More than probably i'll be just a rebloger (since i lack talents XD); but since i have wide and varied tastes you will see a lot of variety aroud here.
So far you will find mostly BBC's "Sherlock". And of course some of my men ;)
Other things that may drop by: art, music, weirdness, geekness, fun, other TV shows....etc etc etc
What you won't find here at all: Irene Adler, Avengers, Hiddleston, Elementary. Specially the last two.

Benedict was a hugely simple decision for us. Sue and I were watching the film Atonement. We saw Benedict Cumberbatch and we’re thinking, ‘Oh he looks like a Sherlock Holmes.’ Mark knows Benedict. He instantly thought that was a good idea, so we just sent the script ot him and he came in and read for us, and we all though, ‘Well it’s just not going to get better than that, is it? That’s perfect.’ And we cast him. He is the only person ever to have been sent that script for the part of Sherlock Holmes and the only person to have auditioned for it. So it was as simple as that.
He’s very good with words, and has such a very strong, assured way with language. And that’s because he possesses those qualities himself. He can play quick thinkers, and people who are mercurial, and that’s a real gift as an actor.
When you become as successful as Cumberbatch has, something strange happens: Being yourself in the eyes of others becomes harder. His godmother’s grandson is obsessed with Sherlock Holmes and everything to do with him. ‘One day he said, “Gran, what relative am I to him?” “None,” she said, “I’m just his godmother.” “Yes, but doesn’t that mean you’re related to him?” “No. He doesn’t really exist.” “But I’ve seen him. Do you think he wants to meet me?

It always has been hard to remember Sherlock Holmes is a fictional character

He’s a genius. There are certain actors who have the ability to take a line of dialogue and add a ring to it that you didn’t even know you put into the dialogue, into the line. And he’s one of those really brilliant actors. Just listening to him talk…you could enjoy him reading the phone book.
Sequels are about your bad guy. Because your first movie is always about the becoming of [the hero] and your bad guy has to test that hero in a very significant way. And he’s an incredibly formidable presence. He’s amazing. Are you going to be scared of him? Shit yeah!
Julian Fellowes has known me since I was born. Dan Stevens is one of my good friends — one of my closest friends in England — as is Michelle Dockery.
The Sherlock star talks about life as a sex symbol - and his starring role in Star Trek 2
With his mop of curly red hair and oddly angular face, Benedict Cumberbatch hardly has the looks of a typical Hollwood sex symbol.
Yet a series of high-profile roles both on television and in the movies has earned him a growing legion of female admirers…much to his own amazement.
“It’s interesting and it’s something I’m processing,” says newly single Benedict, sounding rather like Sherlock Holmes, the role he made his own in the BBC’s updated version of the Conan Doyle stories.
“It’s new to me and I’m sure I’ll get used to it and find a way of dealing with it, but at the moment, it is quite odd.
“Do I like being thought of as attractive? I don’t know anyone on Earth who doesn’t, but I do find it funny. I look in a mirror and I see all the faults I’ve lived with for 35 years and yet people go kind of nuts for certain things about me. It’s not me being humble. I just think it’s weird.”
Judging from his career, Benedict has a happy knack of being able to adapt to most things. He picked up a best actor award for his take on Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein at the National Theatre and will be returning in a new series of Sherlock opposite Martin Freeman as Dr Watson.
And he is blazing a trail in Hollywood with a starring role in the upcoming Star Trek 2 after appearing in Tinker Sailor, Soldier Spy and War Horse.
In Star Trek 2 he plays the tyrannical Khan alongside Tom Hardy, Malcolm McDowell [SO WELL RESEARCHED!!] and Alice Eve, daughter of actor Trevor, as well as Shaun of the Dead’s Simon Pegg, who plays Scotty.
The film is sure to be a box office hit and cement Benedict’s place on the Hollywood A-list. Yet Benedict, who split recently from girlfriend Anna Jones following the break-up of a 10-year relationship with Olivia Poulet, does not believe it will help his pulling skills.
He’s such a presence and you have to really know what you want to say to him or ask him because it takes such a huge, phenomenal effort for him to communicate with you. You think, ‘I really don’t want to waste this man’s time’. I was myself rather than thinking, ‘I’m a stupid actor; how on earth can I impress someone like this? I don’t know what to say to make me feel worthy of playing this man.’

Sir, you just gained my infinite respect.
Even though I knew what happened at the end, obviously, I cried in the read through. When they read it, the last episode, when we read Reichenbach. It was quite embarrassing, I sat next to Martin. It wasn’t as embarrassing as watching it on the last night, arh, on the, on the night itself. Everyone was at Martin Freeman’s house and, uhm, Martin was there (points to her right) and his wife was sat at his feet. And Amanda was crying and (laughs) so was I, and I tried to pretend that I was just going (laughs) I tried to sort of laught it off, but that just turned into this enormous sob. It was infront of absolutely everyone and I was like ‘oh brilliant’ because I was there like (pretends to cry) but at the end I just found it terribly moving.
