Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch is in this week's Radio Times magazine, discussing his latest project The Hollow Crown, which sees him play iconic Shakespeare villain Richard III.
The 39-year-old talks about the reasons he took on the tough role – "It has some of the most extraordinary, visceral, gut-punching language" – before going on to discuss the "extraordinary bit of serendipity" which led to him being present at the "burial of a king."
