I just had the chance to interview this amazing woman, and I couldn’t NOT ask her about Benedict. I had to ask about her meeting him and drinking with the guy. Her response? Funniest thing ever …
"He is utterly, utterly lovely. When Sherlock started in our country, I’d already seen it because I was a TV critic. So when it first broadcast, I was up on Twitter going, ‘Women, believe me, you’ll want to turn your televisions on in ten minutes.’
"So I was watching Sherlock again, and I was drinking while I was watching it. The first couple tweets were like, ‘As you can see, this is a very quality drama.’ Then, the third one was like, ‘God, he’s beautiful.’
"Then, the fifth one was, ‘I would climb him like a tree. I would do him until security pulled me off, and then, I would wank at him from behind a door.’ I was becoming increasingly hysterical, because he was so beautiful.
"What I didn’t know was that the entire cast and crew were together at Steven Moffat’s house, and Steven Moffat was on Twitter. I know him, and he was following me and reaching over to pass his iPhone to Benedict every time I tweeted and showing Benedict all my tweets.
"So as consequence, when I met him on the set a couple weeks later to do a feature about it, he looked slightly nervous. But he’s just so lovely and oddly teenaged. Apparently, I got him into Radiohead, which is really cool.
"Plus, if you get him drunk, he’ll do impressions of Sherlock and Smaug the dragon. You couldn’t find better company if you tried. He’s utterly adorable. When you get to know him, you can even call him ‘Benny.’"

Louise Brealey, the actress who plays Molly Hooper in BBC’s Sherlock, asks her followers on twitter what they think Molly gave Sherlock for Christmas. These are some of her favorite suggestions.
Well that’s akward for Molly, because Heart Slices on Specimen Slides is what John got Sherlock.
Caitlin Moran wins again for most creepy suggestion, IMO
Caitlin Moran is my spirit animal.
BOOM CAITLIN MORAN. JUST BOOM. THAT WOMAN IS LIKE JUST ASKDJLALSKDFJ. She always pops up being awesome, and somewhat odd, but awesome!
“it should look like it’s borrowed from the man in your life,” Vogue explained, over shots of tweedy, boyish, single-breasted numbers.
This of course, would be fine if the man in your life is Benedict Cumberbatch in Sherlock, who rarely has less than a grand’s worth of hot and alluring tailoring hanging on the peg by the front door. Were I to wear a coat borrowed from the man in my life, however, I’d be pitching up to smart dinners in a bright yellow pac-a-mac, decorated with one of Thomas Yorke’s trademark of a sad, abused panda.
