Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch makes it onto the Broadcast Hot 100 list!

Benedict Cumberbatch, who of course stars in BBC detective drama Sherlock, has been named on Broadcast’s Hot 100 list as one of the UK TV’s “most creative and successful people.”

And it comes as no surprise that he has, given he has an enormous fan following and is the thinking woman’s pin up!

He’s made the prestigious list along with magician Dynamo, This Is England star Vicky McClure and comic Jack Whitehall.

Additionally, Sherlock and Doctor Who writers Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss are on the list, as is Moffat’s wife, Sue Verture, and Fresh Meat writers Sam Bain and Jesse Armstrong. Gavin & Stacey and Stella star Ruth Jones has also been named on the list…

Lisa Campbell, who’s the editor at Broadcast, said, “Broadcast’s Hot 100 reveals the leading lights in the worlds of TV, radio and multiplatform.

“Just one fifth of the people in this year’s list appeared in Broadcast’s last published Hot 100 in 2010, keeping a rapidly evolving industry alive in challenging times.

“Key themes that can be drawn from the list this year include the escalating commissioning sway of Sky; the undeniable resurgence of appointment-to-view blockbuster drama; the cinematic vision of our best craftspeople and the shifting sands of the digital world.”

Here’s the full Hot 100 list…
