“Benedict Cumberbatch: Here’s how Sherlock survived his fall”


Spoiler: It’s not really a spoiler. But it does involve a small stuffed monkey. Naturally. From EW:

They couldn’t be on stage in person. But they made a really fun video. Heavily in-demand Sherlock stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman taped a greeting to fans attending the show’s first-ever San Diego Comic-Con panel, where the producers dished about the upcoming third season.

In the video below, Martin has a brief bit from The Hobbit set. While Cumberbatch says he’s tired of keeping secrets for all his big screen roles like Khan in Star Trek: Into Darkness and Smaug in The Hobbit and decides to solve the cliffhanger that has everybody guessing — how Sherlock Holmes survived his rooftop plummet at the end of season 2.

The video isn’t embeddable, because this is a sweet linkbait trap on EW’s part. But it’s definitely worth your time if you’re a Cumberbatch fan. And who isn’t?

Here’s a spoiler for the video. What does a hobbit look like in sunglasses? Like this:

Gotta admit it: Star Trek did me in. I resisted as long as I could, but I’ve been Cumberbatched. I regret nothing. He could not be more adorable, here.
