Sherlock's Benedict Cumberbatch Calls Co-Star's Fan Complaints 'Pathetic'

.....Uh-oh… sounds like we might need to put on a fresh pot of tea to heal the divide between Sherlock‘s stars.

Benedict Cumberbatch, who stars in the PBS/Masterpiece drama as the titular detective, responded to his co-star Martin Freeman complaining that overzealous fans made the show “not fun anymore,” calling Freeman’s gripes “pretty pathetic.”

“It’s pretty pathetic if that’s all it takes to let you not want to take a grip of your reality,” Cumberbatch told the UK’s The Telegraph. “What, because of expectations? I don’t know. I don’t necessarily agree with that… I just don’t feel affected by that in the same way, I have to say.”

Last month, Freeman, who plays Sherlock’s crime-solving partner John Watson, complained that by the fourth season of Sherlock, making the series became “kind of impossible… Being in that show, it is a mini-Beatles thing. People’s expectations, some of it’s not fun anymore.”

Sherlock finished airing its fourth season over a year ago, and there are currently no plans to produce a fifth season. And considering the stars’ busy schedules — and Freeman’s apparent lack of enthusiasm — it’s truly a mystery if we’ll ever see Sherlock and John chasing down clues together again.



it probably won't happen......?!

Well, Daniel Craig also said he'd rather slit his wrists than do another Bond movie. And yet he signed on to do the next one.

He has a baby on the way. Maybe wanted to set up a trust/college fund. Seriously.

I was surprised at that too. I REALLY REALLY REALLY hope the child doesn't have Down's Syndrome, or anything else.

I think the shine is off the apple for this iteration of Sherlock. It was a great ride but it's tough to write engaging stories for heroes who can't be beaten.

I think Freeman is tired of those 4hr work days and Craft Services. Wants to retire to a quiet life of Shakespeare in the park where the Twitterverse won't erupt over every stupid thing he says.

In fairness, Watson/Bilbo has a point. Season 4 sucked arse.

I think his point was that it would have taken hard work to make it NOT suck arse and he doesn't want to put the work in.
