Benedict Cumberbatch’s mum, Wanda Ventham to appear in Holby City!

October 16th, 2014 by Anna Howell.

Benedict Cumberbatch’s mum, Wanda Ventham, is to make a guest appearance in Holby City next week.

Fans of the ridiculously popular Sherlock star will know that both his mother, Wanda Ventham and his father, Timothy Carlton (real name Timothy Carlton Congdon Cumberbatch), are established actors also.

In fact, you have probably already seen them as they starred in Sherlock last series playing the leading man’s parents in two episodes, not to mention the fact that their uber-famous son called on them to attend the TV Choice Awards on his behalf.

But Wanda Ventham will not have her son, who she worked with on the Chelsea Flower Show earlier this year, or her husband by her side as she makes her Holby City debut next Tuesday evening.

But the Cumberbatch/Ventham/Carlton family are no strangers to Holby City – Wanda’s husband Timothy Carlton, who is known for his sitcom roles such as Executive Stress, Next of Kin and in the television film The Scarlet Pimpernel, appeared in the show himself back in 2011, playing Leslie Clarke-Jones.
