It wasn’t hard to see that Sherlock stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman were not expecting to win anything at this year’s Emmys. Neither of them even turned up.

With every trip to the stage leaving him less people to thank!

Guess who Benedict Cumberbatch wants to Play Ophelia in Hamlet!

benedict cumberbatch hamlet

The role of Ophelia in Hamlet has never likely been as appealing as it is right now – As the person who lands this role at the Barbican Theatre gig next, gets to play alongside Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch!

Hamlet, as we have previously reported, was a record breaking sell-out when tickets were made available last month, despite the show not actually taking place for another year, and despite the fact that leading lady has yet to be cast.

Tonight, Paddy Considine returns for what is the first of two films as Whicher is once again recruited as a private investigator in a matter which sees him reunited with a man who kicked him off the police force.
