Sherlock: Benedict Cumberbatch’s hair turned GREEN & it seems he’s a bit temperamental!

sherlock benedict cumberbatch 1

It’s hard to imagine, seeing as his long brown curly locks are somewhat of a trademark these days, but when Benedict Cumberbatch went to film the show’s pilot, his hair was green!

Now since Sherlock has taken off we have seen many a change to Benedict’s hair, from length to colour, but it was his role of Van Gogh before Sherlock was created that could have had us all looking at a very different Baker Street sleuth.

Sherlock Series 5 to air in 2015? Could it be true?

sherlock johns stag do

Honestly we can’t keep up with the rumours surrounding the next series of Sherlock and we personally think this amuses Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat immensely.

READ: Sherlock: Mark Gatiss promises to explain Moriarty return, did he fake his own death too?

When the third series of Sherlock ended earlier this year it was to an overbearing cry of ‘when will series 4 air?’ We were pacified with promises that production on the new series would start as soon as possible.

Game Of Thrones’ Kit Harington ‘f*cking’ HATES Downton Abbey!

kit harington game of thrones

When we think of Kit Harington we imagine him to be a dark, brooding but mild mannered man, one who thinks carefully before he speaks and very calmly delivers his well thought out opinions when they’re fully formulated.

In a new interview the Game Of Thrones star proved that he’s much more feisty than we could have thought and all it took to bring out his fiery side was the mention of Downton Abbey.

Maxine Peake dismisses Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch’s posh woes as he joins Madagascar!


Silk star Maxine Peake has laughed off Benedict Cumberbatch’s claims of unfair stereotyping when it comes to his posh accent and roots.

Now, one of the things we have always loved about Maxine Peake is how down to earth she is, but we have to admit she is bordering on blasphemy by mocking our Sherlock hero.

In The Flesh series 2 final review! Was Maxine’s reveal all building to series 3? (Spoilers)

Luke Newberry

If this year’s series of In the Flesh had a theme then it was definitely the negative effects of right wing politics on a community. The arrival of Maxine Martin in Roarton really stirred up people’s unresolved feelings about the PDS sufferers and soon the majority of the characters employed a them and us approach. Obviously we knew that Maxine had another agenda and hadn’t just arrived in Roarton to announce the controversial PDS giveback scheme. Her quest, just like Simon’s, was to destroy the first risen and tonight we found out just what Maxine’s motives were.

In the Flesh

Series two of in The Flesh draws to a close this evening and it’s set to be a dramatic affair, with many storylines being neatly tied up and a few left open, which may suggest the commission of a third series.

On tonight’s show the residents of Roarton will all be preparing for the annual winter fete and boundary march, all except for Kieren. He’s being held captive by Steve and is awaiting the moment when he’s brought back to his old treatment centre, where he will be punished for ‘non-compliance.’

From There to Here final review: Philip Glenister brings the series to a disappointing close….

Philip Glenister

In my review of last week’s From There to Here I noted how it would take some sort of miracle to make me feel that Peter Bowker’s drama was anything else but a rare misfire from the writer. Having now watched tonight’s finale I can say that this miracle didn’t occur and in fact that tonight’s episode was possibly the weakest of the three that have come before. I have to say that through segments of the third and final episode I was utterly bored and there wasn’t even an interesting set piece the likes of which we’d seen in both of the previous instalments. Additionally the two most likeable characters, Daniel’s wife Claire and his mistress Joanne have very limited roles in this finale.
