Benedict Cumberbatch when asked about series 4 at San Diego Comic Con, which caused Steven Moffat to facepalm and regret casting such a loose-lipped, hopelessly romantic man as his main hero when secrecy is the one thing needed to pull off “making television history”
Do you think Sherlock really wants to connect to another person?
Benedict: What I think that he learns is that in order to be the best consulting detective he has to do that. To understand people better he has to become more of a person. It’s not just sentiment that makes him do it, it's effectiveness, as much as anything else. This friendship, he utterly relies on that, he’s loyal to Watson, Watson is loyal to him, because he takes him into the world in a way that makes it possible for him to function better as a detective, that's primarily where the friendship is formed.
Is it a real friendship? It seems like everyone in his life has some sort of a function.
Yes, that’s coldly true, but I think through that, as it’s the case, you form an affection. What maybe weakness to a degree, for other people that are trying to attack him, and use those soft points, those targets. In the end it makes him a greater person. It sounds a bit soppy this but…Love conquers all.
It’s February! That means it’s time for #28DaysofBlackCosplay. Starting off with teeny tiny Thor. (As always, if you know the cosplayer, let me know so I can give proper credit, my harddrive is jam packed with pics I’ve saved over the years)
