Of all the people in the world who were literally born to be in Downton Abbey, we are sure you would agree that Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch is top of the list.
However, with his commitments playing the iconic London detective in the hugely popular Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss modern day twist on the classic works of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, as well as starring in just about every blockbuster film cinema has to offer, the prospect seemed only a dream!
But now, it would seem, he has found the time to join the cast of the show!
Before you get too excited, he only joined them on a trip to the cinema, but we would like to hope that they spent this time trying to persuade him what a fantastic idea this would be (despite him previously branding the show as f*****g atrocious!)
Cumberbatch, who picked up the award for Actor of the Year at the recent QC awards recently, joined the likes of Allen Leech, who plays Tom Branson in the hit ITV period drama and his Sky Sports host girlfriend Charlie Webster, and Jim Carter who plays Mr Carson to cheer on Dan Stevens at the premier of his new film The Guest.
Meanwhile new footage of Benedict Cumberbatch has emerged of him, and his fellow Star Trek: Into Darkens cast mates, larking about on set.
