  1. The radio sitcom about a rather small airline (an air 'dot' as they only have 1 plane) is being repeated on Radio 4 from the beginning. I don't know if iplayer for radio can be accessed outside of the UK, but if you haven't heard Cabin Pressure, it's definitely worth it. Cabin Pressure and for a silly little taster...
  2. Here's a bit of news about the forthcoming Black Mass: https://twitter.com/cumberbatchfrm/status/593306063950188545
  3. I'm starting this thread for general articles about episodes that are summaries. Like this one: http://www.cultbox.co.uk/features/lists/top-5-sherlock-villains
  4. Well I think this movie deserves a thread of its own, seeing as both of our wonderful Sherlock stars are to feature in it! Here is a Hobbit for your delectation: So, just how much are you looking forward to this?
  5. This popped up on my Facebook feed with no explanation ... not that I needed any ... which scares me, somehow.. :D Anyway, I got Sherlock. Of course. :P http://www.answers.com/article/31001099/quiz-are-you-sherlock--khan--julian-assange--christopher-tietjens--ford--patrick-watts-or-smaug?paramt=again
  6. This just popped up onto my Facebook newsfeed... The filmed version(s) of Frankenstein are being released into theaters (probably UK only) on Oct. 30.
  8. Someone posted this on Twitter... is this just a British pronunciation??? Or can he just not say it?
  9. Radio Times is doing their TV champion. The Drama category started today. From Sherlock (not necessarily representing it) are Benedict, Mark, Amanda, Martin, and Louise (all winning so far). Voting for this round is open for about 48 hours total. If you want to vote go here. They have several TV categories for voting with the winners in each category going against each other for the ultimate champion. In Drama David Tennant and Aidan Turner have the most votes by far 20k+ and 19k+ respectively for this first round. Whoever wins in Drama will go up against the winners of Factual, Soap Opera, Comedy, Reality, etc. The pictures are about the size of an actual finger nail so to help you find our cast by pairings (counting down the left side then the right): Benedict #7, Mark #8, Amanda #9, Martin #11, and Louise #27
  10. Okay, well as of today, if not by this moment, Hamlet may be completely sold out for it's 3-month run. Luckily... I got a ticket. Woot!
  11. Dear All: Belated greetings for 2016to all!! This is has been driving me nuts since I first found it on my Tumblr dashboard about a month or so ago. I've attached the picture of the subject line topic to this post. It's at this point that a little background is in order. "Desiderata" ("all things desired") was written in 1927 by a lawyer/poet named Max Ehrman. It begins: "Go placidly amidst the noise and haste And remember what peace there is in silence." The picture is one of someone's arm (either Benedict's or Sophie's) The tattoo reads: "You are a child of the universe No less than the trees and the stars, you have a right to be here." My question is twofold: Whose arm would that be and who would be more in keeping with the above quote--Benedict or Sophie? I thank you kindly for hearing me out. Cheers always, Shezza.
  12. I am opening a new topic for this rather than using the other thread, for I tried to do a write-up and had almost every single sentence in spoiler tags, since most of you won't have had a chance to see this yet (aside: that is so weird for a European to type, I can't even tell). So beware: This thread will be full of spoilers. I'm still going to spoiler-tag the huge, storyline-relevant ones that you really, really shouldn't read before seeing it, but the minor ones will be out for everyone to see. If you feel that reading stuff like (TINY SPOILER WARNING): There's a cameo by a Tribble is going to detract from your enjoyment of this film, please turn away now and come back once you've seen it. ****** Okay, spoiler gloves coming off now. ****** Star Trek 2 opens in unfamiliar surroundings (the crimson forest seen in the trailer) and ends in very familiar ones, That's the film in a nutshell - it bridges the gap between old and new, nods towards TOS and introduces fresh concepts, weds existing canon to new storylines. Amazingly, it does so fairly gracefully. It seems to have the potential to lure in both old Trekkers and newbies, a feat in and of itself - and it's also beautifully shot (but why oh why must those 3D films be so dark?) and fun to watch. A bit to hectic at times, but certainly never dull. The Enterprise's new crew seems more at ease with their roles now, and their interactions are great to watch. In fact, if there's one thing I truly missed, it was more of a chance for the crew to shine - Kirk and Spock and their relationship are very much at the center, while the others could definitely have used more screen time. They do make the most of what they're given, though, and Dr. Marcus fits in well. Both Pine and Quinto really own their roles this time. They play off each other beautifully, and manage to make both their differences and their friendship feel