Summary: In the beginning, there was Sherlock Holmes. And Holmes brought forth the brilliant doctor House, embodied by the lovely Hugh Laurie. Who prior to that in Fortysomething played a slightly less brilliant doctor, Paul Slippery, who begat three sons, the eldest of which was played by the equally-lovely-if-somewhat-peculiarly-named Benedict Cumberbatch. Who of course grew up to play Sherlock. And the Universe looked upon its work and pronounced it good. And then my head exploded.
Seriously. This is one of the all time best posts of Benedict Cumberbatch I have ever seen. I love theatre, and one of the reasons a feel about Benedict the way I do is his passion for it. Bless this post.
Can’t wait for the day someone can add Hamlet to this photoset!
