There Is A "Sherlock"-Themed Café In Shanghai

It’s basically a shrine to Benedict Cumberbatch, who is absolutely massive in China.

The Chinese just love Sherlock. The first episode of the new series got three million views overnight when it launched in January on the Youku video site. Meanwhile, fans have been posting fan fiction online and musing on a theory that Sherlock and Watson are gay lovers.

The Chinese refer to Sherlock and Watson as 'Curly Fu' and 'Peanut', as these monikers resemble the Chinese pronunciation of their names.

Fancy going there yourself? It's called 221B Baker Street (but is found at 50 Ruijin Er Lu).
