ALRIGHT SHERLOCK!

I like how they really tried to stress just how close this was to Baker Street.

Asked about the attack by The Sun, the actor responded: "I did it out of, well, I had to, you know..."

It was the only way.

Now we know.

Benedict Cumberbatch is the way the English spell BLAST HARDCHEESE!

Journalism really is going down the shiatter. They couldn't spell his name wrong even once.
 
2018-06-02 1:57:39 PM  
The Uber driver helped him out too. I wonder how they rated each other on the app?
 
2018-06-02 1:59:18 PM  
He didn't shout "By the eye of Agamotto"?

If being bashed over the head with a wine bottle means Cumberbatch will hug me, I'm booking a trip to London and hanging around Baker Street.

He's 41?

I thought he was a lot younger. Must be the thin stature.

How surreal would it be to be mugging someone and then suddenly some famous actor dude is yelling at you to stop and pulling you off your victim?  That would be so disorienting and confusing, you'd just be like "What the fark is happening right now?  Is this real?"  I'd run away too.

I would do so many things to that man.
 
2018-06-02 3:52:55 PM  
He must have a bad P.R. rep since this happened back in November last year.
 
2018-06-02 4:19:07 PM  
The one time it's actually a story about someone literally putting their physical safety at risk to save another person from danger, and the use of hero is unambiguously correct... TFA goes for the sarcasm quotes?

Is one of the Independent's editors on more drugs than usual today?

batlock666: He didn't shout "By the eye of Agamotto"?


"I've seen all 24 million endings to these attackers' fates.... And they all end with me winning, motherfarkers." - Cumberbadass, probably.
 
2018-06-02 6:09:46 PM  
"And exactly how many times did he fall out the window?"

"Oh, it's all a bit of a blur, Detective Inspector. I lost count."

Naido: What's a Deliveroo driver?  Is there now a service that delivers Underoos?


Naw, it's a delivery service for restaurants that don't have their own. Some reasonably large brands such as Burger King and Pizza Express use it for delivering their crappy food. I think Uber Eats may be doing the same kind of thing in the US?

Similar, but different in the UK is Just Eat. Which is sold to delivery places purely for taking online orders. They don't use branded cyclists/drivers like Deliveroo does.
 
2018-06-02 7:48:07 PM  
Out of the millions of ways Benedict calculated how he could save the delivery bicyclist, there was only one way to save him. This was the way.
 
2018-06-02 8:04:04 PM  
Was he wearing a cape?
 
2018-06-02 8:46:21 PM  
"Alright, so, me and the lads were near Baker Street, right? We was fightin' this daft delivery boy o'er fifty quid when, out of NOWHERE, we get blindsided by Sherlock Holmes! SHERLOCK F**KING HOLMES! Bloody crazy, it was!" :P

Benedict Cumberbatch is his superhero name.

Did he scream "Do you want baritsu?" at the muggers before they ran off?
