Benedict Cumberbatch is seriously in the running for the title of The Bloke What Looks Best In A Waistcoat
He’s not the new Darcy, unfortunately. He’s playing Dr Frankenstein and Frankenstein’s monster on stage , alternating with Johnny Lee Miller (our most recent Mr Knightley.)
The ‘Sherlock’ star is building up a massive fangirl following, which I, as an ardent admirer of a proud, tall man with a mass of curly hair and a quick wit am determined to be part of.
I know it’s not Jane Austen- it’s Frankenstein,which is not a cheerful novel- trust me I’ve had to study it.
But he does look splendid in a cravat.
