Benedict Cumberbatch descends on Whoville in ‘The Grinch’ this Christmas

It’s now officially ‘official’ in my book. Benedict Cumberbatch can do anything. In the upcoming remake of the 1957 Dr Seuss classic story, The Grinch affords the star of Sherlock and Doctor Strange the opportunity to show his extraordinarily grouchy, unforgivingly heartless and downright mean side.

As most P1’s of Tellyspotting are well aware, I’m not a huge fan of remakes. I’m all on board with prequels. Remakes, not so much. That said, the forthcoming November release of Kenneth Branagh’s ‘remake’ of Agatha Christie’s Murder on the Orient Express may go a long way to alter my future close-mindedness. Sir Kenneth will not only co-produce and […]

What’s next for Benedict Cumberbatch? Playboy Patrick Melrose in Edward St Aubyn’s “Melrose”, of course.

If you’ve ever really wondered why it takes so much time between Sherlock series, one only has to look at the ever-expanding day planner that charts series star Benedict Cumberbatch’s daily life activities.
