It might have escaped your notice but we're kind of in love with Benedict Cumberbatch.
Ever since we started watching Sherlock, we've enjoyed seeing him unravel cases at breakneck speed and show off his brain power. Sure, he may not have the same intellect in real life (we're not sure we'd want him to anyway) but we do admire the way in which he manages to enthrall the audience, with his inimitable performance. We probably don't even need to mention that kiss with Molly Hooper.
Last year, he also wowed us as the baddie Khan, opposite Chris Pine in Star Trek Into Darkness. While Pine may have the classic Hollywood looks, it was Cumberbatch's high cheekbones that caught our attention, even when he was trying to kill all of Captain James T. Kirk's crew.
But we're not just here to talk about that face or his gravelly voice, we're here to admire him for his brilliant work *cough*. So, without further ado, here are some of Benedict's best moments off and on screen. Just don't call us Cumberb*tches.
