ooh, your 3rd pic, Frankel has just given me a little frisson down below.

HRHwheezing Wed 12-Feb-14 18:46:50

frankel all lovely. Fuck Lydia hurst.

cumberlover that is lush. A bargain, do you think they'd send it to me?
I opened it up, squealed in excitement. My husband who's sitting near me, asked what I was getting excited about

If he only knew.

Ah MrsO a woman after my own heart. I was settled into a gentle and non-time consuming crush on Richard Armitage (well Lucas North really) then series 3 came on and BAM. Am cumberbitch.

MrsOakenshield Wed 12-Feb-14 18:55:21

I completely missed the Lucas North years as I ditched Spooks when Matthew McFadyen left (se? shallow. I abandoned Being Human when Mitchell buggered off to be a dwarf too), and as I now know what the ending was I'm not sure I could watch it. I'm more Mr Thornton and Thorin, of course.

I know HRH, my DH knows I've got a bit of a crush, but he's a bit used to that with my previous crushes on Brian Cox and David Tennant, but my love for BC is something else. Thank god he doesn't know how much time I spend talking about him on here, perving at photos and videos and listening to audio books! None of my previous crushes come anywhere near my Cumberobsession, the gorgeous Benedict just does something special to me which I am sure all of you lovely ladies understand!

There will be a video of the BAFTA NY talk that's happening tomorrow. Busy boy isn't he as he was in Helsinki last week, then back for Elementary on Sunday, NY tomorrow then back for BAFTAs in London on Sunday!

Ah, what a good reason to go back and revisit my personal favourite. Can't NOT like the CumberCocksock.

Mrs Oakenshield, have you seen the outtake of Khan in the shower? Reduces me to a gibbering mess EVERY TIME.

Just went back to start reading the Vogue article. Am I the only one who finds it incredibly ironic that a man who, up until about a year ago, could not reliably dress himself without winding up in the blog WhatAreYouWearingBenedict, is now being profiled in one of the biggest fashion rags mags ever?

That being said, I completely admit that I read "phallic" instead of "profilic". Whoops.

And I hate that second shot of him walking down the street - it looks like they photoshopped a small poodle onto his head. (Apologies to small black poodles everywhere, esp. if they are named Snoopadoo)

Inglori0us Wed 12-Feb-14 19:56:27

Fuckity fuck. Just remembered my YouTube account is linked to my Virgin Media tv and recently viewed videos are automatically put into a folder. Can't see how to delete it. It's all Cumberbatch.

Cumberlover76 Wed 12-Feb-14 20:04:08

Oops Inglorious time to set up a new Batch Tube account. Any DCs you can blame the Cumberfest on? If not quickly view lots of other vids!

Badvoc Wed 12-Feb-14 20:04:33

I really didn't see what all the fuss was about til that kiss.
I get it now.

Inglori0us just go back and watch some other stuff until the BC stuff gets pushed out. Porn maybe? Perhaps a teenager in the house you could blame it on? ;)

Have all the Cabin Pressure episodes, Neverwhere, Copenhagen and Casanova on my phone so I can listen when I do drudgery around the house. Headphones are a must.

Khan Shower Scene <wibble>

HRHwheezing Wed 12-Feb-14 20:13:13

greencard I have bought headphones. <nods wisely>

I do feel like I'm 21 again. I'm starting to develop a collection of stuff. GQ magazine etc, that in older days I would have laid out faithfully on my bed and looked at and daydreamed about. I love this feeling that I'm 21 again. I love the fact their are blogs now and ebay and youtube that I can Goggle at him pretty much for most of the day

He does that to me. I love it

Cumberlover76 Wed 12-Feb-14 20:18:04

Agree HRH. It's much easier to compile tons of Cumberporn with the amazing internet than it would have been when I was a teen. I also love how he inspires my adoration.

BornToFolk Wed 12-Feb-14 20:24:48

De-lurking and checking in. I'm another one that didn't get the appeal until Sherlock series 3 and is now avidly watching anything I can get my hands on. I even re-joined Lovefilm just so I could rent Star Trek. I've got War Horse coming next. What else do I need?

Inglori0us Wed 12-Feb-14 20:36:25

Don't think I can blame my dd. She's not even 2 yet!

Cumberlover76 Wed 12-Feb-14 20:40:47

If you check out his profile on it lists everything he's been in Born. I'd recommend Parade's End, it's a 5 part series and was available on Virgin, not sure about other providers. Still lots I need to see but have to slip them in every now and then so DH doesn't notice too much!

FrankelInFoal Wed 12-Feb-14 20:46:01

BornToFolk you need:

Starter For Ten
Stuart: A Life Backwards
The Other Boleyn Girl
Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy
Star Trek Into Darkness
The Fifth Estate

Sherlock (obvs!)
Parade's End
The Last Enemy
To The Ends of The Earth

That should keep you busy for a while, but do consult for more!

FrankelInFoal Wed 12-Feb-14 20:47:48

Cumberlover beat me to it grin

BornToFolk Wed 12-Feb-14 20:50:45


I've seen Parade's End. I did really enjoy it but I hadn't been Cumberbatched at that point so I might re-watch it. I've seen Atonement too and don't actually remember him in it...hmm

I'm in grin

my DP was an extra in The Imitation Game and was often within feet of Benedictenvy

Cumberlover76 Wed 12-Feb-14 21:10:25

Inglorious if the OH finds your YouTube Cumberfest just say it must have been DD trying to find him on Sesame Street wink (slight S3 spoiler).

Welcome Serotonin, any BC goss to share from DP?

Loftyjen Wed 12-Feb-14 21:46:33

How have I only just discovered this outpouring of BC love?! Marking my place & (while sure you'll have all seen this before), would like to bring you all this:
(On phone so guessing it's not going to link properly - sorry)
