WHAT THE FUCK YOU EVIL TROLL. WHAT DOES IT MEAN.
steven moffat sits at his desk, eyes scanning over his latest piece of work. he suddenly pauses and angrily tears the script into pieces. ‘no!’ he exclaims. ‘this still makes too much sense’
[ 30 DAYS OF CUMBERBATCH ]
[ Day 21: Favourite Real Person Ship ]The clincher with Martin was, the chemistry was instant. Martin’s presence in the room changed the way Benedict played the part. — Steven Moffat
I suppose, like with John and Sherlock, chemistry either happens or not and you can’t really manufacture it, and you can’t really do anything but hope it’s gonna happen. I’d liked Benedict from a distance. I’d liked his work for a long time and I was looking forward to working with him, but then there’s no guarantee that you’ll sort of work well together, and thank God, we have, really, you know, because, yeah, we’re two quite different people. — Martin Freeman
It’s such a close relationship, Watson and Holmes. And I think, for all their adversity and the prickliness of Holmes and how that does often come … well, sometimes comes to a crisis, at least, with Watson and Holmes, in order for that to really work onscreen, it’s got to be with two actors who get on very well. — Benedict Cumberbatch
I think there’s a friendship instantly between Martin and Benedict. They’re not at all like the parts they play. At all, really. But the relationship between them really informs the much pricklier onscreen relationship, because obviously Sherlock’s a quite cruel man at times and John’s quite a put-upon man at times, and you won’t buy that, you won’t enjoy that unless you absolutely feel in every scene and in every heartbeat that there is that proper, underlying warmth, that real proper solid friendship. And that friendship has actually happened between Benedict and Martin. And that’s what - the value of that you get on screen. — Steven Moffat
+ Although I absolutely have to mention that I am also very much in love with Benedict/David Tennant or Benedict/Jonny Lee Miller… ♥ Well, the truth is, Benedict seems to have great chemistry with all co-stars and since I have my slash goggles on more often than not… I might ship a few more ;D
Sounds like Moffat’s a big fan of the two :D
The MOFFATS have SPOKEN.
They ain’t pleased. Now need Gatiss to comment to complete the trio.
I really don’t mind CBS trying the idea out… But NOW of all times? REALLY?
/SITS HERE ENDLESSLY AMUSED
GUYS GUYS IT’S POCKET!MARTIN. AND MARTIN TALKS ABOUT BENEDICT’S DIET. SERIOUSLY. PLATONIC MY ASS.
BENEDICT WANTS A POCKET MARTIN FOR A PET. Also, notice that he uses personal pronouns when talking about Sherlock and Watson…
Best summary for Sherlock I´ve seen so far. The Cut is great! And the Interviews are adorable <3
Benedict Cumberbatch as The Master? | #DWLineConSteven Moffat: “Don’t you think my life is confusing enough? And listen, if John Simm could hear you, you would not live another hour. He came up to me after the press [junket] for the End of Time where he’d been saying ‘I think now that David has left as The Doctor, I would have to leave as The Master’ but then he pulled me aside and said ‘I didn’t mean that! And look at me, I’m fit! I’m OK!’ So Benedict has to wait in line probably. But how confusing would it be? All four cheekbones at once! I tell you, I stood between [Matt Smith and Benedict] in a photograph once. It’s a really good way to look extra ugly.”
