I spent my winter break catching up on the work of the amazingly talented actor Benedict Cumberbatch. I do this. I find some thing that captures my attention (Boy Meets World, typewriters, Harry Potter) and then collect everything I can about it like trading cards. Benedict is my most recent victim, so, accordingly, I’ve been hunting down everything he’s ever done. I can’t really help it. In a few months I’ll probably be freaking out about Downton Abbey or ravenously consuming the complete works of Sylvia Plath (or something), but for now it’s Mr. Cumberbatch. The happy result of these random obsessions is they lead me to finding all sorts of interesting things that teach me something, make me think, or at the very least bring a little joy into my life, and now I’m going to share these discoveries with you (aren’t you lucky?). So, here’s a (sort of) annotated list of (some of) the works of Benedict Cumberbatch.
