Vote! – Who will be the Thirteenth Doctor?

London is a bit like Vegas. There’s usually very little in life that passes by on a daily basis where you can’t get some sort of odds at both William Hill and the local Ladbrokes betting shop. One can only imagine with the recent news that Peter Capaldi would be moving out of the Tardis […]

Jimmy Fallon’s Mad Lib Theater with Benedict Cumberbatch

It’s official. There is nothing Benedict Cumberbatch cannot do. After seeing the star of Sherlock and Doctor Strange this past week on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, I am convinced that the party word game, Mad Libs, was invented in 1953 by Leonard Stern and Roger Price with Benedict Cumberbatch in mind.

Doctor Strange takes a break on E. 32nd Street

One can only imagine Sheldon’s reaction had Benedict Cumberbatch, as Doctor Strange, entered Stuart’s Comic Center of Pasadena on Big Bang Theory. While, most likely, not outwardly showing his excitement like he would have done had Professor Proton entered the store, I’m guessing that it could very well have been the first known case on record of spontaneous […]
