Yet more from Mr Cumberbatch…

February 29, 2012 at 5:54 pm by greendragon  - 

The initials BC must stand for ‘Busy Chap’.  Benedict Cumberbatch is set to become the darling of geeks everywhere (if he isn’t already); not content with being the star of Sherlock, with a lead part in the next Star Trek movie, and with not one but TWO roles in The Hobbit movies, rumours abound that Cumberbatch will be the next incarnation of The Doctor’s greatest nemesis, The Master.  According to this report, Britain’s Daily Express tabloid newspaper ran an article stating, ‘It’s fitting that the Doctor comes face to face with his ultimate enemy The Master for the 50th anniversary and it’s felt Benedict is the perfect choice if schedules can work.’

Exciting times for fans of Cumberbatch’s work!  Doctor Who, The Hobbit, Star Trek, Sherlock – where will he pop up next?  Hmmm – an actor from Star Trek taking a trip to Middle earth – remember the result the last time that happened?  What’s that – you don’t??  Well, let us remind you.  *insert evil laugh here….*

     I’d rather see him as the Doctor himself, just so he could be around longer, but the Master works fine as well 🙂
    Also, I hope they manage to give his Master Martin Freeman as a sidekick… those guys should do everything together xD

  2. Lovely to have him be a “busy chap” cause we could eat him up with a spoon……

    Okay, yes he is cute. But my darling will alway always always be my Elijah Wood, He will always be my darling darling darling. 😀 lol

    In answer to your first statement, he’s definitely mine already. I adore him in Sherlock (and am a fan of the ACD books), can’t wait to see him in The Hobbit (and a fan of the books, as well as the PJ LOTR adaptions), and now plan to see the next Star Trek movie (though not really a fan) because I’m keen to see him play a villian (and beat up Zachary Quinto ü)
