We are the Benedict Cumberbatch Appreciation Society - or BCAS (which is pronounced Beecass, not B-C-A-S). This is a highly esteemed organistion with two founding members - BB and HAN. We are not the average fangirl stalkers mind.... oh no. We do have other things in our lives apart from stalking a certain someone, but it should be recognised that Mr Benedict Timothy Carlton Cumberbatch deserves some recognition for his AWESOMENESS and general gobsmacking acting. We can't promise that we will blog all the time, but hopefully keep up with the latest Cumberbatch gossip as well as our reviews and ramblings. If you feel you are a worthy Cumberbatch supporter, feel free to subscribe, comment and input into the newly founded shrine for this amazing actor. Cheers.

Well Slap Me Twice and Call Me Sherlock

Hello our grand total of 0 subscribers so far! Its HAN here. I thought it would be a great way to start to explain how I came to see Benedict Cumberbatch first act on screen, which it fact was quite a happy accident. It was over the summer last year and I just casually decided to plonk myself in front of the sofa and watch the telly. What started as as casual channel flicking sesh, quickly turned out to be an hour and a half of pure excitement and toe tingling joy. For what I saw - by pure chance and unfeasible good luck - was 'A Study in Pink' the first episode of the series 'Sherlock', starring his beautiful curly haired self as Sherlock Holmes and Martin Freeman as Dr. John Watson. 'Sherlock' is a modernised series of stories inspired by the 'Sherlock Holmes' books by Scottish author, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Well slap me twice and call me Sherlock, it was GOBSMACKING. I was riveted from the very first second to the rolling credits. The combination of Cumberbatch and Freeman's show-stopping acting and the catchy, lightning fast, witty and Einsteinianly genius script made this average Sunday night transform into a day of enlightenment.

After finding out completely by coincidence that BB had also watched the episode, we spent over an hour gassing about the plot, the quotes and whether he would have taken the pill (but anyway, we'll leave that for another blog post) whilst playing a game of table tennis - as you do, as you were, as you like it. From then until now, I have strived to watch as much BenMaBeb acting as possible - as much as a hectic teenage life will let me anyhow.
So there we go, that how I discovered my role model and number one dude, Mr Benedict Cumberbatch.
More soon,
