Oh no, you’re not Benedict!’ I thought I was losing my mind. I think the other guy got a bit of a fright too!” —Andrew Scott on winning his BAFTA [x]
“Just before we started filming ‘Reichenbach,’ [Andrew Scott] sent me a picture of him outside Tower Bridge just going ‘mwahahahaha.’ Obviously without the laugh, but it was implicit he was laying plans for us all.” —Mark Gatiss, “The Hounds of Baskerville” commentary
Hey, I saw your video on YouTube (the "Call Me Maybe" one) and I just wanted to tell you I thought it was fantastic. Well done.

“On set Martin [Freeman] kept saying, ‘Oh yeah, you went to fucking Hogwarts, didn’t you?’.” —Benedict Cumberbatch, talking about his boarding school education.
