Benedict Cumberbatch turns detective to uncover the star-struck neighbour who was tweeting his every move By DAVID WILKES PUBLISHED: 20:27 EST, 13 March 2013 | UPDATED: 04:08 EST, 14 March 2013 (DAILY MAIL)

Sherlock would have been proud!

Mystery: Benedict Cumberbatch, pictured with his former girlfriend Olivia Poulet, was forced to do some detective work of his own

It was a mystery that Sherlock Holmes himself might have struggled to solve – the curious case of the heart-throb actor and the cyber-stalker.

Someone, it seems, was snooping on the home of Benedict Cumberbatch, who plays a contemporary version of Arthur Conan Doyle’s sleuth in the hit TV series Sherlock, and documenting his actions in real time on a social networking site.

Old Harrovian Cumberbatch, 36, was so unnerved he considered calling the police. 

But after some detective work of his own, he apparently discovered the culprit was a star-struck neighbour. 

‘I would say that it was the strangest fan experience that I’ve ever had. I had someone live-tweeting my movements while I was in my own house,’ he said.
