His(Benedict Cumberbatch’) off-screen persona hasn’t always been so stylish: “I’ve been quite a late developer on the clothes front, but I’ve suddenly realised it is one of life’s joys.”

“There’s a man who knows his threads,” nods Cumberbatch, admiringly. “He’s a very natty dresser. He gets stuff made and is always coming in with new pairs of shoes so I’ve been watching his clobber…” So much so that his credit card was recently declined after a birthday spree at Selfridges.
“That’s when I realised that I’m changing my habits!”
