Sherlock: Benedict Cumberbatch stalked by neighbour on Twitter!

by Anna Howell

Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch found himself at the centre of his own little mystery when a neighbour decided to stalk him via social networking site Twitter.

Cumberbatch, who plays the title role in the epic and popular BBC detective series, Sherlock, was astonished to discover that his every move inside his very own house was being reported by an unknown person via the networking site.

The user wrote messages including: “Cumberbatch has his Sherlock hair back.”

And then, when asked if she was using binoculars, she wrote: “No need.”

Speaking to the Telegraph newspaper, Cumberbatch revealed his feelings on the incident which he described as “strange”, explaining:

“It was such a strange and a direct thing to see these tweets saying what I was doing as I was doing them,

“I found it really worrying, and, yes, of course, very hard to deal with”

However, much like his BBC alter ego, Cumberbatch put his Sherlock hat on and Discovered who was Commenting on his life and put a stop to it in his own way, without involving the police.

Speaking to the publication Cumberbatch, who recently revealed that he and co-Star Martin Freeman have signed up for a fourth series of the hugely popular show, continued:

“I worked out after a while who it was who was doing it so, when it came to it, I didn’t actually call in the police, but I was prepared to do so.

“I’m not going to say any more about it. The person concerned knows now what I felt about it. I just found it very hard to come to terms with the idea that an individual could look into my house like this, and talk about me online, and think it is a perfectly okay thing to do.”

The filming for series three of Sherlock is due to commence within the next few weeks, watch an interview with Cumberbatch in the clip below:
