity, as well as envy.

Is he a particularly gifted actor ? I'm vaguely aware of some Sherlock Holmes connection. To be blunt he isn't exactly blessed with matinee idol looks.

Standing by for replies and venom grin.

I don't get it either tbh.

He was brilliant on Radio 4's Cabin Pressure.

He looks like a goblin. I really don't get it.

He's brilliant. Years before Sherlock he played Stephen Hawkins in a TV Movie and was amazing.

He brilliant in Sherlock, Tinker Tailor, Soldier, Spy and The Hobbit.

I love him.

Talent is not all about looks you know.

I think he's talented, but I don't fancy him a jot. Not that I'm into chisel jawed hunks either...I'm moved by a good ugly man - but BC does nothing for me.

He doesn't do it for me, I think he looks a bit reptilian, but I'm sure his mother loves him.

He looks like Voldermort. Total snake face.

YY to being amazing on Cabin Pressure

It's the voice.

I don't get it at all.

It's not his looks that are so attractive, it's something about him and his personality. I've seen him being interviewed and he has a way about him, no idea what it is though blush

Wow, shallow lot

IceBeing Thu 11-Dec-14 21:05:04

yup Id love him in anything because of cabin pressure...although it is possible I love Finnemore more...

Don't worry. You don't have to like/know the work of/admire/fancy every man.

He's an actor. A lot of people like him. Some fancy him. That's about it.

pictish Thu 11-Dec-14 21:05:16

Shallow how?

I can't say his name (or even hear it in my head) without singing it to the tune of Another One Bites The Dust.


I know nothing about him. He does come across as a proper gentleman though, that's quite appealing.
