[x] The lovely Siobhàn Hewlett, who has starred with Benedict in “Fortysomething” and also had a role in “Sherlock” (A Study in Pink) and “Parade’s End” shared this memory

FUN FACT: She has also starred in “Midsomer Murders” (The Maid in Splendour), and in “Henry VIII: Mind of a Tyrant” with Sophie!

“When I was about 25 years old, I worked with two very good actors.[…] Wanda Ventham and Timothy Carlton both embodied qualities which one is fogyishly tempted to look at with nostalgia. I didn’t know at the time that they were married or that they had a son of about 10 who was quietly gestating all the same attributes.
And now, 30 years later, the boy has been let loose. He has taken the form of Benedict Cumberbatch.

[…]It’s rare to the point of outlandish to find so many variables in one actor, including features which ought to be incompatible: vulnerability, a sense of danger, a clear intellect, honesty, courage — and a rather alarming energy. I take no pleasure in feeling humbled, but there’s no getting around it.

He must be stopped.” — Colin Firth.
