Yep, I'm glad the makers waited until after Xmas.  So I wouldn't have to have withdrawals.   I got the series on DVD.  ;D

Do you think they'll take down the extras they have on the website?  The interviews - short as they are - are very enjoyable.

One of the DVDs I got for Xmas was the movie Creation, the story of Charles Darwin and the writing of his book The Origin of Species starring Paul Bettany and his wife Jennifer Connelly.  I had just settled down to watch the movie when who should appear in a minor part but Benedict Cumberbatch!

I realized I've already seen him in other movies as well Atonement and The Other Boleyn Girl for example.  Now I'm going to rent Amazing Grace so I can see him in that as well.  :)

I like it a lot.  Unfortunately, I had to go out last night and only had time to watch the first episode.  Maybe when it returns in the spring they'll repeat the first three.  I did get to see the third episode when it was playing on PBS.

Season 2 isn't until next November.

Martin Freeman is doing The Hobbit and he is using the 2011 summer break in filming to shoot Sherlock before flying back to New Zealand.

My DVD of Sherlock is on its way!

Della, I envy you your Cumberbatch festival! I definitely need to get at the very least Creation. I saw the trailer, but missed the film which didn't play very long due to the Avatar monolith in town.

Thanks!  I am surprised that I've already seen him in things.  Go check out my review of Creation on the movie thread.
