This guy’s 81 and he takes care of his wife who suffers from dementia. All the other couples on the show talked about moving on and getting divorced, but this guy manned up and proved how deep his love really was and I have so much respect for that. Would you do the same for your wife/gf? Doubt it. 

They showed pictures of them in their younger days, and she seemed like a really cool person; and despite the illness making her lost and confused a lot of the time, she still managed to keep hold of a lot of her personality which was so funny and endearing. I don’t even know, this is real life Notebook shit and the cutest (if saddest) thing I’ve seen in a while. 

So the BBC just emailed this to us! Take a look!


First of all – great work on the website and the podcast! As it is Benedict’s birthday today and we at the BBC Global iPlayer are celebrating on our social pages too! Our app and Facebook page are available in 16 countries (Western Europe, Canada and Australia).  

We want to let Benedict’s fans from outside the UK know they can catch some great performances by him on the app. We have ‘Sherlock’ in Canada, ‘Van Gogh: Painted with Words’ in Europe and ‘Small Island” in Europe and Australia for example.
Apart from the shows being available on the app, we’ll be posting a gallery of photos from said shows on our Facebook page, including some behind the scenes pictures from the first series of ‘Sherlock’ for fans in Canada. As we are the international version of BBC iPlayer, we are unavailable in the UK, but we can see that many of your followers come from all over the world! If you think your international fans might be interested in seeing Benedict in some of our shows that are on the app, or have any questions about the global BBC iPlayer, please get in touch!
