Sharing the Cumberlove!
So as some of you may know, I was extremely privileged and lucky to not only get to meet Benedict this past weekend, but actually spend some time with him. I know how incredibly fortunate I am and if I could give each and every one of you the opportunity I had, I would! But since I can’t do that, on the last day of the convention I decided to do a little Sherlock shopping for tumblr to further spread the Cumberlove.
I bought a Sherock poster, 2 gorgeous Sherlock prints by Stewart Mckenny (a very talented and prominent Australian artist) who was kind enough to hand sign both of them, and a badge with an amazing print by Jason Palmer (bigger version here)
The convention had just about run dry of Sherlock/Cumbermerch by this time so I’m sorry there’s only 4 prizes!
In order to share in this Cumberlove:
- You absolutely do not have to be following me!- Reblogs and likes both count!       - I will ship absolutely anywhere, because there is no limit to the Cumberlove.- Giveaway ends April 21 :)

My kingdom for a Holmes: detective duo both play Richard III

Cumberbatch and Freeman are the latest in a line of distinguished actors to tackle the role

IT IS the mysterious case of Sherlock Holmes and their parallel careers: Benedict Cumberbatch is to star as Richard III in a television film while Martin Freeman is preparing to play the hunchback king on stage.Cumberbatch, who has appeared as Holmes in three series of the BBC drama Sherlock, has been cast as the last Plantagenet ruler in a film to be shown on BBC2 next year. Freeman, who plays Dr Watson, will portray the monarch in London from July.

As well as appearing together in Sherlock, both actors also star in the Hobbit trilogy — Freeman as Bilbo Baggins and Cumberbatch as the voice of the dragon Smaug. The two actors, who are close in real life, play unlikely yet devoted friends in Sherlock. Cumberbatch’s Holmes is a seemingly emotionless obsessive while Freeman’s Watson, a war veteran, is his fiercely loyal but often exasperated foil.
