I’m surprised, he’s usually so gracious about press attention. Sherlock is the BBC’s biggest international series. If it was on-set then it makes sense to me - it’s not like they were following him buying milk or something… idk, not long ago Cumberbatch seemed so grateful for the attention and sky-rocketing career. Besides… Egypt might be important but if the world only focuses on political chaos - what kind of civilization will be living in. The arts is what lifts us and unites us all.