genuine. Pine's Kirk is both cocksure and vulnerable at times, and while the first film was about his finding his way into the captain's chair, this one is about his proving he truly has what it takes to lead. Spock, still visibly shaken by the loss of his homeworld, is trying to find his place and his path, and alienates both Kirk and Uhura along the way. Spock Prime makes a brief appearance, too, and it's a joy to watch the two of them interacting (I'd be so freaked out by another me, but Vulcans seem to take it in stride). By the end of the film, That being said, let's move on to the part you're probably reading this for : Benedict Cumberbatch's performance as John Harrison. He's beyond amazing. Bringing a deadly stillness and an earnest gravitas to this role, his John Harrison is genuinely terrifying. Much has been said about the prison cell scenes, and rightly so - they're pitch perfect - but there's one scene in the sickbay, where Harrison just sits, ramrod straight, and then calmly turns to watch Kirk with those glasz eyes, that makes a shiver run down your spine. Harrison's aloof and deadly, secretive, a brilliant fighter both with weapons and words, and very much a complex villain. His fight scenes are a blast to watch (and show an increased degree of confidence in BC's movements that I can't wait to see in season 3), and there's a great scene after the first big melee My favourite scenes, though, are the ones where Pine and Cumberbatch really pull this off amazingly and it's pure joy to watch these two different yet alike characters in that situation. J.J. Abrams leaves the franchise with a beautiful, upbeat ending and the potential for a great new beginning, and one can only hope that whoever takes the helm next doesn't squander that. Exiting the cinema to the sound of the classic score, I left with a huge smile on my face. eta: There's a little scene that has to be an actor allusion of sorts near the end of the film. There's that massive crash from the trailer, and Spock tells the crew to scan the wreckage for Harrison's life signs (paraphrasing here cause I saw the dubbed version). Sulu (iirc) protests that there's no way anyone could have survived that and Spock basically responds that oh, he could. Cue to them finding life signs and putting the signal on the screen, and Harrison jumping off the wreckage to the baffled exclamations of the crew that he could take a leap off somewhere that high .
  13. Here's the video of Stephen Fry and Sam Claflin reading the nominations for this year's BAFTAs
  14. Haven't seen this mentioned anywhere else, so just a reminder that the final episode of Cabin Pressure is apparently now available. I admit I don't quite understand how it works (Can you only listen at the listed times? And is that my time? Or BBC time?) but anyway, here's the link ... maybe some of you who are more familiar with BBC Radio can explain how this works? Or you can do what I did for the other episodes, and wait for some kind soul to post it on, ahem, YouTube.... http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b04vf25d
  15. Stumbled upon this old, but sweet interview on Radio Times; if it's been posted already please delete this thread! Couldn't find anything but that'd be par for the course for me. Meet the women who love Sherlock Holmes Bonus link, from the "recent news" tab: Classic Cumberbatch! Two dozen (no, really) YouTube video links for the (quote) "terminally Cumberbatched" .
  16. Just heard this on Twitter. The timing will be great, actually, in anticipation of the Sherlock Christmas special. Will help build more hype.
  17. I found this on BBC America's site earlier today. Round 1 voting happens until Friday at 11am EST. I found some of the match ups hard to decide who to pick because of the talent pool. We are lucky so far in that none of our beloved Sherlock cast are against each other yet. To vote go to http://www.bbcamerica.com/anglophenia/fan-favorites/men-2014/round-1/
  18. here's the latest... http://variety.com/2014/film/news/fandango-inks-deal-with-access-hollywood-to-air-digital-video-series-1201342999/
  19. In case you missed it, here is the link for the full show: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kfZu2C1fux4#t=2334 Enjoy!
  20. Honestly could you think of a better way to spend a day? This would just be heaven! It WOULD be worth the cost of an airfare for me to the UK (and it's a LONG way away) http://www.nationaltheatre.org.uk/support-us/individual-memberships/young-patron-membership/win-the-chance-for-you-and-a-friend-to
  21. I recently read an article where BC is quoted as saying he would love to do a romantic comedy. I thought... Yes that could work. Then I thought
  22. Anyone can vote here... the TV Choice Awards. Please note that SHERLOCK and Benedict Cumberbatch are nominated in their respective categories. But vote as you see fit. http://www.tvchoicemagazine.co.uk/awards/2014
  23. How hard can Benedict punch? Apparently quite hard, according to Tom Hardy in this interview regarding "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy"
